Scott was born Dec. 23, 1952, in Pocatello, Idaho, to William Keith and Adria Neta Nash. Scott moved to Kearns, Utah, when he was two. He attended South Kearns Elementary, Kearns Junior High, and Kearns High School. He attended trade college for telecommunications. Scott made and kept many friends from attending school in Kearns, working for the phone company, and doing telecommunications at the Tooele Army Depot.
Scott lived most of his life in Kearns and moved to Stockton, Utah, almost 22 years ago where he was still residing at his time of death. Scott married Vicki Reid on June 21, 1986, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Scott played baseball as a boy and coached baseball as an adult. Scott was a quiet guy and loved playing pranks. He would pull pranks on friends and co-workers. He was the last person anyone expected to be the one who pulled the prank, therefore he got away with messing with the grandkids a lot. Scott was a hard worker and a great provider.
He is survived by his wife Vicki; sons Kynon Nash, Midvale, Utah; Nicholas Nash, Tooele, Utah; stepdaughter Misty Richards; grandchildren he was raising Tyson Richards, Mariah Richards, Chloe Richards, and Shantelle Richards; sister Kristine Bennett, Kearns, Utah; Ray and Ryan, his brothers at heart; many friends, coworkers, and his little buddy, his dog Sammy.
He was preceded in death by both parents, brother Keith Thomas Nash, and grandparents.
Thanks to our Stockton family for all the love and support given to us during this difficult time. Thanks to the nurses at Rocky Mountain Hospice for all their help with his peaceful passing.
