Scott Douglas Langton, son of Leo and Nelda (Severtson) Langton was born on August 19, 1953 at Camp Legeune, North Carolina. After his father’s discharge from the military, the family made their home at the farm at Crary. He attended school in Southam, ND through the fifth grade, then attended Crary Public School, graduating with the class of 1971.

Scott was united in marriage to Jan Stromme in December of 1971. They lived for a short time in Devils Lake, then built a home on the farm at rural Southam in 1974. This is where they lived, worked and raised their family. It was in 1974 a family business, Langton Custom Harvesting began and continued for 27 years. In 1997, the family made their home in Denver, Colorado and Scott worked for Tuff Shed. In 2005, Scott returned to the farm at Southam and began custom harvesting again until increasing health issues forced him to retire in 2021. In June of 2022, Scott moved into Devils Lake.

Scott was married to Dessarae D. Schill on December 18, 2008. They made their home on the farm at Southam. Dessarae died on May 5, 2022.

Scott never considered combining as work. He loved the harvest time and the farm. He was so proud to have his son take over Langton Farms. He was never idle and was always working on something and was an avid reader.

Scott served on the Hope Township Board for many years, gave his time as a church council member for Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Devils Lake and also enjoyed membership in the Elks Lodge.
