Obituary

Stanley Robert “Stan” Scott
Stan was born in Grand Island, Nebraska to Fred and Mildred Scott. He is predeceased by his parents, his brothers George and Douglas, and sisters Dorothy, Corrine, Helen and Madelyn. Stan is survived by his loving wife Arlene, sons Colte (Liz), Thorne, Shane Scott (Kathie), and daughter Sloane Westerberg (Dennis), as well as grandchildren Casey, Cody, Chloe, Tim, Caitlin and Tyler Scott, Dalton and Shannon Westerberg and Alexandra Wright. Stan attended Walnut Junior High School in Grand Island where he made several lifelong friends. He moved to California as a teenager, and graduated from McClatchy High School and Sacramento City College. Stan joined the U.S. Navy to serve his country in WWII. He served on Guam and was honorably discharged in 1946. Upon his release from the service Stan was hired by the State of California. He was a loyal employee of the CHP, California State Police, and the DMV until he retired. Stan was a superior athlete although he modestly would not say that. He played in the Sacramento Senior Softball League well into his 80’s. In 2001, at age 75, Stan competed with 4000 other athletes in the Huntsman World Senior Games at Saint George, Utah. Stan ran like the wind, setting Huntsman World records in the 50 meter, 100 meter & 200 meter races. Stan flew like a bird, winning gold in the long jump with an incredible and record setting leap of 13’7″. He totaled six gold medals. Stan was devoted to his family and the First Church of the Nazarene in Sacramento. He was a joy with children, playing with them and teaching them games. He was a devoted LA/Saint Louis Ram fan and Brooklyn/LA Dodger fan. He loved shooting hoops with the guys on Thursdays and with his dear friend Bill any day. He loved flouting his Laker jacket at Kings Games. He collected a few things. He will be missed. The family wishes to thank the wonderful and caring staff at Elim Care in Folsom, Mike, Ron, Lillibeth, Rita, Farah and Jennifer for their compassionate efforts. A celebration of Stan’s life will be held Friday, September 25, 2015, at First Church of the Nazarene, 1820 28th Street, Sacramento, CA 95816 at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or the First Church of the Nazarene in Sacramento.
