He attended and graduated from Iola High School in 1984 and then enrolled in Henderson County Junior College, where he played basketball and earned his associate degree. He went on to play basketball for Stephen F. Austin University for a year before transferring to Sam Houston State University, where he would obtain his degree in animal science. He met and married the love of his life, Dedra Anne Picou on January 21, 1995 and together they had three children. Scot followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather and became a third generation cattle rancher, supporting his family by doing what he loved. He also partnered in a rodeo company, Apache Rodeo Co., until buying out his partner and renaming it to Scot Nevill Rodeo Company. Scot was a true, devoted family man. He was hands on and dedicated to providing for his family and supporting them in every endeavor. He faithfully attended every school or sport function they participated in, offering his love, encouragement and support in everything they did. A strong, silent man, Scot was a man of few words but strong convictions. He was kind, patient and honest and offered sound advice to those closest to him. He was a hard worker and steadfast provider for his family. His entire life was centered and dedicated to them. Each year, Scot, Dedra and the children vacationed in Florida. He loved the beach, and for over 20 consecutive years, he relaxed and would unwind, just soaking up the sun and joy being surrounded by those he loved most. Many, many family memories are centered around those annual vacations. Scot was also active in things close to his heart and community. He served on the school board for Iola Independent School District and was in his second term as vice-president. He was also serving his second term on the Grimes County Appraisal Board and the Brazos/Grimes/Walker and Burleson County FSA Board. Left to cherish his legacy and memory are his wife, Dedra Anne Nevill; son and fiance Will Nevill and Logan Choiniere; daughters Tatum and Taylor Nevill; parents Joyce and William Nevill; sister and brother-in-law Jo Lyn and Jed Haby; mother-in-law and father-in-law Jan and Thomas Picou and; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Lillian and Tom Picou; sister-in-law Karen Picou; brother-in-law Vincent Picou and many that he was proud and honored to call his friends.
