Obituaries from Two Days Ago

Wescott, John Wise*  
John Wise Wescott of Ormond Beach passed away on January 19, 2015. He was born May 22, 1933, to G. Wise and Nancy Watkins Wescott in Providence, RI. During World War II, his father served with the U.S. Army's 509th Composite Group and his mother was ill; thus, John lived with various relatives during the war, including an uncle who was a surgeon. It was then that John decided his life's goal was to become a surgeon and heal people. John graduated from St. Christopher's School in Richmond, VA, in 1951. After graduation, he attended Virginia Military Institute, where he ran track. He earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia in 1959 after which he interned at Georgetown University Hospital. He was commissioned into the U.S. Navy and served in Okinawa, Japan; did his residency in urology in San Diego, CA; and was a Naval surgeon in Philadelphia, PA. He separated from the U.S. Navy in 1968 with the rank of lieutenant commander and then moved to Ormond Beach, where he joined a private urology practice with Drs. Goddard and Jones. He helped to grow that practice into Atlantic Urological Associates and to build an ambulatory surgery center. He was a member of the Fellow of American College of Surgeons (FACS), a member of Volusia County Medical Society, a member of the Florida Medical Association, chief of staff at Halifax Hospital Medical Center from 1982 to 1983, and the chief of surgery at then Ormond Memorial Hospital. He was also a life-long active member of Rotary. An avid runner and cycler, John's favorite way to spend a Sunday was to go for a long cycling ride with his friends, stopping to enjoy a beer at a beach bar along the way. He also enjoyed monthly poker games and annual ski trips with friends. His greatest joy, however, was spending time with his family. He was married for 23 years to Lois Wescott, nee Hertzler; though their marriage ended in divorce, they shared a love for their three daughters: Susan, Kimberly, and Stephanie. He enjoyed visiting his children and eight grandchildren regularly. Being an incredible Dad to his daughters and an involved, extraordinary Pop-Pop to his grandchildren is the greatest legacy he leaves behind. John is survived by Susan and Paul Rowland and their children Zachariah, Madison, and Alexandra; Kim and Chris Kinne and their children Caroline, Kylie, and Cooper; and Stephanie and James Isaacson and their children Emory and Annabelle. Services will be held on Friday, January 30, at 10:00 at St. James Episcopal Church in Ormond Beach. A reception at Oceanside Country Club will follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be sent to the Alzheimer's Association.
