Timothy Scott Van Haren (Scotty), 63, passed away on December 29, 2021, at his home in Queen Creek Arizona.
Scotty was born on January 3, 1958, in San Manuel Arizona to Wilford and Lois Van Haren. He was the 4th of 7 children.
Scotty loved the cowboy life. At a young age he started riding sheep, then moved on to steers and eventually moved on to riding bulls. He did this for many years on Turquoise Rodeo Circuit. He also loved being outdoors, whether it was fishing, hunting, or camping, he loved it all and would never pass up a chance to go. Scotty worked for BBP Concrete in Phoenix for 20 years prior to starting his own pool cleaning business. He was a hard worker and passed that trait on to his family by example.
He is survived by his son Tyler (David)Van Haren; stepchildren Andrea (Jared) Rogers, Cody Holladay, Mindy (Aaron) Caldwell, 11grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren; his brothers and sisters, John (Linda) Van Haren, Vicki (Dusty) Wold, Tommy (Stacy) Van Haren, Todd Van Haren, Amy Taylor.
He is preceded in death by his Father and Mother and his brother Morty.
