Scott Russell Rearick Scott Russell Rearick, 65, of Milton, passed away peacefully at home on the morning of Nov. 4, 2018, surrounded by his loving family and returned to the Lord, escaping the ravages of cancer.

Scott was born July 31, 1953, in Lewisburg, son of Paul and the late Patricia (Kratzer) Rearick.

He graduated from Milton Area High School in 1971 and attended Kutztown University and Pennsylvania College of Technology. On June 23, 1973, he married the love of his life, whom he met at age 13, Amy Louise Vincent. His passing ends a 45-year marriage. Scott and Amy enjoyed life together. With his youthfulness and witty humor, Scott was so fun to be around. They traveled to Wyoming's Yellowstone, New York's Finger Lakes, all over Maine and California, three-Hawaiian Islands, Kentucky's bourbon trail, South Dakota's Mount Rushmore and trips with friends to Alaska, Nevada, Canada, Nova Scotia and countless road trips. They had many more trips planned.

Scott is survived by his wife, Amy; daughter, Megan Crawford and her spouse Robert; son, Nathaniel and his spouse Lindsey; his father, Paul; sister and brother-in-law, Paula and Ben Herbst; brother and sister-in-law, Paul and Stacey Rearick; in-laws, Dudley and Helen Louise Vincent; grandson, Kyler; and granddaughters, Lydia, Addison, and Emerson.

Scott prioritized his family life over his career and never missed his children and grandchildren's school functions, ballet recitals, and sporting events. His greatest accomplishment was seeing the people his children have become and how they have contributed to society. He did his job. He will forever be happy. His job is done.

He enjoyed fishing with his son, grandson, son-in-law and fishing buddies, Ozzie and Short. He loved traveling with his wife, family and close friends. He also enjoyed Penn State wrestling, college football, good restaurants, bourbon and cigars, antiquing, keeping his yard looking good, and life in general.

He worked at Continental Can and retired in 2011 from ConAgra Foods where he held the position of Supervisor, Quality Assurance and gained the respect of his peers and direct reports and was known as a strong leader who helped coach and improve the performance of others. In retirement, he worked part time at Ficks Hardware.

Scott supported his community by serving on the Milton Area District School Board, as president of Milton Area Little League, and VP of the Milton Booster Club. He was a member of the Union County Sportsmen's Club. In 2006, he received the Super Booster Award for unselfish contributions of service.

Scott fought a hard, year-long battle with grit and bravery and with an extraordinary will to live. Scott will be missed but not forgotten by all who knew him. God is getting a spirited and witty angel to keep Heaven more interesting.

The family would like to extend a warm thank you to all who were involved in Scott's care.

His celebration of life service is being planned for Friday, Nov. 23, 2018 at the Wynding Brook Golf Club, 201 Harvey's Lane, Milton, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. visitation with service starting at 1, followed by a lunch reception.

The family is being assisted by the Shaw Funeral Home, 400 N. Front St., Milton.
