Marvin Scott Self, known to his loved ones as Scott, passed away on December 9, 2023, at the age of 75 in Randallstown, MD. He was born on May 27, 1948, in Sendai, Honshu, Japan. Scott was a kind, thoughtful, and loving individual, deeply cherished by his family and friends.
Scott is survived by his beloved wife, Rori Bergere, his sister Melinda Self (Sue Heimann), his son Scott T. Self (Shannon Drury), his daughter Elissa Michalski, his daughter Kristina Morgan (Lynne Jackson), and his grandchildren Ceili Stockton (Nate), Cormac Self, Noah Michalski, Riley Michalski, Devon Michalski, Shay Jackson, and Heath Jackson. He was preceded in death by his father, Scott A. Self Jr. (Elizabeth), and his mother, Maryn W. Sampson (Robert).
Scott attended Pacific Grove High School in Pacific Grove, California and later pursued higher education at the United States Military Academy at West Point, Class of 1970. At West Point, he was active on the tennis and squash teams, in the Glee Club, and Protestant Chapel Choir where he served as President in his final year. He proudly served in the Infantry and as a helicopter pilot in the United States Army from 1970 through 1977, in the U.S. and overseas. After his active-duty service, Scott extended his service to the country in the Iowa National Guard, where he continued to fly.
Following his military service, Scott had a successful career as an engineer within the Aerospace industry. He also shared his passion for knowledge as a math teacher at the Chelsea School in Silver Spring, MD. In his leisure time, Scott enjoyed pursuing various hobbies such as golfing, photography, crossword puzzles, reading, and volunteering with the Job Corps. His greatest golfing accomplishment was a Hole-in-One at Prestwick Country Club in Myrtle Beach on September 9, 2019. Being a grandfather was one of his greatest joys in life.
A ceremony honoring Scott's life will be held at Arlington National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the ASPCA or the Wounded Warrior Project, organizations that held a special place in Scott's heart.
The Donaldson Funeral Home of Clarksville, P. A. is assisting the family with the arrangements. They can be reached at 12540 Clarksville Pike, Clarksville, MD 21029.
Scott's legacy will forever be remembered and cherished by those who were fortunate enough to have known him. May he rest in peace.
