After a hard fought battle, Scott Douglas Newman died of Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency on 30 November 2012. He was born in Logan, Utah, on 12 February 1971 to Douglas and Tamera Crozier Newman.
Scott married Janiece Coombs, daughter of Jim and Debra Christensen Coombs, on 14 June 1991 in the Logan LDS Temple. They made their home in Bothwell, Utah. Scott was very proud of his children: Shaunie (Mark) Mackey, Shelby, Shaylie, and Mick.
The birth of Shaunie and Mark’s baby daughter, McCall, brought Scott great joy the last three months of his life. She was his little bed feller: McCall fascinated with the fan; Scott fascinated with his first grandchild.
All the things he didn’t get enough of in his youth, Scott encouraged his kids to do. Mick showed his first show steer at such a young age, he had to peek under its belly to see the judge. Last spring, Scott was bundled in a bus, so the whole family could ride together and cheer for Shelby and Bear River High School (his alma mater) at the state championship softball game. This fall, he managed to watch Shaylie play volleyball at home games.
Scott started the Golden Elite Heifer Futurity Show in Box Elder County and served on county and state fair committees.
Scott reluctantly resigned his position as Customer Service Representative at Greenline Equipment, Tremonton, Utah, early this summer. He was a big man who took great pleasure in big, green machines. Thanks to Greenline and many friends who supported him and his family the past few years.
In addition to his immediate family, Scott is survived by three sisters: Carrie (Mike) Brown, Melissa (Eric) Hansen, and April (Cameron) Greener; in-laws: Jamie Hansen, Cody (Dawn) Coombs, and Chad (Wanda) Coombs; and a large, extended family that supported and loved him. He was greeted on the other side by all his grandparents.
Funeral services for Scott will be held Tuesday December 4, 2012 at Noon in the Tremonton West Stake Center (345 S. 1000 W. Tremonton, UT). There will be a viewing held at the stake center Monday Evening December 3, 2012 from 6-8 p.m. and previous to the funeral from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Interment in the Valley View Cemetery, Bothwell, UT.
