Richard Arthur Scott

October 5, 2019


Richard Arthur Scott (1935-2019). His life was well lived and he was well loved! The family was sharing memories about him, right before he took his last breath peacefully at Riverview Hospital on October 5, 2019 in his 84th year of life.  Richard was born in Sandpoint, Idaho to Raymond and Violet (Coulston) Scott who preceded him in death. He was the sixth child out of seven children. 

Richard joined the Air Force, where he traveled the world. He met his first wife, Kazuko “Kay” Kaneko in Japan. They were married for 54 years.

Richard was a veteran of the Vietnam War.  He retired from the Air Force and began working as an Estimator for Quality Plumbing and Heating of Bunker Hill, Indiana.  After retirement, Richard enjoyed traveling, camping, and spending time with his family. 

Kay passed away in 2008 and he moved to Noblesville to be closer to his children.

Richard had a second chance at love and married Marilyn Gholston in 2012. She was by his side caring and loving him for the past 7 1/2 years.

Richard was an active member of the V.F.W., holding an office for many years. He was a member of the Open Door Free Methodist Church.

Richard was a loving and caring Dad, grandpa, great grandpa, brother and husband. A family man all around. He is survived by his children, Michael (Karen) Scott of Olathe, KS, Robert Scott and Rhonda (Peter) Barth both of Fishers, IN and Linda (Jeff) Knoll of Noblesville, IN; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; his older brother, Clyde (Elaine) Scott of Seattle WA; and his second wife, Marilyn Scott.
