He was preceded in death by his son, Donnie I. Wishard, his father Maldon Cletcher Wishard, and maternal grandparents Robert and Dorothy West. Scott enjoyed spending time with his family. He was especially excited to support his wife in the opening of Wishard’s Fit to a Tee. He could always be found by her side encouraging her. He was always her biggest supporter in every adventure. Scott was a man of faith who put trust in God when faced with many obstacles throughout his life. He was a dedicated and devout member of the First Christian Church in Mattoon, IL. Along with his wife, Scott found peace and fellowship with his church family. Scott graciously provided his time helping those in need and doing what needed to be done for the greater good. He was the man behind the scenes who never wanted credit for his good will. Scott was a loving husband, father, and papa; his grandchildren were the light of his life. He loved taking care of his dear Brittany. His presence will be missed by many. His life here on Earth has come to an end, but we have peace knowing his eternal life has begun in Heaven. Dust to dust and ashes to ashes his body will be committed back to God. Memorials in Scott’s honor may be made to the First Christian Church.
