Since his early days, Scott was very skillful and received his Eagle Scout and continued to use his resourcefulness and talents to further hone his skills in his maintenance trade for over 20 years. Outside of work, he was a major sports fan and loved the Kansas City Chiefs, NY Yankees, Utah Jazz, Utes, and LA Kings. He also enjoyed watching and playing golf. He attended many NASCAR races when he could and would watch from the comfort of his couch any other time.

Scott enjoyed the outdoors and would go camping, hunting, or fishing with friends and family. He enjoyed playing horseshoes and even had a pit in his backyard. Scott was incredibly meticulous about his lawncare. His lawn and flowers were his pride and joy, and anyone driving by could probably catch him watering his plants or mowing the lawn.

Scott was an amazing cook and grill master. He enjoyed cooking for anyone and everyone with a breakfast that could rival the best restaurants. No one would leave the house with an empty stomach whenever he cooked. Not only did he love food, but he was also a whiskey connoisseur and regularly had a whiskey with Pepsi.

Scott was a great friend to everyone he met. He always had a smile on his face and was friendly and kind. His home was open to everyone, and he’d happily go out of his way to help a friend or neighbor out. Not only was he a great person to those around him but to animals too. Scott had many different pets throughout his life. You could find dogs, cats, fish, and even a gecko in the house. A Golden Lab, Dexter, was his companion and best friend for many years.

He is survived by his father, Veron Godfrey, and many other loved ones.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Karma Godfrey and his dog, Dexter.

Scott is one of the best guys I’ve ever known. He has always had a huge heart and has been my dads best friend as long as I can remember. It was a joy having him up to Denver last year and I always enjoyed talking with him on the phone while he and my pops were hanging out. He will be missed. May he Rest In Peace.

Oh my goodness where do I start!!! I just can't believe we've lost one of the great ones!!!! Scottie was such a good friend to me, my husband my daughter (whom he adored) and brother. Whenever we needed a friend to talk to, a place to stay or even just a place to kick it, you could always kick it at his house with open arms. He's going to be dearly missed. I can't believe you're gone Scottie!!! You will always be remembered, never forgotten that's for sure. He was and always will be one of the great ones!!! R.I.P My Friend!!!! love you Scottie!!!!! .
