SCOTT DRISCOLL
June 14, 1966 ~ August 3, 2018

Scott David Driscoll passed away on August 3rd, 2018 with his family by his side at the young age of 52. For thirteen months, Scott battled bravely to try and beat his cancer diagnosis. He tried every treatment available and held out hope that he could win the battle, not wanting to leave his family and friends, and all the work he felt was unfinished. Scott's faith in Jesus was important to him and he leaned on his faith through out the last eight years and even more the past 13 months.

Scott was born on June 14th, 1966 in Davenport, Iowa to his parents, Jim and Joanne, and brother, Chris. He eventually moved to Madison, WI where he graduated from Edgewood High School and went on to attend and graduate from University of WI-Whitewater. He spent most of his career in technology and product management where he most enjoyed the relationships and collaboration that came with bringing innovative products to market.

Sadly, Scott was preceded in death by his son Quinn. He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Kelly, who was the love of his life, and his beautiful daughters, Kaylyn and Colleen. Additionally, he is survived by his loving parents, Jim and Joanne, brother, Chris, and his many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins. He is also survived by the countless others he considered family.

After the loss of his son to an undiagnosed heart condition, Scott established the Quinn Driscoll Foundation to raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest in kids, to raise funds for AED's to be placed in public locations and to provide free heart screenings for local youth. His passion and commitment to preventing another family from losing a child to SCA has resulted in saving several lives in his local community. It's his wish that those efforts will continue and people will honor his memory by continuing the work he has started.

Family was Scott's number one priority. Much of his time with his kids included coaching them and countless local youth in baseball, football and softball. He also enjoyed cheering them on as they played basketball and volleyball and enjoyed countless band concerts. He loved being on the field and through sports, teaching his kids and his players some of life's most important lessons. His sense of humor was well known and his ability to find a connection with anyone he talked to was one of his many gifts. He truly valued his relationship with people. One of his favorite sayings was "it takes a village", and he used this to highlight the importance of family and friends coming together to take on all that life brings.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 11th at City Bible Church -14313 SE Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver, WA 98684 at 4:00p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Quinn Driscoll Foundation at quinndriscollfoundation.org or a Go Fund Me account has been set up to support Scott's daughters as they pursue their graduate degrees in Clinical Social Work and Physical Therapy.
