From Richland, WA, US | Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Joseph Leo Scott

Einan’s Funeral Home

Joseph Leo Scott, 53, of Richland, Washington went home to be with his Heavenly Father on July 1, 2006

Joe was born June 20, 1953, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He was the son of Leo Perry Scott and Mable Isabelle McCoy Scott. He was adopted by Mable and Leo from a Catholic orphanage in Oklahoma City and later Joe’s mom and dad adopted his brother, John and sister Mary. Joe was Native American, and was thought to be from the Blackfoot tribe according to his adopted mother but was told by an Indian Chief he had the characteristics of the Osage Indian.

Joe and Carmen, whom he adoringly called Dolly, were high school sweethearts and graduated from Woodward High School in Woodward, Oklahoma. Joe and Carmen were married March 3, 1973. He attended Oklahoma State University, and at the age of 19 was the youngest licensed contractor in the state when he owned and operated Scott’s Plumbing and Heating in Woodward, Oklahoma. Joe and Carmen later moved their family to Pinellas County Florida working in Saint Petersburg, Clearwater and Oldsmar while living in Palm Harbor. Joe and his family have made their home in Richland since 1999.

Joe is survived by his wife, Carmen Dolly Hanson Scott, the love of his life, two children whom he loved dearly, daughter Stacy Scott, called Spooney or Sissy by her daddy, son Cory Scott, He nicknamed Bud, both of Palm Harbor, Florida; a dear niece, Brandi Price of Topeka, Kansas; and a loving and giving sister-in-law, Julie Johnson and her husband, Gary, who was as close as a brother to him, of Hazelton, Kansas

Joe was a very kind and loving husband and father, and friend to all that he met. He has a wonderful sense of humor, quick wit, and a contagious smile. This humble and dignified man is loved by all who know him. He enjoyed playing golf, watching a variety of sports, loved cooking and wine tasting and enjoyed being with family and friends. His best friend was Gene Kernan who grew to be like a brother to him and Joe felt loved by the entire Keernan family.

Memorial services will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Friday July 7, 2006, at the Cathedral of Joy 1153 Gage Blvd, Richland, Washington.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to: Hospice at the Chaplaincy, 2198 W. Entiat Avenue, Kennewick, Washington 99336 or No hungry Child The Honduras Children Fund at the Cathedral of Joy Church.

  • Dear Carmen,

    I was sure sorry to hear about Joe. I have lots of really good memories of growing up just down the street from Joe and his family and the times I spent at their home. One of the first things I remembered was all of the rough football games we played on the Horace Mann playground. Joe was always such a super guy. You and your family are in my prayers.

  • One of my best friends in this industry. Although he left our area in 1999, his friendship remained with me. What a pleasure it was working with him and talking about his family with him. He was always asking about my family too. And then to meet Carmen, what can I said except that they were such a beautiful couple. His earthly body may be gone from this place , but his spirit will always have a place in my heart. I will miss my friend.
