I cannot begin to tell you how much your family means to me, and with the passing of Scott my heart breaks for you. During the time he and I dated he would do very thoughtful things for me like go get my truck, bring it up to your home, and start it up to get the heat going. When we went out to visit your daughter, her husband, and your granddaughters at their boat, he layed down on the dock and ever so gently picked up a duckling from a mother duck and ducklings, and showed it to your grandaughters to let them pet it. He was so gentle with it when he put it back in the water. It was a tender moment. My Dad is 80 now, but Scott came out to my family home when we were together, where my Dad still lives, and Scott picked up the entire yard of fallen tree limbs from a wind storm we had the night before. My Dad started to help and Scott told him no, he'd take care of all of it. Scott went with me out to see my horses and he was like a kid jumping around on the bales of hay! He even got on one of my horses and rode her around the indoor arena bareback! Then he took a piece of hay and stuck it in his mouth and said maybe he should become a Cowboy! He learned to like my Country music only because that's all I would play in my pickup! He thought it was funny how I hung my spurs from the rearview mirror in my pickup. He would always tell you, Dot, how I could eat more than him, but that was because I love your goulash. By far the best. He told me the first time we met each other for dinner he was scared to death, and he was a basket case of nerves. That cracked me up! Me! Just a little Cowgirl! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to spend some months with Scott, and to get to know your loving family. Please know my heart felt condolences are sincere, and may the Lord be with you during this grief stricken time. Scott was a good guy. ~ Nancy, the Cowgirl

Our hearts are so sad. Scott was a special person who had a an infectious smile and a huge heart. Ron, Dot, Shelly, Qwinn and Bessie, we cannot put into words the sorrow we are feeling. Much love and sympathy to you all. Go with God, Scott.

I remember a young man full of life and ready to tackle the world. The first "Scott" from Standish-Sterling Central High School to qualify for and place at States in Wrestling, followed by Scott Suszko and our son, Scott Kimball. A man proud of his son, Qwinn, and wanting him to know success so much that he made sure the word "win" was part of his name. A man who struggled internally, but who was loved by many.

The world is a little dimmer with Scott's light no longer shining. The end of his life was tragic but he has entered the Kingdom of a God where he will now find the peace that seemed to evade him here on Earth. Sleep soundly dear Scott . . . Until we meet again ??

My deepest sympathies to Scott's entire family. It has been years since I have seen Scott, but remember his beautiful smile and sweet personality. May he rest in peace.

I will always remember both you and your brother Sheli getting on the bus years ago. I thought you both were Gerber babies both just beautiful and always smiling :) As the years past watching your brother on the football field along with mine (Chuck) was always a Friday night of excitement! As I sit and write this I can remember him running like his pants were on fire! For an SSC touchdown :) He was a pure joy to watch on the football field!
I am praying for you all in this very painful time. I know, there is not one word or jesture anyone can do at this moment to bring back what you want most your Dad, son, brother, uncle , friend but please know you have a whole community just heartbroken and praying for you all. Thank you for allowing Scott in ours lives and the memories we will carry forever in our hearts.
Thoughts and Prayers now and forever .

Although the miles and years seperate us, I fondly remember escapades with Sheli and Scott in our days of youth attending church, 4-H club and summer camping with their family in Tawas. My heart is heavy with sadness and sorrow for my childhood friend, Sheli and the Shorkey family. You have my deepest condolences and sympathy.

Scott you were a guy who was tough on the outside ( and tough all around in general) yet showed a kindness to most. I didnt get to know you real well but will cherish the times in wrestling practice and on way to pine river fishing. I will never forget our talks and the van rides to wrestling meets with you jamming and singing to ac/dc. U were full of life and fun and had a genuine personality. Im saddened that it has been elevan or twelve yrs since I last saw and spoke with you when we were doing drywall. I know you are in a peaceful place now and will always be looking down on your friends and family (Qwinn)as you looked out for them while you were here. R.I.P Scott
December 31, 2013

Was very sorry to hear about Scott. We used to run in some of the same circle in high school and shortly after. My sincere condolences to the entire family and all of his many friends.
December 31, 2013
Scott, my friend and wrestling team mate. He has been a permanent part of my high school memories since I left in 88. we were primary wrestling partners all through school and helped each other to be the best we could be. I continue to share stories of those days with my son about those most awesome days. My only regret is that I didn't find him and let him know his good friend was there for him. I'll always remember Scott and the camaraderie we had on the best wrestling team Standish sterling Central High School has ever known! God be with you my friend.

Scott will be forever missed. I remember when I worked at Big Wheel and he came in with Qwinn. He couldn't have been more than 8 months old. Scott handed him to me and said I'd like for you to meet my son Qwinn, with his face so full of pride. I will cherish that moment always. Rest in Peace my friend.
