It is often difficult to sum up the whole of a person's life in a few short words. It is impossible to do so for Scott. He lived life to the absolute fullest, and did so fearlessly. He tirelessly loved and supported his family each and every day. Because he was the big softy of the house, he also fed the pets too many treats, but that was because he cared for them so much. He gave of himself freely to those he loved and we will never be the same without him.
Scott served in the United States Marine Corps from 1992 to 1998 and achieved the rank of Sergeant. He served in Somalia, Southwest Asia, Jordan, and Kuwait. He was also a proud recipient of the Navy Achievement Medal. He possessed a lifelong thirst for knowledge which meant he was typically reading a book, listening to a podcast, and an audiobook at the same time. He held two college degrees, a bachelor's in History and a certificate in Diesel Mechanics. His interests included movies, foreign languages, gardening, art, travel, writing, and music. Some of his favorite activities were having coffee on the deck in the mornings, rubbing his wife's feet, giving dog haircuts, and co-founding the E & S Wings of Fire Bookclub. His humor, big heart, and infectious smile will never be forgotten. He will forever be missed by his family and friends. Above all, he was a loving husband and father whose absence will be felt every day.
Celebration of Life services will be held on Saturday, July 16, 2022, beginning at 5:00 pm at the Hurst Community Building, located at 104 Bush Avenue in Hurst, Illinois. Dinner will be served including mostaccioli, salad, garlic bread, dessert, tea, and lemonade. Family and friends are encouraged to attend this time of fellowship and remembrance. Maxton-Rosado Funeral Home in Du Quoin is assisting the family with final arrangements.
