Robert "Scott" Darrah, age 57, of Council Bluffs, passed away on November 9, 2020 due to complications from Covid-19. Scott was born on July 29, 1963 to Bob and Saundra (Ward) Darrah of Beebeetown, Iowa. He was a graduate of Tri-Center High School and Creighton University.

He was part of the Million Dollar Round Table for 14 years, Top of the Table for 6 years, Circle of Success for 5 years, and was most recently a member of the National Association of Estate Planners. Scott served as president of the Morning Rotary Club and was a Paul Harris Fellow. He had also served as the local president of Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Scott took his daughters to Disney World many times, and as recently as, last December to ring in the New Year in 2020. He and his daughters all celebrated special birthdays with Disney cruises.
