He was born June 10, 1955 to Shirley Randall and Dan Sommers.  He was raised in Morgan and graduated from Morgan High School and Weber State College.

Scott served an LDS Mission in Dallas, Texas.  He married Pamela Nelson on April 1, 1989.  The marriage was later solemnized in the Ogden LDS Temple.  They were later divorced.

The light of their life was their daughter Shantry Reese Sommers.

While in high school he played many sports and received the 1973 Standard Examiner Athletic Award. He later coached football and baseball and taught mathematics at San Juan, North Summit and Morgan High Schools.  He touched many lives both in and out of the classroom.
