Scott Hatch Pella

February 19, 1950 — March 12, 2024

Scott Hatch Pella, 74, passed away on March 12, 2024, in Garland, Utah.

Scott was born February 19, 1950, in Brigham City, Utah to Robert C Pella and Barbara L Hatch. He was the fourth child with two older brothers and an older sister. He attended elementary school in Brigham City until his family moved to Logan, where he attended Logan High and graduated in 1968. He attended Utah State University until he enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1971. While serving in the Air Force he lived in Texas, California, Guam, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah. He honorably served during the Vietnam era from 1971 to 1979.

Little did he know that while he was working at Brigham Apparel in 1966, he would meet his future wife, Karla Gardner. After Air Force basic training in San Antonio, Texas, he flew home to Brigham City and in April of 1971 asked Karla to marry him. They were married on October 15, 1971, in the Logan, Utah Temple. While stationed at Anderson Air Force Base in Agana Guam, Tyler was born. Trica was born in Aurora, Colorado while he was serving at Lowry Air Force Base. And Traci was born in Tremonton, Utah, after Scott got discharged from the Air Force.

Scott was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served faithfully in many callings. Among his favorites were music director and serving in the scouts.

In 2002, Scott embarked on a new journey of service as a volunteer for the Winter Olympics, contributing his time and energy to support the spirit of unity and competition on the world stage. 

Together with his beloved wife, Karla, Scott found creative expression and shared laughter on the local charity theatre stage, where their performances brought joy and inspiration to audiences near and far. 

Scott loved to travel and spend time with his family and friends. He had a competitive side and would never turn down a “friendly” game of cards or Scooch Your Booch. He can proudly say he went out as a winner. 

Above all else, Scott leaves behind a legacy of love, compassion, and unwavering faith-a legacy that will continue to shine brightly in the hearts of all who were touched by his kindness.

Though he may no longer walk beside us, his memory will live on in the hearts of those who were privileged to know him. Rest in peace dad, your light will continue to guide and inspire us all. Give mom a big hug for us!

Surviving are his children, Tyler (Karyn) Pella Abbotsford, BC Canada; Trica (Shane) Loveland, Elwood, UT; Traci (Jeremy) Grover, Sugarland, TX; 13 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren; brother Chris (Rita) Pella, Orem, Utah; half-brother Shawn Pella, TX; brother-in-law Gerry Herman, Brigham City, UT; stepsister Cathy Coates (Max), Providence, Utah.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Karla Gardner Pella, his parents Robert C Pella and Barbara H Earl, his sister, Barbara Gene Pella Herman, and brother Bruce H Pella.
