William Gordon Scott

William Gordon Scott - Pasadena (1964-68)
February 23, 1943 - November 11, 2023
His wife Sara (Anderson) passed away in 2017.
From his daughter Jennifer Scott Olson

Dad was born in Pasadena, CA and was the youngest of 3 children. He enjoyed going to the movies to watch Hopalong Cassidy and other westerns as a kid.

Dad enjoyed playing tennis and dancing. He enjoyed dancing with his wife and daughters. He was a gymnast at Eagle Rock High School and broke his leg on a dismount. He had previously broken his leg when he was a toddler when a birdbath fell on him.

Dad attended Ambassador College, Pasadena, CA from 1964-1968. While he was a full time student, he also worked full time as a draftsman there on campus. He met his wife, Sara Anderson (Verona,NJ) in college and they later married in 1968.

Dad enjoyed his job as an architect for the Worldwide Church of God. He would say that he got into every nook and cranny of the work of God and he enjoyed it. His work allowed him the opportunity to work with Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. He met Queen Sirikit of Thailand once on the Ambassador College campus in Pasadena, CA.

He was a romantic at heart and loved happy endings!

Bill Scott and I worked together in the AC Architecture/Engineering department designing campus building and continued collaborating when I moved to Madison, WI in 1974. Bill and I both enjoyed playing tennis and would get out most noon hours and have at it! We were so well matched that the one with the strongest will to win would be the victor! We lived near each other in Altedena for a number of years. I remember once when we climbed the steep slope to Mt. Wilson and then ran down the trail at an exhilarating pace. Bill was best man at my wedding to Anita Judy. Bill and I kept in touch over the years. The last time we got together was about 10 years ago, when my wife Debbie and I were headed overseas and stayed over an extra day, and toured the Getty Museum with Bill and Sarah. Despite battling stage 4 prostate cancer for a number of years, Bill remained positive. I will miss him.
