Obituary for Scott John Swaer

Scott J. Swaer, age 55, passed away unexpectedly on October 12, 2018 in his home in Coupeville, WA. Scott was born on June 22, 1963 in Oconto, WI to the late Bonnie (Crane) Swaer as the youngest of four children.

Scott married his soul mate, Debra Engelhardt, in the Bahamas in 2011; Debra preceded him in death on November 26, 2014 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Scott graduated from Oconto High School in 1981. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1981-1988, and received an honorable discharge upon completion of service. Scott hired into the Boeing Company in April of 1988 as an inspector on the 737 program. He later transferred to the 767 program in Everett. Scott also worked on the 777 and 787 programs before joining the AOG team where he traveled worldwide in support of customer’s aircraft. Scott joined AOG management in 2015 and continued traveling for Boeing.

Scott’s military career led him to eventually settle on Whidbey Island in Washington State where he enjoyed leisure life on the island, beach fishing at Admiralty Bay and Bush Point, scuba diving at Keystone Jetty, canoeing in Admiralty Inlet, and camping at Deception Pass. He lived on Whidbey Island for 30+ years in the heart of Seahawks Country but remained a dedicated Packers Fan.

Scott is described by friends and family as kind, caring, funny, sharp-witted, and a true friend who was willing to go out of his way to help anyone. As a young man growing up, he had a passion for wrestling, baseball and drumming on anything he could find. His adventurous nature even led him to shark cage diving. He was very generous and made many special friends along the journey of his life. Scott was loved and respected by many whose lives he touched and will be deeply missed.

Scott is survived by his three sisters, Judith Crane of Cypress, TX, Patricia (Paul) Dumas of Lena, WI, Charlene Baier of Oconto, WI; two nieces, Tressa (Garrett) Weber of Green Bay, WI, and Nicole Baier of Oconto, WI; two nephews, Joshua Baier of Oconto, WI, and Justin Dumas of Oconto Falls, WI; one great-nephew Mavrik Scott Weber; and one great-niece ShayLeigh Weber.

Scott's family extends special gratitude to Kim, Philip and Taylor Brotemarkle of Coupeville, WA for their kindness, patience, generosity, and hospitality during an extremely difficult time. The family also thanks Wallin Funeral Home and Cremation, LLC in Oak Harbor, WA for their patience and understanding in helping work through this emotional process. A special thanks to Attorney Molly McPherson for her knowledge and willingness to help the family work through this as well.

An informal gathering will be held at the American Legion located at 690 SE Barrington Drive, Oak Harbor, WA on November 25, 2018. All that would like to join in remembering Scott, reminiscing, and watching the Green Bay Packers play that day are invited to come.
