Scott Austin (Moen) McAllister Obituary
Scott Austin McAllister, Oct. 20, 1990 – Nov. 9, 2014, age 24, beloved son of Bruce Craig McAllister and Reva Ellen Austin McAllister, died at home on Sunday due to his decade-long illness of drug addiction.
Scott was a gentle soul, kind and open to all. He had many friends and family whom he cared for deeply. His love was returned and he knew that he was loved. We only wish that he would have allowed us do more to help him overcome his addictions.
Scott was an intellectual, prone to deep thinking and discussion. He was a gifted writer and speaker. He attended Sanger High School in Sanger, California. He played water polo and loved participating in debate tournaments. As a freshman, he competed in the National Debates in Grapevine, Texas.
He moved back to Provo, Utah in 2006 with his family and attended Utah Valley University. He loved philosophy, raves and riding dirt bikes with his family in the mountains above Manti, Utah. He brought joy and fun to those who knew him and he fell in love several times but these most meaningful relationships never lasted.
Scott leaves no wife or child behind. He is survived by his parents and by his sister, Christine Ellen McAllister, who are honored to have had him in their lives. His large family on both sides will miss him greatly.
He is the grandson of Edna Ellen Hebdon Austin and Vernon Waddups Austin, now living in Blackfoot, Idaho, and of Mary Lou Chamberlain McAllister and Patrick Von McAllister, Sr., now living in Spanish Fork, Utah.
