Scott Christopher Kreisher, 49, died from a brain bleed, Monday, Aug. 23, 2021.

Scott was born to Linda A Tomcavage-Kreisher and William J. Kreisher, May 23,1972, at Sunbury Hospital. At the age of 2, he moved with his family to California where he grew up. He returned to Pennsylvania in 1992 with his parents and wife-to-be.

Though he studied in college for law enforcement like his father, his career took a different path. He worked at various jobs such as

lifeguarding (both in California and Pennsylvania, including at the YMCA and Knoebel’s Crystal Pool), running a souvenir trailer on the NASCAR circuit and merchandising in a home improvement store. Most recently he was a department supervisor in the tools and hardware departments where he helped customers and friends find just what they needed.

Volunteering was always a part of who he was. Over the years, he worked with the Red Cross, Therapy Dog International, The Northeast Thing Association, his church, most recently Kyra’s Rescue (a turkey dog rescue organization) and finally with Gift of Life donor program.

He is survived by his wife, Denise Kreisher; his children, Truman and Molly; and many friends.
