Mark Keith Scott

September 25, 1951 — March 25, 2024

On Monday, March 25, 2024, our amazing husband, father, papa, and friend passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born on September 25, 1951, at the Valley Hospital in Tremonton, Utah, to Wesley Irving Scott and Merle Hansen Scott. He was the oldest of seven children: Pauline, Larene, Charlene, Jolene, Valene, and Ricky.

Mark was raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He grew up in Fielding, Utah, on a farm, learning to work hard with his family, milking cows, and harvesting hay. He enjoyed many wagon rides, compliments of his younger sisters. He loved growing up in Fielding and cherished the friendships he made there for the rest of his life.

Mark was athletic and excelled in many sports growing up. In junior high, he set a record in the mile relay in track. He continued to play sports in high school, where he enjoyed wrestling, football, and rodeo. He graduated from Bear River High School in 1969, where he was a two-year member of the Bruins club. He was also a member of the rodeo club, where he participated in the bull riding event. His rodeo career abruptly ended when he was awarded the hard-luck cowboy award after breaking his nose riding a bull. Unfortunately, the bull won.

Mark married his high school sweetheart and best friend, Shari Ann Christensen, on August 21, 1969, in the Salt Lake City Temple for time and all eternity. Shari was the love of his life. He was thoughtful and always made sure she was taken care of. He was a devoted husband and father. Together, they had five children: Travis, Tyler, Tiffani, Trevor, and Trent. Mark devoted his free time to spending it with his family. They enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, boating, four-wheeling, snowmobiling, skiing, and riding horses. He was the kids' biggest fan. He never missed an opportunity to support their interests and watched countless games and attended more dance recitals than he probably would care to admit. He may have even performed in a daddy daughter dance or two, and supposedly, his “toe touchers” in his wranglers were legendary. He never missed an opportunity to support their interests. Not only was he a fan and a dad, he was a coach and a booster club president. He taught his kids many life lessons, including a strong work ethic, honesty, integrity, faith, loyalty, love, dependability, and the importance of service. He led by example and exemplified each one of these attributes.

Mark was a man of many talents and skills. He had long-lasting energy, willpower, and perseverance. He could solve any problem, build or fix anything, and could always figure out a way to “do it better.” His passion for building led to a life of projects. In his early career, he worked for Jack B. Parsons and spent his nights and weekends owning and operating Culligan Soft Water. He later stepped out of his comfort zone and embarked on a new business venture with his son Travis. They started T&M Manufacturing, a steel fabrication and erection company, in 1996. The time, effort, and commitment he devoted to this successful company were something he remained proud of for the rest of his life. The legacy he built continues to this day. He retired in 2014 and spent the next ten years living life to the fullest by soaking up time with his wife, spending winters in St. George, supporting his kids and grandkids, golfing, and perfecting his beautiful yard. He also loved to hunt, fish, and watch rodeos.

Mark had an unwavering testimony and loved being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served in many capacities throughout his life, but his two favorite callings were serving with the youth and the time he spent serving as an ordinance worker in the Brigham City temple with his wife. Above all, ministering was one of his greatest callings. He loved serving others and devoted his life to it.

Mark was the best hands-on “papa.” His relationship with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren was truly special and unique. He loved them unconditionally and never missed a chance to tell them. He gave them the gift of his time and supported them in all they did. Each year he took them for a birthday dinner at their favorite restaurant. He taught them life’s greatest lessons, and his legacy lives on through them.

Mark had no fear and did everything 100%. He was “all in” on life. Mark was a role model and someone we aspire to be like. He left a lasting imprint on the hearts of those who knew and loved him, especially his family. He will be forever missed. He is our hero, and we look forward to the day we can be together again.

Mark is preceded in death by great-grandparents, grandparents, his mom Merle, and his sister Charlene. Mark is survived by his father, Wesley, loving wife, Shari, their children Travis (Erin) Scott, Tyler (Saige) Scott, Tiffani (Bryant) Stowe, Trevor (Toni) Scott, Trent (Annie) Scott, twenty-one grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
