Philip Brown Scott

July 29th 1931 – July 16th, 2015

On July 16th, 2015, one week after his 55th wedding anniversary and 2 weeks before his 84th birthday, lifetime San Pedro resident, Philip Brown Scott, passed away peacefully at home. Phil – as he preferred to be called – was the husband of Doris (Lee), the father of Anne, Karen, Paul and Jane, and the grandfather of Ethan, Finley and Everett. From 1950 to 1968, Phil served as coach and mentor for several YMCA swim teams. For more than thirty years, he taught mathematics, art, health and physical education at Richard Henry Dana Junior High School in San Pedro. Retirement gave Phil time to indulge in favorite hobbies, including volunteering. For more than 20 years, Phil and Doris – with help from a devoted group of Friends – coordinated monthly used book sales for the San Pedro Branch of the Los Angeles County Public Library. A Memorial Celebration for Phil will be held at the San Pedro/Peninsula YMCA on August 8th at 2 pm. The YMCA is located at 301 South Bandini Street in San Pedro. Donations in honor of Phil Scott may be sent to the San Pedro /Peninsula YMCA . Please sign the guestbook at mcnerneysmortuary.com or dailybreeze.com/obits.
