Scott Jay Methner, age 61, born November 17, 1950, passed away at Central Michigan Community Hospital in Mount Pleasant, on Monday, March 26, 2012, after a battle with pneumonia.
He was preceded in death by his father Leroy Harold Methner of Coleman and many uncles, aunts, brothers-in-law, niece and cousins
Scott is survived by his mother, Marian Lucille Falconer Methner of Mt. Pleasant; and five sisters, Connie Henze and Deanna Methner both of Coleman, Cheryl Peters of Sandusky, Shelly Garner of Clare, and Kerry Methner (and Mark Whitehurst) of Santa Barbara, CA; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Scott will be fondly remembered by the generations following him including his daughter, Tracy (Chris) Wenzel; and her children, Evan and Addyson; Scott's nieces and nephews, Brian Peters, Dr. Colleen (Eliezer) Quesada, Terri (Tim) Beavers, Lisa (Scott) Richards, PA, Jeff Henze (and Rebekah Struebing), Jay Henze, Dr. Connie Bills (and Roland Olson), Amy Peters, MSW, Jared Bills, and Isaac (Cassidy) Whitehurst; and great nephews and nieces including, Zach, Erica, and Matthew Beavers; Megan, Charlie, and Roy Henze; Peter and Benjamin Quesada; Juliann and Emily Peters; Joe Henze, and Riley and Charles John Whitehurst.
Scott was known as a caring man who would lend a helping hand, hard work, or good advice, along with sharing good times with those around him. He enjoyed great food, fixed "just so," training dogs to hunt, wood working, making toys for children, growing plants and trees, playing cards, and a hot game of pool. He made gleaning wild asparagus from country ditches and pheasant hunting (though not necessarily to shoot birds) an art.
In his younger days Scott worked on cars, in the oil fields, on shrimp boats, traveled to Mexico repeatedly, and even totally renovated a yacht in the San Diego Harbor.
Scott was always proud of where he came from and let his family know that he loved them and was proud of them in quiet ways.
He chose to live life on his own terms and enjoyed every minute of it.
A memorial service will be held at the Coleman Community of Christ Church at 407 East Adams Street on April 21st at 11 a.m. with a luncheon following at the Railway Family Center, 911 E. Railway, Coleman.
