Scott Anthony Cope Obituary
Cope, Scott Anthony
52, of Scottsdale, AZ earned his angel wings on September 21, 2016. Born in Phoenix, AZ on December 29, 1963 to William R. Cope and Dorothy Ann Cope (nee DeBoer). Scott is preceded in death by his mother, Dorothy Ann Cope and his sister, Lorene Jane Cope. He is survived by his father, William R. Cope. Scott was not married but did have a fur baby, Sheila. Sheila was Scott's best friend. Scott was a native Arizonan and attended Tonto Grade School and Coronado High School. During his high school days, he relocated to Taiwan for a year with his family, due to his father's job with Motorola. He attended a Christian School while in Taiwan. Scott enjoyed getting to know the customs and trying all the different foods during his stay. When the family came back a year later, Scott went back to Coronado High School. Scott loved the Arizona outdoors and enjoyed fishing, camping and motorcycle riding. It was his love of motorcycles that led him to Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix, AZ. He graduated, earning a certificate as a motorcycle mechanic. After graduating, Scott received several jobs working on motorcycles. While working as a motorcycle mechanic, he decided to enroll at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ to major in business. After long days at school and work, Scott graduated from ASU with a Bachelor's degree in Business. He decided there was no stopping him on his journey to making the big bucks so he enrolled to get his MBA at University of Phoenix. Scott also taught at Phoenix College in Culinary. Scott did a lot of traveling in his lifetime, and really loved the beach so much that he decided to go live in California for a couple years. His dad and his dad's girlfriend helped him move. What an awesome trip. Scott was home sick for his Arizona roots, so he moved back to Scottsdale to live out the rest of his life. Scott will be missed by his cousins, Pam, Kathy, Peggy, Staci, Kari, Aunt Barbara, Uncle Richard, and his friends. Scott, you left us too soon, but I do understand. You are now free, go dance. I love you and miss you. -Dad. Scott will be buried by his mom and sister at
Paradise Memorial Gardens, 9300 E. Shea Blvd, Scottsdale. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Scott's honor to ASPCA or Animal Welfare League. Arrangement entrusted to Messinger Indian School Mortuary.
