Scott Lawrence Sackett 1961-2008 - Class of '79

Birth: Jul. 5, 1961
San Bernardino County
California, USA
Death: Aug. 20, 2008
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA

Our beloved son, brother, father, grandfather, and friend passed away
unexpectedly in his home on August 20, 2008. It is extremely difficult
to describe with words alone, this man and his contributions to our
lives, and our feeling of loss.

Scott was born July 5, 1961 in Barstow, California to Allen Kay
Sackett, Sr. and Myrtle Viola George. He grew up in Barstow and had a
zest for life and adventure. He married Connie Darlene Weaver in 1980,
they had three children and divorced 11 years later. In 1987, Scott
suffered a debilitating accident that left him in a wheelchair. At
that time he moved to Salt Lake City where he was immediately
surrounded by those willing to help him with his recovery. He did not
let his accident dampen his love for life. Scott was the most generous
person any of us knew. He was always willing to give of his time and
resources to help those around him. Scott had a great sense of humor
and loved to laugh. He loved to go fishing with his family and
friends. Scott had great love and respect for his family, and was most
proud of his children. He loved to spend time with his children and
grandchildren, and made himself available at every opportunity to do
so. He was a great dad, and an integral part of the lives of those
close to him. We will all miss him dearly.

He is survived by his children, Scott Lawrence Sackett, II (Rebecca),
Kristina Marie Harper (Caleb), Amber Dawn Sackett; parents Allen and
Myrtle Sackett; siblings, Allen Sackett, Jr. (Petra), Craig Sackett
(Diana), Anna Fabrizio (David), Bret Sackett (Michelle); grandchildren
Brayden Scott Harper, Zander David Harper, Mason Scott Sackett, Tyker
Lewis Sackett, McKenna Jane Sackett, Remington Marie Harper; and many
nieces, nephews, and other extended family.
