Ronald Scott Chase

Ronald Scott Chase, 59, passed away on Sept. 4, 2019. He was born in Cottage Grove, Oregon to Theodore and Lavonne (Kethcart) Chase on Sept. 4, 1960 and was raised by his mom and dad, Donald R. Brown.
Although Scott only attended school through the 10th grade, he worked to receive his GED in 1997 to prove to his children that it could be done. He was a self-employed log truck driver in the timber industry for most of his life.
He married Cathy E. Smith on July 18, 1992 in Redmond, Oregon.
Scott enjoyed riding his motorcycle, and spending time with his children and grandchildren. He made it a priority to attend his grandchildren’s sporting events.
Scott is survived by son Levi Chase; daughters Melissa Wells, Sandra Chase, Rachelle Slonecker and Krista Ritter; his wife Cathy; sisters Debbie, Barbara, Martha, Cheri, Desiree and Debbie; brothers Teddy, Ronnie, Robert and Fred; dad Donald Brown; and eight grandchildren with two more on the way.
Scott was loved by many and impacted many lives; he will be dearly missed.
A private family ceremony will be held at a later date.
Arrangements by Smith Lund Mills Funeral Chapel in Cottage Grove.
