Scott M. Ott, age 48, of Kaukauna, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes while he was doing something he loved, hunting with friends and family. He was born on April 11, 1971, son of Norm and Judy (Van Heuklon) Ott. He married Beth Juncer on August 5, 1995.
Scott was a teacher at Gerrits Middle School in Kimberly, teaching 8th grade social studies. He had a passion for helping children and was a well-respected educator. Scott was a true outdoorsman, enjoying anything from hunting, fishing, and gardening or planting trees. He was always positive, always up for a good time, and always willing to lend anyone a helping hand. Scott loved traveling with his family and spending time with them at his favorite place, Pelican Lake. He coached his kids in sports and was there to support them in whatever they needed. If he wasn’t with his family or outside, you could find him enjoying a good cup of coffee in his favorite mug. His sense of humor, wonderful personality and loving character will be deeply missed.
