GMUR, Scott
GMUR, Scott 1949 - 2014 Beloved father and husband, Scott Gmur, was born in Monroe, Wis., to Dorral and Katy Gmur, February 16, 1949. He passed from the screen of life surrounded by his loving family in his Quartz Hill home of 29 years December 18, 2014. He was an amazing teacher in L.A. County Court Schools for more than 30 years. His true lifes work was being the very best family man he could possibly be. He was a staunch supporter and coach of local youth sports. He was dedicated to the best possible education of the children of Westside Union School District and served six years on the Westside Union Board of Trustees Ð a responsibility he took very seriously. He loved taking his family camping often and spent many winter holidays hiking and exploring Death Valley with his boys. He grew up in Torrance, California quite near the Pacific. He loved the beach, swimming in the ocean, hiking in the mountains, encouraging his children in their many activities, and appreciating the many nuances in the desert, especially a good poppy year. He was a life-long learner Ð C-Span 1, 2, and 3 Ð and teacher, unafraid of any challenge. His greatest challenge was his fight against metastatic malignant melanoma, but this time he was overwhelmed by his opponent. Scott is survived by his loving wife, Jacqueline, of 37 years, his sons, Dietrich, Arthur, Edward and Michael; daughters, Clare and Vera; daughters-in-law, Leigh and Heather; son-in-law Elie; grandchildren, Hannah, Molly, and George; father Dorral; sister Elyse; brother Richard, and a loving extended family. Scott's family and friends gathered to celebrate his life in a memorial service held on Monday, Dec. 22, 2014. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, you consider making a charitable contribution to Hoffman Hospice or Grace Resources of Lancaster.
