Scott was born on June 21, 1974 in Melrose, Minnesota to Werner, Jr. and Marilyn (Gregory) Eibensteiner. He married Jennifer Aigner on November 17, 2001; to this union two beautiful girls were born. Scott proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps.
In his mind Scott didn't have a brain tumor, what saved him was the thought of his lovely wife, Jenn, who chose to marry him in spite of the fact he carried a deadly enemy around in his head. She chose to be his partner in this battle no matter what that meant. Scott gave Jenn the fight and Jenn gave Scott the substance to build their lives together and truly live each day.
Scott loved the people in his life and was never short on saying or showing it. He had a wonderful sense of humor, making everyone else laugh until his last day.
Scott was the big brother to Tracy, Chris, Jenny, Derek and Jarita. He was their rock and their cuddler. Almost every moment of the last 12 years, Scott and Jenn were together, doing things they both enjoyed. Scott loved hunting with his Dad and Chris, and with his friends he enjoyed tennis, camping and fishing; always with the goal to catch the big one. The best one he ever caught was Jenn. He loved her, adored her and felt he was the luckiest man on earth. From that love came his sp ecial Brooke and Chloe and he showed them what it meant to have a special Daddy. He was so proud of them and loved spending time with them.
Scott put his college degree to good use not in his intended field, but partnering with his great friend, Jay, developing a team and a landscaping business that brought beauty to the world. He was proud of his accomplishments in life and his parents are extremely proud to call this brave warrior their son.
Scott is survived by his wife, Jenn; daughters, Brooke and Chloe; parents, Werner, Jr. and Marilyn; grandparents, Vern and Lucille Eibensteiner, Rita Gregory-Huseth and Lyle Huseth; sisters and brother, Tracy Cousin and her children KayLynn, Branden and Preston; Jenny (Matt) Dokken, Derek, Jarita and her daughter, Neela; Chris's wife, Danielle; and their daughter, Olivia.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Urban Gregory; brothers, Russell and Chris.
