Scott Petasek, 57, passed away Friday, August 26, 2022.  He was born September 25, 1964, the son of Robert Sr. and Carol (Unsin) Petasek.  On July 31, 1993, he married Shirley R. Baenen and together they have an incredible son, Ross Petasek. Scott was a loving husband and father.

Scotty was known for his easy-going nature.  He had an amazing appreciation for music. He enjoyed cooking, grilling out, and loved tailgating before Packer games.  Scotty also enjoyed kicking back and reading about Linus and the Peanuts gang and took in the sights and sounds of nature whenever given the chance.  Scotty never hesitated to tell people he loved them, and his great hugs and his laughter will be truly missed. In his later years, Scott struggled with AUD, however it did not define him.  Through everything, the power of love has remained constant.

In addition to Shirley and Ross, Scott is survived by his mother, Carol Petasek; his siblings, Robert Jr., Beatsy (Steve) Duchateau, Steve (Karen), Mark (Terri), and twin brother Andy (Sheila); brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Tom Plog, Josie (Dan) Cullather, Eva Liden, Madalene (Steve) Weber, Theresa (Michal) Thyne, Pete (Donna) Baenen and Maritsa Baenen; many nieces and nephews and many close and dear friends he collected along life’s journey.

Those who welcomed him into heaven include his father, Robert Petasek, Sr.; a sister, Deanna Plog and brothers-in-law, Jim Baenen and Kenneth Liden.

A Celebration of Scott’s Life will be held at a later date.  Proko-Wall Funeral Home is assisting the family and online condolences may be sent to
