George Baily Scarlett, II

AGE: 71 • Kennett Square, PA

George Baily Scarlett, II, age 71 of Kennett Square, PA, passed away Wednesday November 9, 2016 at his home in Kennett Square where he lived all his life. He was the loving husband of Dorothy Kirmse Scarlett with whom he shared 40 years of marriage.

Born in Coatesville, PA, on May, 25, 1945, he was the son of the late William J. and the late Anne (Stone) Scarlett.

He attended George School, Rollins College, Penn State, and Tyler School of Art in Rome, Italy. His love of art led to the founding of The George B. Scarlett Gallery and over the years he nurtured many emerging artists. His love of Architecture lead him to a successful career in real estate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Service in Greenville, Delaware and Brandywine Fine Properties Sotheby's International Realty in Centerville, Delaware. He was director emeritus of The Kennett Symphony and an active board member of the Union Hill Cemetery. George was the consummate host. He taught so many to appreciate the finer things in life. He was a true gentleman, with a twinkle in his eye, an infectious laugh, and a generous heart, who always saw the bright side of life.

In addition to his wife Dorothy, George is survived by two sisters, Joan Winebrenner (Parse) and Elsie Anne Gerard; brothers-in-law Andy (Christie) and Steve (Barbara), and close cousins in the Halsted and Jackson families. He was a very special uncle to Anne, Peter, Jonathan, Nathalie, Pierre, David, Christopher, McRae, Lisa and Colby and so many others to whom George was a favorite "uncle".

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a sister Elizabeth.

George's life Celebration service and reception will be held at 11AM on Wednesday November 16, 2016 at the Vicmead Hunt Club, 903 Owls Nest Rd Wilmington DE, 19807. Interment will be held privately. Contributions in his memory may be made to the Union Hill Cemetery Association, 424 N. Union Street, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, 19348 or to the Kennett Symphony, PO Box 72,106 West State Street, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, 19348.
