Scott E. “Scotty” Prentiss

MADISON-Scotty Prentiss, age 36, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, June 28, 2014.

He was born on Jan. 20, 1978 in Los Angeles, Calif., the son of Andrew and Jane (Iverson) Prentiss. He began his culinary career in Los Angeles and followed his passions with a move to Madison where he also enjoyed the outdoors, camping and the peacefulness of nature. Scotty worked at various Madison restaurants and enjoyed expanding his culinary knowledge.

It was in Madison where he met the love of his life, Monica Slagel and they were married on June 2, 2007 in First Lutheran Church in Middleton. Two years later they were blessed with their first child Oliver in 2009 and Natalie in 2011. It was then he found his true calling and was an outstanding father. In the last year of his life, which he regarded as the best, was when he stayed at home with the children, cared for them and loved introducing them to new and interesting experiences.

In addition to his wife Monica, Scotty is survived by his children, Oliver Jay and Natalie Mary; his parents, Andrew and Jane Prentiss; a brother, Blaine Prentiss; paternal grandmother, Iva Prentiss; maternal grandmother, Joy Hartwick; his in-laws, Jay and Priscilla Slagel; a sister-in-law, Elizabeth Slagel; a brother-in-law, Brian Slagel and many friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials would be appreciated for an educational fund to be established for his children.
