1970 - 2015
Our beloved husband, father, brother and son left his family too early on October 5, 2015.
Scot was born in Murray, Utah on April 21, 1970 to Jesse James and Barbara Peacock. He graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1988 and served an honorable LDS mission in the Seattle Tacoma Mission from 1989-1991. Scot met Jennifer Carn at a church dance in 1992. They were married for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on June 11, 1994 and added to their eternal family with Jake in 1998, Sage in 2002 and Sadi in 2005.
Scot worked as a case manager for Salt Lake County Drug Court. Scot's true joy came from his family. Whether he was watching his kids dance, play baseball, softball, lacrosse, football, violin or choir concerts, or sitting around a campfire, he had the biggest smile on his face when he was surrounded by those he loved. His family will treasure the many happy memories of camping with Scot as the keeper of the firewood. He had a testimony of the truthfulness of the restored gospel and served in many capacities in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints including Elders' Quorum presidency and Sunday School teacher. Scot taught his children to be gentle, loving and always willing to help. He loved to joke and make others smile.
Although Scot is not here in his earthly body, he will remain ever by the side of his wife Jennifer, and his children Jake, Sage and Sadi. Through the lives they live on earth, his eternal legacy will continue on until the blessed day they meet again.
He is survived by his wife, Jennifer; children Jake, Sage and Sadi, and siblings Jan Hanson, Sharon McCully, Carol (Craig) Peacock, Lee (Cathy) Peacock, and many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by his parents and brother James.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at the Steeplechase Ward, 13350 South 1750 East in Draper. A viewing will be held on Friday evening from 6-8 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Gardens 1950 East Dimple Dell Road (10600 South), in Sandy and on Saturday morning from 9:30-10:30 a.m. prior to the services at the church.

Jennifer, I think Scot's story is so inspiring. I am working on a magazine celebrating 20 years of drug court in Salt Lake County and would like to mention Scot and his contribution. I would like to talk to you first, if I could. My email is, or call me at 801-532-5444.

Dear Scot's family, I grew up with Scot as we were only 1/2 block away from each other. He was always this big and tall boy but to me he was a nice fellow with great ambition for playing sports and going to church. We played little league soccer, Hillcrest Ute Conference football, Hillcrest Union little league and Babe Ruth baseball league, and lastly church basketball and softball (where he would blast the ball way over left & center field nearly every time at bat) for the same ward! Wherever he played he fought to the end (even when his knees were sore). Not only that he was also a spiritual giant and of course we all have our imperfections he was always dedicated to his faith in the LDS church. I had the pleasure of getting acquainted with him growing up and I appreciated his thoughtfulness toward me (since I've been Deaf all my life). It saddens me that he had to go at this moment, but I know his mortal absence will just be temporary. Farewell until we meet again, my boyhood buddy.

Our dear Peacock family,
We love you! Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. We know Scot is safe with His Father, and will be near you always as you continue your journey here, until you are reunited with him on high. He is a wonderful man, and we always admired his quiet strength and goodness of heart. May the Lord bless you always with comfort and peace. With love, The Dewsnups
