Gordon Lee Scott, a 33 year resident of Gardena, California went to be with the Lord on Monday, February 26, 2006 at the age of 81. He was born in Lewiston, Idaho on May 29, 1925 to father, William Scott, and mother, Louise Scott (maiden name: Click).
He entered the Navy and served as a Pharmacist's Mate during World War II. He served in the Asian Pacific Area and received an Honorable Discharge in 1946. He then went to the State College of Washington and earned his Bachelor's of Science in 1950.
From that point on he pursued a passion for other cultures. He sought to understand the world and people from a global perspective. He worked in a multitude of positions with the State Department to include serving as a Cultural Affairs Officer. He worked in the countries of Iran, Denmark, Paraguay, Dominican Republic, Peru, and Bolivia. In the early 1970's he moved back to the United States where he worked until retirement as the Public Affairs Officer for the Food and Drug Administration.
Life outside of work was focused on being a husband and father. As a father you could find him by a swimming pool watching his kids participate in competitive swimming events. With his wife, he spent time collecting and selling antiques. His personnel interests were fishing, collecting tools, and his beloved pets.
He contributed in the community by serving as a community educator for the Asian Pacific Outreach in Southern California and after retirement for the House of Yaweh.
He is survived by his loving wife, Carmen, his two children, Robert and Andrea, and his grandson, Nikolas.
