Randolph Ross Scott, 96, of Clairton, was born on May 29, 1923 to the late James and Melissa Scott in Rochester, PA. He passed away on April 3, 2020 and was preceded in death by his ex-wife Mary Emma Robert Scott Logan, current wife, Clydie Mae Austin Scott and daughter Juanita Hopkins Edmond.
Randolph graduated from the Clairton School District in 1941. Shortly after, he married his first wife Mary and from this union, four children were born. He joined the United States Army, March 3, 1943 and was honorably discharged October 1, 1943. Randolph met and married Clydie Mae on January 14, 1967, a love story that lasted for forty years. From this union, ten children were raised in love.
Mr. Scott was a man of his word, often saying, “A man’s word is his bond.” He was willing to help anyone in need. He was a man who believed in hard work, again saying, “an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.” Perfecting his craft while working hard to support both of his families was the one thing that Mr. Scott was proud of. His life was built around concrete. He was passionate about cement finishing, some of his hobbies also included home repair, and gardening. He was no stranger to the kitchen (barbecue and homemade pancakes). In his past time, he enjoyed watching cowboy movies, law enforcement tv drama, eating good food, numbers (daily lottery), and talking about president #45.
Randolph is survived by his daughter, Melissa A. (Kevin) McGuire of Braddock, PA; eight sons, Eric J. (Stephanie) Scott of Philadelphia, PA, Michael J. Scott of Clairton, PA, Dandridge J. Scott of Sacramento, PA, Christopher Paul Morton of Kissimmee, FL, Robert Lee Morton of Pittsburgh, PA, Raymond (Desnice) Scott of Hamilton, NJ, Bradley (Kathy) Scott of San Antonio, TX, Randolph (Betti) Scott, Jr. of San Francisco, CA; 25 grandchildren, host of great and great-great-grandchildren, extended family and friends.
