Eastern Sierra News for June 16, 2024





Jeffrey was born December 8, 1950 in Richmond, Ca and died very unexpectedly on March 12 at his home here in Bishop. Jeffrey lived his entire life in California, primarily in San Diego, Mammoth Lakes and Bishop. Jeffrey met the love of his life, Mollie, in San Diego in early 1974. They married later that same year. They made their home in San Diego until 1990 where Jeffrey worked as an electrical contractor.

Then Jeffrey and Mollie decided that they wanted to see more of the world so they packed up an RV, and hit the road for the next eight years. What fun and adventures they experienced, included a life-long dream of hiking the entire John Muir Trail.

By 1998 the Scotts were thinking of settling down once again just at the time Mollie's parents were hoping to leave the hustle and bustle of southern California. The four of them decided to merge households and live together in Bishop, one of their favorite towns. Both Jeffrey and Mollie took care of her parents until they passed away in 2003 and 2006 respectively .

In the past 11 years Jeffrey had time to indulge in his love of outdoor sports; skiing, hiking, backpacking, golfing and more. And for the first time in many years he had the opportunity to express his love for the Eastern Sierras in his exceptional watercolors.

Jeffrey was admired by all his construction buddies, fellow skiers on the mountain, the folks at Bishop Country Club, and his friends in the art world. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him.

Above and beyond his numerous interests and talents, Jeffrey's priority always remained his loving wife, Mollie.

He is survived by his wife, Mollie, his mother, Helen, six brothers and sisters, numerous brothers and sisters in law and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday March 21 at 1:00 PM at the Scott's house at 660 Sundown Circle, in Bishop.

In lieu of flowers donations may by made to either ICARE or Inyo Council for the Arts.
