Scott worked with his father at High Plains Petroleum Corporation and was the Vice President from 1998 to the time of his passing.

Scott enjoyed being outdoors. He loved hiking, skiing, biking, playing soccer, volleyball, and relaxing at the beach. He loved to spend time laughing with his friends and family. He loved his collie dogs and his newest puppy, “Rowdy”. He was a very loving, kind, and fun person who cared very deeply for his friends and family. Scott was a caring son, big brother, and uncle. We will all miss him a great deal.

Scott was a great brother-in-law and uncle. Always had a smile on his face and was willing to help anyone in need. Genuinely a good person that loved the Colorado outdoors. He will be deeply missed and is gone too soon. 2 Timothy 4:7-8 "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing."
A great friend from high school on. We used to play soccer in the summer time and go to movies and bar hop .he will be greatly missed by me and my family.
Scott Somers ran like the wind down the soccer pitch. He was nowhere and everywhere passing the ball, defending, attacking. He was a formidable force, someone you’d want on your side. That’s how we met in 1979 on Mrs. Harmon’s soccer team. He was sweet, harmless, conservative yet open minded, lovable & affectionate. We talked regularly and his last piece of advise to me in late February 2022 was what places to visit around Santa Fe. Scott knew things most of us have no clue about like the names of wild flowers, trees, rocks, and the history of places. He played the guitar and knew songs I always wished I knew. Real American songs that make you sound like you’re from here. He had a warm heart and loved to discover new places. We went to the Jersey shore on his trips to the East coast and he loved picking up little rocks from the beach and he’d tell you all about where it came from. I miss you Scott.
