Scott grew up in Riverview, Mich., and graduated from Gabriel Richard Catholic High School in 1980. He married Mitzi Jo (Williams) Doss on May 17, 1997.
In 1986, Scott earned a B.A. in Liberal Studies from the University of Michigan, Dearborn, and in 1990 received an M.B.A in Human Resources-Personnel Management from Michigan State University, East Lansing.

Scott thrived when enjoying time with family and friends. He was the first to say “Let’s go” if a family member or friend was in need or had a celebration. Scott was an avid reader and his passions included fishing, biking, cross-country skiing, canoeing, hiking, gardening, camping, coaching, and all sports. His greatest joy was coaching his boys in football, baseball and hockey. Attending his grandchildren’s activities brought love to his eyes and warmth to his smile. He relished the time he spent supporting their accomplishments and celebrating their successes. His motto was “Find fun every day,” whether at home or at work.
