Scotty was born in Kansas City, Missouri, on July 6, 1947. He is the son of James Richard and Helen Workover Scott.
Scotty graduated from Northeast High School in 1965. He received an Associate’s Degree from Penn Valley Community College, Kansas City, Missouri, and a Bachelor’s Degree from Rockhurst University, Kansas City, Missouri.
Scotty married the love of his life, Karen Davis Scott, on December 28, 1996, at Grand River Chapel, William Jewel Campus, surrounded by family and friends.
He was a veteran who served in the United States Army, stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas. After his military service, he worked at Commerce Bank for 20 years, culminating in a Vice President role. Scotty owned multiple business, founded Camden Point Feed and Farm Supply, as well as, Scott Construction Services in Cameron and Kearney. He later worked as Vice President and President of many retail banks across the Midwest.
Scotty loved his family, and spent countless days and nights entertaining with Karen at their home. He left a positive impact on anyone who came into his life. Scotty was a devoted husband, a wonderful father, a fun-loving Papa, Poppy, and Great-Poppy. Scotty loved his friends and family dearly. He had a heart of gold, never met a stranger and loved his dear devoted Moose dog. A great joy to him was playing poker at his home every Thursday night with a wonderful group of friends he cared for so much. Scotty will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
