Scott R. Rearick

1953 - 2018

Scott Russell Rearick (65) of Milton, passed away peacefully at home on the morning of November 4, 2018 surrounded by his loving family and returned to the Lord, escaping the ravages of cancer.


Scott was born July 31, 1953 in Lewisburg, son of Paul and the late Patricia (Kratzer) Rearick. He graduated from Milton Area High School in 1971 and attended Kutztown University and Pennsylvania College of Technology. On June 23, 1973, he married the love of his life, whom he met at age 13, Amy Louise Vincent. His passing ends a 45-year marriage. Scott and Amy enjoyed life together. With his youthfulness and witty humor, Scott was so fun to be around. They traveled to Wyoming’s Yellowstone, New York’s Finger Lakes, all over Maine and California, three-Hawaiian Islands, Kentucky’s bourbon trail, South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore and trips with friends to Alaska, Nevada, Canada, Nova Scotia and countless road trips. They had many more trips planned.


Scott is survived by his wife Amy, daughter Megan Crawford and her spouse Robert, son Nathaniel and his spouse Lindsey, his father Paul, sister and brother-in-law Paula and Ben Herbst, brother and sister-in-law Paul and Stacey Rearick, and in-laws Dudley and Helen Louise Vincent, grandson Kyler, and granddaughters Lydia, Addison, and Emerson.


Scott prioritized his family life over his career and never missed his children and grandchildren's school functions, ballet recitals, and sporting events. His greatest accomplishment was seeing the people his children have become and how they have contributed to society. He did his job. He will forever be happy. His job is done.


He enjoyed fishing with his son, grandson, son-in-law and fishing buddies, Ozzie and Short. He loved traveling with his wife, family and close friends. He also enjoyed Penn State wrestling, college football, good restaurants, bourbon and cigars, antiquing, keeping his yard looking good, and life in general.


He worked at Continental Can and retired in 2011 from ConAgra Foods where he held the position of Supervisor, Quality Assurance and gained the respect of his peers and direct reports and was known as a strong leader who helped coach and improve the performance of others. In retirement, he worked part-time at Ficks Hardware.


Scott supported his community by serving on the Milton Area District School Board, as president of Milton Area Little League, and VP of the Milton Booster Club. He was a member of the Union County Sportsmen’s Club. In 2006, he received the Super Booster Award for unselfish contributions of service.


Scott fought a hard, year-long battle with grit and bravery and with an extraordinary will to live. Scott will be missed but not forgotten by all who knew him. God is getting a spirited and witty angel to keep heaven more interesting.


The family would like to extend a warm thank you to all who were involved in Scott's care. His celebration of life service is being planned for Friday, Nov. 23, 2018 at the Wynding Brook Golf Club (201 Harvey’s Lane, Milton), 11:00am – 1:00pm visitation with service starting at 1:00pm followed by a lunch reception. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Scott’s memory to the Milton Booster Club, PO Box 13, Milton, PA 17847.

RIP prayers for your family

Kevin and I send our deepest sympathy to the entire family. Helen Keller has been quoted as saying, “What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, For all that we love deeply, becomes a part of us.” This is so appropriate for Scott! Embrace your treasured memories, especially during the difficult days ahead. Sending hugs to surround you for comfort.
Kevin and Karen Fry

Sorry to hear about Scott. A really good guy

So sorry for your loss. Scott was a great guy and friend.

We are riminded of the story "The Dash".
It is not the day of our birth or the day of our death that is important
but the dash in between which represents our life.
Scott left a legacy to be proud of for sure. His love for his family and community
will never die. His accomplishments will be
seen through you Amy. You were his rock and his true love. His accomplishments can be seen through his
strong and amazing children and grandchildren. I wish I had thanked him for
the loving and strong father figure he was to our son Bob. He taught him the importance of
family by example.
It was a pleasure and honor to know you Scott.
Ron and Deb Lloyd
