Scott Joseph Bliven

June 4, 1969 - August 22, 2020

Scott Joseph Bliven of McKinney, Texas passed away August 22, 2020, at the age of 51, and was welcomed into the embrace of our Heavenly Father.  He was born on June 4, 1969 to Fred “Buddy” Allyn Bliven and Helen Frances [Terminesi] Bliven in New London, Connecticut.  Scott grew up in Waterford, Connecticut and was a 1987 graduate of Waterford High School.  He earned his bachelor’s degree in Education from Central Connecticut State in New Britain, Connecticut.  Scott taught and worked in medical sales throughout his life.  Most recently, he worked as a structural analyst in the foundation inspection industry.  Scott loved to laugh, enjoyed music and sports. Fun fact: Scott still holds the Javelin record at Waterford High School that he set 33 years ago, 203'9" in 1987.  Scott most of all cherished being a dad to his children.

He is survived by his daughter, Paxtyn Anne Bliven; son, Bryce Thomas Bliven; their mother, Christina Wolfe, all of McKinney, Texas; his mother, Helen Bliven, brother, Bruce Bliven and wife, Janet, and his sister, Traci Bliven Susi, all of Waterford and his brother-in-law, Jeff Susi of Mystic; several nephews and nieces, and many other loving family members and friends.

Scott was preceded in death by his father, Fred Bliven.

Claude Johnson, September 3, 2020 I miss Scott so much and my prayers go out to his family and friends that God will provide comfort. He has been more like a son than a son-in-law to me. For those of us who knew Scott , we remember what a good man he was. We remember his keen mind; his love and acceptance of people; his wonderful sense of humor; his great bear hugs; his service, whenever possible, to others; and his inner beauty that could be seen on the outside. Be assured that the beauty we could see in him, remains visible in the faces of his children, Paxtyn and Bryce. When we look at them, we will remember him. Thank you Lord for sharing Scott with us for a season. We are better for having know him.

Jeff Susi , August 25, 2020 Scott was a kind, loving, and loyal friend. I take great pleasure in saying that I consider him one of the best friends I had in high school and after. I can still vividly remember all of our 1 on 1 basketball battles before practice, playing cards at his parents house, "5 to win 30, got to be in" (famous Scott quote), trips to Misquamicut Beach, and just hanging out. He was truly an incredible person. I will miss him dearly. Hubert Lee, August 25, 2020 We are saddened to hear of Scott's passing. He will be greatly missed by his family and all that knew him.
