Contact and Directions
Hazelton, Robert Millard Scott was born near Carnegie, Oklahoma, August 6, 1932, to parents Bryan and Mayme Scott. He departed this life, January 6, at Parke View Rehabilitation Center, in Burley, secure in the love of family and friends. He died following a two year battle with melanoma and brain cancer.
Bob graduated from Carnegie High School in 1950, and attended Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State) for three years until he was drafted in to the U. S. Army in 1953. Before his service time, he married Jeanne Gee, in Yale, Oklahoma, August 2, 1953. Their marriage lasted over 64 years. In the army, Bob was stationed in Pirmasens, Germany, where Jeanne joined him for nine months. Following his army stint, Bob returned to Oklahoma A&M to finish his degree in animal science. He was a member of Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity.
Just before graduation, he entered the veterans' homestead drawing in Rupert, Idaho, and was awarded a 99 acre farm on Unit A, between Burley and Hazelton, now known as the Kasota area. He then purchased 72 acres of the Dave Anderst farm. He and Jeanne worked hard to make their acreage into the beautiful farm that it is today. Bob was very proud of his Idaho farm.
Bob loved competition! Starting in high school, he showed championship hogs all over the mid and south west. He told many tales of his experiences in the big cities of Chicago and Dallas. At Oklahoma A&M, he was a member of the meats judging team, earning high honors in Ft. Worth and Chicago. When his children were eligible for 4-H and FFA, he helped them start a steer showing program, which led to many blue ribbons at major shows including Portland, Ogden and at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. After the kids' graduation, he turned his love of
competition to race horses, and he and Jeanne spent countless hours racing their horses all over the northwest.
His favorite things can be described as the 4 F's-family, friends, football and fried chicken. He was a 60 year member of the Rupert United Methodist Church.
He is survived by his wife, Jeanne, daughter, Deanne (Brian) Evanoff, Eugene, OR., son, Douglas (Brenda Coates), Idaho Falls, and granddaughter, Lisa Evanoff, Corvallis, OR. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Louise, sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Carol and Bob Farmer.
Memorial services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Friday, January 12, 2018 at Morrison Funeral Home at 188 South Highway 24 in Rupert. Arrangements are under the direction of Morrison Funeral Home.
