He was born in Sterling, IL, the son of the late Richard and Patricia (Harrison) Scott. He graduated from Sterling High School. He retired from Frito Lay in 2014 with over 25 years with the company.
Steve enjoyed fishing, yard work, wildlife, sitting on his swing and sports, particularly the Chicago Cubs and Bears. He was an amazing man who loved his family and friends and spending time with them. All that knew him have special memories of his sense of humor and ornery personality.
