Raymond “Scotty” Sweet was born in Houston, Texas on July 29, 1976 to Stanley Sweet, who later became his friend and confidant and Sue Parker, who he honored until he entered Heaven’s Gate on September 5, 2017, at the age of 41. He had a massive heart, ALWAYS putting his family and friends first. He was an Avid Fishermen, Expert Welding Inspector with several API certifications to his name, Master Mason, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, and an all-around, good guy who was led by his big heart and easy-going soul.
Scott is preceded by a grandchild and a best friend and mentor, Billy Webb.
Scott is survived by:
The love of his life, Dorothy. They were high school sweethearts that got a second chance at love. Their love story began as teenagers with Scotty secretly leaving flowers for Dorothy behind her Grandma’s car each week for her to find, and later as a loving husband sending weekly flower and plant deliveries for her until the end. They got “Tangled Up” in love with each other. They enjoyed family, friends, nature, travel, and live music, especially attending every Aaron Lewis concert they could possibly make it to!
His handsome and kind-hearted son, Seth Alexander McMahon; they enjoyed time together exploring, playing video games, fishing and recently getting into jet skiing.
His beautiful daughter, Brittney Catherine Sweet-Wagner, who he cherished and always had time to help her with finding a bargain, fishing tips, googling car repairs and the trials of life. His faithful son-in-law, Mathew Wagner, and his precious granddaughter Zoe Mychelle, the apple of his eye.
His daughter, Kamryn Machelle Koronka, that he held dearly in his heart.
His brother, friend and fishing buddy, Shane Stebert. His strong and smart nephew, Robert “Bo” Shane Stebert Jr., and loving niece, Amber “Jac” Jaclyn Stebert.
One of his longest and best friends, his daughter, Brittney’s mother, Kelly Timms; and his brothers from another mother, Bryan “Little B” Daniel, Locke Mouton, and Chaz Kuehn and wife, Emiley. He also leaves many friendships that have lasted for as long as a lifetime and as short as a day. Whatever was needed, if you liked it, he LOVED IT and he helped you with it, with great pride and enthusiasm.
We are blessed to have had the opportunity to have been enriched by the miracle of his life.
