On July 14, 2014, our lives changed forever. Our son, brother, father, uncle, and friend exchanged his earthly body for his heavenly wings.
Scott was born on Sept. 2, 1957, in Williston, N.D., to Richard and Connie Krogedal. Little did he know, by the time it was all said and done, he would be the only brother of four sisters! He was fiercely protective of his sisters and deeply devoted to his family.
Scott was blessed with three daughters, who were his true loves. He was so proud of each of them, every single day. The light of his life, his granddaughter, brought him great joy and love. His thirteen nieces and nephews loved their "Uncle Buddy!" He always had an encouraging word and always praised their every accomplishment. Scott always made friends easily and had many friends!
One of his great loves was coaching. He loved working with kids and mentoring them on and off the field. Many of them remained friends with him through the years and are feeling loss right along with his family. He always wanted to make a difference in people's lives... and he did!
He was a son who made his parents proud. He was a brother who had the unconditional love of his sisters. He was a father and a grandfather that loved with all of his heart and was so proud. He was a friend to all who needed him. He could make you laugh and cry. He was a strong man. For his family, he would put on a strong face. To his friends, he was there for them. If anyone was feeling blue, he would make you smile. If you needed someone to listen, he was there. His passing leaves a hole in our lives that will never be filled. We know that he is keeping a watchful eye on all of us and is our angel waiting for us.
He was welcome into heaven by his grandparents, Louis, Gladys, Clarence, and Mabel. He is survived by his parents, Richard and Connie Krogedal; daughters, Athena, Tanna, and Stephanie; along with granddaughter, Jenika; and sisters, Doreen, Jill, Jennifer, and Deanna. He had thirteen nieces and nephews, seven great-nieces and great-nephews, numerous cousins, uncles, and a multitude of friends that considered him family.
Godspeed, Scott! Thank you for touching our lives, loving us, and being the wonderful person you were! May you have the peace you have longed for.
