Brock Joseph Scholes

12/7/1998 ~ 1/21/2023

We are heartbroken to announce the death of Brock J. Scholes, beloved son, brother, grandson and nephew on Jan 21, 2023.

Brock was born on Dec 7, 1998 to Joseph and Katrina Scholes. “A day that will live in infamy”, he would often say, quoting Franklin D. Roosevelt. Brock was born with an intelligent mind and a desire to accomplish what others deemed impossible. He was a gifted thinker, with an endless imagination and a vision for himself that was greater than most. Being born into a military family, he lived in many states, including Utah, California, Montana, North Dakota, Texas, Colorado and Nebraska. Brock spent his days reading books, playing video games, watching his favorite shows on tv, and spending time with his brothers.

Brock graduated from Liberty High School in Colorado Springs before attending Snow College, where he graduated with his Associate’s degree. At the time of his death, he was studying Criminology through Utah State’s extension at Snow College.

Brock had many hobbies, which included reading fantasy novels, writing, playing video games with his brothers, swinging, and taking long walks listening to music. He enjoyed dinner and games at his grandparents on Sundays, his mom’s cookies, deep philosophical discussions with his uncles and Dad, and treating his family at his favorite Mexican Restaurant.

While often shy around those he didn’t know, he possessed a deep intellect, a vivid imagination and an incredibly kind, compassionate heart, and was destined from his youth to never be very rich because of his generous nature. He had an abiding compassion for others, often seeking to assist those who were less fortunate. He had a very big heart. He was a hard worker. Though he faced many challenges, he carried a determination through them to make something of himself.

Brock will be missed by those he left behind. He is survived by his loving parents, Joe and Katrina, brothers Tavo, Ian, and Talan, paternal grandparents, Joe and Lela Scholes of Ephraim, his maternal grandmother, Alice Medford and his step-grandfather Ed Medford of Grantham, NC, uncles Keith Brock (Angel), Kelvin Brock (Eric), Mike Scholes, Spencer Scholes, Paul Scholes, and Aaron (Denise) Scholes, Aunts Kimberly Overton, Crystal Brock, Laura Sloan and Rebecca (Mik) Fehlberg, and cousins, Kaitlyn, Konner, Kaleb, Karoline, Kallie, Kyle, Kala, Adaliyne, Luke, Johnny, Rosie, Lela, Ziggy and Kenneth. He is preceeded in death by his maternal grandfather, Granger Lee Brock.

Memorial services will be held Sunday January 29, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. at Rasmussen Mortuary.

    Dear Joe and Lela, and Joseph and Katrina:

    Brock is in an indescribably beautiful place, surrounded by family, of many generations, who know him by name and who love him. (He is probably astonished at them all, and trying very hard to remember all their names!) He is freed from every concern, feels a perfect peace, and wants desperately for his parents and family here to feel the same.

    Jedidiah M. Grant described his marvelous visit to the spirit world to Heber C. Kimball, (they were both counselors to President Brigham Young), “. . . the order and government that were there . . . the people . . . there were organized in family capacities . . . in perfect harmony . . . He also spoke of the buildings he saw there, remarking that . . . the temple erected by Solomon was much inferior to the most ordinary buildings he saw in the spirit world . . . flowers of numerous kinds, and some with from fifty to a hundred different colored flowers growing upon one stalk . . . so beautiful a place . . .” (“Remarks at the Funeral for Jedediah M. Grant,” Old Tabernacle, Great Salt Lake City, December 4, 1856, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 4, pp. 135-138; That is where he is.

    Dear Joe and Lela Jean, and Joseph and Katrina, we love you and pray that you will be blessed now with “the peace of God, which passeth all understanding” (Philippians 4:7).

    With much love,

    Dear Joe and Katrina,

    We were deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your son, Brock. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

    The loss of a child is a pain that no parent should ever have to bear, and I cannot imagine the depth of your sorrow. I know that the pain of parting is intense, but the Lord will make it all better through the infinite power of His holy Atonement.

    We are here for you, now and always.

    With love and deepest sympathy,

    Matthew and Darby

  28. Dear Joe and Lela,

    My heart hurts to hear about the passing of Brock. I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family have been and will continue to be in my prayers.

    As I look back on my relationship with Brock, I can’t help but smile as I remember the good times that we had. I will miss our conversations about Sci-fi novels and life in general. He was a good man, and will be missed dearly. I’m grateful for the impact that he has had on me. I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of love for him, a love that I know our Savior Jesus Christ also feels for him.

    with much love, Trever and Megan Trythall

But, take solace in the knowledge that you will be with him again and that he is bound to you eternally. The Savior can heal your wounded hearts. He knows you and is aware of your pain at this time. Trust in Him. We love you!
