Information on services will published at a later date when arrangements can be made. Per Randy’s final wishes, cremation took place January 6, 2021 and his ashes will be spread at the Singleton Ranch following the Celebration of Life.
Randy was born in Rock Spring, Wyoming to Walter & Betty Scott on May 31, 1953. He attended school first at Scottsbluff and later graduated from Morrill High School. Randy married Tammy on July 18, 2009 in Gering, NE. He worked in the auto body repair industry for many years, the last forty-five years prior to retirement in his own business, Quality Auto Body. Pop, as Randy was affectionately known to all, enjoyed airbrushing, hunting, fishing, coaching and watching baseball, football, and woodworking. He was widely known for his ability to entertain and enjoyed the company of his family and close friendships routinely; with none more important than the 4th of July extravaganza at “The Shop”. Pop’s prowess for humor was legendary; you gave him a subject and he was guaranteed to have multiple jokes, stories, and anecdotes that would literally leave your jaw and sides sore from laughing. His capacity for humor was only surpassed by his love for his family and friends – blessed were those that were fortunate enough to truly know Pop.
Randy is preceded in death by his son Steven Scott, father Walter Scott, mother Betty Scott, and brother Michael Scott.
Randy is survived by, his wife, Tammy Scott, his Children Randy and Crystal Scott, Adam Cochrane, Heather Cochrane, Candi Johner, April Gonzalez, and James & Stephany Smith, and son’s widow, Katie Scott, his brother Rick & Teresa Scott, his sister Marcia & Chuck Blumhardt, his Father and Mother-in-law, Lary & Lola Severyn, his Grandchildren Stephanie Cooper, Spencer Scott, Tristian “Paige” & Bryce Burkhardt, Aaron Scott, Drake Cordel, Jaylan Cochrane, Kaleb Ruff, Zander Cochrane, Millie Cochrane, Ava Gonzalez, Ty Cochrane, A.J. Gonzalez, Macie Scott, Kenny Johner, Connor Smith, Cole Scott, Noah Johner, and great-Grandchildren, Carter Scott, Jude Scott, Camden Cooper, Lilith Scott, and Nolan Cooper.
