Scott was born on Sept 28, 1968 to Larmen Everett and Elizabeth Huff in Albuquerque, NM. He had an active, robust childhood growing up in New Mexico becoming a Marine in 1986 spending time in Puerto Rico.

Scott settled in Tucson, Az with his former wife Laura where they raised three girls. He worked as a heavy equipment operator and truly enjoyed moving dirt.

Scott moved to Missouri in 2010 and eventually married Melissa helping to raise two more children. He became a certified crane operator and found a new love with the “big red ladies”. He honestly loved his job; he was willing to share his knowledge with anyone willing to learn, or just be there to give a young laborer boots or gloves, because he knew what it was like to do without. His greatest pride in life, though, was his kids and grandkids.

Scott was an independent thinker, who never shied away from anything, and till the end did things his own way. He will be remembered as a teacher, a prankster, and as someone who would do just about anything for those he loved.

Scott is preceded in death by both of his parents, his sisters Tammy and Anna, and his brother Randy.

Scott is survived by his wife Melissa; children Keesha, Katrina(Joe), Kayla, Dustin(Yessika), and Randilee; and his grandchildren Annabell, Fisher, Raya, Ryan, and Maureen. He is also survived by his siblings Ira(Carla), Athena(John), Evette, and nephews and nieces he loved dearly.
