Scott Donald Boedecker was kind-hearted and generous. His boyish grin, contagious laugh, and passion for people will be sorely missed by all those that knew and loved him. He was one of a kind in a million different ways, and he has touched and enriched the lives of all those he leaves behind. Take care Scotty...we Love you, and will never forget the times we shared, and how you could always make us laugh and smile.

Scott was born on March 31, 1960 in Lyons, NY.

Scott attended Boulder County schools and graduated from Fairview High School in 1979. He attended Eastern State University in Billings Montana, and Front Range Community College in Boulder. He entered The United States Navy in 1988, where he served as an electronics warfare specialist during The Gulf War. He received an Honorable Discharge in 1991. Scott worked for Croc's Footwear, and most recently had been working for a variety of Christian Outreach Ministry Programs throughout Florida. Throughout his life, Scott had been passionate about Music, and was a founding member and bassist for the Boulder-based rock band, "The Feds". He was a talented chef, and on many occasions cooked for large groups of people. Scott enjoyed the outdoors, running, and had a deep love for animals - leaving behind his long-time companion "Tippy", his Dachshund.

A public celebration of his life is being scheduled for June, in Boulder, Colorado. Donations on his behalf can be made to The Anthony H. Kruse Foundation in Boulder Colorado.

Scott was a very good friend of mine; we had many good times and have been friends since we met back 1990 till his last days. The final time we spoke was probably less than a week before his passing away. Scott, God Bless you my friend…you are missed. I pray you found the piece you longed to have. Scott lived for the moment much of the time because he believed nothing in life can be wasted the time and people he knew were precious. Scott and I met in the US Navy onboard the Fast Frigate USS Ouellet (http://www.UssOuellet.com) where we were Electronic Warfare Technicians. Scott confided in me that “he hoped the military could have been a life away from the pressures of being a civilian.” He learned quickly that demons follow you wherever you may go. Scott was outgoing and always stood his ground, especially to his friends, in the military or civilian life he was on your side and always had your back. Scott began contributing to UnRated Magazine because his love for music, he wanted to put his writing talents to the test, unfortunately God needed him for a better plan. The man feared nothing and no one, he took the challenge and whatever he done he succeeded. It did not matter if the goal was small or exceeding millions, working with everyone from the fry cook to a worldwide business executive. Scott touched everyone around the world that I know. He shared his life, emotions, ambitions, as well as the most hidden skeletons in his life. Man I miss you Scott, your friend and I’ll see you again one of these days, your friend Adam Bielawski
