March 25, 1957 – July 11, 2022

Scott “Doc” Borseth Stedje

Age 65, of Buffalo, Minnesota passed away suddenly on July 11, 2022 due to heart disease.

Scott was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Clifton and Donna (Borseth) Stedje on March 25, 1957. The family moved to Buffalo, Minnesota in 1965, where Scott resided until his passing.

He graduated from Buffalo High School in 1975.

Scott enjoyed spending time outdoors, both in his career and with his many hobbies. He started his career in the electrical construction field after graduation. Scott was part of the crew that helped to build the CPA/UPA power line through Minnesota in the mid-1970s. He was a member of the IBEW Local Union 160, had over 40 years of construction experience, and had recently retired as a General Foreman for Donovan Electric.

Scott loved all things involving engines, including cars, both new and classic, motorcycles and snowmobiles. He was proud to have restored his dad’s first car, a 1931 Model A Coupe. His friends gave him the nickname “Doc,” which came from his wide range of knowledge about many topics.

In his younger years, Scott took many snowmobile trips to Northern Minnesota and Michigan’s UP. Some other favorites included attending drag races at BIR, “Back to the 50s” Car Shows at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, the Iowa Freedom Rally in Algona and many motorcycle trips around Minnesota and surrounding states.

Scott is survived by his loving family: parents, Clif and Donna Stedje; sister, Laurie (Paul) Meyer; brother, John (Marcy Stroman) Stedje; girlfriend Jodi Cummings and her family; nieces, Rachel (Judd) Stevens and Danielle Lachermeier; nephew Erik (Kerstin) Meyer; and many relatives and close friends.

A visitation will take place on Thursday, August 25th from 5:00 – 6:30 PM at The Peterson Chapel, Buffalo.  Celebration of Life will be at 6:30 PM.

    Any life that Scott touched made that person better. His passion for common sense, the electrical industry & doing the right thing will leave a legacy forever.

    Very thankful to learn from a legend. God speed bud.

    I was so very fortunate to be “mentored” by Scott for 25 years, even thou I was technically his supervisor🤫. I quickly understood why his friends called him Doc.

    He made everyone’s lives he touched better. He asked tough questions and pushed for answers. His passion for his trade will be tough to recreate going forward. Legend doesn’t do justice to describe his accomplishments in my mind. His legacy will live on thru stories only those who were fortunate enough to spend time with him know. God speed brother.

    Burnouts at BIR for you in a couple weeks. Keep an eye out😎
