Born in Columbus, to Harvey and Mattie Scott, Frank spent the first 19 years of his life in his beloved Stillwater County. After some vagabond years working the oil fields of Oklahoma and running grain combines across the midwest, he enlisted in the Air Force in 1950 and was stationed at Luke Air Force Base in 1951.
In 1954, he married Rosemary Morrison. The next year Frank started work on the assembly line at Ai-Research at $1.65 per hour and worked for the company for 37 years, retiring as Vice President of Manufacturing in 1991 from the company that is now Honeywell.
He went to college on the GI Bill while working a 40-plus hour week and still managed to have time to teach Sunday school at the Tempe Congregational Church. After retiring, Frank and Rosemary spent 22 years living half the year in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the other half of the year “Buildin' Mem'ries” at their cabin at East Rosebud Lake in Carbon County, Mont. An avid golfer and fly fisherman, Frank is survived by the “Catch of his Life,” Rosemary, his wife of 59 years. Other survivors include sons, Jim (Janet) and Bill (Molly); daughter, Anne (John Farry); nine grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; brother, George; and sister, Barbara Henderson. Services were held in Scottsdale.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to St. Simon and Jude School Library, Attn: Sister Raphael, 6351 N. 27th Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85017 or the Community Congregational Church, P.O. Box 545, Columbus, MT 59019.
