Scott Fitzgerald Denny was born on January 16, 1968, at Auburn Faith Hospital. He attended local schools and the learning institute in San Francisco, Calif., as he had severe Dyslexia. Despite his disability, he went on to become a man with many capabilities.
Scott was a Firefighter/EMT, and heavy equiptment operator with CDF, BLM, and Placer Hills Fire Dept. He served as both Assistant Chief, and Chief of Colfax Volunteer Fire Dept. Scott was a logger, mechanic, dump truck owner/operator and mail carrier. In 2006 he went back to school at Sierra College to become a blacksmith and certified welder.
He was fortunate as to have three best friends, Don Rundle, Barry Queen, and Scott Berry.
Scott was preceded in death by his mother, Barbara Denny. He is survived by his father, Robert Denny, sisters, Diane (Brian), Eve (Gwen), and brother Bart (Debbie), Nieces, Erin and Allie, and many crazy but loved cousins. Scott is also survived by his companion of 11 years, Jennifer. His step-sons, Connor Hanley, Michael Sutton, and Aren (Valentina) Sutton, and grandson, Aren aka Tigger.
Scott fought a courageous battle with cancer. He often served as entertainment for the many medical professionals, Dr's, and nurses that cared for him. We especially thank the Staff at Sutter Hand and physical Therapy, and Auburn Infusion Center, Dr. Suhag's office, and the nurses at Auburn Faith Hospital.
A memorial service will be held at the Sierra Vista Community Center in Colfax, Calif., on Sunday, June 15, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.
