Wilfred "Scotty" Smith
April 9, 1925 - March 27, 2018
Wilfred "Scotty" Smith passed away on March 27, 2018; less than two months after he lost Chic, his beloved wife of seventy-three years. Scotty was born on April 9, 1925 in Kearny, New Jersey. He was an innovative entrepreneur, a loving husband, and a caring, generous father.
Scotty and Chic moved to Colorado Springs in 1970 to fulfill their dream of opening a piano lounge, The Scotland Yard, on Colorado Avenue. Long before Karaoke was popular, Scotty was on the keyboard playing favorite songs and leading sing-alongs. He was often an impromptu guest at the Broadmoor Hotel and the Golden Bee. The couple opened two more businesses in the Springs; Queen and Crown Liquor, before retiring to travel.
Scotty leaves to cherish his memory his daughters, Janette, Bev, and Lauren; his son, Doug; and his grandchildren, Carlie, Kira, and Jill.
