Ron Scott

December 10, 2018

Ron Scott, also known as Scottie, Grandpa Scott, and Papa Ron, was born to Elsie Ibberson and William Scott in Preston, Lancashire, England on August 11, 1942. He later married Anne Gagan of Chorley, Lancashire, England on November 28, 1964. At the age of 16, Ron joined the Army and served in the famous Scots Guards. He served as a cook, stood guard duty in full regalia in front of famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, and was deployed to Africa during his years in the British military. His experience of cooking for the Royal family and other respected people led him to a successful career in the field of culinary arts. He and his family emigrated to the United States in 1971, where he was a professional chef at hotels in Utah and Idaho for the next 15 years. He spent the rest of his career writing restaurant operations manuals for the U.S. Army and then the Navy. The restaurants of officer’s clubs and golf courses at military bases all over the world owe their success today to his attention to detail and good taste.

To his family, friends, and associates, he was known as a man of good humor and quick wit, always making other people laugh. He was an avid BYU football fan and enjoyed watching English football. He had a few hobbies, such as art and music and was known for how much he cared for his animals.
