Scot T. Chapman, 55, of Lititz, passed away peacefully on June 12, 2018 at Hospice and Community Care.

Born in Bronxville, N.Y., he was the son of Clarence “Rick” Chapman and the late Estelle Marie (Wilson) Chapman.

After graduating high school, Scot entered the United States Marine Corps, where he proudly served for five years and traveled the world from the Aleutian Islands in Alaska to Honduras, where he achieved a top-level security clearance position as a Corporal. His experience in the Marine Corps led him to return to New York and work in the field of telecommunications. It was here that he met his best friend and beloved wife of almost 25 years, Annie.

Anne and Scot had a love story like no other and he was devoted to her and their children, Connor and Katherine, both of whom inherited Scot’s quick wit. Scot was heavily involved with Boy Scout Troop 142 and stayed on as a Troop Father until Connor became an Eagle Scout. He enjoyed being outdoors and especially loved going on weekend hikes with his family and their annual summer trips to the Outer Banks.

He was incredibly proud of his daughter Katherine and her achievements in the arts. He was so happy to hear that she crossed the stage at graduation as a member of Warwick Class of 2018. Prior to the official graduation, the administration came to the house and performed a private ceremony for Scot.

Scot is survived by his loving wife: Anne (Stewart) Chapman; and his dear children: Connor and Katharine Chapman. He is also survived by his brother and best friend: Brian Chapman, and wife Donna; sister: Kathy Porter; nieces: Colby Chapman and Ashley Robinson, wife of Greg, and their daughter, Harper; sister-in-law: Mary Aschel, wife of Peter, and their daughter, Emily; brother-in-law George Stewart, husband of Mary Ellen; and many dear aunts, cousins, and extended family.

Family and friends are invited to a viewing on Thursday, June 14, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz. A mass of Christian burial will be held Friday, June 15, at 11 a.m. at St. James Catholic Church, 505 Woodcrest Ave, Lititz.
