Obituary of Floyd McKay Scott Jr.
Floyd McKay Scott, Jr. (Scotty) was born in Oroville CA on October 5, 1935. He was the fourth child of six to Floyd McKay Scott, Sr., and Sally Brown Scott. He grew up along with his siblings in Oroville.
Scotty met his wife Bobbie Loucks in San Francisco where he was stationed at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard during his enlistment in the U.S. Navy. Bobbie’s father was a career Navy Officer and Scotty’s Commanding Officer. Scotty and Bobbie's first date was a double date with her parents at an Officer Christmas Party in l957. They married at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard Chapel on June 21, 1958, and celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in 2023.
Scotty was employed by Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) in San Francisco after leaving the Navy and soon transferred back to Oroville with PG&E. Scotty and Bobbie had their first child while living in San Francisco, Mark McKay Scott, in April 1959 and moved to Oroville in May of that same year. Their Daughter, Teri Lynn Scott (Glassmyer) was born in Oroville in 1961.
Scotty loved fishing, hunting, his many dogs, and was a sports fan all his life. Fishing was what he loved most of all. He took trips to Sausalito fishing on a charter boat, “Hog Heaven'' for 20 + years, nearly always coming home with a limit of salmon, sometimes halibut or steelhead. His favorite place to trout fish was in the Feather River Canyon and sorry he still cannot tell you exactly where. Nothing gave him more joy than taking his kids, grandkids, and really all kids along with him on his trips and love to teach them how to fish and see the looks on their faces whenever they were successful.
Scotty attended Oroville and Thermalito schools. Graduating Oroville Union High School in the class of 1954 where he was active in Sports and Block O.
He was an umpire for Little League and high school baseball, softball, and a football official. He was inducted into the “California Interscholastic Federation” (N.S.C.I.F.) after his retirement.
His other hobbies and activities included: travel in and out of the U.S.; dancing as he and Bobbie took dance lessons for many years and traveled around the area dancing the nights away with country waltzes being his favorite; listening to country music; and sports – he loved his SF Giants and the SF 49ers and would be so happy to know they went to another Superbowl this year.
Scotty is survived by his wife of 65 years Bobbie Scott, Son Mark McKay Scott and his wife Brenda, their children Taylor McKay and his wife Caley Follmer, and Lauren Grace. His Daughter Teri Lynn Scott (Glassmyer) and her children, Katrina Lyn, Kasey Jo, and Karter McKay. Also, by his brother James R. Scott, and sisters, Sandra Lee Hansen and Neva Aleen Bristow plus many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his sister Lois Scott Johnson and brother George W. Scott and his parents.
He enjoyed telling stories to anyone that would listen and hearing theirs, especially with his grandchildren, family, and of course his hunting and fishing buddies. He loved giving to others more than receiving and would give you the shirt off his back (gray of course) if you needed it.
