Scott N. Westmoreland

Scott Westmoreland fought a strong, courageous battle against the ravages of cancer for three long years. He lost his fight, however, on April 8, 2014 in Carrollton, with his mom and his sister by his side.

Scott was 50 years old, having celebrated his birthday Feb. 24. He was born on that date in 1964, to his loving parents, Bill and Dianne Westmoreleand, of Friendswood.

Scott was a 1982 graduate of Friendswood High School and a 1988 graduate of the University of Houston, after which he was employed by Five Star Transportation for nine years. His next job, with Standard Register, in Houston, had taken him to Carollton four years before, after having lived in Friendswood while growing up. His dedication to his work was evident to all who knew him.

Scott was such a joy to be around, always smiling and happy, and his amazing optimistic attitude stayed the same throughout his illness.

He enjoyed golfing, biking and kayaking, and later became a NASCAR racing fan. Most important, however, were his family and friends, his job and co-workers. His eyes lit up when he talked about his workplace. He loved it! The people there were like family to him. Scott also loved traveling, and one of his favorite places was Cape Cod, where he golfed and spent special times with the Liszcz family.

Keeping the traditions of his family and friends was a signifcant part of his life. He was always a favorite of the children at any gathering.

Scott knew Jesus as his Savior, was baptized, and for many years attended the Freindswood Church of Christ. Being God’s child, he has now gone Home, where there will be no pain, no sorrow, no tears. We, his family and friends, will miss him dearly, but feel blessed to have had him in our lives. He will live in our hearts and memories forever.
