Scott Alan Thurman entered eternal life on Monday, January 10, 2022.
He was born on September 29, 1960 in Hammond, Indiana to the late Lee Edwin and Marjorie Thurman.
He entered the military in high school and persevered in obtaining his GED later in life.
Scott served honorably in the United States Marine Corps. He was stationed in Yuma, AZ from March 15, 1978 to June 13, 1980. Scott married the love of his life, Nancy McNeill, on June 15, 2019 in Hancock, WI.
A jack-of-all-trades, Scott worked as a mechanic, truck driver, and machine operator.
Scott loved spending time outdoors, fishing in Tomahawk earlier in life with his children and friends, and Pink Lake later in life with his wife and grandchildren. He treasured time spent with family and friends and shared his tradition of Christmas breakfast with the ones he held dear. He always opened his home for those in need. He was an avid wrestler and passed it on to his children. Drumming and music brought him joy.
Scott enjoyed auto racing including: watching, going down the track a few times himself, being a mechanic on a bomber/stock car, and sharing his enthusiasm for racing with go-karts and 4-wheelers.
Survivors include his wife, Nancy Thurman; children, Jeremy (Megan) Thurman of Green Bay, WI, Andrew (Tara) Thurman of Wisconsin Rapids, WI, Jennifer (Alexander) Timmons of Wisconsin Rapids, grandchildren, Madisson, Faith, Alayna, Colin, Adisyn, Ryley, Paityn, Charlea, Caleb, Olivia, and Jordyn, his sister Bonnie Bart, and nephews Robert Thurman and Daniel Thurman; and close friends: Wiliam (Lori) Blitz, the mother of his children, Cheri Heldt, Terrance Fletcher, and Shaun “Meat Thief” Metzen.
