Scott lived his entire life in beautiful Huntsville, which he considered his spot of heaven. He lived close to his parents and several siblings and loved having his extended family nearby.

Scott served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Germany South Mission.

He obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Botany from Weber State University in 1977 and began his life career with the US Forest Service as a Forest Ranger for the Ogden Ranger District for 36 years. During his career he had the opportunity to oversee public lands at Pineview Reservoir, Snowbasin Ski Resort, and other loved Ogden Valley locations. He was instrumental in the preparations and events at Snowbasin for the 2002 Olympic and Paralympic games. It was his dream job. As much as he enjoyed his career he found even more satisfaction in his role as husband, father to his four boys, and “Opa” to his grandchildren.

A boy at heart, he was always the instigator of games, competitions and play. He designed his yard to be his children and grandchildren’s playground where many memories were made in the sand volleyball court, basketball court, fort and “big” swing. His grandchildren love to go to “Opa’s house”. Scott enjoyed the outdoors, especially skiing and many memorable backpacking trips. He was a do-it- yourselfer and loved fixing and building things. He had a passion for yard work and gardening and found much joy in working side by side with his loving wife Connie. They are project people and always want to help others, especially their children, whether it’s with yard work, building things, painting, remodeling, moving, etc. etc. etc. They recently served an LDS Mission to San Jose, CA where they worked with young single adults in the area. They touched many lives and had a marvelous experience that helped strengthen their marriage and their testimony of eternal families. Scott also served faithfully in many other church callings and found enjoyment in reading about LDS Church History and studying gospel topics.

Resident Parking

Huntsville Town Residents,
Over the past several years there has been a marked increase in the number of people accessing the lake and the beaches inside Town boundaries. These beach goers tend to park their vehicles in our residential neighborhoods. On any given weekend there will be 30 to 40 vehicles or more parked on both sides of the road at each beach access site.

Huntsville Roads

Huntsville roads have been improved thanks to a state grant. Bad spots  along 1st street roadway have been covered with asphalt, in addition guard rails have been upgraded for the safety of drivers. The concrete road to cemetery point was roughly 80 ft long. Narrow areas have been widened by 2ft on each side of this concrete road and have been overlaid with asphalt. On July eighteenth 1st street will receive a chip seal from high way 39 to the cemetery point. Mayor Truett would like to thank Rex Harris and Max Ferre for helping Huntsville obtain the state grant. In addition to the grant the town used B&C road funds, and also used tolls received from toll collections at cemetery point marina.
