In Memory

Our much-admired classmate Joseph Scattergood III was born in Middletown, Del., on May 8, 1939, and died on Nov. 2, 2021.

He graduated from The Haverford School in the class of 1957, and while a student at Amherst College he majored in biology, graduating with the class of 1961. Joe was a respected member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, where he had a great many friends. He had the sports seasons thoroughly covered, playing football, squash and baseball. In his later life, he enjoyed playing tennis and rugby (in Philadelphia and Boston) as well as curling and golf. He was, in short, an all-around athlete.

In his professional life, Joe worked as a retail specialist with Atlantic Richfield Co. and then as a stockbroker with Lehman Brothers and A.G. Edwards until he retired in 2005. He lived in Haddonfield and Cherry Hill, N.J.; Berwyn, Pa.; Sudbury, Mass.; and Gilford and Meredith, N.H.

Joe was a member of the Gilford Community Church.

He is survived by wife Jane, daughter Deborah, son Joseph and three grandchildren.
