Steven C. "Steve" Scott

September 24, 1955 — December 9, 2023

Steven C. "Steve" Scott, 68, of Waterloo, IL, died December 9, 2023, in St. Louis, MO. He was born September 24, 1955, in Valdosta, GA.

    Whoever said never to trust a man with two first names never met Steve Scott. You didn’t have to know Steve for long to know he was the type of person you could count on, whether you were a stranger, customer, neighbor, friend, or a member of his beloved family. He could talk your ear off, but the silence he’ll leave in his wake will be deafening.

Steve had a sharp, analytical mind that he constantly pushed with new challenges and ideas. Not one to let age or illness slow him down, he lived vivaciously, letting his kindness, joy, values, and ambition guide him until the very end.

Steve was preceded in death by his father, Max Scott, and is survived by his wife, Cathy Scott (née Thomas), originally of Stanberry, MO; daughters Melissa (Dave) Anderson of St. Louis, MO, Kristin (Jarod) Chiasson of Waterloo, IL, and Abby Norwood of Portland, OR; grandchildren Carter, Riley, Thália, Cecilia, Olivier, Julian, Norah, and Lennon; mother, Claudine Sue McDowell of Albany, MO; and sister, Linda (Eddie) Scott of Chula Vista, CA.
