William Scatchard IIIHotel manager, Navy veteran
William Scatchard III
William Scatchard III, son of William and Elizabeth Scatchard, died Tuesday, Aug. 23 after a yearlong battle with lymphoma.
Mr. Scatchard’s father, William, was a partner in McCloud and Scatchard, an architectural/engineering firm in Lititz which now goes by the name Derck & Edson Associates. His mother, Elizabeth, was born in Lititz.
He was a guy loved by all who met him — outgoing, optimistic and happy.
A graduate of Penn State University in hotel administration, he was a true "Phillies Phanatic" — never in doubt his team was the "very best." In January 2010, his dream to be a Phillies player became a reality when he and his brother, Bob, spent a week at Phillies Fantasy Camp in Clearwater, Fla., training and playing with the pros.
Bill’s hotel career spanned a multitude of years, beginning with four years of service in the U.S. Navy. Following were several years opening and managing Playboy Clubs throughout the U.S. and Philippines. Later Bill joined prestigious Hyatt Hotels Corporation, opening and managed hotels in Chicago, New York, Phoenix and Sarasota, Fla. Bill has written 11 books on hotel management that are now available at the Rosen School of Hotel Management in Orlando, Fla., for course study.
Bill traveled extensively on lecture with Hilton Hotels, Best Western and Holiday Inn Corporation. In 1997, seeing a need in the limited service hotel market, he and his wife, Maggie, established Creative Breakfast Concepts, a company dedicated to assisting hotel owners and managers in providing excellent breakfast foods, beverages and service. The company today is located outside Orlando, Fla., and enjoys the success of Bill’s extensive experience and hard work.
Mr. Scatchard was a loving father to three girls: Traci Eisenhower; Terri, wife of Joe Schofield; and Amy, wife of Ken Palmer; and three grandchildren: Brennan, Piper and Getti. He is also survived by his wife: Maggie; brother: Robert, husband of Janet Scatchard; and niece: Jenny.
Memorial services for William were held on Aug. 31 at the Oaklawn Chapel of Baldwin-Fairchild Funeral Home.
Tributes may be offered at local animal rescues or humane societies.
Baldwin-Fairchild Funeral Homes and Cemeteries, Oaklawn Chapel, Sanford, Fla., were in charge of the arrangements.
