Guy Conrad Scholl was born June 19, 1934 and passed away September 15, 2013 surrounded by loved ones. He was the oldest of eight children born to Harold Verle and Pat Scholl.

He graduated from Wichita Falls High School in 1952.

Served in the Marine Corps for three years and was stationed in Japan during his tenure with the service.

He started his career in the oil business from the ground up, and spent much of his life involved as a geologist but could easily do most anything when needed.

Guy married his college sweetheart Yvonne Clearman in 1976. They spent every day since then enjoying each other's company, and nothing made him happier than making her laugh. They would spend hours on hours discussing their children and grandchildren, whom he loved very much.

He was known as "Pop" to ten grandchildren and many others who he took in. He was a constant fan at any of their sporting events, sometime a little more spirited than others. He was never too busy to teach someone to drive, fish or hunt, or even the occasion foray into animal husbandry.

He had such a presence about him, and was quite the practical joker. His sense of humor was infectious and he took great pride in his story-telling abilities.

He had many different hobbies and endeavors that he was passionate about, but by far, his favorite thing was his family. He was happiest when the house was full of people.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Kay Stanberry, and brothers Mike, Mack, and Jack Scholl.

He is survived by his wife, Yvonne, children- Kevin Scholl and wife Traci, Shawn Scholl, Barry Knight and wife Karen, and Molly Marchman. Ten grandchildren Lindsey, Claire, Lauren, Sam, Libby, Grayson, Anni, Ethan, Madelyn, and Charlie. One great-grandchild, Hatley Northington and two more expected by the end of the year. He is also survived by sisters, Judy Malone and her husband Phillip, Sandy Armstrong, and brother H.V. Scholl, and a whole host of nieces and nephews.

A memorial service was held 2:00 PM Wednesday, September 18, 2013 at First United Methodist Church Henrietta with Dr. Rusty Hedges officiating. Arrangements are under the direction of Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Hospice of Wichita Falls.
