Gregory Scott LeMaire
August 30, 1965 - October 08, 2020
Gregory Scott LeMaire was lifted up to heaven to be with the Lord on October 8, 2020. At the age of 55, he passed away after a short battle with cancer and a weakened heart.
Scott was born on August 30, 1965 in San Antonio and later moved to Houston and graduated from Northbrook High School in the Spring Branch area. He was working for Siemens at the time of his passing. He attended Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
There, he graduated with a degree in electrical engineering. He grew up loving cars and racing them. He worked on cars with his father and friends and occasionally raced the cars he built. Early in his career as an electrical engineer, he traveled the world
and made it to every continent but Antarctica. Later in his life, Scott loved to travel with his wife and daughter and tell them all about what he learned in his previous trips. Scott loved NASCAR and Indy car racing. He watched car races religiously like
so many watch football. He was ecstatic when he and his wife got to go to the Indianapolis 500. One of his biggest joys was dressing up as Santa at the family Christmas party each year. Scott was a faithful member of numerous churches throughout his life including
Clay Road Baptist, Houston’s First Baptist, and his current church, Champion Forest Baptist at Jersey Village in Houston.
Scott is preceded in death by his father, Gordon LeMaire. He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Cheryl Marion LeMaire; daughter, Rebekah LeMaire; mother, Betty LeMaire; brother, Gardner LeMaire: sister-in-law, Gail Oakley and husband, Michael; sister-in-law,
Janet Hunt and husband, Randy; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Scott was a devoted husband and father and there was nothing that could keep him away from time with family. Scott volunteered with so many things that involved his daughter and her interests. He liked to do things that made those around him laugh and his sense
of humor was so much a part of who he was. His kind wit, albeit sarcastic in the funniest of ways, put people at ease. His inclusive demeanor made others in his presence feel welcomed and included as he found ways to tie all present into conversations. He
expressed authentic interest in what was going on in the lives of those around him. Scott will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
