Scott R. Westrup, age 43, of Hanover, Minnesota passed away surrounded by his family on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at Quiet Oaks Hospice in St. Augusta. Scott’s courageous battle with an aggressive form of cancer is over.

He was born on November 13, 1970 in St. Cloud, Minnesota and grew up in Cold Spring, Minnesota attending St. Boniface Grade School and ROCORI High School. During those years, he participated in sports and music in addition to academics. He was an original member of St. John’s Boy Choir and was cast in the title role of his class play as well as being a member of 2 National Champion ROCORI drum lines and co-captain of the football team.

Following High School, he attended The University of Minnesota Carlson School of Business graduating in four years with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing.

After graduation, he married his High School sweetheart Kim on September 18, 1993 at Mary of The Immaculate Conception Church in Rockville. Their marriage was blessed with two daughters: Megan and Brianna.

Originally making their home in Rockford, Scott worked for Fingerhut, Carlson Companies and most recently United HealthCare as a marketing manager. His passion, aside from providing for his girls, was attending their musical and athletic events at Rockford schools, taking them camping, fishing, boating and spending quality fun time with them whenever possible.

A dedicated Vikings, Gophers and Twins fan, he was often successful in fantasy leagues always keeping up with the latest sports news.

Music was also important in Scott’s life. Performing on stage with Club Bands since age 16, Scott was an accomplished drummer most recently performing his own group “Swamp Fox” in the West Metro area.

He is survived by his wife of twenty years: Kim; his daughters: Megan 18 and Brianna 14; parents: Ron & Anita Westrup; a sister: Molly (Bill) Schumal; nephews: Jacob (Tucker) and Charles Schumal; other relatives and friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial for Scott Westrup will be held on Saturday, January 25th at 11:00 A.M. at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church0 County Road #10, in Corcoran.

    I was so sorry to learn about Scott’s battle with cancer. He was my Supervisor at CMW when I joined the AT&T team. He was an excellent boss, and great person. He had an easy sense of humor, which was important when dealing with demanding clients. He created a supportive, fun, high-performing client team. I also had the pleasure of going to one of his band gigs out in St. Bonifacius – what a great musician! He always talked about both his daughters – he really loved his family. I enjoyed hearing about Megan and Brianna’s sports, and it sounded like you were both very good.

    I pray that you survive this loss, and grow closer together as you grieve. May you feel God’s peace, support and love.

    Kim, I was so very sorry to hear about Scotty’s passing. I had no idea about Scotty’s illness until I read his obituary in the Cold Spring Record. I will always remember Scotty fondly, his great smile and his big heart. Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Take Care. From your National Champion Drumline teammate.
