To my friend Scott, We have missed you every day since you left us one year ago today. The hole in our family circle can be filled by no one else. We will do our best for your family. I look forward to another game of Pitch someday. Nirmal
To my friend, Scott. We have missed you every day since you left us one year ago today. We have done our best but the hole in our family circle can't be filled. I am looking forward to another challenging game of Pitch one day. Nirmal
Dear Scott, you left us a year ago today...much too soon. I know you have watched over the events of the last year but we have missed you so much. The zest was just not there when you weren't there. Rachel and Wyatt are wonderful young people showing many of your qualities. We will always think of you and love you and wish you were with us still. Until we meet again. Sharon
Happy, Happy Birthday, dear Scott on your special day. We love you and miss you every single day. April and May are filled with occasions we are celebrating as a family and there is a hole in our circle, and in our hearts. I know you are watching and sending precious thoughts to Kitty, Wyatt and Rachel. You would be so proud of them. Sharon

We miss you every day, my friend. Things will never be the same but for you, it has only gotten better. Nirmal
Today is Thanksgiving and we are thankful for the 43 years you were here on earth and that you lived your life to the fullest. As we gather and eat dinner today, we will miss you and Larry and wish you were with us. You are in our hearts and thought of with love every day. Your life was a blessing to your family, as well as many others. Until we meet again...
I wish you were here today sitting at the kitchen table dealing me a hand of cards. Our visits will never be the same. I am thankful to have shared a family with you, my friend.
As Thanksgiving approaches, I am so thankful for the times shared with you and not a day goes by that I don't think about you. You are so loved and missed by all of your family and friends. It's just not the same without you and your smiling face.
Wow, I was going to get in touch with Mr. D to tell him all the ways he inspired me to become a teacher only to find out he had passed. Well Mr D, you are one of the most inspirational people I have ever met. You were not only a special one-of-a-kind teacher, but also a special person. You not only challenged your students but you encouraged them as well. I will never forget the message you left me in my 8th grade yearbook. You are missed, God bless you! Rest In Peace Mr. D!
I havent seen Scott since just after high school, i just remember his big smile! He was always such a nice guy and I'm sure he grew into a great man/husband/daddy. So sorry to hear he passed. Your family is in our prayers, may God comfort you.
Loving and missing you every day. We are doing our best for Kitty, Rachel and Wyatt but nothing is the same without you. All our kids have returned to school and it is hard to believe you are not there too. Love, Sharon
So hard to believe it has been a month ago today our dear Scottie left us.. We miss him so much.. Love you Bro
Such a touching man. Left the world before his time. The whole dessenberger family will be in my prayers.
Scott, you have left us way too soon. Your influence will last for generations of children. I keep thinking you have just gone on a fishing trip. We'll do our best for Kitty, Rachel and Wyatt and never forget your enthusiasm and love of life. Your void can never be filled. Love always, Sharon
I'll miss all the good times and the games we played at the kitchen table,my friend. You left us too soon and will never be forgotten.
Mr. D's genuine love and compassion for others will leave a lasting impression for all eternity. Praying the LORD's hand be upon the family. Praying for His comfort, grace and peace. The Mitchell's
Mr D!!!! me and my brother ed savage will truly miss you and know that you are always going to put a smile on our faces just the thought of you and your awesome personality!!!! may god bless your family and you continue to make all of us laugh with your memories or little signs that you are still here playing pranks and being silly!!! will always have the utmost love and respect for you!!! enjoy your paradise now!!!
Mr.D, you will always be in our hearts as our favorite teacher ever. You were fun, excited about teaching, and always a nice person. Thank you for giving back to the community and being our teacher. I will always remember you as calling me only by my last name "DelaRosa". My prayers go out to your family, friends, and all the people affected by you passing. I'm sure there are many more past students like me that are feeling the same sadness that I am.
Mr. D!! Such an amazing person! You helped me through such a hard time in 7th an 8th grade! I will never forget all the support and advice you gave! You will be missed dearly by all!
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
You will always be missed and I'll never forget the things you taught me and advice you gave me. Thank you for everything and you will be missed dearly. Gone but never forgotten.
World's now shorter by a good man missed by many. Farewell.
Mr D. I was so sad to hear of your passing. You made such an impact on me the two years I had the privilege of being your student. Thanks to you I found a love for reading Dean Koontz, and you made me enjoy writing. You will be missed by so many and my thoughts are with your family.
The world truly is missing a great man today. Scott was my teacher, my mentor, a coach, a father, and one of the first teachers to believe in me. Ill never forget nerding out to Magic The Gathering then hitting the courts. My blessings to your family and may you soar with the Angels Mr. D.
Hey they call me the fire man! Mr D you'll be terribly missed u were an awesome, funny , person! N the best teacher! R.I.P
My friend, Scott, you have left me with many memories. In 1995 you did more than be my student teacher; you taught me valuable lessons, too. Daniel was a baby and you liked holding him as we talked school stuff. You played in the first "Turkey Bowl" football game during Thanksgiving break on the Bellair Greenbelt. Too many good times to write them all. I guess the angels in Heaven were jealous, as E. A. Poe said. You are missed by many!
Mr. D u were a great teacher u were one teacher that mosg wished they could b. always there for ur students no matter how bisi ur schedule was. the first day of school was the first anniversary of my dads passing and u took me outaide so i could talk to u and did the samefor any other classmate. u were one of a kind U will b missed greatly.. enjoy playing ball with the rest of ur studrnts luved onez.
you were one of the great teachers that cared for his students you inspired me and helped me through a very hard time in my life i bet the lord needed you to coach his team of angels r . i . p. you truly were a great man
Words cannot express the shock and sadness upon hearing this terrible news. Scott was a warm and loving person, I never saw him get angry or upset at anyone. He was a model for us all. He was also my daughter's favorite teacher. He will be missed.
From all of us AZ Diehards...Love you buddy!
Scott you are an amazing man. Your passion was contagous and inspiring. There are so many of us who are better people because we knew you. Heaven is lucky to have you. Till we meet again.
To say Coach D charismatic would be an understatement. He was the type of person who could be having a bad day and still walk into class or onto the courts and change his attitude. Some days he could make someone smile just from the energy and sheer joy of life he exuded. He was always willing to lend a hand; whether it was for extra time on the courts to get a serve just right or giving feedback on the first college essay before it was due, he always found the time.
Mr. D was an amazing teacher, in the classroom as well as in sports. In class, he brought the lessons and literature to life; I had hated Beowulf before his class and after, not only did I love the story, but it helped fuel my passion for writing and editing.
The world has lost a true light - someone who gave inspiration to so many and will be missed. Rest in peace Coach Dessenberger, my teacher and my friend.
Scott will be missed by everyone who knew him. I remember when he got big enough to sit on the roof of our house to watch fireworks and then he just kept growing. He was a pretty good co-ed softball pitcher. Scott you have a special place in the hearts of our family and we were lucky to be included in many of the Dessenberger family events. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of your family. Rest in peace. The Smiths
Scott, my friend. I'm am lucky and proud to have been your friend for so many years. I will miss you deeply and am fortunate to know you will be looking down upon us all with the smile and laughter we so cherished.
Rest in peace.
Dear Scott... SO many years have gone and still this breaks my heart. I pray that your family finds some peace. I hope you rest in peace my friend.
Mr D., I couldn't believe it when I heard the news of your passing. When I met first you, you had this beaming smile along with your scruffy beard. You were an amazing educator. One of those who inspired me to become one myself.
I remember saying to myself, 'Wow, when the time comes, I want to be that kind of teacher.' I'm certain that he has positively influenced a lot of lives including mine even when before he started teaching.
That is the kind of the person he is. The world is a much better place with good people around and he was undoubtedly one of them.
I am saddened by this news and my condolences go towards his family.
So if it's possible that he could read this, I just want to say that it was a blessing to have met him. My prayers for him and towards his family in this time of sorrow.
May you rest in peace Mr. D. You will forever stay in memory.
Mr. D was one of the best teachers I have ever had. He was compassionate and had high expectations. I can only hope to continue that legacy as a teacher myself.
Scott I will so very much miss your lighthearted nature and generosity. You were such a fun guy to work with. Thank you for sharing a little of your life with us at Crossroads. It truly was a pleasure getting to know you.. You knew just how to lighten up my day! ? Much love goes out to your family.. PS... I will be sure to have a vanilla coke in memory of you!!
Mr. D. You made English one of my favorite classes of 8th grade. I hated English until your class. I haven't had anything English teacher that could compare. You made reading fun. You were one of the most memorable teachers I have ever had. You will be missed! Sun Valley Class of '97. <3
My Dearest Brother In Law, their is such an empty void in all of our hearts. Still so hard to believe. We have the greatest memories and will hold them all close to our hearts. We were very luck not only to call you brother but to call you our BEST FRIEND. We will always be here for Kitty, Rae and Wy to help. Dan, Sara and I will truly miss you. Until we meet again. Love you
Scott, I know I haven't spoken to you in years, but have fond memories of hanging out with you and Danny in High School. Your present on this earth made it a better place and you will be missed!
Coach Dessenberger was definitely one of the good ones. He was a great tennis coach and even if we played poorly, he was always there to give us compliments and make us laugh. He will truly be missed.
You will live on in our hearts and memories until we meet again. We love you and miss you and will always be there for Kitty, Rachel and Wyatt. I will truly miss my Dbacks buddy!
Oh my Scott! I'm still in immense shock. I've known u since 4th grade and we all grew up together. Never in a million years did u expect to hear such sad news if your passing! You have a gorgeous family and you should be so proud of your accomplishments! I'm truly at a loss for words even the right ones. The gang of us oldies will surely miss u! You've left me with great fishing and bowling memories! I still laugh to this day over my gift when were little and u wrapped it like a thousand times to find a MJ sequin glove. Not sure why u picked it but still to this day it gives me laughs! I'm going to miss u old man! I wish I could be there to share what a great person u r. I'll be thinking of u and your beautiful family on the 15th. Massive hugs to u which now even standing on my toes I would never be able to reach u! Help Larry too, he's hurting. Bye buddy!
Coach, I only have great memories of you. You truly inspired me to be the best person that I could be. I could not have asked for a better teacher, coach, mentor, and friend. You were my biggest supporter and helped me in so many ways. You were the kindest most loving man and I know you were loved by all, especially by me.
Coach Dessenberger was the kindest, most compassionate coach my children ever played for. He taught so much more than winning. He is the kind of man the kids all contacted years later to share good news, weddings, and just check in. Thanks for a million smiles, good memories and true friendship. Love and prayers to your family.
Scott, my genuine friend.
Although consumed by profound sadness with your passing, I will always cherish the time spent with you over the past 20 years. We had the type of friendship that didn't matter if we last spoke and 3 hours, 3 days or 3 months previously - whenever we would meet, it would be like we had just spoken the previous day. We had so many great adventures and quality family time spent together that I will never forget You made me laugh, listened when I needed someone to confide to, offered advice and challenged me when I needed it. Twice, you literally saved me from physical harm (once deep out to sea on the Gulf of Mexico, once at Hooter's of all places). I am comforted to know another guardian angel in Heaven is now watching over me. You were an awesome Godfather and role model to our kids and your philosophies and outlook on life will always be with us. There will be a great void in our physical lives that cannot be replaced but I know that you are with us all spiritually.
I never had you for a teacher but I know that you have left such a remarkable legacy. Rest in peace.
One of the good guys has been called home. God Bless you Scott. Linda & Bill Silbor
Scott, you were always a big brother to me when I was little and you continued to be so even after we grew up. I considered you family and will miss your words of wisdom. My thoughts and prayers are with your family in this great time of sorrow. You will be missed immensely.
Scott you will always be in our hearts we will miss that awesome smile come through our doors, Kitty our prayers are with you and your children. I know Scott is looking over all of you! Dr Pete and Peggy
kitty,Scott was one of our favorite patients he seemed to love what he did and loved his family and talked a lot about fishing you could always hear Scott and Dr Milbrandt laughing I don't know what they talked about but they had a good time we will miss his smile come through the door our prayers our with you and your children. I know he is looking down and keeping all you safe! Dr. Milbrandt and Peggy
Such a huge loss of society and to the eduction system, a true diamond. Our Son was blessed to have him as a teacher and we then came to know him as parents and what an honor it was. Even after Dan moved on to other teachers we would always go visit Mr.Dessenberger. He cared for all of his students and pushed them to excel. Dan says he will always remember a lecture "Two Truths And A Lie" and the great fun they had. May you listen to Shania Twain forever. Mr.Dessenberger you touched so many souls and we are grateful to have been a portion of your life during Dan's High School years...Barry Goldwater mourns as a true great has returned home
You forever touched my heart and taught me so many things. Miss you dearly.
I never got to meet him but I wish I had. Prayers to the family and God bless
You touched many lives in the short amount of time you were here on this Earth. You might be gone, but will never be forgotten. I will miss you my friend.
