Scott was born on August 14, 1959, in Scottsbluff, to Jack Jorn and Dorothy Joann (Cochran) Corr. The family moved to Simi Valley, California when he was 5 and returned to Melbeta, Nebraska at the age of 15. Scott graduated from Melbeta High School in 1977. Following school, Scott worked at Kelly Bean for a short time before moving to Alliance to begin his career with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad on April 29, 1979. Scott worked as a Conductor for 42 years until his cancer diagnosis in December of 2021. Scott’s official retirement from BSNF was November of 2022. Towards the end of Scott’s career his years of faithful service earned him one of the top seniority spots within the Powder River Division. Outside of his career, Scott served two terms as Mayor for the City of Minatare, was a volunteer fireman, EMT, as well as a certified diver for search and rescue. Scott resided in Minatare from 1984-1999.

Scott was united in marriage to Shelley Guzman on July 10, 1999, in Scottsbluff. They made their home in Scottsbluff.

Scott abided by three religions; church, golf, and football. Scott was a faithful member of St. Agnes Catholic Church and served as Sacristan and Eucharistic Minister. Scott was an excellent golfer, and his golfing buddies were a second family to him. Scott and Shelley’s favorite season was Husker Football Season. They attended all the home football games and loudly cheered rain or shine, win or loss. He was an avid LA Dodgers fan and enjoyed riding his Harley. Scott’s biggest passion was family, and he coached his children and their friends in all sports, but his favorite was coaching baseball in the summers.
