Richard A. Shott, 75, of Scottsdale, AZ, victoriously conquered death and entered the presence of his Savior Jesus Christ on Palm Sunday, March 20, 2016 following his courageous battle with ALS. His wonderful passage to heaven was made at home surrounded by family and friends singing The Lord's Prayer and The Hallelujah Chorus.
