Scott was a 2001 graduate from Knox County R-1 High School and was employed as a correctional officer at Lansing Correctional facility in Kansas and was a member of the elite SORT team.
An avid outdoorsman, Scott enjoyed hunting, fishing and relaxing with his beloved dog, Ruby. He was involved in KF and SF4L knife groups, collecting knives and going to knife collector shows. Scott also expressed himself through his many tattoos. If one looked close enough they would see a tribute to his beloved Grandma Dorothy. Because of his varied interests, Scott had a wide array of friends and made friends easily. Scott had a great gift for telling stories and those who knew him knew of his quick wit. Scott’s infectious humor and overall good nature will be missed as he has been taken from all who knew and loved him far too soon.
