Aug. 22, 1956 – Sept. 22, 2020
Scott Keith, 64, of Gillette, passed away peacefully on Sept. 22, 2020 at Wyoming Medical Center while suffering from a brief illness.
Scott was born in Buffalo on Aug. 22, 1956 to Lee and Emily Blair Keith. He graduated in 1974 from Kaycee High School. Scott graduated from Casper College with a degree in agri-business in 1976.
In 1986 Scott married Brenda Kay Michelena of Buffalo and they moved to Casper where they became deeply rooted in the Casper community. Scott and Brenda had a daughter Danielle and a son Casey who were their priority. Their children participated in numerous sports and clubs. Scott and Brenda never missed an opportunity to cheer them on. You could find Scott behind the grill at Kelly Walsh football games, leading the crowd in first down cheers, working the pool deck at swim meets and fundraising for the Kelly Walsh Booster Club.
Scott loved his work in the agricultural world. He worked for Farm Credit Services of America and various other financial institutions. That led him into a job with Mooreman’s Feeds as a salesman throughout Wyoming. In the years that followed he worked for the Wyoming Business Council, which took him all over the western hemisphere including Canada and Argentina. During that time, Scott assisted in the creation of multiple ag-related associations, including, but not limited to, the Wyoming Hay and Forage Association and Future Cattle Producers of Wyoming. While manager of the Wyoming Hay and Forage Association, Scott was instrumental in representing Wyoming hay producers when they won the World Forage Analysis Superbowl in Madison, Wisconsin two years running.
After Brenda’s passing in 2010, Scott met Tracy Smith in Casper. They enthusiastically took on many endeavors. Scott began working as a contractor for Big Iron Auctions in 2016. Tracy played a pivotal role in marketing the business. Together they were members of the Church at the Barn. Scott loved and treated Tracy’s children and grandchild as his own. Scott and Tracy were residing in Gillette at the time of his passing.
Scott is survived by his daughter Danielle (Shane) Friesen of Riverton, his son Casey (Haley) of Casper and their expected child, his sister Liz Burris of Fort Worth, Texas, Tracy Smith his significant other of Gillette, family and numerous friends. Scott was preceded in death by his wife Brenda and his parents Lee and Emily Keith.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Kelly Walsh Booster Club, the Casper Swim Club or the donor’s choice would be appreciated.
