Obituary for Dave Sconzert

Dave Sconzert of Arbor Vitae, WI passed away peacefully, in his home, on October 26th from complications of heart disease. He was 69 years old.

Dave was born in Manitowoc county in 1948. He grew up in the small town of Kewaunee, WI being the oldest of 7 children in the family. He attended Kewaunee High School. Growing up he spent many summers “up north” with his Grandparents where he came to love the great outdoors.

After High School Dave joined the Air Force. While attending a Valentine’s Day dance coordinated by the Air Force base and the local College in upstate New York, he met the love of his life, Nancy. They married in “secret” before he went back to serve during the Vietnam War. When he returned home they married again in a family ceremony.

Dave and Nancy moved to Northern Wisconsin shortly after his honorable discharge from the service. He and Nancy started their family. Dave attended Nicolet College and became self employed by starting a small engine repair shop. He was also employed by Frito Lay. Dave either volunteered or was employed at Minocqua Winter Park from its inception.

Dave was most proud of his Son, Aaron. He often joked, “why mess with perfection when you got it right the first time!” When Aaron was in school, Dave coached his baseball and cross country teams. Dave loved to spend time with his son and later his son’s family including Aaron’s wife Sara and his only Grandchild, Sadie. Sadie had Dave wrapped around her little finger. Nothing quite brought a smile to his face like she could.

In retirement Dave and Nancy traveled the country in their RV, mostly spending time out west for many weeks at a time. Dave’s happy place was in the woods or on the river. He enjoyed just about every outdoor activity and took advantage of the seasons. Dave was fortunate to have close friends who shared the same interests such as as skiing, hunting, and fishing.

Dave was lucky enough to have married his best friend and have her by his side to live life to the fullest. Material things were not important to Dave. In their 47 years of marriage, he and Nancy had many adventures together and many great stories to tell.

Dave is survived by his wife Nancy (Groesbeck) Sconzert, Son, Aaron (Sara) Sconzert and, Granddaughter Sadie Sconzert of Waldo, WI, Sisters; Holly Gronseth of Green Bay, Karen Richards of Green Bay, Jan (Lee) Bouchonville of Green Bay, Diane (Rob) Tegtmeier of Cedarburg, and his brother Steve Sconzert of Tempe, AZ, brother in law Paul DeGroot and many nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Hilary and Ellen Sconzert, his brother in law Lee Gronseth, and his sister Beverly DeGroot.

Friends and family are welcome to celebrate his life on November 11 at Minocqua Winter Park from 1pm to 5pm. Military honors will be held at 2pm.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made to Nancy Sconzert, as she will be distributing them to Lakeland Trail fund (MWP), Trout Unlimited, and the American Heart Association.
