Scott Clinton Baggs passed away March 5, 2021. Born December 23, 1960, outside of Jacksonville, Florida, he was the son of a U.S. Naval officer, and lived in several states as a youth. Scott graduated from high school at Sheldon Academy, near Beaufort, SC. He studied at the College of Charleston, and ultimately earned Bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Engineering Science from Colorado State University. Scott subsequently worked at Hewlett Packard for many years.
Scott loved music. He began playing drums at age 8, and expanded his talent to become an awesome rock and roll guitarist. He and his brother established their first band, The Flying Mice, in 1973. After moving to Ft. Collins, Scott played lead guitar for the regional band On Q, and other hard rock bands. Some bands that made an influence on Scott’s life were the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Johnny Winter, and Amos Moses.
Scott is survived by his mother Barbara Baggs of Ft. Collins, his brothers David Moody (Louise) of Virginia and Ellis Baggs (Cheryl) of Virginia, and sisters Karen Frary (Joe) of Colorado and Diane Belak (James) of California. He was preceded in death by his father, Cmdr. Charles Baggs, Ret., and his sister, Susan Wedeman of Florida. Scott is also survived by 12 nieces and nephews and many cousins. We will miss him and his wonderful sense of humor.
