Scott William Files

July 1, 1966 - March 1, 2018

Scott William Files, 51, our beloved son, brother, father, uncle, grandfather and partner, has died suddenly, on March 1, 2018.  He was born July 1, 1966 to William and Kathleen Files in Ogden, UT.  He graduated from Bonneville High School.

Scott lived many places and touched many lives, who like all of us found his humor to be an amazing part of his personality.  His smile was constant and beautiful.  Life was not easy for Scott at times, but he would carry on with a positive attitude and make it all good.

He was a good son who always kept track of his parents. He was an ace photographer and his pictures were published in motorcycle racing magazines.  He flew gliders, rode quads, fished, camped, and hunted.  He is gliding again with his angel wings.  He was always fun loving and a very adventurous soul and will be missed by many whose lives will be less without Scott.

Scott is survived by his parents; brother, Dan Files (Leslie); Michele Southwick (Troy); and his love, Valerie Selleneit; daughters, Shandra Heaton-Sorenson and McKell Files; step-kids, Kevin Anderson and Mattea Anderson.

A Celebration of Life for Scott will be held on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 2:00 pm at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 – 36th St., in Ogden. Family will greet friends from 1:00 – 1:45 pm prior the Celebration.

Scott was my very first kiss. I lived next to his grandparents across from Emerald Hills. He wrote me a hundred letters when you moved to Hawaii and we stayed friend. I am sorry to hear about his death. He was a sweetheart and I know he will be missed.

Scott was such a loving man and cared about everyone around him! The time we spent together was quality time and I felt like the most important person in his world. I will miss you so much!

Many fond memories of Scott. Deer hunting with the Files clan in Grouse Creek, actually did more dirt biking than hunting! Exploring backroads of the same range in the VW wagon Bill handed down to Scott. Hiking Birch Creek during a rain storm and Scott provided fish using his .22 rifle- he was very skilled. Sacking out in the old Mustang with Scott and Colin Murphy. Scott will be missed, but I believe we will one day be reunited and see his smile once again.

Scott was a dear friend, always to be found with a huge smile and a kind word! I hadn't seen him in a very long time, but he will be missed! My love and condolences to his family!

Scott was indeed a beautiful toe-headed little boy, the first of all the male cousins to be born into the Malone clan. Always bright eyed and excitable about the days adventures. He was the child with the mud between his toes and a slingshot in his back pocket. He grew up in a loving family that lived a very adventuresome life whether it be on the beaches of Hawaii or the little towns in Germany. R I P Scotty
