Robert Curtis Scott, Sr., age 76 of Warren, died Monday, September 17, 2018 at Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital in Warren, Michigan. He was born August 12, 1942 in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, son of the late Robert Franklin and the late Doris Louise (nee: Garrette) Scott.

Robert was just 10 years old when he joined his parents as they pulled up stakes in Tennessee and headed north to the developing community of Warren, Michigan. The year was 1952, and opportunities for his Dad were near boundless as the automotive industry was exploding at that time. So as Robert's education picked up where it left off in his elementary years, just a few years later would find him transitioning to Warren's Lincoln High School where he proudly received his high school diploma in 1962.

But the year 1962 stood out for another important reason in Robert's life. You see,…prior to graduation, there were a number of wonderful experiences he encountered,…but perhaps none as special as meeting the woman who would sweep him off his feet, Miss Anna Parada. The two fell in love and it wasn't long after graduation that they decided to get married, and so they did in 1962 which began their journey together as husband & wife. This was also the beginning of their dream of starting a family which would ultimately include three handsome boys. First came Robert in 1963, followed by his brother Steven in 1965, and bringing up the rear was their little brother Derick in 1972.

Robert was a Tool & Die Maker by trade, a path of employment he was proud to pursue considering he was following in his Dad's footsteps. The mold had been cast, and Robert had learned a great deal from watching his father,…so he chose this admirable career which afforded he and his family many wonderful blessings. While extending the utmost in dedication and loyal service on the job, Robert was honored to have received his promotion to management through the position of Supervisor within the department. It is from there he would ultimately retire following a long and distinguished career.

As for time away from the job, Robert certainly had some favorite pastimes that helped balance out that work & play thing. One of these was enjoyed through the All-American sport of bowling. Whether during league play or simply with a bunch of friends looking for a fun time, Robert loved the competition and camaraderie. He also loved to fish and could while away the hours enjoying the peacefulness and serenity,…right up to that familiar tug on the line when things got interesting. Again, a sport he could muster all by himself, but one which was made even more special when shared with a fellow angler,…especially his cherished children and grandchildren. There's nothin' like goin' fishin' with Grandpa!

Yet for as much as he enjoyed a couple of the quieter sports, there was a bit of a tiger in Robert's tank that came alive through the sport of racing high-performance cars. A sport shared with both his brother's-in-law and various friends, racing was definitely an adrenaline-pumping source of entertainment that always got him fired up. To this day, Robert's original machine still sits in the yard, his coveted '68 Dodge Coronet R/T.

In his later years, he and Anna were blessed to enjoy their houses on the lake,…first at Bald Eagle Lake in Ortonville, then up at Sage Lake in Ogemaw County. Both offered the perfect getaway for family and friends,…especially the memories made with his precious grandchildren, Jesse, Lexi, Matt, Elise and Thelia. From the many rides on the family's pontoon boat, to their fishing expeditions, the various fireworks shows enjoyed,…and, of course, the infamous campfires "that were always going to burn the damn house down,"…Robert was so much a part of the joy and memories made for all as they gathered amidst the lake house to share in its pleasures and revelry.

In Robert's last few years, some of his most special moments came when he would receive one of those familiar "Goody Bags" from his kids and grandkids,…always filled with a huge amount of candy and other sweet treats, and most especially the homemade greeting cards on birthdays and father's day. Each box received brought a smile to his face from ear-to-ear, but simply spending time with the kids managed to lift his spirits beyond expression,…and he was forever grateful.

A moment his family will fondly reflect on this past August 12th, Robert's 76th birthday, as they joined him on his final ride aboard his son Bobby's pontoon boat on beautiful Lake St. Clair. Just imagine the smile that brimmed across Robert's face as he sat confidently in that Captain's Chair, navigating the waterways, at the helm once again of the boat. It was truly a wonderful birthday memory that will live on in everybody's heart.

A loving husband, father and grandfather, Robert legacy is one of love, laughter, and living life to the fullest. He will be missed immensely.

Robert was the beloved husband of Anna. Loving father of Robert Jr. "Bobby" (Lynn) Scott, Derick (Tiffany) Scott, and the late Steven Scott. Caring grandfather of Jessica, Alexis, Matthew, Elise, and Thelia. Father in law of Quinlan Scott, and his fur baby companion, Kai. He was also survived by many loving family members and friends.

Visitation for Mr. Scott will be held on Wednesday, September 19th from 2-9 pm at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 ½ Mile Road) in Warren.

His Funeral Services will take place on Thursday, 10:30 am at the funeral home. Burial will follow at White Chapel Cemetery in Troy, Michigan.
