Obituary of Scott Crosby

Please share a memory of Scott to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Scott Eugene Crosby died at home in Shelton WA peacefully on Easter morning, March 31, 2024 at 1:44 A.M. with his loving wife Robin by his side. He was 71 years old and survived a courageous three year battle with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. He was born on December 10, 1952 to Bette Louise (Toal) Crosby and Warren Eugene Crosby in Centralia WA. He grew up in and around the Olympia area. He attended college in Washington before spending time in Idaho, Oregon and finally having a career as a System Operator for an electrical utility, NCPA, Roseville CA. After retirement Scott and his wife, Robin moved back to his home state and designed and built their dream house, a 1930’s style craftsman bungalow on Island Lake in Shelton. Scott was gifted flying lessons as a High School graduation gift and his love of flying begun. But along with that he found he also loved restoring antique aircraft. One of Scott’s greatest accomplishments was building an exact replica of a Gee Bee Model E racing plane originally built by the Granville Brothers in the 1930’s. That airplane is now sitting under the wing of the Spruce Goose at Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, OR. He was a craftsman through and through....just give him an airplane, boat, car or motorcycle to restore and he would turn it into a beauty. He loved the Puget Sound and spent many summer days as a kid at his grandmother’s, Maude Dorman Crosby’s Hood Canal vacation home. That area always remained one of his favorite spots. He loved our lake and the birds and wildlife. Some of his favorite days were spent on our porch drinking margaritas, watching the sun go down over Island Lake. He leaves behind his wife of 33 years and one daughter, Alexandra Louise Crosby and three step-daughters, Jennifer Bonique Martin, Kari Anne Steeves and Kelly Lynn McGinnis, along with 9 grandchildren. He also leaves behind his sister, Virginia Louise Sims and brother, John Crosby. Scott reconnected with many dear High School friends since returning to the Olympia/Shelton area. The time spent reminiscing about their antics and stories of long ago was a blessing to him. The memories made past and present will never be forgotten. You are so missed, Scott. You gave it your all and are so loved.
