Scott Fred Hilscher

Scott Fred Hilscher, age 54 of Markesan, fought a battle with cancer for five years and surrendered on Wednesday, March 2, 2022, at his home with his loving wife at his side.

Scott was born on March 21, 1967, in Ripon, WI, son of Lester and Mary Jane (Beyer) Hilscher Sr. He was united in marriage to Nikola Stobb on April 26, 1986, at Zion Lutheran Church in Fairwater. Scott was a big supporter of the kids’ and grandkids’ athletic activities.  He loved attending music events and concerts. Scott was an avid Packer, Badger fan and enjoyed attending WIAA Boys Basketball games with the guys and Auto Racing with John’s crew. The last five years he loved spending time at the camper with family and friends. In 1986, Scott began his service to our community by joining the Grand River Fire Department as a volunteer firefighter where he served as Captain and Treasurer. After 36 years Scott retired from Ripon Printers in 2021. He will be deeply missed by many.
