Obituary for Ronald "Ron" Scott

Ronald “Ron” Scott
1942 - 2018
Ron Scott (also known as Scottie, Grandpa Scott, and Papa Ron), was born to Elsie
Ibberson and William Scott in Preston, Lancashire, England on August 11, 1942. He later
married Anne Gagan of Chorley, Lancashire, England on November 28, 1964. At the age of 16, Ron joined the Army and served in the famous Scots Guards. He served as a cook, stood guard duty in full regalia in front of famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, and was deployed to Africa during his years in the British military. His experience of cooking for the Royal family and other respected people led him to a successful career in the field of culinary arts. He and his family emigrated to the United States in 1971, where he was a professional chef at hotels in Utah and Idaho for the next 15 years. He spent the rest of his career writing restaurant operations manuals for the U.S. Army and then the Navy. The restaurants of officer’s clubs and golf courses at military bases all over the world owe their success today to his attention to detail and good taste.
To his family, friends, and associates, he was known as a man of good humor and quick
wit, always making other people laugh. He was an avid BYU football fan and enjoyed watching
English football. He had a few hobbies, such as art and music and was known for how much he cared for his animals. Ron was a husband to Anne Gagan for 54 years. Together they had four children, and he enjoyed being a grandfather to thirteen grandchildren. Ron loved his family and was very proud of them. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. May he rest in the light of God where perfect peace and comfort are found.
Ron is preceded in death by his parents and his brother David Scott.
He is survived by his wife, Anne M. Scott; children David Scott, Steven Scott, Gordon Scott and Anne-Marie Schoonover; siblings, Laurence Scott, Brian Scott, Raymond Scott and Victoria Margarete Scott Geilman.
Pallbearers: David William Scott, Steven David Scott, Gordon Joseph Scott, Gordon Joseph Scott II, Gabriel Jordon Scott and Troy Gordon Schoonover.
Honorary Pallbearers: Brian Scott, Laurence Scott, Raymond Scott, Jude Benjamin Scott, Thomas James Schoonover, Troy Spencer Schoonover, Parker Britain Scott, Drew Kennedy Scott, Abbie Lin Scott, Samuel Joseph Stous, Sariah Kimberly Scott, Trinity Anne Scott, Reagan Marie Schoonover, and Elyse Caroline Schoonover.
