Scott also enjoyed the outdoors and hiking with his Springer Spaniel “Molly” and had established his own painting business in Greeley. Scott loved to serve others and was always available for his friends in need. He developed this trait as he earned his Eagle Scout award from the Boy Scouts and continued while serving a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Brisbane Australia. Scott was always making sure to keep in touch with all his friends, old and new. He had a love for life that blessed him with many friends.

Lastly, his beloved cat Munchkin, who was adopted out to another family.
