November 7, 1968 – October 16, 2017
Scott Christopher Maier passed away from a 2.5 year battle with lung cancer, Monday, October 16, 2017, just three weeks shy of his 49th birthday.
He was dedicated to his partner, family and friends. Scott is survived by his soul mate and best friend, Trace Symonds, his four fur-babies, Duke, Alvin, Ricky and Lucy; His amazing Dad and “Step-in” Mom, John and Sheryl Maier of Anderson, Indiana as well as a family in Indiana and lots of friends both in Dallas and Anderson. He was preceded in death by his mother, Judith Maier in 2012. He cared intently for his mother in her last years before she passed from Alzheimer’s.
Growing up in Anderson, Indiana, Scott attended Park Place Church of God and the St. Ambrose School. He graduated from Highland High School in 1987. Scott’s alter ego, “Dusty the Clown” would make appearances with the Anderson Clown Group. He moved to Dallas shortly after graduation.
Scott was sweet and thoughtful, caring and fun, silly and stubborn. He loved parties and had a flare for decorating, baking, remodeling and gardening. He loved to make others happy, at any expense. He was an amazing doggy daddy and dog trainer for Top Dog Dallas, in Garland.
In Dallas, Scott interacted with many organizations. He was an active member of the White Rock Community Church, the Spectrum Motorcycle Club, volunteered with the Guys and Dolls civic fundraising group that benefitted Lifewalk and with the Alzheimer's Foundation. You may have seen him walking in support of one of these organizations, on his motorcycle in the Pride parade, or at the back bar at Zippers.
He leaves a legacy of love, peace and acceptance with us all. No ‘funeral’ or ‘memorial’ services will be held per his request. In lieu of flowers, Scott asked that you make a donation to the PAN Foundation (panfoundation.org) as this organization helped him pay for chemo.
Scott was to turn 49 on November 7, so he didn’t say we couldn’t throw a Scott-Style, over-the-top Birthday Party! So, we are going to have a birthday party on Saturday, November 11 starting at 12:00 noon.
If you were close to Scott and would like to attend please RSVP to Laura Doscher for more information.
