SCOTT PARROT Obituary
PARROT, Scott Born on August 21, 1922 in Montclair NJ, passed away on January 4, 2013 in Vera Beach FL. Parrot lived most of his life in Massachusetts, growing up in Winchester, raising his family in Belmont, and his early retirement years in Marion. He was an alumnus of Wyman School in Winchester, Belmont Hill School '41, and Dartmouth College '45. He served in the United States Marine Corps in WWII with the 4th Division 25th Regiment in the South Pacific and received an honorable medical discharge with the" loss of use of a limb". That loss resulted in his walking with the help of his signature cane - and most will remember him by the fact that cane in hand, he was an avid tennis player, golfer, and had no problem getting around on the ice in a rink. After the war he continued to sky dive, maintained a private pilot's certificate, and was a sport parachutist. His family however was always his passion and his pride. He was pre-deceased by his first wife Nonie O'Hara Parrot and their daughter Heidi Parrot Diercks of Concord, and his second wife Eleanor Stover Parrot of Marion. He leaves his present wife Winifred Hubbard Parrot of Vero Beach, Fl, his son Kent, five grandchildren, and ten great grandchildren. Scott was instrumental in the launching of the Winchester Pop Warner program and was a Coach of the Wee Sachems on Westside Field. He established the Youth Hockey Association of America (YHAA) with the help of the Taylor Family (then owners of The Boston Globe) and will be remembered by hundreds of youth hockey players that came from near and far to participate in his hockey programs on Saturday mornings at local rinks in Belmont and Cambridge. Parrot retired from business as the Eastern and International Advertising Manager of the Wall Street Journal. He was a member of the Kittanset Golf Club in Marion MA, John's Island Golf Club Vero Beach FL, The Moorings Club Vero Beach Fl, and The Quiet Birdmen Vero Beach Fl. An Internment will be for immediate family in Winchester MA. Memorial Service followed by a reception, at Belmont Hill School's Hamilton Chapel on Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 1:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to Belmont Hill School or Dartmouth College in Scott's memory.
