Scot Ryan Bartling, 49, of Casper, Wyoming passed away Monday, May 30, 2022. Scot was born on April 26, 1973 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska to Donal and Donelle Bartling. Scot was the proud father of six children and a grandfather to two grandchildren who were his pride and joy.
Scot was an avid outdoor enthusiast who loved dirt biking, camping, and racing his RC cars. If it had a motor, you would always catch Scot near it or fixing it. He loved figuring out how to make things work. As a Master Mechanic he always appreciated anything mechanically challenging.
Scot was raised in Dalton, Nebraska where he attended the Leyton Public Schools until the tenth grade. He then transferred to Lovell, Wyoming where he graduated from Lovell High School in 1991. After graduation, he moved to Laramie and attended WyoTech where he became a Master Certified Mechanic. After trade school, he then moved back to Lovell where he married his first wife, Julie Harvey, and together they had three children, Kaia, Ryan, and Heather. Scot built up his skill set as a mechanic working for Jon Marchant Motors where he later became a manager. On his days off, Scot spent time teaching his kids to ride motorcycles, camp, and enjoy the outdoors.
Later he reunited with and married Amy York, and together they had a child, Beau, adding to the two children Amy brought to the union, Austin and Alyssa. Together the family moved to Casper in 2004 where they have lived since. He opened Scot's Mobile Repair business and worked with Schwans as an independent mechanic. During many summers, Scot would take Amy and the kids in “Big Mama”, their motor home, to his hometown back in Nebraska where four generations of Bartling’s were there to welcome them. Scot and his family also spent time out at Poison Spider ATV Park teaching the kids how to ride dirtbikes, fourwheelers, and do cookies in the parking lot. Scot and Amy spent a week every year in Las Vegas attending shows, eating good food, and gambling. In March of 2021, Scot and Amy traveled to Cancun where they renewed their wedding vows after 15 wonderful years of marriage.
In 2019 he took on the role of "Papa" when his granddaughter, Lilliana Grace, arrived. Soon after in 2021 his grandson, Lukas Scot, was born. Scot spent his free time helping look after and taking care of his grandchildren. There was nothing he loved more than seeing his babies. They were truly the apple of Scot's eye.
Scot was preceded in death by his mother, Donelle Lowham.
