Arthur Scott Pilkenton, 72, of Brownsville, Oregon passed away Wednesday, May 19, 2021. He was born in Artesia, California, son of Arthur and Jacqueline Pilkenton.
Scott joined the United States Marine Corps in July 1967. He served in Vietnam and received an Honorable Discharge as Lance Corporal in 1969.
He was known for his quick wit, infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate heart with a spirit of giving to others!
He lived in Brownsville for 30 years. Scott worked as a heavy equipment operator for 33 years before he retired in 2006.
Scott was a “Fine Art” photographer who had a passion for taking photography, especially the breathtaking Grand Canyon. He always gave credit to God for the beautiful work Scott had done with his photography, it showed in his work. He also loved his gardening, raising flowers for his birds and bees. Scott had a knack for making salsa and his wonderful enchiladas, which his family enjoyed! He had a love for his fast cars, his Harley, and LIFE itself to the fullest with ZEST!!!
I can only imagine when I meet you at the Heaven’s door you will be standing there to greet me with a bouquet of flowers and Samantha, our golden retriever by your side. We will always have our Disneyland and our Arizona! You are my “Sunshine”!
Scott is survived by his devoted and loving wife, Anita; sons, Craig and Todd; brothers and sisters, Marie and Jim Blade, Connie and Bruce Watson, Michelle and Dan Rossetto, and Joe and Lynn Sander; as well as several nieces and nephews.
There will be a private Honor Guard Service. In lieu of flowers, please forward donations to the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling arrangements.
