Scott “Scooter” Rennie


Scott “Scooter” Donald Rennie, 61, of Pine Island, passed away on June 15, 2023. Scott was born July 8, 1961, to Carol Sue Thill and Donald Rennie in Madison, Wisconsin. After attending several schools during primary and secondary years in the area,  Scott graduated from Pine Island High School in 1979.  He attended the JATC Apprenticeship program and was a proud member of the IBEW #343 for 42 years. He worked for Adair Electric before retiring in 2018.

Scott married Lorri Ronningen on May 15, 1982 and made their  home in Pine Island before retiring to Texas.  They have two daughters, Carol David (Brian) of Pine Island and Cathy Jones (Travis) of Rochester. Scott enjoyed playing pool and bags, camping (eventually), cooking, fishing, telling stories (and retelling stories), spoiling his grandkids, reciting movie quotes, watching Reacher on repeat, and bragging about his kids and grandkids to anyone who would listen.

Scott was predeceased by his mother Carol and his granddaughter Lilly. He is survived by his wife Lorri, his father Don, his children Carol and Cathy, and his grandchildren Olivia, Lucas, and Julien.

A celebration of life will be held on July 8, 2023, at Mac’s Park Place in Mazeppa, MN from 11-3 p.m.

  5. Lorri,
    I only got to know your “silly” Scott for just a little bit after last year’s summer picnic for the IBEW. I know I talked to him different times on the phone, but getting to meet him face to face, and being asked to pull up his pants was the thing I’ll remember most! (maybe I’ll remember watching him walk past with his arms full, wondering “did he really just ask me to pull up his pants? And who WAS that??”….and then watching him continue to walk and eventually seeing his shorts actually fall down! – He wasn’t kidding..he needed his pants pulled up!) – Then, later, in January when you came to the Eagles pancake breakfast with your grandchildren, I spotted him and said “hey, aren’t you the nut that asked me to pull up your pants at the picnic?!?” Gosh, the laughter that erupted! Everyone said that’s how he was. – I’m sorry he couldn’t have kept those silly, fun thoughts in his mind. I’m sorry his light couldn’t continue to shine more in this world. You are loved and cared for. Your entire family is. – I am so sorry. I know he will be missed. I will miss him. – Colleen Marks, IBEW

  6. To Scott’s family – this is Brenda and Becky, your neighbors across the street from you when you lived in Kasson. Becky used to babysit Carol and Cathy when they were little. We are so sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. Our prayers are with all family members.
