Richard "Dick" Scranton Obituary
Scranton Richard "Dick" Scranton, 86, of Columbus, OH, died Thursday, February 13, 2014. Preceded in death by his daughter Patricia, and son-in-law Jerry Rogers. He is survived by his wife, Rosemary; children, Mary Rogers, Joseph (Lorrie) Scranton, Paul (Cathy) Scranton, Mark (Jenny) Scranton, and Ric (Kim) Scranton; nine grandchildren, two great-grandchildren. Dick was born and raised in Columbus and served in the U.S. Army under General Curtis LeMay in post-WWII Germany as an MP. He had a variety of sales and service positions before setting out on his own. He was the owner of Parts Expeditors Inc, and Union Tire Company. After marrying Rosemary, together they raised six children in the Forest Park subdivision of Columbus. Throughout his adult life, Dick actively supported the Catholic Church as a Lay Minister and Usher, as well as his favorite charity, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The family would like to thank the staff and residents at the Laurels of Hilliard for the extraordinary care they provided; as well as VITAS hospice for staying by his side during his final days to insure a peaceful transition. Family will receive friends Saturday, February 22 from 2 p.m. until the time of the funeral service at 4 p.m. at SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL, 6699 N. High St., Worthington (Just south of I-270).
