Born in Coatesville, on May 25, 1945, he was the son of the late William J. and the late Anne (Stone) Scarlett.

He attended George School, Rollins College, Penn State, and Tyler School of Art in Rome, Italy. His love of art led to the founding of The George B. Scarlett Gallery and over the years he nurtured many emerging artists. His love of architecture lead him to a successful career in real estate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Service in Greenville, Del. and Brandywine Fine Properties Sotheby's International Realty in Centerville. He was director emeritus of The Kennett Symphony and an active board member of the Union Hill Cemetery. George was the consummate host. He taught so many to appreciate the finer things in life. He was a true gentleman, with a twinkle in his eye, an infectious laugh, and a generous heart, who always saw the bright side of life.

In addition to his wife Dorothy, George is survived by two sisters, Joan Winebrenner (Parse) and Elsie Anne Gerard; brothers-in-law Andy (Christie) and Steve (Barbara), and close cousins in the Halsted and Jackson families. He was a very special uncle to Anne, Peter, Jonathan, Nathalie, Pierre, David, Christopher, McRae, Lisa and Colby and so many others to whom George was a favorite "uncle".

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a sister Elizabeth.
