John Scott Weems, DVM. “Scott” died peacefully in his home, surrounded by his wife and children on Oct 14, 2016, at the age of 59. Scott is survived by his wife, Wendy Weems, children Jardon and Brenna Weems, mother, Mary “Penny” DeShazo Weems, favorite sister Marian L’Huillier(daughters, Laura and Erin), and favorite sister Carol Weems Lind (Dan). He was proceeded in death by his father Jardon “Jay” Newman Weems.
Scott was born June 27th, 1957 in El Paso, TX. He graduated from Burges High School in 1975. He attended Texas A&M University, graduating in 1981 from the college of Veterinary Medicine.
Scott first began practicing veterinary medicine in Las Vegas, NM. Moving on to Colorado and eventually opening Weems & Stephens Equine Hospital in 1984 in Aubrey, TX.
While attending a veterinary meeting in Oregon, he discovered the city of Sisters. He then decided to move his family here in 2006. Before setting up practice in Sisters he took a temporary breeding season job in New Zealand. Scott Weems, DVM Equine Medicine and Surgery began offering ambulatory service through central Oregon in the spring 2007. The practice quickly grew into Sisters Equine, opening the clinic doors in the fall of 2013. Knowing his career choice from the young age of 6, Scott was often heard saying he wished he was just graduating college so he could do it all again.
In addition to his passion for veterinary medicine he was also an active member of the aviation community, flying into the back country of Idaho or just around his home on a beautiful morning. Scott also enjoyed riding cutting horses, fly fishing and hunting.
He was a loving father and husband. His face would light up with just the mention of his children, always striving to instill honesty and integrity in their lives the same way his father did with him.
If you knew Scott, you knew Wendy was the love of his life. They would often be seen together dancing at local festivals, supporting the children at school events and volunteering for the Sisters Rodeo Association. They were always together.
Scott was an active and dedicated member of Shiloh Ranch Cowboy Church and their 10:17 cattle project was near and dear to his heart. The family would like to thank all of the people who have shown love and support during this difficult time.
A celebration of life is scheduled at 2pm on Oct 30th, 2016 at 15699 SW Bussett Rd., Powell Butte, OR 97753. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Scott’s life.
