Scott was born on New Years Day in 1957. He was a curious and smart little boy. Heachieved the rank of Star Scout in the Boy Scouts. His best friend, Glenn Muller, was a constant companion, bike riding with him to fish at the local docks. Before he joined the U.S. Postal Service he was a chef in several local restaurants. Even as he grew to adulthood his favorite season was Christmas. When he was small he never slept on Christmas Eve because he always heard Santa’s reindeer outside. He loved going as a family to pick out our tree and coming home to hot chocolate his mom made. He loved the decorating, the cooking, the whole loving atmosphere and sharing Christmases with his wife and family made him the happiest.
In 1987, he married the love of his life, Cristine Sayler. In addition to his wife, he gained two stepchildren, Penny and Keith. During his adult years Scott enjoyed a good Twins baseball game, either on television or at the ballpark, all while in the company of his loving wife, Cristine, fishing at various lakes, reading, working on home renovation projects, and of course a good Poker game was always a good time for him. He cherished spending time with his grandchildren and making special memories with them, which always left a warm spot in his heart.
God has prepared a place in heaven where they can live forever in His arms. We findsolace in the fact that he was ours to love for a while. Goodbye, our sweet Scott
