Tribute & Message From The Family

On Friday, July 19, 2019, Scott Lawrence Ranlett, formerly of Hooksett, NH, loving father of five sons, passed away at the age of 60, surrounded by his family. Scott was born February 20, 1959 in Malden, MA to Charlotte (Meehan) and Lloyd Ranlett. Scott is survived by his 5 children, Jared, Trevor, Kyle, Brent, and Gavin, mother of his children Roseann (Colon) Ranlett, mother Charlotte (Meehan) Ranlett, father Lloyd Ranlett, sisters Sharon Ranlett-Gelinas, Suzan Ranlett-Thomas, brother Steven Ranlett, numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, extended family, and dear friends

To capture the true, authentic essence of who Scott was would require one to write a novel, as those who knew him would agree. He was known as a "gentle giant" with quick wits, an infectious smile, a kind and compassionate spirit, and who easily made friends wherever he ventured. He freely shared his passion for life, hobbies, and interests with his sons, family, and friends. Scott was a role model and mentor to his sons' friends, too many to name, you know who you are. Scott's first love were his "5 sons" and his second love was "anything he could ride", including his beloved motorcycles. Recently retired, Scott enjoyed spending most of his time with his sons, making memories that will last a lifetime. His favorite song "Free Bird" will live on in the hearts of those who knew him best and will serve as a reminder of the Free-Spirited life he lived.

A celebration of life will be held on Thursday, July 25, 2019 from 3pm-7pm, at Phaneuf Funeral Home, 243 Hanover St. Manchester, NH, with Pastor, Steve Cushing officiating.

Mercy meal to follow hosted at the: Backyard Brewery, Manchester NH 1211 So. Mammoth Rd, Manchester, NH

Andy and I are saddened to hear of Scottie's passing.
It had been quite a few years but by chance we met him on the Mt Washington cruising the lake with his mom late June. We spent 2 hours talking and catching up.❤ We are thankful that we saw him that day. His love for his family was paramount. God Bless

Roseann - you and your boys continue to be in my prayers. Rely on family and friends to get all of you through this most difficult time. You will cry but remember that laughing is OK and based on some of the stories at the impromptu gathering in Auburn last week, I am sure there is much laughter embedded in years of stories. Sending love and healing!!

We had the pleasure of knowing Scott although for a short time. He loved life, and was always full of laughter and wit for anyone that he encountered. He was a great Dad and a good person to all. He will be missed by many and remembered by all. Rest in peace Scott. To his family and mine, be strong and God bless.

I am so grateful for the memories I have of Scott. First met him when he was a strapping young kid when I was teaching at Salem High School...he was always the joker with a heart as big as he was. In later years we worked together in the auto business and later we saw each other often after I moved to Hooksett. Scott always made sure he brought the boys to my house on Halloween...mostly to see what new hotrod I might have in the garage. Such a fun loving guy who I always looked forward to seeing...5 minute conversations usually lasted about an hour! My thoughts and prayers go out to the family...he was a great guy and I will truly miss his joy of life and pride in family. Rest in peace my friend.
