Scott was born on June 28, 1956 in the Franklin County Hospital and was raised in Newton, UT, where he grew up farming and moving pipe. Scott graduated from Sky View High and shortly after married Lonetta Loveday in 1975. Scott and Lonetta had five children together (Jason, Amy, Brooks, Landon and Taiya). Scott’s children were the love of his life. During this time, he enjoyed playing competitive softball and church basketball with his friends and family.
Scott and Lonetta later divorced, and he married Darlene Lopez-Montana in 1992. Scott and Darlene spent many wonderful years together camping, fishing, and boating until Darlene passed away in 2016.
Scott later married Sarah Kim Lenhart in 2017 and shortly after was diagnosed with Leukemia. Though their time was short, Scott was grateful for Kim’s love and support for him.
Scott was an avid collector of sports cards and coins, and enjoyed college football, especially University of Utah Football. He loved scouting and had just rekindled his enjoyment of collecting Boy Scout patches. Scott was caring and humble, and never muttered a negative word, even through his many health challenges. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Scott is survived by his wife Sarah Kim Benson; his brothers Todd (Tonya) Benson, and Ryan (Wendy) Benson; his children, Jason (Jessica) Benson, Amy (Cole) Smith, Brooks (Laura) Benson, Landon (Cassie) Benson, and Taiya (Cam) Brown; his step-children Brandee (Tracy) Spackman, Isaac (Karen) Lopez-Montana, and AJ Lopez-Montana; and 26 grandchildren.
