Scott Foslein, 49, Hudson, Wisconsin, died unexpectedly December 21, 2010 at his residence.
Scott was born January 14, 1961 in Minneapolis to Floyd and Frances (Wagner) Foslien. Scott was a graduate of Stillwater High School and attended Century College to pursue a degree in drafting.
Scott was united in marriage to Mary Jo Block on June 4, 2005 at Mt. Zion Lutheran Church.
He worked as a CAD draftsman with Helical Dynamics Engineering of Plymouth. Outside of work, Scott enjoyed woodworking projects in his shop, reading poetry, working on crossword puzzles, and reading Civil War history by David McCullough, a favorite author of his. Scott was an avid fan of the Minnesota Twins, and always enjoyed the rivalry between the Packers and the Vikings.
Scott listened to all kinds of music, from the ragtime music of Scott Joplin, to the rock-n-roll of Def Leppard. Scott was an avid fan of watching both Sponge Bob and the Simpsons. He also worked hard to win the further affection of his grandson, Logan, by telling him “knock-knock” jokes. Though Scott is gone, his smile, and the smiles he brought to others, will live on in the memories his loved ones hold dear.
Scott is survived by his wife, Mary Jo; his sons, Jon (Amber) Foslien and Bobby Foslien; his daughter, Samantha (fiancé, Josh Lockwood) Foslien; grandson, Logan Lockwood, and another grandchild on-the-way; his parents, Floyd and Fran Foslien; sisters, Sonja (Jim) Johnson and Peggy (Pete) Skinner; nephews, Billy Johnson and Floyd Johnson; stepdaughters, Amanda (Jean-Jacques) Erasmus, and Meghan Block; his former wife and mother to his children, Dianna Paulson; as well as numerous other relatives and good friends.
Scott was preceded in death by his grandparents, Reuben and Mildred Foslien and John and Ella Wagner.
Funeral Services for Scott were held Monday, December 27 at Mt. Zion Lutheran Church in Hudson. He was laid to rest at West Moe Cemetery in Alexandria on Monday. Billy Johnson, Floyd Johnson, Kevin Timm, Josh Lockwood, Jim Johnson and Pete Skinner had the honor of serving as his casket bearers.
