Scot Van Airsdale

May 12, 1959 ~ October 7, 2019 (age 60)

Scot Van Airsdale, age 60, Ada, MI passed away Monday October 7, 2019 after a battle with Frontotemporal Dementia. Scot was born and raised in Neenah, WI as a diehard Badger and Packer fan.  Scot truly lived by the Vince Lombardi philosophy of “Winning is not everything, but wanting to win is.”  Scot was a winner with his incredible family and an over abundance of life long friends.  He was preceded in death by his father Hugh Van Airsdale. Scot met his wife Jann during their college years.  They had been married for 36 years; they have two amazing sons Benjamin (28) and Drew (25).  Scot touched many people in life as a respected sales man, dedicated husband and father, and a volunteer coach who helped develop dozens of young soccer players for over 12 years.  He was an avid bird hunter and raised incredible Golden Retrievers for hunting. Scot is survived by his mother Verla Jones (97), a brother Pete (Donna) Van Airsdale; and sisters Tara (Pete) Schipferling; Lori (Roger) Miller and several nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held on Thursday October 10th from 3-5pm and 6-8pm at the Metcalf & Jonkhoff Funeral Home, 4291 Cascade Road SE, Grand Rapids, with a prayer service beginning at 7pm.  In lieu of flowers, the family supports the Juvenile Diabetes Association and The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration.
