Scott Albert Mittnacht
Verona-Scott Albert Mittnacht, age 55, of Verona, died unexpectedly of natural causes on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at Meriter Hospital, Madison. He was born in Manitowoc, WI on June 25, 1957 to Paul and Genevieve (Nemetz) Mittnacht. Scott was united in marriage to Linda Webb on July 28, 1984 in Madison. Scott was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather (Papa) and was adored by his family. Scott and his wife Linda of 28 years enjoyed entertaining friends and family in their home where you could always hear his fun-loving laugh while telling a joke. Scott and Linda loved taking road trips together as they traveled anywhere from The Lake of the Ozarks to Montana to weekends at their cabin up north. They shared many fun-filled, hilarious road trips with their best friends, John and Emily. Scott’s game was golf. At an early age he acquired the love of golf from his father and mentor, as his caddy, at Odana Golf Course. He played many courses around Wisconsin but his home was Pleasant View. He was a joy to golf with and “Scotty” will be missed on the greens by all his golf buddies. Over the years he participated in various sports, enjoying many summers playing softball with his rowdy and close-knit ball club. Scott was a youth hockey coach for over 10 years, where he was admired and still remembered by his many players as “Coach”. He loved telling the story of when, at age 14, he and his schoolmate, Mark, rode their bicycles to Colorado Springs, camping and surviving on ice cream cones along the way. After graduating from James Madison Memorial High School he began his career as a carpenter at Marshall Erdman. He earned his degree in Architectural Design and was employed in CADD design by Arnold & O’Sheridan then Jaspal Engineering, before starting his own company, Midnight CAD. Among many projects he worked on, some of the most memorable were Monona Terrace, restoration of the Capitol in Madison and the Overture Center. For the past 6 years, Scott gave his time and talents to Flad Architects in Madison. During those years at Flad, he enjoyed his job and the many new friends that he made going to work everyday, something that he looked forward to and took much pride in.
Scott is survived by his wife, Linda of Verona; three children, Andrea (Erik) Norslien of Lewistown, Montana, Kari Nimmow of Menomonee Falls, Will Nimmow (fiancé Liz Koehn) of Madison; five grandchildren, Mitchell, Nadia, Seth, Gage and Madden; a brother, David (Vanessa) Mittnacht of Australia; two sisters, Marcia (Ed) Moscovich of Gloucester, MA, Paula (Jim) Vaughan of Lancaster; and many nieces and nephews.
