Scott Phillip Stevensen was born September 24, 1960 in New Ulm to Phillip and Marion (Meurer) Stevensen. He was a 1979 graduate from Nicollet High School. On April 25, 1987, Scott was united in marriage with Kim Grunst at the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Nicollet. Scott was a devoted employed for over 35 years with the Lloyd Truss Company in North Mankato. Besides his work, Scott had a variety of passions and hobbies that brought him great joy in life. From his youth on, Scott dearly enjoyed sports. Besides his involvement in high school sports, Scott continued to play ball on numerous teams throughout his entire life where lifetime friendships were made. Scott always had a deep love for the outdoors as well. He predominantly enjoyed hunting, but any time he got to spend outdoors was cherished. Many wonderful memories were made over the years with friends and family on numerous hunting excursions, deer camps, and pheasant hunting trips to South Dakota. He also enjoyed his time spent training his four legged hunting partners Dusty, Jiggs, Jake, Rosie, and Casper. Scott always took pride in what he did, but he took tremendous pride in his recent five years of sobriety. Scott was an active supporter of the Nicollet Conservation Club, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, and also volunteered with the Nicollet High School trap shooting team. Although Scott's passing seems sudden, wonderful memories made with him will stay in the hearts of all who knew him best.
To honor Scott's love of the outdoors, in lieu of flowers, take the time to share an outdoor experience of hunting or fishing with a child.
A heartfelt thank you from the family is extended to the entire dedicated staff at St. Croix Hospice for their loving care and support.
