Sad Passing of Bob Scott


It is with extreme regret that we note the death of Bob Scott on November 15th in Memphis TN. at the age of 80. Bob was a native of Kentucky and he earned a baccalaureate degree in Agriculture from the University of Kentucky before service in the U.S. Army.


Bob spent his entire professional career in the egg industry working with DeKalb and then Cargill before acquisition of the laying farm assets by Cal-Maine Foods in 1989.  Bob served Cal-Maine with distinction contributing to the successful growth of the Company, retiring in 2018 as Vice-president of Operations. During the past two years he continued to assist his Cal-Maine colleagues with advice and participated in special projects where his extensive experience was invaluable.


Bob was noted for his unique ability to balance his business obligations and travel while maintaining an enriching family life with service to his community. He is remembered as a guide and mentor to young managers and was always available to assist in solving problems. He was respected by his peers and colleagues and his demeanor and accomplishments contributed to the image of the industry and his company


We extend sincere condolences to his widow Iva and his three children and grandchildren.


As a consummate gentleman epitomizing the best of our industry he will be sadly missed.
