Kenneth A. Scott was born on July 9, 1950 to Kenneth Clayton and Dorothy Colleen (Salem) Scott in Dodge City, Kansas.  He passed away on March 21, 2021 at North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, Colorado. 

After High School graduation Ken attended Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colorado 1968 – 1969; College of Emporia 1970 – 1972 and later the Johnson & Wales Culinary Institute in Providence, Rhode Island. 

Ken held various employments; he worked at Sipple Oil from 1967 – 1968; Bartender 1970 – 1972 during his college years; Lutheran Church Camp Maintenance Manager/Head Chef, Westcliff, Colorado for three years; music director at Arizona State Prison near Winslow, Arizona for three years; he worked as a chef at various Marriott locations, Buffalo Wild Wings in Denver, Colorado and the Country Club in Yuma, Colorado.   

Ken was an avid cook and excellent vocalist, he played Daddy Warbucks in Little Orphan Annie and even tried out for America’s Got Talent in 2013. Ken loved to share his gift of music at weddings, church services, funerals, and was best known for the Lord’s Prayer. Kenny even wrote some of his own music.  He sang through the west as attested by the many tributes on his facebook page.  Ken was willing to find time to drop everything, drive across the state to a small church in Swan Valley to just sing one song at a friend’s wedding at his own expense.   

Ken was preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Dorothy Scott. 

He is survived by his sister, Susan Scott of Yuma, Colorado and brother, Bill Scott of Idaho Falls, Idaho along with other relatives and friends. 

There will be a memorial service at a later date.  Baucke Funeral Home directed the arrangements.
