Scott Kay Morrill passed away on June 6, 2023 after a valiant four-year fight with metastatic melanoma. He left this earth life surrounded by those who knew him best and loved him. He was born on Oct 7, 1954 to Horace Leroy Morrill Jr and Anna Olsen Morrill.
Growing up in Pocatello, Idaho in a family of nine children, Scott enjoyed sports, motorcycles, hunting and fishing. A 1972 graduate of Highland High School at age 17, he was a good student and athlete who competed on both the football and wrestling teams. He continued playing competitive baseball after high school for several years and was known for having a great throwing arm! Scott attended Idaho State University before going on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Melbourne, Australia from 1974-1976. After returning from his mission, he attended Brigham Young University, graduating with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1980. While at BYU, he met his wife Pamela; they were married August 16, 1978 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.
After graduation, Scott and Pam moved to Boise, Idaho to work at a large engineering firm and added 3 children to their family. A set of twin boys were welcomed to the family after moving to Wenatchee, Washington to work for a small consulting firm. After several years working for others, Scott decided to open his own engineering consulting business. The family moved to Cache Valley, where Scott and Pam finished raising their 5 children in Young Ward, Utah.
Scott was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served in many leadership positions, but he was a gospel doctrine teacher most often and loved studying and teaching the scriptures. He will be remembered for his thoughtful and well-prepared Sunday lessons.
Scott was preceded in death by his father Horace, mother Anna, and older sister Judy. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Pam, five children and their spouses: Aubrey (Jason), Justin (Aubrey), Trenton (Brittany), Jake, Jarrett (Natalie), and 10 grandchildren.
The family would like to give a heartfelt thank you to the doctors and staff at Huntsman Cancer Center with a special thank you to Sherrie for her excellent guidance and care. We also wish to thank Dr. Bair at Gossner Cancer Center and his kind, compassionate staff members Casey and Jill.
