Raymond Earl Scott was born October 21, 1891 in LeRoy, Illinois to Charles Melburn and Manetta Belle (Wheeler) Scott.
Raymond was the oldest of four boys. Raymond's family moved from Illinois to Nebraska, where he met and married Ola Robinson Evans.
Raymond was a carpenter by trade. He had worked at one time, for the Union Pacific Railroad, and for the Superior Lumber Company in Rock Springs Wyoming.
Ray built the home his family eventually lived in in Rock Springs. A beautiful home with hardwood floors, archways, a built in ironing board, a clothes chute for dropping clothes from the second floor to the basement area where the washing machine was, and many other "features". This home still retains in family ownership.

Raymond took "Sunday rides" with the family, piling the back of his pickup full of grandkids and driving around on back country roads.
He loved to take the family fishing, but was afraid of worms. His grandkids delighted in chasing him with worms. They also delighted in eating lemons in front of him, since this would cause him to pucker much worse than those who were actually eating the lemons.
Raymond passed on December 27, 1968, in a nursing home in Salt Lake City where he had been a resident. His funeral and burial was in Rock Springs, Wyoming.
