Scott D. Reeves

Scott D. Reeves

June 4, 1952-October 31, 2023

Scott grew up in Fremont, NE, and graduated from Fremont High School in 1970.  He moved to Omaha to start his career in heavy equipment at Kiewit, then Forst Machinery which took him to travels in South Africa, of which he spoke often.  Scott then worked in fiberglass truck parts at Fibertec. In 2004 had his own business, TRP, which made him so proud.  Recently his “retirement” job was at Dentcrafters, where he drove cars, managed parts, and enjoyed meeting and talking to people.

Scott had many friends. He was always up for a beer and loved a good conversation.  He enjoyed spending time with family.  Scott enjoyed boating on the river. The purchase of his first boat led to meeting a Personal Banker named Diane Rybisky at Firstier Bank, who demanded a collateral inspection.  Scott complied, and that was the beginning of their time together.

In May of 1990, he married Diane and began a life of love, travel, and fun.  Scott and Diane traveled often to Saint Martin, his favorite place on earth.

Scott enjoyed sports and was long time suffering Husker football fan. He loved getting together with friends to watch games.

Scott loved news, politics, and current events. He loved reading the Wall Street Journal which he referred to as his “college education.”  He could be found reading a good book by Michael Connelly and David Baldacci.  Often, every television and radio were on to either sports or Fox News at home.   He was a fan of Van Morrison, the Beatles, and any good classic rock group.

Scott was a kind, caring, and thoughtful man.   He cared deeply for people, always had a cheery hello, and never met a stranger, as he was outgoing and always friendly.   He was a good listener and knew everyone’s story. He had a sweet smile that he shared with many.   He loved talking about Kiewit, telling crazy stories about time with friends in Fremont, and talking about anything with anyone.

His cherished title was that of “husband” and he loved Diane deeply.  Scott and Diane were always together and enjoyed life together.   Scott loved spending time at home with Diane on the deck with a cocktail, grilling out, while enjoying the antics of one of three dogs he loved.  Scott’s latest four-legged love was Rubee who woke him up every morning with wet kisses.   He loved holidays, his favorite being Thanksgiving, as it involved food and football. He loved Christmas and insisted every year that a tree be put up. Scott always gave Diane thoughtful, special gifts at Christmas.

Scott was determined and strong and remained that way throughout his health challenges. When he could not overcome them any longer, he peacefully passed to his beach vacation in heaven.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Jim and Roberta “Bobbie” Reeves; and father and mother-in-law, Ron and Marty Rybisky.   He is survived by his wife, Diane; brothers and sisters-in-laws, Mike (Michele) Reeves, Ron (Rita) Reeves, Chris (Sandy) Brazeal, John (Tracey) Calsada; all of his many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncle, and cousins.

Scott will be missed by Diane and everyone who knew and loved him.  He was a special man, and the world is a different place without him.

    There are simply no words. Scott was such a lovely man. We enjoyed calling him family after our daughter married his nephew. He was always around to help and support us. He was a staple of fun and conversation. I will miss our HUSKER Football connection. I’m so hoping the Huskers get to the bowl game for him this year. We will miss you so much, Scott. Diane, we are sending all love and prayers your way.

    Scott will always be remembered for his interesting travel stories, and strong work ethic. We will always remember boating up the Missouri on the day of the O.J. Simpson slow speed chase, Vacationing in the Ozarks, and Friday Afternoon Stress Management meetings. Scott will be dearly missed by all his many many friends. Rest in Peace dear friend.

    Dearest Diane, our arms embrace you and your family in these times of heartache. I’m so grateful that I was able to meet Scott and spend a bit of time with you both during my travel to Omaha. Our conversations of music, favorite bands and concerts are fresh in my mind.
    Hold on to those memories and good times at the beach!

    The news of Scotts passing was difficult to take but we know he is now at peace. He was a one of a kind friend and we are so grateful that we had the opportunity to spend part of our lives here on earth traveling, golfing, hunting, boating & many more with him. The memories and laughs are countless, his love of life and many friends was his gift. There is and will always only be one “Scotty”. We’ll miss him dearly!!! Thoughts and Prayers for all who new and loved him.
