Scott Allen Jennings

June 12, 1974-Nov. 17, 2014

Scott Allen Jennings was born in Seattle but grew up in Forks. He was adopted by Chuck and Patsy Jennings at 2 weeks old.

He attended school in Forks and graduated in June 1989 from Forks High School. He loved working in mills, starting at Allen’s Mill near Forks after he graduated.

He worked in Port Angeles at K-Ply and Pen-Ply and then worked at Interfor until he had a major heart attack on March 28, 2014. He was taken by ambulance to Bremerton at Harrison Hospital and then flown to University of Seattle Medical Center, were he had a three-way bypass and six stents put in.

He was very loved his whole life; first by Chuck and Patsy, and family; and also by his many friends. He had a great sense of humor and he loved sports; especially the Raiders football team!

He met Mahala Hayworth in Forks and then several years later in Port Angeles and she was the love of his life! They were so happy together and they married on June 14, 2014.

Six days later they moved to California, to be close to Mahala’s sisters Jessica and Sabrina and family.

His heart was never strong after the heart attack, only functioning at 23 percent and then 15 percent later. He died at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, Calif., with Mahala, her sister Jessica, Chuck and Patsy by his side.

Mahala had spent over two months with him, sleeping in his room at the hospital, and caring for him day and night. He went in with an infection in his leg, that weakened his heart.

He was a fighter and he was determined to get a heart transplant to be able to go home and live the rest of his life with Mahala, Bella (daughter), two sons, Steven and Joseph, and family. But he never got the heart transplant.

A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
