To celebrate Scott’s life, visitation will be held from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Monday, May 18, 2020, at Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street.

Scott was born on September 30, 1958, in Dubuque, Iowa, son of John F. and Barbara (Bradley) Schroeder.
Scott graduated from Stephen Hempstead High School and right after graduation entered the U.S. Army until his honorable discharge in 1976. He was united in marriage to Lisa Driscoll on November 15, 1986, in East Dubuque, Illinois, and they were blessed with a son together. Scott was a hard worker who was employed with A.Y. McDonald for 33 years, never missing a single day of work, until his retirement in 2013. In his free time, Scott enjoyed watching the Minnesota Vikings or spending the afternoon trying his luck at his favorite fishing hole. Scott was very kind and humble, with a low-key personality, but wasn’t afraid of being the life of the party. His laugh was infectious, and if you were lucky enough to have heard it you will never forget it! His family and friends were no doubt the most important part of his life. Scott would do anything for anyone, never had a bad word to say about anyone, and was quite happy keeping his life drama free. Everyone who knew him, knew that the kids and grandkids were his pride and joy, he loved spending time with them. We are truly heartbroken at losing Scott in our daily lives, but take some comfort in knowing that he is now resting peacefully, free of the health issues he has faced so bravely these past months.
