Scott Weston Bayles, 71, died peacefully at his residence with family by his side July 27, 2016.
He was born November 16, 1944 in Moab, UT a son of Scott Lyman and Delores Isabelle (Gravelle) Bayles.
While growing up in Utah, he enjoyed hunting, four wheeling, being out on the range, and doing cattle drives.
Scott was an accomplished athlete at San Juan High School in Blanding, UT, graduating in the class of 1963.
He enlisted in US Navy following graduation and proudly served his country for 30 years, retiring on August 5, 1993.
He founded Bayles Tours and Charter Bus Service and spent the next 25 years enjoying the many trips chartered and loved to joke, tease and talk with all his clients, especially the senior citizens.
His greatest love and joy in his life was his family. He met Vickie while he was stationed at Brunswick Naval Air Station in 1985, and they were married in 1987.
Scott was a kind, generous and supportive figure to his family.
His words of encouragement or his sense of humor (and his laugh) would brighten anyone’s day, and he would always add “Can’t we all just get along”.
