Scott Howard Croft, 59, went to be with our Lord on Monday. He was born on September 15, 1953 to Howard and Betty Croft in Carbondale, IL and passed away on Monday September 2, 2013. Scott moved to Shreveport, LA in 1977 after graduating from Abilene Christian University and was a faithful member of both Airline and University Church of Christ for 36 years and also was actively involved in numerous community service programs throughout the Shreveport metro area.
Scott was married to the love of his life and his high school sweetheart, Sheri. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend. He was a man of God who loved children and taught them about Jesus every week in bible class as well as sharing his life and love with everyone he met.
He is survived by his parents, Howard and Betty Croft; his aunt, Carolyn Nelson and his uncle and aunt Frank and Betsy Wilcox. He leaves behind his precious wife, Sheri who he tenderly loved more than words can express. He is also survived by his daughter and husband, Stacey and Sean Brooks; stepson and wife, Ryan and Corrina Vanek and stepdaughter and husband, Julie and Luke Boggs. To cherish his memory are his sister and husband, Sherry and Tony Picciolo; brother and wife, Steven and Donna Croft and sister and husband, Sandy and Ray Shepard. He will be desperately missed by his three grandchildren, Braelyn, Emerson and L.J., along with 14 nieces and nephews, five great nieces and nephews, plus two more scheduled to be born this fall.
Scott was humorous and witty, smart and wise, true and loyal, compassionate and forgiving, generous and loving who walked with God everyday. Thank you Father for blessing all of us with the wonderful gift of sending Scott into our lives.
