He was preceded in death by his mom, Kaye Lenz, mother-in-law, Linda Houser and grandparents Helen and Tom Costello.

Scott graduated from Miamisburg High School in 1980 and Miami University in Oxford in 1984. His lifelong body of work was helping hospitals across the county migrate to the benefits of Electronic Medical Records systems. He built out the healthcare practices at NCR, Provider Solutions, Micromedex, Gartner, until retiring from NetApp, and was passionate about the teams he pulled together to deliver needed innovation. Scott visited 45 states in his travels.

Scott treasured time with family and friends at Bear Lake, MI, ski trips in the Rockies, and winter months with Kelly in Sarasota, FL. He enjoyed supporting his kids' activities as a coach in the Centerville Baseball League and chair of Soaring Sounds, and as an active member of Epiphany Lutheran Church the past 27 years.

A memorial service will be held at Epiphany Lutheran Church on Monday, September 13 at 11:00am, Pastor Jay Shailer officiating, followed by a luncheon at the church, and then a family interment of ashes at Hillgrove Cemetery in Miamisburg. The family requests that all visitors wear a mask at both events.
