Scott Alan Grammer passed away on June 15, 2023 as he was in route to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN with the hopes to become a lung transplant recipient. He was the first of 5 healthy sons born in St. Louis, MO in 1960 to Bobby Lee and Juana Sue Grammer. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, and grandpa. Throughout his very full life, he was a very effective and positive influence on those around him. Scott had fantastic management and leadership skills and was also a lifelong learner. He achieved his BA in Labor Education at the National Labor College in Washington, DC. He was a member of Sheet Metal Workers Union Local 36 in St. Louis, MO as well as Sheet Metal Workers Local 24 in Cincinnati, OH. Scott worked at Jacobs Mechanical, Inc in Cincinnati, OH for the majority of his career. A colleague who worked closely with him said that Scott’s commitment and dedication to his job led to his promotion to increased responsibility with management and project leadership. Another employee who worked under Scott’s supervision said, “He was the best boss I have ever known.”
Scott had a deep and special ability to care for animals as well as people. Over his lifetime, he owned and bred horses, dogs, fish, and most recently, racing pigeons. He was a member of a local pigeon club. In his brief retirement period, he enjoyed many days tending to and watching his pigeons, studying their personalities, and giving them exercise by releasing them many miles from his home. Scott experienced great joy in his interactions with animals of all kinds. He had a natural disposition that included a caring attitude, extraordinary observation skills, and respect for living things.
Scott especially exemplified the qualities of excellent craftsmanship, leadership, and courageous living. He enjoyed taking on projects that offered a tough challenge, mastering them in creative ways and leading by example. Scott modeled the essence of lifelong-learning in that he consistently sought to understand how things work and make improvements. He showed that education is a continuous adventure and achieved his bachelor degree when he was 50 years old.
