He was baptized and confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church. Scott attended Lincoln Elementary and graduated from Little Falls Community High School. In high school, he participated in hockey, football, and baseball. Scott scored the first goal and the first hat trick for the Little Falls Flyer Hockey team, and was also nominated Athlete-of-the-Year and homecoming king during his senior year. He remained close friends with many of his classmates throughout his life. After graduation, Scott went on to play hockey for the University of Minnesota in Crookston, football at St. Cloud State University, and baseball with Flensburg Falcons for several seasons. He currently was a member of the Premier Real Estate team in St. Cloud, MN. Scott enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, and the solitude of the outdoors. He spent many of his summer weekends traveling to music festivals throughout Minnesota in his motorhome.
