Scott Conway | Obituaries | tucson.com
The 56-year-old died at home in Tucson, AZ on May 6, 2021. Scott was a tenacious, naturally brilliant boy who won the hearts of many with his sarcastic remarks and tender heart. Scott was born on August 30, 1964 in Santa Ana, California, to Audrey “Jane” Markham Conway and Noel Grant Conway. Graduated from the University of Arizona, he was a hardworking businessman, proud father, husband, brother, and uncle. Scott was an ambitious hard worker who rose to SVP at Berry Plastics before moving to more volunteer and independent consulting work.
Scott is survived by his father Noel Conway; his two children, Grant William Conway and Samantha Mary Conway; his sisters Jill Marie Conway Graves and Jan Conway Hood; his aunt Patricia Lee Cook; and his nieces and nephews, Alec Michael Hood, Jonathan Thomas “JT” Hood, and Autumn Noelle Hood. He died from his mother, Jane Conway.
We comfort ourselves with the knowledge that Scott is surrounded by light, free from a lifelong struggle that has haunted him. He had a strong Christian faith and is at peace in heaven. We would have given him anything to experience this freedom in this life. Our grief over losing him is infinite. And now he is too.
While his death is heartbreaking, we hope his story will serve as a catalyst for change to provide successful treatment options and reduce the stigma people face when dealing with substance abuse and mental illness. Scott served others in the Caridad Community Kitchen for many years. Accordingly, instead of flowers, donations can be made in Scott’s name to the Caridad Community Kitchen, Tucson, AZ. A memorial service is currently scheduled for Saturday, June 19, 2021 (2:00 p.m.) at the Northminster Presbyterian Church in Tucson, Arizona. Arrangements by BRING’S BROADWAY CHAPEL.
