Robert C. Scott  

June 26, 1944-March 10, 2024

 

Robert C. Scott, 79, of La Porte, Indiana, passed away Sunday March 10, 2024 at Northwest Health-La Porte.

 

He was born June 26, 1944 in La Porte, Indiana, the son of Charles Scott and Kathleen (Heisler) Scott.

 

Robert spent much of his life in La Porte, working for 35 years at Berkel as a Machinist, then moving to Columbus, Ohio for 15 years to work as a foreman at Eagle Crest, where he retired. He served in the United States Army during the Vietnam Crisis. On October 8, 1977, in La Porte, Robert married the love of his life, Carol Delonis, and together they raised their three daughters.  He took the family camping every year and taught them his favorite things, like fishing and riding motorcycles, boating and water skiing. Robert enjoyed cruising on his golf cart, and had a wonderful vegetable garden, growing a tomato as large as a dinner plate. Robert was a member of the PRCU, the PNA, the American Legion Post 83 in La Porte and the VFW Post 4044 in Columbus. His family and friends were his life, and every year he would throw a big fish fry and cookout and invite everyone. He never met a stranger that didn't become a friend and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

 

He is survived by his wife of over 46 years, Carol, his three daughters, Debbie Whickcar of Valparaiso, IN, Dawn "Sissy" (Brian) Blackman of La Porte, IN, Diane (John) Lambert of Dublin, OH; brother, Larry (Patricia) Scott of La Porte, IN; four grandchildren, Cory (Diane) Whickcar, Addison Lambert, Amelia Lambert, Ainsley Lambert and great-grandchild, Chase Whickcar.

 

Robert was preceded in death by his parents; his mother-in-law, Norma Jean Grinstead; son, Bobby Scott and grandchildren, Christopher Whickcar and Adeline Lambert.
