October 07, 1964 - March 07, 2023


Scott Derr, age 58 of Arlington, WA passed away on March 7, 2023.  He now rests peacefully after suffering many complications from a significant stroke.

Scott was born in Seattle, WA to Vernon and Elaine Derr in 1964.  He was raised on a dairy farm in Ferndale, WA and received a BA in Marketing from Washington State University in Spokane in 1987.  He worked in Advertising and Marketing in Seattle upon graduation; owned a mobile coffee stand for a while; and eventually moved into a career in the Nursery Business, where he was able to enjoy his passion of plants and nature for many years.

Scott created a beautiful natural yard at his home of 25 years, loved animals and had many pets during his life, including a peacock (Mr. Peacock) who appeared one day and never left.  He thoroughly enjoyed kayaking, gardening, cookouts with his neighbors, and playing marbles and cards with his parents at most every visit.

Scott is survived by his parents, Vernon and Elaine Derr and his sister Robin Haney.  He is preceded in death by his grandparents Henry and Elizabeth Derr, his grandmother Olga Wofford, and many aunts, uncles and cousins whom he was very close to.  We would like to think he is laughing with them, enjoying Grandma’s pies, Ronnie’s carved watermelon fruit salads, drinking coffee, playing cards and horseshoes like we did at our many large family gatherings growing up.

Scott will be laid to rest at Greenacres Memorial Cemetery next to his grandparents in a private service on Friday, March 24th.  A public Celebration of Life will be held at his parent’s home on Saturday March 25th from 1-4, located at 1675 Matz Road, Ferndale, WA. 98248.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Whatcom Humane Association (Whatcom Humane Society | Caring for Animals since 1902).
