With profound sadness, the family of Scott Allen Geiser, age 55, announces his passing at UPMC in Pittsburgh, on May 1, 2022. He was born in Bristol, PA, where he lived until his family moved to the family farm in Saegertown in 1977. A graduate of Cambridge Springs High School, he was an employee of Erie Hard Chrome for over thirty years. Scott will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 32 years, Melissa – his best friend and soul mate since the 6th grade.
Scott was raised to be a hard-working man on the family farm, and he carried that work ethic throughout his life. He was dedicated, dependable, had mechanical abilities, and was a natural at repairing things. If he didn’t know how to repair something, he would research until he found out how to fix it. When he was healthy, he took great pride in tinkering in his woodshed, decorating his home for the holidays, and landscaping, as he had a green thumb. He was looking forward to restoring his Corvette.
Scott was a dedicated family man. He enjoyed boating and fishing with the kids, bear hunting, and camping with his dad, brothers, and his boys. He loved football and was a die-hard Dolphins fan. He was known for being a prankster and funny guy – it was not unusual for him to pour cold water on his family when they were in the shower. Scott often had a baby in his arms, or a child on his lap on the tractor. He was always helping with homework or helping Mom with nighttime baths. His number one priority in life was providing and caring for his wife and children. Scott would help anyone at any time.
Scott leaves behind several treasured gifts from God, including his children – Kassi (Jon) Turner, Zack (fiancée Lexi), Brock, Haleigh, Jaxson, Marcus, and Hunter; his adored grandchildren – Ivan, Keegan, Adalynn, Grayson, and Chloe; his mother, Thelma (Kelly) Geiser of Saegertown; his brothers Joe (Kay), and Randy; his twin sister, Sharon; five nephews, a niece, and one great-niece; uncles and aunts – Peggy (Joe) Murphy, Ken (Laura) Geiser, and Elwood Kelly; his cherished in-laws Jerry (Papa) and Patricia Rudolph; sisters-in-law Shannon (John) Smith, and Heather Ferrick; a good friend, Lincoln Zilhaver; and many friends from Family Affair Campground. Scott and Melissa were also foster parents to Marisa, Aloura, Dustin, Ben, and countless other children for over 22 years. Many of those children have remained in close contact and will always be part of the family. His forever friend and faithful dog, Phoebe, is lost without him. Scott was preceded in death by his father, Edward Geiser.
There will be a private graveside service at Dunn Valley Cemetery in McKean.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the family at 10151 Oliver Road McKean, PA 16426.
