Scott Ivers

May 16, 1952 ~ August 15, 2022 (age 70)

Tribute

Jeffery Scott Ivers, age 70, of Austin, Texas passed away in his home surrounded by his family on August 15. Scott lived life to the fullest. He was larger than life and filled a room with his contagious energy. Strangers were always friends. He had the natural talent and personality to make friends no matter the situation, with a wide grin and a mischievous sparkle in his eyes. He was 10 days shy of his 34th anniversary of sobriety. He worked hard to build a life and a family full of love, laughter and great food.

Scott was born in Beaumont, Texas on May 16, 1952, and grew up in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. Following the death of his parents in 1961, he moved back to Beaumont and was adopted by his aunt and uncle, Harriott and James Ivers. Scott was a 1970 graduate of Beaumont High School where he was the quarterback of the football team and served as Vice President of his class. He attended the University of Oklahoma, and graduated from Lamar University in 1974.

Scott spent his entire career in petrochemical sales, working in Houston and Huntington Beach, California before ultimately spending the bulk of his career working for Rawson Inc., in Beaumont and then in the Austin office. In his lifelong career, he earned the friendship and respect of everyone he worked with and will be remembered as a mentor to many and a friend to all.

Scott was a constant presence in his kids' lives, who absolutely adored him. Not only was he the most loving and involved parent, he was also their best friend and mentor. When his children were young, he loved being active in all aspects of their lives; spending countless hours volunteering as his son’s basketball coach and as a softball umpire at West End Little League in Beaumont, where his daughter played. In addition, Scott was an amazing chef who loved to cook and entertain friends on a regular basis.  He was an avid golfer for most of his life and had fond memories playing at the Beaumont Country Club.

Everyone would agree that his wife, Dana Ivers, was the absolute love of his life. They had their first date in 1998 and were married in 2010. They enjoyed traveling, entertaining friends, racing each other to complete the daily sudoku puzzle, playing Canasta and laughing together. They were a true match, balancing each other's quirks and having a ton of fun along the way!

He is survived by his wife, Dana Ivers, of Austin, Texas, his children, Lauren and Trystin Hoehne, Scott and Virginia Ivers, Jill and Max Buja, and Jaime and Patrick Coffey, all of Houston, Texas. He is also survived by his grandchildren Madeleine Hoehne, Preston Hoehne, Caroline Buja, Ellen Buja, Walter Coffey, and Harry Coffey, all of Houston, Texas.

He is survived by his siblings Julie and Henk Bouhuys of Charlotte, NC, Helen and Alan Henkel of Kingsland, TX, and Jim Ivers. He is also survived by various nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Harriott Ivers, and Richard and Grace Ivers, as well as his siblings Rick Ivers, Kent Goza, Christine Ivers, and Willian Markus.
