Gleason, WI

Scott Alan Van Epps, 58, Gleason, Wisconsin passed away unexpectedly at home on the evening of May 16th, 2021. He was born to Robert and Nancy (Radtke) Van Epps in New London, WI on December 3, 1962. He attended school in Weyauwega-Fremont and went on to become a master electrician.In 2002, Scott married Sharon (Bauer). With Scott's children, Jessica and Jacob, and Sharon's children, Stephanie and Seth, they became a blended family of six. Scott valued time with his family and always planned trips and adventures for them to enjoy together.Scott's passions in life were hunting, fishing, working in the woods and his family. He spent countless hours prepping for hunts and was always welcoming others to participate in those hunts. He was an excellent fisherman and taught his kids and grandkids early on to also enjoy this pastime. Scott and Sharon built a house together "Up North'' in Gleason, WI from the ground up. Most of his free time was enjoyed on the property he loved--cutting wood, playing with his equipment, and feeding "his girls" (the deer). Time with his grandchildren was very important to him. They were the center of his world, and he was so proud of them all. Despite recent health issues, Scott was always happy and not much got him down. Scott's personality filled a room the minute he walked in. He was the most welcoming person, inviting anyone and everyone to join him on his next adventure. His famous phrases "It's all good," or "I am what I am, and I eats what I eats" would always set the mood to be light and fun. The Packers were his favorite team and if he wasn't watching them on Sunday, he had on NASCAR. Close friends and family knew he would never let you forget to do Sunday polka or Shake of the Day when visiting. He always had some inventive project he'd get us all roped in on.He is survived by wife Sharon Kay Van Epps; children: Jessica (Justin) Loritz, Jacob (Natalie) Van Epps, Stephanie (Preston) Knapp, and Seth (Chelsea) Stuebs; six grandchildren: Penelope, Ashton, Wyatt, Hadley and the Stuebs twins; parents: Nancy Van Epps, Robert Van Epps Jr., Joy Van Epps; siblings: Randy Van Epps (Karen), Daniel Van Epps (Barb), Colleen Van Epps (Robert), Sara (Nick) Herring and Amy (Justin) Cheek.Private services for Scott will be held, but a there will be a public visitation from 2:00-5:00pm at the Cline-Hanson-Dahlke Life Celebration Center in Weyauwega.
