Frank Owen Scott

Scott, Frank Owen
July 22, 1929 - October 21, 2013. Born in Columbus, Montana to Harvey and Mattie Scott, Frank spent the first nineteen years of his life in his beloved Stillwater County, Montana. 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 AiResearch 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, Arizona and the other half of the year "Buildin' Mem'ries" at their cabin at East Rosebud Lake in Carbon County, Montana. 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 and six great grandchildren. Services will be at Saint Maria Goretti Catholic Church, 6261 N. Granite Reef Road, on Saturday, October 26th at 11:00 AM. In keeping with Frank's definition of formal wear, jeans are the suggested attire. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to St. Simon and Jude School Library, Attn; Sister Raphael, 6351 N. 27th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85017 or the Community Congregational Church, P.O. Box 545, Columbus, MT 59019.
