Raymond E. Scott “Scotty,” 90, of Bethesda, OH, passed away peacefully at his home, on February 11, 2020.
Born August 23, 1929, Raymond was the son of the late Louis and Luella Scott of Hunter, OH.
In addition to his parents, Raymond is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Ruth; and sister, Mrs. Bessie Bunting of Newark.
He is survived by sister, Mrs. Betty Roe of Spiedel.
Raymond’s memories will be forever treasured by those he sadly leaves behind daughters, Debbie Grimes (Bob Schau) of Bethesda, and Rita (Robert) Schultz of Barnesville; grandchildren, Amanda (Neil) Morrison, Scott Grimes (Sherry Pugh), Ryan (Emily) Schultz, Riley Schultz; and two great-grandchildren.
Scotty was a nurturing husband, a loving father, and a playful grandpa. He was a lifelong resident to Bethesda, and after retirement could be seen walking hand-in-hand with his grandchildren around Beth- esda Park. He enjoyed life most, when he was in the great outdoors, spending endless hours down on the family farm building fences, planting crops and taking care of cattle. He also enjoyed NASCAR and became an avid Buckeyes football fan later in life.
He was a veteran of the Korean War and was honorably discharged February 17, 1953. He was a lifetime member of the Barnesville VFW Post #2792 and the Ohio Operating Engineers Local 18, where he received recognition as a 60-year gold member.
The family would like to extend special gratitude to the nursing staff of Amedisys Hospice, for the care given to Raymond before his passing.
Raymond’s care has been entrusted to Patron Funeral Homes & Crematory Kelly Kemp Braido, where visitation will be Friday, February 14, 2020, from 11 a.m., until the time of the service beginning at 1 p.m., at the funeral home, 322 N. Main St., Bethesda. Pastor Bob Merritt will officiate. Interment will follow at Ebenezer Cemetery, Bethesda.
