Scott Conrad Benson Jr

09/21/1942 - 05/21/2024
Service Date: 06/08/2024
Service Time: 10:00 AM
Service Location: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 3572 E. Guadalupe Rd, Gilbert, AZ

The families of Scott Conrad Benson Jr. wish to announce that he has returned to his Father in Heaven on May 21st 2024 in Gilbert Arizona. Scott was born on September the 21st 1942 in Salt Lake City Utah to Dr. Scott Benson Sr. and Mary Platt Benson.

Scott was preceded to his heavenly home by his parents Scott Conrad Benson Sr., and Mary Platt Benson, as well as his brothers Beric and Chris. Scott credits much of his formative raising to his Grandparents Ben and Violet Platt who also precede him.  Scott is survived by his beloved bride Marlene, his brother Douglas, and his children in order of birth Scott III, Sean, Diana Waite, and Spencer. At the time of Scott’s passing he had 12 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Anyone that knew Scott knew where his heart was and what things were most important to him. Those things were his family and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Scott’s heart belonged completely and fully to his wife Marlene whom he met in Washington state where he was stationed with the Army National Guard.  Scott’s favorite story to tell (of which he had many) was of his friend “dragging” him to a dance at the local LDS chapel. As Marlene entered the dance Scott pointed across the room and told his friend, “That is my wife.” At the time of Scott’s passing he and Marlene were married for 58 very happy years.

Scott’s services will be held at their LDS chapel located at 3572 E. Guadalupe Rd, Gilbert, AZ at 10 a.m. on Saturday June the 8th. Those that would like to comfort the family and hear Scott’s life story are invited to attend.
