John Brian Scollard, recently passed away on November 8 at the age of 85, following a short illness.
John was born in Oakland on May 8, 1935 but lived here in Watsonville most of his life. His family owned the former Mello house on White Rd.
He was preceded in death by the love of his life, Carol Iris and he leaves behind his two stepdaughters, Narita Taylor, Jynel Sawyer and his granddaughter. John was an Engineer and Electrician for many years at our local canneries. He loved woodworking. We keep finding things he invented to help make things easier for him. He also enjoyed creating robotic things. Photography was another passion. Mostly though, he loved his wife and daughters.
He was brilliantly clever. John is dearly missed.
