Providence – Scott Moran, a beloved Fox Point artist, gardener, and community advocate, died Friday, September 9, 2022, at home. He was forty-five.
Born in Wilmington, Delaware, a son of James Moran of Chesapeake City, Maryland, and the late Joyce (Tatman) Schafer, and stepson of Thomas Schafer and Kathy Moran, Scott was raised in Bay City, Michigan, and lived in Providence and on Block Island, where he met his wife, Casey, of nine years.
Scott’s appreciation for the natural world was made manifest in his Block Island business, Logos Gardens, where he tended ornamental and vegetable gardens and developed strong bonds with longtime clients. He was a brilliant and prolific landscape painter and conceptual artist, who was endlessly inspired by the hillsides of Block Island and the bending streets of Providence. And he was a voracious reader who always had a book in his hand or a recommendation to share. He was active in his community, serving on the boards of the Fox Point Neighborhood Association, the Fox Point Community Garden, and the Vartan Gregorian Elementary School P.T.O., Providence.
He passed on his curious and humanistic nature to his daughter, Willa Moran of Providence, and two sons, Severin Bull-Moran of Connecticut and Jasper Moran of Providence, whom he loved immensely. In every book they read, every piece of art they create, and every plant they tend, Scott’s memory will endure. Besides his children, wife, father, and step-parents, Scott is survived by his sister, Jennifer Foti of New Jersey; his brother, Seth Moran of Maryland; and many more family and friends.
A celebration of his life will be held Tuesday, September 20, 2022, at 10 a.m. in the Redwood Chapel at Swan Point Cemetery, 585 Blackstone Boulevard, Providence. Relatives and friends are invited. Private burial to follow. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory to the Fox Point Community Library ℅ Community Libraries of Providence, P.O.
