Hi I'm Scott

I was raised a cowboy. Married a wonderful girl. Lived in the city after that. Make my living with Turbine Engines. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married to a wonderful girl. Father of four and grandfather of seven. I started my career as an A&P mechanic on aircraft and helicopters and later got a degree from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Aviation Management. I have worked in the helicopter turbine engine industry in various management positions and in various locations. As a family we have lived in Idaho, Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas, Mexico and Arizona. We have enjoyed experiencing different locations, cultures and experiences. My wife and I are "empty nesters" now and love spending time with our children and grandchildren who live from Ireland, to Utah to near us in Arizona.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the Mormon church and married a wonderful girl of the same faith. We have raised our children to understand what it means to be a Mormon and have encouraged them to test living the principles of the gospel for themselves. My wife and I have found that the greatest happiness for us in our lives is in living what we know to be true and in serving others. We also find great joy in watching our children and grandchildren discover the same thing in their lives. The gospel of Jesus Christ and our membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a sure foundation in my life and gives me knowledge of who I am, why I am here on the earth at this time and a sure knowledge of where I am going after my life here on this earth. That knowledge has always been an anchor for my life and has helped me through all the challanges and difficulties in my life. I can not imagine life without that knowledge and assurance.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve others during my time as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Some of the leadership roles that I have had have allowed me to serve with the youth of the church including three years working with missionaries in northern Mexico. I have also had the opportunity to work with other church leaders in our community in meeting the needs of neighbors who have experienced disasters in their lives such as their home burning to the ground. It was a joy to see other members of the church respond to the call to help this particular family of a different faith by having new clothing, transportation, food and funds to meet their immediate needs within hours of the tragedy. Working with other members of our church in serving others is one of the truly great joys of living my faith.
