Scott Lynn Endres, age 48 of Stuttgart, gained his angel wings on October 1, 2016. He was born on November 13, 1967 to Roland and Lynette Endres of Stuttgart. He was a loving and caring son, father, medic, friend, teacher and colleague.
Scott was a 1986 graduate of Stuttgart High School. After graduating, he chose a field to help others, which was his passion. He did this in so many ways. He was a member of the Governor’s advisory council EMS training committee, AR Paramedic Society, and International Association of Flight Paramedics.
He was on the Board of Directors of National Association of EMS Educators, coordinator for the South Central AR Infant/Child review, the Chairman for the Arkansas EMS Training Committee’s Best Practice and Critical Care sub-committee. He was the current president of AR EMS instructor society, co-chair for the AR EMS symposium, and currently directing the AR Trauma System Educational Video. He was an AR licensed Paramedic, and Adjunct Instructor for EMS program at National Park, and Critical Care EMT Paramedic. He was also an ACLS/PALS/BLS instructor, and a nationally known speaker and educator.
Leaving behind years of med-flight, he began work for Survival Flight 7 in Russellville, AR as a flight medic.
His love of helping others was second, only to the love he had for his family, especially his children, Ashley and Hunter, and his parents and sister. His job might have kept him busy but he was very involved with his children and family. He was proudly anticipating walking his daughter down the aisle in November. He and his son enjoyed camping and looked forward to their next “no electric” camp out. They also shared a loved of movies and sports activities.
Scott was preceded in death by his sister, Sonya Endres; and his grandparents, Fred and Beulah Endres and Ottis and Nell Rogers.
He is survived by his parents, daughter Ashley (Jordan) and son, Hunter, all of Stuttgart, numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephew and cousins; and, of course, his extended EMS family.
