Visitation will be held from 4-8 pm Thursday, September 26, 2019 at Cruz Family Funeral Home in Osceola. A casual celebration of Scott’s life will be held beginning at 5:00 pm Friday, September 27, 2019 at the outdoor pavilion of the Edwardsburg Sports Complex, 27566 US 12, Edwardsburg, Michigan 49112. In Scott’s honor, his family asks if possible, to wear Cubs, Bears, Purdue or Tie-Died shirts, all things Scott was extremely fond of.
Scott was a creative spirit whose entrepreneurial skills were unmatched. Besides his career in physical therapy, Scott was a screenwriter and director, marketing guru, craft beer aficionado, and wine maker. He also enjoyed studying history, especially American history including the Civil War and WWII.
His faith in the Lord was strong, using the journey of his illness to show God’s presence in his life for the ultimate purpose of touching theirs. He also loved his “Framily” just as much. He and the men of his family were also “Loyal Members of the Water Buffalo” and celebrated each other’s membership whenever they had a chance.
