He enjoyed the outdoors and spending time at the beach and mountains. Scott fought and cheated cancer. He was known as a “hero” and a “miracle” to many that knew of his conquering the battle.
He is survived by his devoted wife of 27 years, Yvonne Smith, his loving daughter, Alexa Smith-Surrett, his father and mother, John and Carolyn (Skaggs) Surrett, his niece, Brittany Smith, as well as several cousins, aunts and uncles.

My best wishes to Scott and his family. I met Scott as a ninth grader at Douglas Byrd . He quickly became one of my best friends. Scott's parents were very kind to me. I was so lucky to have met Scott and his parents. Scott later became a husband and a father. I know how special that was to him. He was great at being a husband and a father. For those that called you friend, son, father, husband, we are very lucky to have been able to call you those words. Rest in peace my friend.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Please allow this comforting scripture in the Bible to provide you with peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Revelation 21:3-4 - “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

The loss of a loved one can be devastating without the support of family and friends. The greatest support we can receive comes from the Creator. He too is deeply sadden by the death of any human. The sadness result from knowing that we die due to inherited sin from the first man Adam that leads to sickness and death. Lovingly God has made a provision to get rid of sickness and death. He also has stated that his will is to undo the pain and suffering that death brings. This will be accomplished by what Jesus spoke of at John 6:40. There he said: "this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life and I will resurrect him on the last day." By means of the resurrection the tears of sadness will become tears of joy as those asleep in death will be awaken and reunited with their loved ones on a cleansed earth. God's original purpose for the earth and mankind will be a reality. May this wonderful prospect for the future provide comfort and give strength to the family.
