Joseph Vernon Scott, age 91, of Hudson, Ohio, and formerly of Clarks Summit, passed away on Friday, October 13th. His beloved wife of 61 years, Mary Kay Feran Scott, preceded him in death.
Born in Scranton, to Joseph and Teresa Bridget (Gallagher) Scott, Joseph was both a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and also the Merchant Marine Academy where he received an ensign’s commission, serving as a lieutenant in the US Navy during WWII.
He had a long and successful career as a Ford Whiz Kid and President of Chamberlain Manufacturing & Echlin Manufacturing. Joe and his family lived in Clarks Summit for eight years while he owned and operated Superior Fireproof Door of Scranton. He was very active in working with Monsignor Jack Bendik of Our Lady of the Snows Parish in planning for and obtaining funding for the construction of St. Benedict’s Church in Newton. Joe also was the owner of Amweld Building Products.
A man of deep faith with a missionary spirit, he was responsible for constructing a daycare for children, La Guarderia, Cochabamba, Bolivia and many projects through Food for the Poor. His faith and love of children combined to fund several classrooms at Seton Catholic School in Hudson. He was successful while working with his St Mary’s parish in attracting young men and women into the religious life as priests and nuns. His biggest accomplishment was being an example of a loving son, brother, husband, father, Papa and friend. Passing away peacefully surrounded by loving family, he will be dearly missed.
