Scott graduated from Mid-America College of Funeral Service in 1982. He served his internship with Bickford-Murray Funeral Home in Greenfield, Iowa, and worked for funeral homes in Emmetsburg and Grundy Center, Iowa. In 1997, he and his wife, Connie, became partners in Christensen-Ciha Funeral Homes in Ida Grove, Odebolt, and Battle Creek, Iowa. They eventually became sole owners of the firms and changed the name to Christensen-Huffman Funeral Homes. In 2009, they added a chapel in Sac City.
In 2013, Scott & Connie sold their northwest Iowa funeral homes to purchase Chet Ryan Mortuary in Nevada. They are pleased to be a part of the Nevada community and look forward to many years of service to Nevada and the surrounding communities.
