Kent Craig Lott


Kent Craig Lott, a current resident of Littlefield, Arizona, died unexpectedly at his residence on Sunday, April 16, at the age of 64.

Craig is survived by his sons, Brian (Tyerria) Deru and Dave (Jowell) Deru; his daughter and apple of his eye, Bobbie Lott (Michael); his brother, Rick (Brenda) Lott; sisters, Cindy Boyd (Mark Robinson) and Benjie Butikofer (Ron); grandkids, Malina, Kacee, Hunter, Kori, Kaitlin, Ryker and Karter; great-grandkids, Rylee, Khloee, Rowen and one on the way.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Mack Lott and Traccia Lott Clayson; and a brother, Lloyd Rob Lott.

Craig was born in American Fork, Utah, on Dec. 22, 1958, to Mack Lott and Traccia Overy Lott. While he was a child, the family moved to Evanston, where he spent the majority of his life.

In August of 1977, he married Tamra Toone, who had two sons that Craig raised as his own. In August of 1980, he welcomed home his beautiful daughter, Bobbie. Craig and Tamra later divorced.

In June 2011, he married Joy Minear. They later divorced.

Craig was a successful businessman and entrepreneur. He is best known for Lotty’s, Old West Used Cars, and KC’S RV. He was an active member of the community and associated with the Elks Club, Evanston Chamber of Commerce, Evanston Boat Club and the Evanston Rotary Club.

Throughout his life, Craig enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, camping, golfing, traveling, hunting, cooking, competing in lawnmower races, and riding his Harley motorcycle.

One of his greatest joys in life was to help people down on their luck, whether it was giving them a job, a hot meal or helping them reach their destination. For many years, he fed the less fortunate families in our community on Thanksgiving, and he treated everyone like they were family.

He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him.

A funeral service is scheduled for him at Crandall’s Funeral Home in Evanston on Saturday, May 6. We will reminisce and socialize from 1-2 p.m., followed by the funeral service at 2 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in person at Trona Valley Credit Union or by Venmo to the K Craig Lott memorial fund. Condolences may be left at
