Scott Allen Waggoner, 51, went to be with God on June 5, 2018.
Scott lived most of his life in Pendleton, Ore. He attended Pendleton High School and graduated from Blue Mountain Community College.
Love of the mountains led him to seek a logging career with Wildwood Transport. Moving from that, he was self-employed as a master mobile mechanic, hired by Caterpillar for his advanced knowledge of diesel mechanics. He then took a position with BMCC to be an instructor in the diesel program and continued there until his death.
Scott’s hobbies included his passion for drag racing, which he shared with his daughter. Mentored by her father, she earned many trophies and awards, a feat that made Scott very proud. Hunting and fishing were also his interests.
Scott leaves his wife Sunny of 26 years, his daughter Natalie, 18, and his father Robert Waggoner and wife Becca of Milton-Freewater. His mother, Susan Laird, preceded him in death.
A Celebration of Life will be held at BMCC on June 23 at 11 a.m. The public is welcome.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the BMCC diesel program for scholarships in Scott’s name.
