Scott Thomas "Scotty" Ware

December 10, 1945 ~ June 2, 2021 (age 75)


Scott Thomas “Scotty” Ware, 75, of Paducah, KY, loving husband of Elizabeth Brooks Ware, passed away Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at Norton Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Louisville.

Scotty was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas December 10th, 1945, the son of the late Charles T. and Geraldine Ware. He graduated from the University of Arkansas and held a Master of Business Administration. He dedicated his life to working in the hospital, making his way from grounds keeper to hospital administrator. He retired as Chief Operating Officer from Western Baptist Hospital in 2014 after 21 years of service. He was an avid golfer, and his love of the game came second only to the love of his grandchildren. He was a kind and humble man and a friend to many.

Besides his wife of 54 years, he leaves to cherish his memory, daughter, Brooks Zacheretti, son-in-law Tony Zacheretti, grandchildren, Jack and Audrey, and brother, Kevin Ware. He was preceded in death by his two sisters, Charline Scarborough and Melanie Owen.

A committal service honoring Scotty’s life will be held Saturday, June 5th at Louisville Memorial Gardens East, 11601 Ballardsville Road in Louisville, KY. A memorial service will be held in Paducah, KY at a later date for all of his many cherished friends and co-workers.

The family has kindly suggested memorials to St. Jude’s Children’s Research or First Presbyterian Church of Paducah.
