Tom Scott Obituary
Born May 17, 1929
Died July 3, 2009
Tom was born in Albany, Ore., to Floyd M Scott and Avis (Langmack) Scott. He attended school in Albany and continued his education at The University of Oregon and Vanport College, which later became Portland State.
In 1953 Tom eloped with Juanita Louise Reitz. They were married in Reno, Nev. Tom and Nita had five children: Joe, Dick, Jack, Maria and Margaret.
The family continued to live in Oregon where Tom pumped gas for a Chevron service station and later became the owner of his own station. His station did the service work for the Meryl Taylor Volkswagen dealer in Albany and after a short time Tom went to work for the Volkswagen dealership as the used cars sales manager. In two years Tom became the sales manager for the dealership. Meryl Taylor suggested that Tom consider starting his own dealership so Tom along with Meryl bought a vacant lot and started the Mazda/Subaru dealership in Albany. In 1971 Tom had opportunity to open a dealership in Nampa, so he sold out in Oregon and moved his family to Nampa.
He opened the Mazda/Subaru dealership on 11th Avenue and over the years the dealership has grown to include Toyota and Honda auto malls.
Tom was an outdoorsman enjoying shooting, riding motorcycles and exploring the Owyhee Mountain area of south Idaho. He enjoyed music, taking pictures, good cigars, telling stories and making people happy.
Family and friends were very important to Tom and over the years his family has grown to include the husbands and wives of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Tom lost Nita to cancer in 1994. On June 20, 2002, Tom married Jeanne Brown and added her three sons, Greg M Brown, Caldwell, J. Richard Brown, Madrid, Spain and Mark A. Brown, Palm Springs, Calif., to his family.
Tom and Jeanne have enjoyed the last seven years traveling and enjoying their extended family.
Tom leaves his wife Jeanne, children Joe (Roberta), Nampa; Dick (Dee Dee), Boise; Jack (Anita), Meridian; Maria (Scott) McDonald, Nampa; and Margaret (DH) Moss, Star; grandchildren Avis, Danny, Jessica, Zach, Taylor, Nick, Caleb, Clifford and Jeremiah; brother Robert (Joanne) and nephew Floyd of Albany.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
The family requests memorials be made to the Boys & Girls Club, Nampa or Make-A-Wish.
