Steven E. Scottt

Friday, March 1, 2012, we lost a truly great man, Steven E. Scott, due to complications from Type 1 diabetes, of which he had suffered from since the age of 8. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at WestWay Christian Church in Scottsbluff with Pastor Marshall Smith officiating. Cremation has taken place in accordance with Steven's wishes. Memorials may be made in care of the family and will be designated at a later date. Steve was a loving husband, son, brother, uncle, and has Aaron put it, the best, most loving dad there ever was.

Steve was born on February 9, 1978, to Randy D. and Connie S. (Olsen) Scott. Steve grew up between Scottsbluff and the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas areas, residing most of his life in Scottsbluff. He graduated from Mitchell High School in 1996. Steve married Katie Mae Walker on October 2, 2009. For the past year, Steve had worked as a network analyst for Cabela's, and for the previous twelve years he had worked in various network positions at Regional West Medical Center.

Steve's legacy is and will continue to be his giving heart and witty nature. Always thinking of others first, he led by example, showing other's God's love through his giving heart and generous nature. Steve was a loving husband to his wife, Katie; his family had commented to him many times, if ever there was a perfect woman for Steve, it was her. He was also a devoted father to his son, Aaron, and was very excited and anxious to be a father again, as he learned on his birthday, that he was going to be a father a second time.

Steve knew how to keep things light, making others smile with his wit, charm, and joking nature. It was difficult, impossible at times, to have a conversation with him, without his numerous attempts to make you smile and laugh. Armed with quick come backs, arsenals of jokes and stories, and an innate ability to be completely off the wall with his actions and words, all in an effort to make others smile; Steve's generous nature was often best remembered in his ability to make others laugh, not taking life too serious. He had a strong belief system, one of which is that life is not measured in what is achieved, but how you are remembered. Steve was sure to leave a lasting impression on all those who were privileged to know him.

Steve shared a close relationship with his family. The term family was a special one to Steve, with his family including a wide array of extended family, such as his in-laws, friends, teammates, and countless others, that to Steve, were all family. He loved to play softball, his team, Los Barachos, were to him, part of the family. Steve loved to coach and work with kids. Even before he, himself, was a father, he spent time volunteering, working with his nephews and nieces. Later, as Aaron got older, Steve spent countless hours working with his son and teammates, friends, etc. coaching various sports. Steve's impact on those fortunate enough to know him is immeasurable, and his generosity indelible to the lives he impacted. Steve was a creator and restorer of relationships, richly touching so many lives in such a short life. If Steve could share a single lesson, it would be to live as he did, putting the thoughts and needs of others in our thoughts and actions, knowing this life is short and no time is guaranteed; so make the most of it by having your legacy live on through the fond memories you create in others.

Survivors include his wife, Katie, of Scottsbluff; his son, Aaron and his unborn child (affectionately referred to as "Little Bean"); father, Randy Scott; mother, Connie Lufkin; brother, Randy Scott; and grandfather, Walter Scott. To list the surviving legacy of Steve would not be possible, due to the impact he had on so many livesÂ…but the list would include step siblings, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, in-laws (both former and current), friends, co-workers, and teammates.

Preceding Steven in death was his paternal grandmother, Betty Scott; maternal grandmother, Marilyn Olsen; step-father, Charles Wengert; uncles, Mike Scott, Mark Singleton and Doug Olsen; and aunt, Linda Olsen.
