Doug Scott, who served as mayor of Cherry Hills Village from 2002 to 2006, died unexpectedly last week and memorial services were held June 14 in Highlands Ranch. Born in Memphis in 1964, he was already a world traveler when he moved to the metro Denver area in 1989.
Scott was a senior vice president with Shea Properties Colorado. He not only served two terms as mayor of Cherry Hills Village, but was on the board of trustees of ColoTrust, and served on the board of directors of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.
He was active in water rights and use issues and served on the Inter Basin Compact Committee, among multiple other board and service positions. A voracious reader with a zest for life, Scott loved to travel, and had a passion for movies. Friends say that he had a golf swing that was so elegant it caused people near him to stop and watch.
He is survived by his wife Janice, daughter Lori (21), son Bennett (15) and brothers Alan and David. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the family will be sent to the charity Water.org in his memory.
