Obituary for Phelon Scott Rammell

May 26, 1959 - July 6, 2017
Bulverde, Texas | Age 58


Phelon Scott Rammell, beloved son, husband, father, and grandfather, was called home to his Father in Heaven on July 6th, 2017.

Scott was born in Logan, Utah on May 26, 1959 to Ora Jay Rammell and LaRene Grange. He is the oldest of seven children: Jayna, Marianne, Ramon, Vauna, JillDene, and Brook. Much of his boyhood years were spent in Fort Collins, Colorado. There, he learned the importance of hard work, and found a love for the outdoors. His father taught him to fish at a very young age. Scott continued fishing, and later took his own sons and grandsons on fishing trips. His sons will often describe fond memories of patiently waiting for the perfect catch and cooking it for the family. Scott participated in sports including downhill skiing, leading him to serve as a ski instructor in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Scott graduated from Poudre High School in Fort Collins in 1977. At the age of nineteen he served a two-year proselyting mission for the LDS Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma teaching people about the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Scott received an associate degree from Ricks College in 1982 where he participated as student body secretary. He graduated from Brigham Young University(BYU) in April of 1984, as valedictorian of the school of Psychology. He graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School and Marriott School of Management in Provo, Utah in 1989.

While attending BYU he met and married the love of his life, Loralynn Recht. They lived primarily in Utah for the first 18 years of their marriage. Here they worked hard to raise a family and create a home centered on family and the gospel of Jesus Christ. While here Scott also served as a bishop in the LDS church for the Summit Park Ward in Park City, Utah. One of the memories that Scott often fondly recalled was the opportunity to serve as a gate judge for the 2002 winter Olympics during the downhill slalom skiing events.

A new job with Tesoro Oil Company took his family to Washington State, and later to San Antonio, Texas. Scott served as vice president, general counsel; director, board of directors (two U.S. subsidiary companies); corporate compliance officer; and managing attorney with Tesoro. Throughout his years in the corporate legal profession, he specialized in antitrust, mergers, acquisitions, corporate governance, and more. He was a member of several professional associations, has been a speaker and presenter for numerous professional presentations, and assisted or led many major legal projects and conflict or dispute resolutions. Scott recently retired from Tesoro Oil Company, and focused on pursuing his passion for teaching at St. Mary's Law School. He was serving as assistant dean for administration at St. Mary's Law School when he passed away, a position he thoroughly enjoyed.

He is known among the community for his extensive legal expertise, teaching experience, leadership, and so much more. Among his family, countless memories of family vacations, serving church and community, and encouraging his children to pursue their dreams are treasured. Scott held a wealth of knowledge and experience that he was willing to share with anyone, especially his family. He took his children all over the United States, and has traveled a significant portion of the world with his wife. One of his main focuses was to provide, and to take care of his wife and family.

Scott has touched many lives, and will be sincerely missed by those with whom he has associated. Everything Scott did was motivated by his dedication to his family and to the Lord Jesus Christ. He is survived by his wife Loralynn Recht, his five children: P. Tyler (Alexandria) Rammell, Brittany (Jerry) Westover, Ryan (Danielle) Rammell, McKenna Rammell, and Austin Rammell as well as his seven grandchildren. He is also survived by his beloved mother LaRene Grange Rammell.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at University Hospital in San Antonio for the care, concern, and valiant effort to treat Scott. We are greatly impressed and feel at peace that everything was done properly. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to the charity of your choice.
