Sept. 13, 1944 – Dec. 21, 2020
Allan Forrest Scott passed away peacefully on Dec. 21 surrounded by his family. He was born Sept. 13, 1944 in Washington to Doreen M. Hanlin (deceased) and Forrest Scott (deceased). Allan was raised in the Kings County area by his mother and stepfather Clifford R. Welborn. He attended schools in Ridgefield, Washington and attended Bolsa Grande High School.
After graduating from high school he joined the U.S. Air Force serving as a medic. Upon his honorable discharge, he continued working in the medical field at Hoag and Glendale hospitals. Allan’s passion of helping others followed him throughout his life. Aside from his daughters, one of his proudest achievements was graduating from Glendale College.
Allan moved to La Crescenta where he started his family. It was at this time he began working for the City of Glendale, retiring as a manager after over 35 years. After retirement, Allan moved to Carlsbad to be closer to his daughters Tammy and René. He became an active member of American Legion Post 127 where he eventually served as post commander. He was very proud to be part of this organization for over 25 years.
Allan’s passions included backyard basketball games, dirt bike riding, playing tennis with his brothers, swimming and boogie boarding, collecting rocks along the beach, movies, reading and, most of all, listening to his classic rock albums.
Those who knew him best were well aware of his sense of humor, contagious laugh, blue eyes and welcoming smile. Of all the people he touched, none was greater than his daughters Tamara and René … known as “his girls.” Others who meant a great deal to Allan were his grandson Grayden Baker; sons-in-law Matt Baker and Bill Tuck; brothers Ron Bowman (Shelley), Tim Bowman, Mark Bowman, Bob Bowman (deceased); and sister Teresa Sweet (John). He will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a loving father, Dodgers fan, “Scotty,” proud patriot and U.S. Air Force veteran.
