Larry Jean Scott was born Aug. 22, 1941, in Portland, Ore., to Jean and Vera Scott. He lived most of his life in Hood River County. He passed away July 16, 2017, in Yakima, Wash.

Taylor of Gresham, Ore., nephew Clinton Prante of North Carolina, niece Charis Prante of Yakima, and great nieces Kerstin Prante of North Carolina and Brooklynn Prante of Yakima.
Larry enjoyed an old pickup truck on a logging road, leaving a cloud of dust behind, fishing on the Columbia River and hunting in the hills of Hood River County. He loved to play his guitar and sing in his younger years. He played basketball in Elma and was very good on his team.
Larry loved life and talking to people. His nephew, Clinton Prante, flew out to be with his Uncle Larry and they shared many memories along with Charis, Brooklynn and Marla Prante.
Larry was grateful to all who helped him over time. A great big thank you to Ryan Siebol for the extra hand getting him home in his time of need.
Many thanks for the nursing homes DaVita, Cottage in the Meadow and Lion’s Club of Naches. Larry fought very hard with diabetes, blindness and dialysis. No funeral services will be held, but a headstone will be laid with his mother in his memory at Parkdale Upper Valley Cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of Valley Hills Funeral Home, Yakima.
