It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of F. Scott Kee of New Braunfels, Texas. Scott went to be with the Lord Sunday, November 8, 2020 at the age of 74. He was born on July 25, 1946 in Tyler, Texas to Ben Roberts and Gwendolynn Perdue Kee.

Scott began his career teaching physical education at TCU. He then entered into service to our country in 1971 as an Air Force pilot flying C-118 Liftmasters and T-39 Sabreliners achieving the rank of Captain before leaving service. He continued his career in sales and logistics retiring as a Vice President in the international automotive industry.

Scott was well known by all for the joy he found from finding the adventures in life - often creating his own. Sometimes “adventure” meant hard work, more often it meant mischief and laughter. If there were shenanigans about, it was no surprise to find Scott somewhere in the mix. Mostly, “adventure” was whatever he made it to be along the way, and without fail, there was joy. A proud father and loving husband, Scott’s family was his greatest adventure. He was incredibly generous with his time and talents. He strove to make others happy and was often the first to offer a helping hand. He loved to bring people together. Scott enjoyed the adventures of riding motorcycles with friends, flying planes, hunting, and building things – ultimately building his dream home in New Braunfels where he enjoyed the best adventures of all with the love of his life, Jane. Scott will always be remembered for his kindness, that instigating grin, his genuine friendship, his love of laughter, giant hugs, and most of all, for his joy of life. He reminded us to “live well, take care of each other, and laugh.”

Scott was preceded in death by his father, Ben Roberts Kee. He is survived by his mother, Gwen Kee; loving wife of 53 years, Jane Kee; brother, Robert L. Kee (Lovely); sister, Judy Ruth Curley (Steve); daughter, Judy Katherine Southworth (Scott); son, Ben Wesley Kee (Jamie); grandchildren, Ryan Lars Southworth, and Hayden Lee; and so many close family friends.

Scott will be honored at a private family service at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery. Family and friends are welcome to sign his online guestbook and view a photo collection of favorite memories at www.zoellerfuneralhm.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your local Food Bank to support families in need during this difficult time.

I am Scott Southworth’s mother. Scott Kee’s son in law . The first time I met Scott Kee he came over and greeted me. He took my hand and said to me ‘ we are pleased to have Scott (southworth) join our family. Very earnestly he said to me’ you did something very right with this young man. ‘ I was so moved by this. He was always kind to me and I enjoyed seeing Scott and Jane. The sorrow is beyond words.

Scott was such a wonderful, friendly guy and a pleasure to be around. I know he will truly be missed by those that love him. My only regret is not getting to spend more time with him and Jane when they lived in the DFW area. Truly a loss!

Jane, our deepest condolences. Sending many thoughts and prayers your way. Hard to believe the news and we were so saddened to learn of Scott’s passing. What a wonderful man he was. Truly one of the nicest and kindest men I believe I’ve ever met. A genuine friend and true gentleman with every sense of the word that conveys.

We first met you guys through the Star 206 chapter and looked forward to seeing you for the years we were involved at the various rides and events.

Again our best wishes for the future for you and your family.

Scott was an awesome guy. I truly loved riding with him. I will miss all the Star B ques that we shared. He was one of a kind. Always had a smile on his face and showed concern for all that he met. He will be missed by so many of us that had the pleasure of meeting him and knowing him. RIP my friend.

Jane,

I am so so sorry. Scott was honestly the sweetest, kindest and most caring person I've ever met. When my parents moved into the neighborhood, you both welcomed them with open arms. You had become their new best friends and family in New Braunfels. I am forever grateful for the love you've shown my family, and myself, in trying times. I will miss Scott's laughter, genuine spirit, and of course, his peanut brittle. You and your family are in my thoughts and want you to know I am here if you need anything.

Love,
Kyle

Scott Kee was one of the first people we met when we moved to Vintage Oaks in New Braunfels. Scott consistently demonstrated friendliness and generosity to strangers and friends alike. We will miss the many discussions we had with him about our past histories, the local community and Texas in general. His leadership and dedication to the Vintage Oaks veterans organization was inspirational. We will miss him dearly and are very sorry for your loss.

We are grieving with you all. Scott was a wonderful friend, delighting us with his stories, impressing us with his talents [woodworking, for one of many!], beating us in table games [sometimes!], sharing meals and good conversation, and being available any time we called on him for anything! We are sending our love and prayers to each of you as you face the days ahead without having this great man in your lives. ~Nan and Ed

What a friend we have lost, and I would definitely call Scott a good friend! I will miss the adventures we got to share! Rest in peace my Brother, until we meet again! God Bless.
