Scott Russell Rearick

July 31, 1953 - November 04, 2018

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.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Scott's memory to the Milton Booster Club, P.O. Box 13, Milton, PA 17847.

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

My deepest condolences to the Rearick family. Although I have never met Scott, I feel like I did because I can see him in the son he and Amy raised. So sad that he left this world at such a young age. A huge loss......

We did not have the pleasure of knowing Scott, but have been fortunate to know his son Nathan. I know his father would be so proud of the man he has become because of Scottโ€™s influence and nurturing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Amy, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. As Scott was our boss at AHF we learned to love him and respect the man he was. Our hearts are heavy here on this earth but this is only temporary for all of us and we know God has now a special person who is whole. He is in no more pain and we will meet again one day. May God bless you and your family and give you peace and comfort and strength. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Amy and Scott have ALWAYS been special to me! Always a good time and lots of laughs whenever we would get together! Death cannot be an ending. It is a path we are all traveling. Although we have lost all physical contact with Scott,his spirit can NEVER be lost! We have been,and will always be, part of each other! Sending love to his precious family!

Scott will live on in our hearts and fond memories he made in everything he enjoyed with all of us. He had a servants heart and a knack of making everyone feel like the most important person in the room. His smile was a light...and that light always shined the brightest for his Amy, Megan, and Nathan. My daughter was talking just recently about how you could feel the love they shared....canโ€™t think of a nicer compliment from someone who recalled a gathering from her teen years with the Rearicks. God just gained an amazing angel and we take comfort that we will see you again. God bless Amy and all with love and peace.

So many special memories of this wonderful man. All starting back in 1966 when Larry came home from school and told me he had met a most delightful couple, that he was anxious for me to meet. We met, Scott and Amy, and knew instantly why Larry loved them so much. It was catching! Over the years we have been with them, and their wonderful family and enjoyed an awesome relationship on many levels. God has indeed welcomed an angel, with spunk and greatness. May you remaining family members look heavenward and know Scott is at peace and watching over his loved ones. Thank you God for blessing us with Scott Rearick! He will join other family members and a good friend, Larry Barlett.
