Scot Allen Rutherford was born on November 6th, 1962, in Denison, Iowa, and very suddenly passed away on July 4th, 2023 in Lincoln, Nebraska at age 60. Survived by his mother, Donna, his two daughters, Vanessa and Jessica, and his two dogs, Bubba and Lacey. His father, Wayne, passed away around four years prior.
He was in the Nebraska Army National Guard, and most recently held the job of Controller at ArtFX. A very kind man, Scot always saw the best in everyone. He was always accepting of everyone, and loved his family dearly. He loved spending time with his family and friends. He’s so kind and loving. He loves listening to music, Nebraska Volleyball and Football, and watching new shows released on streaming services. He always tried to do everything for everyone. He wanted to make everyone around him happy all the time.
He’s such an incredibly amazing and special man, who would light up any room he walked into. He could walk into a bar knowing no one, and walk out at the end of the night with everyone exclaiming “Bye Scot”. He always tried to do the best for his daughter Vanessa, and did everything possible to make her happy. He loved joking with, making fun of, and arguing with his loved ones. It’s his way of showing how much he really truly cares about you. All of us love him so very much, and we all miss him dearly.
