Scott Spurbeck

Scott David Spurbeck, age 49, died Saturday, October 24, 2020 in Rochester after a lengthy illness.

Scott was born on February 6, 1971 in Rochester to David and Carol (Ronningen) Spurbeck. He graduated from Byron High School and was a hard-worker for thirty years at Simoniz/Mister Car Wash.

Scott was a wonderful son, a loving brother, uncle, great-uncle and life-long friend.  He was a gentle soft-spoken, quiet soul, with a great sense of humor who always put others first.   Scott enjoyed fishing, being outside, sports, spending time with his great nieces and nephews, and with friends, many he had known since grade school.

Scott is survived by his father and mother; sisters, Deb Spurbeck and Cathy (Tom) Brooks; niece, Lexy Spurbeck; nephews, Adam Threinen, Jason Spurbeck, and Brandon Threinen; great nieces, Brooklyn Threinen and Claire Threinen; and great nephews, Greg Threinen, Luke Threinen, and Declan Threinen.

Scott is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents; paternal grandparents; uncles, Steve Kispert and Richard Ronningen; aunt, Marie Insco; brother-in-law, Jim Threinen; and cousins, Jay Kispert, Jeff Ronningen, Nick Ronningen and Lindsey Ronningen.

The family thanks caretakers Deb Jones and the doctors and nurses of Adara Home Health and the Mayo Clinic Hospice Team for their loving care of Scott throughout his illness.  They also thank Scott’s many family and friends for their support and prayers.

  8. David, my deepest condolences on the loss of your son Scott. Turns out I knew him as a regular car wash customer and his positive energy let you know that you were going to get a good clean car. I have a 28-year-old special son who works at ABC. I continue to be amazed each day about how much he teaches me about life. Our prayers will be with you and Carol and your family

  12. Dear Spurbecks,

    I am very sorry for your loss. I knew Scott as a customer of mine at the Bar (HyVee 37th Street). And although he stopped in only a handful of times through the 3½ years I worked there, I was always excited to see him when he did. I can vividly recall him smiling when I’d ask him what he was gonna’ have to drink, seeing as he really only had two favorites (Rum&Coke or a Tall Coors Light). Although humble and quiet, he lit up when asked questions, or if engaged in conversation with other people at the bar. He will be missed.

  13. So sorry for the loss of your son. Loosing a child is so hard. We can really empathize with you. May God bless you and be with you always.
