Obituary: Ronald Scott, 73, of Ludington

Ronald Hugh Scott, 73, of Ludington, passed away on Saturday, December 24, 2022.

Ron was born on January 11, 1949, in Grand Haven. He was the son of the late Hugh Scott and Lauretta Jackson-Patterson. In December of 1968, Ron enlisted in the United States Army where he served as an automotive mechanic, stationed in Okinawa, Japan. In 1971, he was honorably discharged. On January 20, 1984, Ron married Barbara (Thomas) Scott. Together, they shared over 38 years together. 

Ron had a sense of humor that all could enjoy. He was quick whited and loved making others laugh. He would find a friend anywhere he went, making small talk with every person he’d run into. No one was a stranger in Ron’s eyes. Each Friday Ron would make his way to Brenda’s, meeting with his group of friends. He loved being able to get out and socialize. Ron was also a great cook. When he first met Barbara, the only thing she knew how to do was burn water! The first thing he taught her how to cook was an easy roast, something he knew Barbara simply couldn’t mess up. Ron loved being able to teach Barbara everything he knew about this passion. He also loved his Frenchie, Bella! Being in his shop, tinkering around, was something Ron did often. He was a great woodworker, and proudly showed off his craft. When Ron wasn’t in his shop, he enjoyed being outdoors, fishing off his pontoon boat, or gardening. Above all else, Ron loved his family. He loved being able to spoil his grandson, CJ. 

Ron is survived by his wife, Barbara; son, Jason (Amy) Scott; daughter, Tabitha Scott; grandson, CJ Golnick; brothers, George (Vernita) Scott, Terry Scott, Fred Jackson; and many nieces and nephews.

Ron was preceded in death by his father, Hugh Scott; mother, Lauretta Jackson; and brother, Jimmy Jackson. 

His funeral service will be held on Thursday, December 29, 22 at 1 p.m. at Oak Grove Funeral Home of Ludington with a luncheon to follow. Visitation begins at noon at the funeral home. 

Memorial contributions may be made out to the Scott family.
