Scot Lewis Wasson

 July 12, 1965 - June 13, 2022


Scot Lewis Wasson, age 56, peacefully passed away on June 13, 2022. 


Scot was born on July 12, 1965 at Shawnee Mission Medical Center in Merriam, Kansas to the late Robert Dorrance Wasson and Jean R. Wasson. 


Scot attended Shawnee Mission North High School, where he met many lifelong friends, as well as many friends from Shawnee Mission West High School. Scots friends and family describe him as humorous, witty, artistic, good hearted, and caring for others; especially the underdog if he could. 


Finding pleasure in life was no challenge for Scot, he adored the mountains of Colorado (where he had lived a few times), playing guitar, hunting, and fishing with his father Robert and his brother Jamie. 


Scot loved his time spent with family more than anything in the world… A close second would be cold beer… or lukewarm beer… or warm beer. He adored his niece Kelly and his nephew Jake. Scot liked to share his knowledge of anything and everything with everyone, even if they really didn’t want it. One Thanksgiving, he decided he needed to show his nephew, Jake, along with Jakes friends, how to ride a dirt bike; The lesson ended up with Scot dropping the clutch, whiskey throttling the bike across the yard, and sitting at the Thanksgiving dinner table with a broken collar bone; with the bike pinned under a truck outside as well. Scot also shared his love for playing the guitar with his great nieces Jaiden and Sydney, the three sat on the back porch learning the guitar chords and lyrics to Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown”, for hours; at the end of the night, the girls played a less than impressive version of the song for the rest of the family, while Scot probably grinned from ear-to-ear that he had spread his love for music on to a younger generation.


There were many things Scot excelled at in his life; hockey, hacky sack, cracking jokes, the list could go on and on. Perhaps the thing Scot was best at was napping. There wasn’t a place in the world he couldn’t fall asleep at or in. An occasion was never too formal, or important that Scot didn’t interrupt with his snoring. 


Being great with kids was one of the things people remember most about Scot. His ability to give the strangest gifts and turn them into a more meaningful memory, will be cherished forever. He brought a snapping turtle, the biggest snapping turtle anyone had seen, in a five-gallon bucket to his great nephews Jake and Jennings for their birthday. The boys still to this day, have never had a more memorable gift. 


Scot leaves behind his brother and sister in- law, Rob and Lori Wasson, nephew Jake Wasson (Abby), niece Kelly Doles (Toney), and his great nieces and nephews, Jaiden, Sydney, Jennings, and Jake Doles, as well as Rew and Hank Wasson.


He joins his dad Robert Wasson, his mother Jean Wasson, his brother James “Jamie” Wasson, and his countless golden retrievers he had over the span of his life.
