Scott D. Fisher, 61, of Chester Springs, PA, died on May 15, 2021 after a short illness.
Scott loved spending time with his family, sitting at home, and watching an old movie. Friday was pizza night: he would text emojis for pizza and beer to Elaine, his wife of 28 years, and she would reply “YES!” Scott also loved to take Elaine and their children, Chloe and Julia, camping. Blowing out a grease fire, he earned the name, “Windy.” He melted a pair of shoes, too – while wearing them. He enjoyed smelling like campfires.
Scott exuded warmth and compassion. His laughter was contagious and his gratitude for his friends unmatched. Scott’s boundless enthusiasm for his family and friends, for music, and for simple pleasures made him a man loved by many.
Scott played with a number of tribute bands including an Elvis impersonator, when he was younger, and River of Dreams (Billy Joel.) He first made music on his computer as The Floating Texture Ensemble; his last band was Yesterday's News which played Blues, Soul and Rock & Roll all over Chester County.
One band groupie called him “Scotty the Hotty,” a label that stuck. He often recalled memories of his youth playing at bars before he was “legal.” His favorite creative outlet was the bass – the throbbing heart of every rock band. During COVID, Scott sorely missed making music with friends, and he often played along to a song with no instrument in hand.
Scott is survived by his wife of 28 years, Elaine (nee Pesto), 56, his two children, Chloe, 22 and Julia, 20, his mother Doris (nee Gibson), 87, and many extended family members. Scott was preceded in death by his father, George Fisher.
We grieve deeply for our beloved husband and father. Perhaps prophetically, Scott posted this verse by Shel Silverstein last year:
“So come and walk awhile with me
and share the twisting trails and wondrous worlds I’ve known.
But this bridge will only take you halfway there.
The last few steps you have to walk alone.”
We will miss you, Scott, until we meet again.
A Memorial Service for Scott will be held at 11 am on June 5, 2021 at Trinity Episcopal Church, 966 Trinity Lane, King of Prussia, PA.
