Scott Carl Schellenberger , Age 45

April 16, 1975 --October 20, 2020

Scott Carl Schellenberger, 45, of Verona, passed away suddenly, but peacefully in his home on Tuesday, October 20, 2020. Scott was born in Sparta on April 16, 1975, and was the son of Carl and Grace (Wilson) Schellenberger.

Scott was a proud 1998 graduate of UW-Madison with a degree in Computer Science. After a successful internship, he was offered a job as a programmer at Famous Footwear where he stayed for 10 years. In 2008, when given the choice to move to St. Louis and stay with Famous or move on, he decided without hesitation to stay in Madison, a city he genuinely loved and called home. In December, 2008, he started at Epic Solutions of Verona as an Integration Engineer. He excelled at his job and was truly loved by his co-workers and customers because of his fun, easy-going nature, his great laugh and more.

Scott was an avid golfer. The only reasons he wasnt out on a course each weekend between March and November were high winds, heavy rains or freezing temps, and even then, he would consider it! His golf clubs lived in the back seat of his Camaro which he also LOVED! Scott loved to travel. While working at Epic, he was given opportunities to go to Ireland and Australia, as well as all over the US. He was a lover of the arts and had awesome Overture Center seats he generously shared with friends and family. He loved sports, including Packers and Brewers, but he lived for UW sports: basketball, hockey, football, volleyball, mens, womens you name it, he supported it and with a passion!

He was very serious about his traditions: 7 Layer Jello Salad, Manheim Steamroller or Trans-Siberian Orchestra with Mom and Dad for Christmas and making them watch A Christmas Story and Scrooge, with Patrick Stewart every Christmas Eve, Overture Center with Melisa for her birthday, Baraboo Burger Company for March Madness and practically every Badger game, road trips or vacation with best friends, Pete and Chadi, Guys Day at Miller Park, South Mountain and LJs Pizza in Arizona, Pumpkin Pie crust to Sis, Jack and Coke NO LIME, Euchre with his awesome neighbors, Brad and Stephanie, Moms homemade pizza for Christmas Dinner, the Badger Steam & Gas Engine show camping organization, first in line on the exact day of a Star Wars movie release, religiously donating his O Positive blood every two months and so much more.

He is survived by his parents, Carl and Grace, sister, Melisa (Andrew) Skwor, niece, Ava, nephews, Ray and Leo, best friends, Pete Clark and Chadi Hayek, best neighbors, Brad and Stephanie Ahrens and so many relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ray and Ann Schellenberger and Cliffton and Dorothy Wilson, his Uncle Chet Wilson and his Aunt Jo Schellenberger.

A private, family service will be held on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 2PM at Redlin Funeral Home, and will be live-streamed on the Baraboo First Church of the Nazarene Facebook page. A celebration of life will be held in the spring or summer when we can get together, eat, drink, laugh, smile, cry, hug and love safely.

He was kind. He was generous. He was gracious and thoughtful. He was loved by so many and will be missed.

I am so sorry, words are simply not adequate. I was shocked when I was told of Scott's passing, and I am still shocked. Scott was a great guy, awesome to work with, he had a vast depth of knowledge, and a great sense of humor to go with it. He was humble, and an absolute joy to work with, and I will miss him greatly.

Scott is an amazing friend who always, always was fun to be around. He loved to laugh and wanted his friends to laugh along too. He was the one who made sure that the mercy peeps hung out every 4-6 weeks. (Along with Pete). He always talked about fun times with his family and was so proud of His Mom , Dad , Sister and family. Sadly we ran out of time.- He never did teach me how to make that famous 7 layer jello salad. I know it took days!! One of my best friends ever - always there as an amazingly smart interface guy who could bail me out of things I promised we could do , without asking the experts.... but most importantly my friend. And great friend to Dan, Cory, Tom , Steve , Shayne, and Mark and all the analysts at Mercy. I lost my hockey partner at the Janesville Jets games. Sweet Caroline will never be the same. Love you Scott. ❤️This is one of the hardest goodbyes ever.

Our sympathy to Scott’s family and friends. We met Scott when Brad and Stephanie moved next door to him.( we are Stephanie’s parents). Actually before, when I was painting and cleaning before they moved in. Burger Bar in Baraboo, he quickly acknowledged us and we enjoyed Badger games there. Seeing him at Brad and Stephanie’s regularly was always a pleasure and he was like part of their condo family. We’ll miss seeing him and as parents can understand the sorrow you are feeling. Rest In Peace, he will be missed.

I worked with Scott at Famous Footwear - he was always such a big help to me whenever I needed support from IT. He was very patient and always had a smile on his face. I remember that very well about him. My condolences to his family - may he rest in peace.

I'm so sorry to read of your loss. I can only imagine the heartache of losing an adult child. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all. I'm certain our Heavenly Father not only hears our prayers but answers them... often through those around us. He knows and loves us perfectly. Many hugs and tears for you.

Grace, Carl and family, Our hearts go out to you. We have always looked forward to seeing Scott and catching up for the year. We could start a conversation right where we had left off. He always helped me sort thru a situation with class and kindness. A true Gentleman. Please know that our thoughts are with you and we will take this time to remember the many adventures over the years we had growing up amongst one another at the BS&GC.
