Scott Romney Clawson, age 93, died September 2, 2010 in Salt Lake City, in the presence of his three children.
Scott will be remembered for his devotion to his family and church; for never uttering a word in anger or saying one bad thing about another human being. His sweet sense of humor is his legacy to all who knew him. But above all his love of Agnes will live for the ages.
Scott was born April 6, 1917 in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Shirley Young Clawson and Gertrude May Romney Clawson. Scott attended local schools, and 4 years at the University of Utah. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the British Isles from 1937-1939.
Scott married Agnes Madsen in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, April 11, 1941. Shortly thereafter he was called to active duty in the Army and his division was one of the first to be shipped to the South Pacific after Pearl Harbor where his outfit participated in the New Guinea campaign.
After the war he returned to KSL Radio in the Sales Department and in 1949 was one of the original founders of KSL Television. He retired after almost 45 years. His career included Production Manager, Program Director and Vice President of Programming.
Beside his professional career he taught and supervised early morning LDS seminary at South High and Bryant Jr. High Schools for 28 years and taught English in a community adult education program.
Scott's LDS Church service included being a guide on Temple Square, a teacher in various organizations and a ward historian. He served in various priesthood quorum presidencies, as ward membership clerk, ward executive secretary, bishop's counselor, stake Sunday School president, and on the Ensign Stake high council.
Scott is survived by his three children, Bradley M. (Linda) Clawson, Cathy Brady and S. Dennis Clawson; 10 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren, including one set of triplets and two sets of twins; and brother, Grant R. (Irma) Clawson.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Agnes; sister, Frances (Lee) Jepperson; and brothers, Douglas R. (Alex) Clawson and Richard R. (Dorothy) Clawson.
