Gordon W. Scott (September 26, 1928 - July 5, 2009)


Gordon W. Scott (age 80) entered into rest on July 5, 2009 in Bellingham, WA. Gordon was born on September 26, 1928 in Bonners Ferry to Warren B. and Emma (Thompson) Scott. He graduated high school in Colville, WA and attended the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID on a music scholarship.

He enlisted once again for the Korean Conflict on November 14, 1956 and was discharged as a Sgt Tech. E5.

Gordon was interested in a variety of activities: he was an avid flyer and flight instructor, self taught organ, guitar and harmonica player. He also enjoyed singing and had a beautiful tenor voice. Gordon was an accomplished pinochle and bridge player and a Director of the Bellingham Duplicate Bridge Club for many years. He was also a semi-pro bowler while in his 20s.
