Lura, friends and family, as hard as it will be,
please enjoy Scot's special day. He would have wanted everyone to have a good time and have fun entertaining one another. All the Best and God Bless!!! Andrew

Thinking of Scots family as they gather for a memorial in PA. I will always remember Scots boyish smile and he did make you smile too. Blessings to the family.
This sucks! I am sad to find that Scot is no longer with us. His presence always brought laughter and joy to every gathering.
I first met Scot in 1977. He sat in the desk behind me in "German III" with "Herr Mueller". That same year Columbia Heights theatre produced Sound of Music in which Scot had the role of Maximillian Detweiler. Seriously - no one ever gave that role a better showing.
In the fall of 1977 all 1,800 students at Columbia Heights HS looked forward to morning announcements. The reason was an ongoing serial created by Scot and a few friends about the misadventures of two favorite teachers - Tofte and Wisniewski - as they made their way through various global challenges eventually leading to the CHHS production of Sound of Music. The level of creativity and free-form acting during morning announcements was incredible. And the VAST majority of it was Scot.
Only Scot and his core group of friends could have ever pulled off such a thing. Given the responses I witnessed in Home Room it was incredibly popular.
I regret that I did not know Scot was going to leave us such that I could let him know in person of how much he gave us and how much I appreciated his friendship. A great human being!
Scot and I were members of the same pledge class of Delta Tau Delta at the University of Minnesota in 1978. I am sorry to only recently hear of his passing. Scot was one of the most colorful and lively people I ever met. He brought a smile to everyone's face, and his memory will continue to do so. Blessings to all his loved ones.
Scot was my fiend and Fraternity brother at the U of M. I am sorry I heard of his passing too late to attend his services or to visit him. Everyone always enjoyed his creativity and presence. I miss you Scot and will pass the word to our friends.
Scott was my bud in 7th and 8th grade. I moved away and we lost track. Tonight, I rented Ordinary People and after, tried to track him down. Finding his obit. seemed almost an impossibility. I'm saddened.
His skill as an actor was finely tuned, even at a young age, but I remember his hilarious cartoons. He built meticulously crafted models. He was a good friend!
God-Bless you, Scott!
Scot, you will never be forgotten.
Scott was the lead in my thesis film at Film in the Cities. He brought great life to a rather stiff, amateurishly written role. We became friends until I left for NYC many years ago. Just the other night I was mentioning Scott to friend of mine. I decided to do a little research and see if I could look him up. See how he was doing. That research is how I happened upon this site. You were a blast to hang out with during our youth.
Our prayers are with your family.
My condolences and prayers go out to Scot's family. Scot was in my sixth grade class at North Park Elem. in the Heights. He was one of those students a teacher does not forget. I'm not surprised to hear about the wonderful adult he turned out to be. So sorry for your loss.
Dear David, Lura and Jennifer,
My heart goes out to all of you in the loss of your dear brother. Scot touched the lives and hearts of so many people. He was so full of life and promise. Scot charmed us all with his infectious smile and wonderful stories. He adored his family and never forgot his PA roots. Scot was a very special person and he enriched all our lives. May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends. Love,
I remember Scot from High School (a very handsome young man) and when he got the part in Ordinary People. I would hear about him every once in a while. I hadn't been in contact with him since High School. It saddens me to know he has passed (too soon, too young), but from what I read in the obit and in this guest book he lived a full life and was surrounded by the love of friends and family.
I greatly enjoyed my visit with Scot in hospice last month. It was precious to see how loving Lura, Scot and Jennifer were together. They truly were family. Rest peacefully Scot. We all be along in a little while.
Thoughts and prayers to the Doebler family. I have such fond memories of Scot during college when he dated my twin sister Penny. We shared some great times together. Love,
RIP Scott....You made me laugh so much. You had a creative soul.
our thoughts and prayer go out to Scot's family and close friends ,,,may God be with you all in this difficult time ,,GOD BLESS
He will be missed here. My love to all his family.
Thoughts and prayers with your family during this difficult time
Scot has a smile that would light up the entire room. Heaven has a new bright star. Good night sweet prince!
Blessing, Prayers, and Love to all the family. Scot was a special family friend near and very dear to my heart.
My Love and Sympathy are with you at this time.
Blessing and Love and Prayers to the family. Scot was a very dear and wonderful friend to my heart who I will remember forever.

God enfold Scot's family and all those who loved him during these sad days. God cradle him in light and peace.
Scot was the first thing anyone saw upon entering a room he was in.
Everyone who knew him will remember him and smile.

I can never forget his distinct voice echoing through the halls at CTC. Out of body, in to Spirit!! See you later, Scot.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Doebler family as you grieve the loss of a very bright star. Scot entertained us with his quick sense of humor, turn of a phrase, accent, and facial expressions combined. He was always the entertainer in life and brilliant on stage. Everyone in the theatre community in Columbia Heights knew he would go on to do great things. Now he is entertaining the angels in heaven.
Goodbye Eyecandy, you will be missed
