Last updated 3/26/2024 at 11:19am

Scott Armond Brooksby was born August 13, 1962, in Eugene, Oregon to Linda and Gerald Brooksby. He was the eldest of seven children and spent his early years in Minnesota until moving to Portland in 1972 where he spent the remainder of his childhood, graduating from Beaverton High School in 1981. Scott graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA and went on to earn his law degree at The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law in 1994.

While working at law firm Bullivant Houser in Portland, Scott met the love of his life, Kristin Olson, and they were married on September 24, 2005. In 2012, they started the law firm Olson Brooksby. Scott was a distinguished attorney who practiced commercial litigation, personal injury defense, and aviation law. He was recognized as one of the "Best Lawyers in America" from 2018 to the present and named an "Oregon Super Lawyer" from 2008 onward. He published extensively and was invited to speak at various conferences nationwide regarding aviation law and product liability law. Scott also served as legal counsel to prominent companies and advised multiple global religious organizations.

Most of all, Scott loved being a father. He considered his greatest roles in life to be a doting husband to Kristin and a loving father to Gia, age 12, and Bianca, age 10. His girls made him so happy, and he loved watching them enjoy their lives. More than his exceptional professional success, his daughters were his true source of joy and fulfillment. Being with his family was his top priority, and they were his whole world. Scott loved to talk about what his girls were doing and he was so proud of their accomplishments. It was fun to watch him enjoy the magic of their childhood and he was enchanted by their joie de vivre.

Scott was a master gardener, outdoorsman, an avid fisherman, and he enjoyed traveling with his family. He learned from his own father the importance of how to create a truly enjoyable family vacation. Scott made great efforts to provide his girls unique and inspirational experiences so that they could grow and learn about people and the world. Scott was always interested in the lives of people. He was a great listener and was genuinely curious about others. Not only what they were doing, but, more importantly, how they were doing. Not one for the spotlight, he was gifted at illuminating others. Scott was always available to help his family, his parents, and his siblings and their families navigate difficult circumstances and hard times. He was their source of counsel and comfort. When asked by his sisters recently for the best advice he could offer, his response was, "Work the problem and move forward. You only have the runway in front of you." We wish we had more time to ask for his tender and wise words of advice. He was patient, kind, caring, and he had a fantastic sense of humor. His laughter is still ringing in our ears.

Scott and his family were featured on the cover of Eastmoreland Living, and Scott loved their home. Scott also loved his pugs, and he would want any charitable donations to go to the Oregon Humane Society.

Scott is survived by his wife, Kristin; daughters, Gia and Bianca; mother, Linda Brooksby; siblings, Alisa, Emily (Scott), Rachel (Nathan), Craig (Windy), Ben (Julie), and Anne (John); as well as 24 nieces and nephews; 3 great nieces and nephew; and many aunts, uncles, and


We are all so saddened and wounded by the loss of our dear Scott. We wish he was still with us. He took comfort in the hope that he would be watching over his sweet daughters, whom he adored, in the afterlife.

His departure has left a giant hole in the lives of those who love him. He leaves behind a legacy of excellence and love and he will never, ever be forgotten by all who had the privilege to know and love him. He is the best of brothers, husbands, fathers, sons, and men.
