William Gordon Scott, a founding member of St. John Fisher Church, died Oct. 24. He was 94.

Mr. Scott was born Nov. 9, 1918, in New York City to William and Mary Scott. He attended St. Ann’s Academy in Manhattan and graduated from Rutgers University. In 1941, he entered the U.S. Marine Corps and served during World War II. He married Marion Liken in Washington, D.C., in 1942. In 1947, he began his career in the lumber industry, joining A.C. Dutton Lumber of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and moved his family to Portland in 1957 to open a West Coast office for the company. He retired from Dutton in 1980, and formed Scott Lumber Company a year later.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Margaret Magnus; daughter, Honora Scott; and a great-granddaughter. He is survived by his wife, Marion; sons, Gordon (Paula), Michael and John (Colleen); daughter, Marianne Gillespie (Kerry); nieces; eight grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.

A private service was held. Memorial donations can be made to St. John Fisher Church.
