Tribute & Message From The Family


SMITH, SGT. SCOTT T. Age 52 May 9, 2019. Beloved husband of Cheryl. Loving father of Jordan & Sydney. Dear son of the late Herman & the late June. Scott is also remembered by his "Hairy Kids" Hank and Gerti.

Scott will be remembered the most for his relentless sense of humor, which was a part of him that could not be quieted, even near the end of his life. He could make anyone laugh with his silliness, sarcastic comments, and observations of the world around him, usually in the form of a funny accent or dance. He was an epic storyteller. Also an avid outdoors-man, Scott loved fishing and hunting, especially among family, friends and his brothers at the police department.

Scott was a loving husband, having been married to his high school sweetheart Cheryl for 29 years, though they had been together for 35 years. Through good times and bad, they were side by side, enduring so much together and supporting each other through it all. Scott would often tell his children how much he adored their mother, and it was made more obvious simply in the way he looked at her.

He was a very supportive father to his two daughters. He never missed a moment to say how proud he was of each of them at many milestones throughout their lives, and always took the time to offer words of encouragement and wisdom with a little bit of humor thrown in, of course.

Scott was a dreamer; he loved to travel to the tropics and have adventures with family and friends, and plan the other destinations he might visit. But no matter where he was, he wanted to be at the family cabin on Lake Margrethe, in Grayling, MI. This was his favorite place in the world. There was never a dull moment during family vacations at the lake. Even just sitting on the porch or around a bonfire with his loved ones and two dogs, Hank and Gerti, that he adored very much, often the entire family would laugh until they were crying.

Although he often added humor to everything, Scott was also a deeply intelligent and sentimental person. He had a huge, open heart, and was massively loved by so many. He will be remembered forever as a kind, gentle, silly, smart, great and loving man.

Love, your daughter Sydney.
