Kippert, Scott A.

Reunited with his loving parents, Shirley and Florian Jr. on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 age 62 years.  Loving father of Ashley Raunio.  Proud grandpa of Carter Raunio.  Beloved brother of Denyse (Mark) Stanley and Diane (Harry) Gunderson.  Dear uncle of Christopher (Alicia) Stanley and Michael (Elizabeth) Stanley.  Further survived by great-nieces, great-nephews, his girlfriend Debra Schultz, other relatives and countless loving friends.

Scott embodied everything that is good and bright in this world. It is a little bit dimmer now that his light has left us and we are the worse for it.   He was someone larger than life that was stolen from this world too soon.

Scott was a loving man with a heart for other people.  He was a hopeless romantic who was finally able to find his true love in Debbie Schultz. He believed life is about the relationships we have.  All of Scott’s relationships were important to him and he felt we should live our lives in such a way that there is no distinction between family and friends.  To him everyone he loved and cared about was considered family. Caring for and helping that family was his joy.

A great story teller, Scott loved to talk about the myriad of jobs he had during his life from working at a donut shop, to being a body shop manager and ultimately using his skills and knowledge to become a self-employed property owner and handyman.  Scott was a true renaissance man always inquisitive and learning and happy to share that knowledge and skills with anyone who needed help.

He had a sense of humor that would really grab your attention and would last well into his last days.  An inspiration to all, in his final years while he was struggling with his health he pushed forward day by day with his normal routine.

Scott was a lover of nature and the outdoors.  Some of his happiest days were at his cottage that he shared with his parents and subsequently his friends and loved ones. He was saddened when he could no longer visit the place he loved but we know his spirit will live on Maiden Lake for all eternity.  Because of who he was, we have the assurance that he is in heaven with his family that left before him, and we will see his smiling face again soon.

Until then Scotty Boy.

Family and friends will gather at HERITAGE FUNERAL HOME, 16880 West National Avenue New Berlin , WI 53151 on Friday, June 17 from 4-6 PM.  A celebration of his life with sharing of memories and memorial service at 6 PM.  Reception to follow.

Per Scott’s wishes, please dress casually.

    “Scotty” as he liked to call himself 👍. In spite of some intense arguments (imagine that 😝) & sometimes we went months w/o talking we had a special bond & love for each other that I had with no one else 👍❤️ Even when Sotty was so sick he was thinking/ looking out for me 👍.
