Kennon E Scott

July 19, 1950 - August 6, 2017

Kennon Eugene Scott, 67, a Cape Coral resident since 2002, formerly of Newcomerstown, OH passed away Sunday, August 6, 2017 in Ft. Myers, FL. He was born July 19, 1950 in Coshocton, OH to Vane and Barbara Scott, now deceased.

Ken was an accomplished educator, business owner, realtor, and artist. Ken will be most recently remembered for the pride he took in his screen print and embroidery business Gatorwear, a family owned company that will continue to grow to be a big part of his legacy. When Ken followed his heart to Florida, he knew he was right where he was supposed to be. There he met the love of his life and his family began to grow. He took 2 children in as his own and became a “Papaw” which forever changed his life. Any chance he was able to speak of his grandbabies he did so with great happiness. He had a love for the water, fishing and sports. When he could catch a game, he would be kicked back in his recliner watching his Ohio State Buckeyes with his best dog friend Snickers. On Sundays, you could find him bright and early on the golf course. Ken was very blessed to have a group of friends who have been there for many fun memories and became his biggest support system through his journey. His knowledge was impeccable and he always had a good story to share. Ken could always put a smile on anyone’s face and the best meal in their belly. If it’s “As Seen On Tv” he had it in his home. Thanksgiving was his favorite holiday as he opened his home to anyone, and could feed the entire town. He had a heart of gold and his family and friends meant everything to him. As he always said, “Peace, Love, Save The Whales.”

He is survived by his loving companion Sandra Kennedy Daniels of Cape Coral, FL; two children, David Larson (Michelle) of Warrenton, VA and Laura Castro (Alex) of Cape Coral, FL; three grandchildren, Elianna, Alexa and Colby; one sister, Gayle Opphile (Gary) of Newcomerstown, OH; as well as two nephews, Chad Opphile (Dawn), 3 great nieces, Alicia, Amber and Ashlyn of Newcomerstown, OH and Brad Opphile (Chasity) of Newcomerstown, OH.
