After a valiant 18-month battle with pancreatic cancer, Scott Richard Novasio passed away December 28th in his home surrounded by his family. Scott was born in Billings, Montana on September 8, 1947 (or ’46 depending on who you believe) to Richard John and Doris Mae (Evans) Novasio. The family moved frequently during his childhood and Scott attended many different schools in several states. The Novasio clan was a large extended family and Scott was close with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, especially Bob and Monte Patterson. His grandmother Viola or “Nana” always had a very special place in his heart. He graduated from Powell High School in 1965. After graduation, Scott volunteered for the United States Army. He served honorably with the First Air Calvary and spent parts of 1967 and ’68 in Viet Nam. Upon returning from the war he worked on the construction of the Chief Joseph Highway and later operated a bar and pizzeria in Red Lodge. Often known by his alias “Skeeterman” he was the life of every party; leaving those who met him with an amusing story and some valuable advice.

On April 4, 1973 Scott married the love of his life Suzie (Vicky Underwood) in Las Vegas. From that point forward, his world revolved around his family. First his three children: Tobin (Tandi) Novasio, Tonya (Cody) Barent, and Lyndsey (Tim) Bachmeier and more importantly his grandchildren: Bentley, Beckam, Brystin and Bowie-Bleu Bachmeier; Braxton, Korbyn, Emersyn and Riverlynn Barent; Kane and Kyson Hickes, and Addison Novasio. “Uncle Scott” was also very close with his numerous nieces, nephews, and many of his children’s friends. Scott always watched out for his younger brother Gregg and his niece Sarah was like a third daughter. It was important to him that he was able to spend the Christmas holiday with all of his family gathered.

Scott and Suzie spent much of their life together in the Red Lodge and Laurel areas, opening several successful businesses. His work ethic was legendary and he was extremely independent as he worked primarily for himself in the construction field. Dad or “Papa” was a regular at “his kids” events but his preference would always have been to spend his time in the mountains on horseback far away from civilization. Scott often claimed he didn’t like people but always loved social gatherings; he especially enjoyed returning to Powell for class reunions so everyone could see how good he still looked. Scott talked tough but truly had a soft heart; over the years he and Suszy became the caretakers for many animals, usually those injured or abandoned by others.

Both his parents preceded Scott in death, as did his older sister Dixie Shade, his close nephew Jeremiah Henry, and his infant grandchildren Chael Novasio and Bleu Bachmeier. At his request, the family has decided not to have a service but rather will have a celebration of Scott’s life at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to: B.A.R.K (Billings Animal Rescue Kare), 4017 1st Ave. S, Billings MT 59101

He lived, he loved, and he was a straight shooter.
