Scott William Spreen, 46, died Sunday, Aug. 3, 2008 in Des Moines, Iowa.

Scott was born in Campinhas, Brazil on July 2, 1962 to William and Irene Spreen. He grew up in Queretaro, Mexico and Hot Springs Village, Ark. Scott's personal, academic and professional lives led him to many other places and his family and friends span across a large horizon.

Scott held a master's of science degree from the University of Arkansas. Most recently Scott worked for the Greater Des Moines Partnership, as director of the Iowa Agribusiness Export Partnership.

Scott's strength and his calm, determined and positive demeanor are just a few of the traits he will be remembered for. A great father, brother, friend and partner was Scott; an all-around good person. He cared deeply, lived fully and carried himself softly in word and manner. He was a citizen of the world.

He is survived by his life partner and best friend Angela DeMirjyn of Des Moines; his children Marc and Tyler Spreen of Rogers, Ark.; his sisters Heidi Clark of Medway, Mass. and Mariel Clark of Nashua, NH; his brothers Steven and George Spreen of Winter Springs and Oviedo, FL.; beloved nieces and nephews, Christina, Jason, Anneliese, Molly, Jacob and Dalton. Many more were touched by him and shared his jelly beans; his memory will live with all.

A gathering for Scott's friends and family will be 5-8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 7, at Iles Funeral Homes - Dunn's Chapel in Des Moines. A brief memorial service will take place at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 9, at St. Augustin Catholic Church, 545 42nd Street, Des Moines, Iowa.
Memorial contributions can be made to the Mercy Foundation, Cancer Support Center at 411 Laurel St., Suite A-110, Des Moines, Iowa, 50314.
