"The Story Teller"

On December 3, 1998, the world lost a wonderful man. Elmo Scott passed away due to heart failure, with his loving wife, Lavon, by his side. He was 78 years young.Elmo was born on March 14, 1920, to Seth and Isabella Scott. He was the youngest of five children. He had three sisters and a brother: Jeanette Clyde, Ida Pierpont, Harrison Scott, and Melba Anderson. He grew up in Provo, Utah on a farm. Elmo was always up at the crack of dawn milking the cows and doing chores, which was his greatest complaint, but would help him become the strong man that he was.

He is survived by his wife Lavon, his sister Melba, his two sons Randy (Jodi) and Kent (LaRae), his daughter Kathie, his eleven grandchildren and one great-grandson.

He served his Heavenly Father on a mission to North Dakota, and later on a second mission, with his wife, in the Church Office Building. He served his Country for four years as an Air Force Cryptographer in World War II. After the War, Elmo received his Business Science Degree at the University of Utah (magna cum laude), and went on to become a successful business man as vice president of sales and marketing for Sun Photo Corporation. Later he worked for Mountain Bell where he retired with honors.

Elmos passion was sports. Whether it was baseball, football, or basketball season, you could always find him in front of the TV cheering on his favorite team, especially the Yankees.

Elmo was an honest, caring, giving, and loving man who was always quick to crack a joke and tell a story. You will forever remain in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers.

Funeral services will be held at 12 Noon on Monday, December 7, 1998 at the Wasatch Lawn Mortuary Chapel, 3401 Highland Drive. Friends may call at the mortuary on Sunday, December 6 from 5-7 p.m. and on Monday from 10:45-11:45 prior to services. Interment Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park.
