Ronald "Ron" Scott was raised in Perry, NY on a farm. He was high school class president and varsity athlete. He was a generous friend, son, husband, father, Gramp and great-grandfather and an active member of the Geneseo Community.
Ron met Pat at George's Restaurant on Main St. in Geneseo, NY. They were married in the Trinity Methodist Church, Albany, NY on July 21, 1956. Pat and Ron happily celebrated 63 years of marriage in 2019. Ron, along with Dave Linton and Bob Eaton, built his Lima Road family home during the summer of 1962. The house reflected Ron, from the hat collection in the garage to the vintage telephones on the walls and everyone's favorite cocktail in the Short Branch.
Ron was proud to be a US Army Veteran. Ron put his all into every job from early mornings on the farm through running a local sharpening business in retirement. During his time at the Rochester Telephone company, he held several different positions and retired as Safety Director. He was well-liked and respected.
In Geneseo, Ron was an active member of the community. Ron was a lifetime member of Geneseo Kiwanis and served in various other organizations including the VFW, Central Presbyterian Church and the Geneseo Fire Department. Ron's generosity, integrity, and charm made him a great friend and neighbor. In addition to his love for his family and community, Ron's love of golf is well known at Livingston Country Club where he could be found at sunrise most days.
