My Dad, Benjamin E. Scott passed away late last night after suffering many years of ill health but stayed strong until the end. Now he is at peace.
He had the greatest sense of humor and everyone he met liked him. He became a bit of a legend in Ramona, his home town for the last 25 years. Even though he had lost both legs, he was able to accomplish complex carpentry, roof work and fix just about everything around the house. He was an amazing handyman. The Ramona police ignored the fact that he was unfit to drive, but let him drive his golf cart around town anyway. When he couldn’t drive the golf cart any longer, he got around nicely in his electric wheelchair. He rigged it with lights so he could go to the county fair on the back roads. He would travel for miles on that thing. He was indeed a character.
I will miss him.
I just want to let you know a little about the man, I call my father.
