In Memory of Scott Ferguson
Scott was raised in Baker County and graduated from Baker High School. He was a proud veteran of the Marine Corps and had nine years experience as a deputy before becoming a dispatcher in 2002. Having worked both sides of the radio was an asset for himself and his co-workers.
Scott had a great sense of humor. He was a prankster and enjoyed every prank pulled. Scott, in his pranking on a quiet night, could lead his fellow officers to a vacant lot or dusty road, totally serious. Or put lotion on the door knobs at the office, or someone's car door handles and not only laugh the first time he did it, but the second, third and ...
Scott loved the outdoors, four-wheeling, hunting, fishing, and camping with his son. He thought he was a good cook - the hotter the better! He won awards at trap shoots as a boy, and enjoyed woodworking and reloading. He loved everything pertaining to guns, from websites for the latest and greatest to wheeling and dealing with other gun lovers.
Scott was a "man of faith", and lived it. He was sure to let you know how important you were in his life, and was a friend you could depend on and talk to about anything. He had a humble demeanor that put people at ease both in person and on the phone.
Family and friends made this tribute: "They say that tears are words from the heart that can't be spoken, we his family and friends know that firsthand. We shall forever remember our "Scotty the Body".
