He later worked in tech support for Charter Communications. Scott was currently a rural letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, working from the Bear Creek office in Rochester. Scotty and Laci Dixon were married August 3, 2017.
Scotty loved to play board games, video games, and poker. He especially enjoyed strategy games. Scotty enjoyed spending time with his large circle of friends. He was always willing to help any friend who needed a hand. He was "the fun uncle" who took his nieces and nephews fishing, built Legos, played with tractors, and always gave the loudest, most fun toys as gifts. Scott's pride and joy was his young son, Jason, who he cherished and loved!
