SCOTT CHARLES ROBERT SCOTT "Bob" Charles Robert "Bob" Scott of Kennett Square passed away on Monday, February 8, 2010 at Chester County Hospital. Bob was born on April 23, 1927 in Seymour, Indiana. He was the 4th of four children born to Gordon and Hallie Leverett Scott. This is where Bob, at the age of 8 first learned to fly model airplanes, which became his lifelong passion. He started out flying models on strings in a circle until he graduated to radio control airplanes that he had to build first and then fly by remote control. Bob loved flying his model planes more than just about anything. He was a member of "AMA" American Model Aeronautics for most of his life and participated in every contest he could. He broke the World Speed record in 1963. Bob served in the United States Navy prior to attending Kansas State College where he graduated in 1951 with a B.S. in Architecture. He then went to Wilmington, Delaware to work for DuPont as a Draftsman. In 1959, he moved his family to Annandale, Virginia and began a long career with the CIA which sent him all over the world, including two years in Vietnam while his family stayed on Okinawa, Japan. He eventually retired from the CIA and went back as a consultant for another 10 years before finally really retiring. Bob is survived by his beloved wife Jeannie Pierce Scott, his loving children, two sons, Thomas Scott of Cincinnati, Ohio, Courtney Scott of Reston, Virginia and daughter Leecie Scott of Bristow, Virginia and Jeannie''s sons Frank Simeone of San Francisco, California, Steve Simeone of Riverview, Florida and daughter Kina Simeone Clark of Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. Bob is also survived by his brother Tom L. Scott of San Antonio, Texas. He was pre-deceased by two sisters, Bernice "Bun" Kruell and Ruth von Unwerth. His marriage to Imogene McClellan ended in divorce. Bob, known as "Bean Daddy" to his Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren will surely be missed. He made the children smile, which always turned into a giggle with his infamous Donald Duck performance. Memories like this, that we have all shared, will warm our hearts forever. In 2006, Bob and Jeannie decided to move back to her hometown, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. They enjoyed sharing their life there with friends and family and taking long walks on the beautiful grounds of Longwood Gardens.
