Obituary for Scott Austin Gerecke

Scott Austin Gerecke, a resident of Novi, died at his home in the care of family on August 4, 2010 after a year long battle with cancer. He was fifty years old.

Born on September 5, 1959, the son of Clifford and Dorothy Austin Gerecke, Scott grew up in Howell where he attended Howell High School. On September 3, 1982, he married Kathy Johnson, the love of his life, and they were soon blessed with the births of two children, Adam and April.

For many years, Scott enjoyed working as a heavy equipment operator with Hayes Sand and Gravel in Novi. In his spare time he spent every opportunity he could in the out-of-doors, enjoying his passion--hunting. He fished and hunted deer, turkey, wild boar and more all over Michigan. He also loved watching high school and college football, games that were played by athletes who �truly played with passion and loved the game�, and never was he prouder than when he got to watch his son play for South Lyon High School. He loved his family dearly, and for that reason, he fought his cancer hard. Even when his illness prevented him from being active outside he continued to enjoy the simple, beautiful things in life--the nature and birds that surrounded his home and his family that he loved so much.

A Funeral Service will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 600 E. Main St., Brighton, on Sunday, August 8th, at 4PM. Friends may visit 1PM until the time of service. Memorials may be made in his name to the American Cancer Society. For further information please phone 810-229-2905.
