Our beautiful son, Scott, declared at age 6 that he was “a different sort” of boy. No truer words could describe his unique character. Therefore, a standard obituary will not capture the essence of who he really was to those who loved and knew him.
As a young child, Scott loved to explore nature until he discovered his grandparents “junk drawers” and attics, where so many treasures were to be found. This fascination explains his later interest in creating Steampunk jewelry and crafts out of old gears and trinkets. He loved sharing his creations and enjoyed his artistic passion with his lifelong friend, Connie Johnson of Watertown.
In Middle School, Scott discovered Punk Rock, learned to play the guitar in high school, and loved playing in bands with his close friends for several years. He recently connected with fellow band members and enjoyed practicing with them. It was a great outlet for his musical aspirations.
It’s impossible to capture in words who Scott really was because he struggled with lifelong mental illness and opioid addiction which he tried so hard to overcome. When he was young, Scott would kneel with his Grandma Aggie after she prayed the Rosary each night, and they would recite the following verse by Albert Camus:
Don’t walk in front of me,
I may not follow.
Don’t walk behind me,
I may not lead.
Just walk beside me
and be my friend.
Those words are simply the best way to summarize the life of a son, brother, uncle, and friend who had a kind, compassionate heart, a creative mind, a great sense of humor, and was always willing to help when you needed him. He tried so hard to be a good friend to everyone he loved. These are qualities worth remembering!
Scott is survived by his parents Kent and Kathryn Wickmann; brother, Brett (Laura) Wickmann; niece, Ashleigh and nephew, Blake and his dear Wickmann and Lodl aunts and uncles, and cousins.
Preceding him in death are his paternal grandparents, Dorothy and Lincoln Wickmann; maternal grandparents, Hilbert and Agnes Lodl; and uncle, Tom Lodl.
