Age: 80 * Middlesex, NJ
Middlesex, NJ – Richard Charles Scott, 80, passed away at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Somerset in Somerville on Friday, May 19, 2023. Born and raised in Bloomfield to the late Robert and Arline (Chown) Scott, Rich has been a resident of Middlesex for over thirty years.
He worked for Philips Lighting for forty-one years and was a life member with the Beechwood Heights Volunteer Fire Company in Middlesex.

Scott, Rich leaves behind his loving wife of forty years, Judith (Kasperan) Scott, his children; Jennifer Scott (Rebecca,) Richard Scott, Jr. (Jaime,) and Kimberly Grant (Paul.) He will be missed dearly by his three grandsons; Ronald and Robert Grant and Aydan Rock as well as his sister Joann Guerriero (Anthony) and by many nieces and nephews.
