Mr. Scott Edwin Abram

November 16, 1960October 13, 2019

Scott Edwin Abram, of Hurst, Texas passed away on October 13, 2019 in Bedford, Texas. He will be remembered as a loving husband, son-in-law, friend and colleague to many; as well as brother, uncle, nephew and cousin to his family. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. He was born on November 16, 1960 to Paul and Joyce Abram in Bloomington, Indiana but lived the majority of his life in Arizona and Texas.

Scott was an aviator through and through. He took his first flying lesson at age 14 and soloed on his 16th birthday. On his 18th birthday he marched with his "letters" down to the local FSDO office and walked out with every license and certificate he was old enough to hold. That day he became a professional pilot when he gave a student his first flying lesson. He was hired at American Airlines at age 24 with over 3,000 hours earned the hard way at Sun West Airlines. In his almost 35 year career at AA he went quickly from Engineer and FO on the 727, to checking out as Captain on the MD80 right after he turned 30. While sidelined for more than a decade mid-career by various aliments, he returned to AA to fly the 737 and ended his career doing what he most enjoyed, flying international on the 777.

Scott is survived by his wife Pam Abram, step daughter Micaela Burford, mother-in-law Anita King, cousin Sandra Dillman, uncle Tim Abram, nephew Sean Mock and niece Amanda Mock, as well as numerous other aunts, uncles and cousins.

I met Scott at AA flying the MD-80, and we quickly hit it off. We "buddy bid" back in the day so I probably flew more with Scott than any other AA pilot. We flew month after month together for years. Although we lived in different cities, Scott helped me through a serious crisis in my life. He is one of the only people I can call a true friend. When he was sidelined with a medical problem, after he came back, he found my schedule and traded trips so that he could fly with me on his first day back, which was a nice surprise. I also was sidelined with a medical issue, and have never made it back, so unfortunately, Scott and I drifted out of touch over the last few years. My condolences to the family, but please know that Scott is in my and my wifes thoughts. He was a truly remarkable human being. I was blessed to know him for almost 30 years.

I knew Scott almost from day -1 at AA! He had flown with my brother Skip quite often and I met Scott through him. As a Check Airman on the MD80, I had the privilege of completing his check-out as an MD80 Captain. In my 12 years as a CKA, Scott was without question one of the finest aviators I had the joy of working with! A fine man, brother in the Lord, and as I've read, a treasure to other friends and family! I pray the peace of Jesus be with your family now!
