I met Scott working at Frontier Communications, he will be missed dearly. Scott would make me laugh and smile on a bad day. He was very sarcastic and always had a good comeback to anything that was being said. He never listened to advise (ha ha) and was never at his desk. I will miss seeing Scott walking around with his head phones blasting to heavy metal, and will definitely miss showing up to work to find a plate of bbq, or something tasty he whipped up wanting to share. I miss my friend, miss him very much. Rest In Peace Scott, until we meet again. My condolences for the family, I am so sorry for your loss . Scott was very much loved and will be missed dearly.

I remember...Scott was a passionate man...loved his son and daughter...loved to bbq...loved his car(s)...loved wrestling...loved heavy metal (and mosh?pits)...loved Stephen King novels...loved football...beer...he loved love. At one time, Scott was my cubie mate and I felt Very lucky! He was SO smart! Of course, he was rarely at his desk! He was Always away helping someone! He was my neighbor at one time (upstairs apt).
To you and your family...I offer my deepest, most sincere condolences and my prayers.
Sincerely, Brenda Stewart (WA state)

I was so saddened to hear of Scott's passing. I worked with him at Verizon. He was a kind, super smart, incredibly stubborn (especially if he was right) young man. He would crack me up sometimes and I know I exasperated him...a few times on purpose because it was funny to me to see him roll his eyes and stalk off in frustration. My thoughts and prayers are with him, and his family. Eternal rest grant unto him and let perpetual light shine on him.

Scott “Ace” Crabtree
I first met Ace in April 1998, as we both sat waiting to begin orientation as new employees with GTE. There was this young man, barely out of his teens, and I, a near 20-year Army veteran. For reasons I’d only later come to realize, Scott and I hit it off immediately and were nearly inseparable for two years during our smoke breaks and occasional Pay-Per-View WWE Wrestling night. As a mountain is to a hill, so was Scott’s love for the WWE compared to mine. He would hoop and fight his way through each round, ignoring his spills of beer in the process.
During those first two years, we two would take turns speaking our heart during our smoke breaks together, more and more until he felt more like my son than a fellow employee. In many ways, I believe Scott imprinted on my heart, and perhaps I did on his; I will never know. For my ambitions took me in another direction and his to his own, as was expected of a lone wolf type, such as he was.
That was 22 years ago. And two days ago, another friend from that same era, broke the horrible news of Scott’s untimely passing.
For a season, there will be very little joy for me, no full moons and no brightness. I miss Scott’s sharp wolfen eyes, his biting wit and his lone wolf ways, which will no longer make their marks across our paths.
As for his survivors, his mother, siblings, partners and children, I offer my deepest and sincerest condolences. For I know that Scott was born with a flickering light, only kept full and bright by his sheer will power. Yet the light he shared and transferred to you shall never die, if you and yours keep moving onwards and upwards. Nothing makes the pain of loss less, however the waves of pain do subside with time, and eventually turn into ripples of sadness. Let your grief flow and follow its path to the other side: love of life!
And if by chance, Scott’s soul can roam for a few days to say his goodbyes, may you live elsewhere in PE-ACE.

I am heartbroken to hear of the loss of Scott. I am sending prayers for the family and hoping that memories of wonderful times with Scott will sustain you in this difficult time and forever.





      “Give me a problem and I’ll hand you a solution.” Those who knew Scott Crabtree would agree that that motto accurately described him. Scott was a man of great drive and a very original, independent thinker. For Scott, no challenge was impossible, and just about any desired result was within his grasp. Scott placed great trust in his intuition. Since that intuition generally led him in the right direction, who was he to doubt it.

      Scott was born on January 7, 1977 at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska. He was the son of Karla Page and William Crabtree, Jr. his childhood found him in Alaska and Texas where he matured into the independent person he eventually became.

      Scott grew up with five siblings. He had two sisters, Kim and Kelly and three brothers, Stephen, Josh and Jere. Scott could be seen as being stubborn by his siblings. It was important to him that he was perceived as “right” when it came to his part in those typical family spats. However, this quality did not over power his caring for his family. This ability to balance his family, with his need to be seen as right, helped him to develop into a young adult while enjoying many good times with his family.

      During his grade school years, Scott was a very focused and serious student who actually enjoyed the challenge of many classroom problems. He was determined to succeed, and he drew upon his gifts of trust and perseverance to provide him with a competitive edge. While his first love might have been academics, Scott took part in basketball and football. He was a member of 4-H and cub scouts. Scott delighted in projects that required planning, critical thinking and resolution. Scott's memorable achievements included playing Groucho Marx.

      During high school, Scott was relentless in his pursuit of learning, especially in those subject areas that really grabbed hold of his interests. It wasn't that he didn't put forth his best efforts in all classes, but if a subject really interested him, he would eagerly put forth extra effort to learn all he could. Scott graduated from Lewisville High School in Obtained his GED in 1996. His favorite class in high school was Lunch.

      Scott was loyal to his friends. He found that he was most in tune with people who had similar interests and thought about things much the way that he did. Scott sometimes had a tendency to be critical in his friendships but he was more interested in finding out what was right in a situation rather than in being mean toward others. He never intentionally set out to hurt any of his friends. Scott was a person who challenged others to fend for themselves and to be original in their thinking and evaluation of the outside world. While growing up, some of his best friends were Mikey Haugen, Krystal Patterson and Andy Davidson. Later in life, he became friends with Julie and Art Gonzales, Eric Smith, Sraida Rocha Miller, and Michael and Deborah Sanders.

      Scott often neglected his own feelings in order to give to others. This was very true when it came to how he dealt with his children. He was able to hand on to each child a number of strong values. He taught them to appreciate their abilities, gave them a desire to persevere despite obstacles and set within them a drive to succeed. He had two children, one son, Caleb and one daughter, Cadance. He also had one grandchild, Noah. They were always aware of how much Scott loved them.

      During Scott's professional working years, he was at his best when working independently. It became the hallmark of his performance. Scott was generally able to refocus his drive and determination and readily work toward finding a way to get things done that was beneficial to himself and his co-workers. His primary occupation was Business Account Representative. He was employed for 22 years by GTE/Verizon/Frontier Communications Companies and 2 years at Western Beverage .

      For Scott, his outside interests and hobbies became another exercise in learning and mastering areas that interested him. He greatly enjoyed unraveling the "hows" and "whys" that lay behind his hobbies. Scott was always pushing himself to learn more and to stretch his knowledge base even further. He firmly believed that the more things that he knew the more control he would have over things. His favorite pursuits were reading especially Stephen King, video games, puzzles, anything with his children and grandchildren, wathcing movies and playing 3-13 card game with his mom and siblings and "words with friends" with his mom.

      Watching his favorite sporting events by himself was never a problem for Scott. It allowed him to indulge in his own individual interpretation of the event. It was not uncommon for Scott to know what the right play or move “should have been,” and he would vocally address these feelings even if there was no one around to hear them. And if there were others around, he would still state his feelings and gladly debate anyone on their opposing views. In high school, Scott played basketball and football. Recreational sports included jogging and wanted to learn how to golf. He enjoyed following his favorite sporting events. Tops on his list were football and wrestiling.

      Scott's skepticism was visible when he found it necessary to place too much trust in one person. This was never clearer than when it was time for him to schedule a vacation or period of time away from his regular schedule. Scott loved the research aspects of planning a trip, but the actual process of relaxing was far more difficult. Still, he did manage to enjoy some time away. Favorite vacations involved people not place, primarily his children.

      Scott was a lover of animals and cherished his pets. One of Scott's favorites was Flash, a pug. They were best friends for 1 year.

      Scott Crabtree passed away on May 17, 2020 at at home in San Angelo, Texas. Asphyxiation by choking on food. He is survived by his children Caleb and Cadance; his grandson Noah; his brothers Stephen, Josh and Jere; sisters Kim and Kelly; his mother Karla Page and his dad William Crabtree, Jr. Services were held at johnson's Funeral Home. Scott was cremated.

      Scott Crabtree was always drawn to what was measurable, practical and factual. He was a very competent person who expected competence from others. He could be headstrong and certain about the way things were supposed to be. He was determined in every aspect of his life and certain that he was usually right about things. He trusted his intuition over all else, even if it opposed the popular belief, and he had faith in his inner vision and speculations. He wanted to be acknowledged by others as having made a contribution to whatever he was working on. His family and friends will miss his fierce determination, relentless innovations and analytic mind. He leaves with all those who knew him many wonderful memories.
