Services were this week for Scott Franklin Sailors, 41, a veteran of the U.S. Army and an employee of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, who died Oct. 18 in Tracy.

Mr. Sailors was born Feb. 2, 1971, in Dumas, Texas, and grew up in American Falls, Idaho. He served seven years in the Army, including time in Germany and throughout the United States. He also coordinated the U.S. Army Honor Guard.

After his military service, Mr. Sailors worked for Micron in Boise, Idaho, for several years and then moved to Tracy upon accepting a position with the lab as an electronic technician.

Survivors include his fiancée, Kristee Palmquist of Tracy; two daughters, Elizabeth Sailors and Sarah Sailors, both of Tracy; three elder brothers, Mike Sailors, and his wife, Barbara, of Kennewick, Wash., Dave Sailors of Billings, Mont., and Steve Sailors, and his wife, Janneece, of Twin Falls, Idaho; his former wife of 19 years, Monica Sailors of Tracy; and many other relatives.

Parents Dewey and Norma Sailors preceded him in death.

A celebration of Mr. Sailors’ life took place Monday, Oct. 22, at Fry Memorial Chapel, 550 S. Central Ave. A graveside service with military honors followed Thursday, Oct. 25, at Falls View Cemetery in American Falls, Idaho. Condolences can be shared through an online guest book at
