Steve Scott, 58, of Stockton, Illinois passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at his home. He was born August 19, 1960 in Geneva, Illinois and was a 1978 graduate of Geneva High School.

Steve was active in the West Chicago Kiwanis Club, C.E.R.T., P.A.D.S., and volunteered for Special Olympics for around fifteen years. Steve was a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan who couldn’t have been happier when they finally won the World Series in 2016. He loved mowing his nine-acre lawn at “the farm” in Stockton, Illinois.
