Scott was born August 11, 1969, in Hastings, NE to Charles & Joyce (Elliott) Sell. He graduated from Hastings Senior High School in 1987 and attended Central Community College in Hastings. Scott married Tammy Marquardt on June 6, 1992, at Grace United Methodist Church. Scott had numerous jobs over the years including Allen’s, Thermo King, T-L Irrigation, Boyds Vending and the latest was a truck driver for Tri-State Oil Reclaimers of Cheyenne, WY. He was a member of Grace United Methodist Church.
Scott enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, working on cars including his beloved 1969 Ford Mustang, playing cards, throwing horseshoes, walking his dogs, Rain, Cabela and Berlin, and being an active parent with Boy Scout Troop #192. He was so proud to help his son achieve Eagle Scout, and always being the best dad to his children.
Scott loved making people laugh, often with an Elvis or Johnny Cash impersonation or an Australian accent. Scott never met a stranger. Scott touched so many lives and he lived every day to the fullest. “If you’re not having fun…you’re wasting your life” he would say.
Scott was preceded in death by his grandparents; father, Charles Sell; and mother-in-law, Ardyce (Coplen) Marquardt.
