By on August 14, 2019

Scott Scheffey went home to heaven on Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2019, at the age of 58.

A life-long Lancastrian and now Lititz resident, Scott married his high school sweetheart, Sandy Snyder, in 1981. They have two children: Megan Risser (wife of Mark), Lancaster; and Aaron Scheffey (husband of Rhonda), Lititz. Their grandchildren are: Jeremiah and Gabriel Scheffey. Megan and Mark were going to bless Scott with another grandchild in early November.

Scott was the youngest of five children to the late Bob and Bettyjane Scheffey: Mark Scheffey (husband of Jane), Williamsport; Drew Scheffey (husband of Karen), Lititz; Debbie Harding (wife of John), Kresgeville; and Carole Helm (wife of Brian), Landisville.

Scott spent his entire professional career working in Lancaster advertising and marketing agencies. He co-founded a firm in 1990. In 1996, he became sole owner. At the time of his death, Scott was president of Scheffey Inc. Scott gave much of his time and talents to many community boards and committees throughout his adulthood. At the time of his death, Scott served on the elder board of LCBC Church, and was a member of the Lancaster Bible College Corporation.

Scott was a faithful believer and committed follower of Christ. His life purpose of honoring and pleasing the Lord was lived out through his favorite Bible verse, Titus 2:7 (paraphrased), “Do good and show integrity.” Scott was also very much a loving husband, caring father, joy-filled grandfather, servant leader, and supportive friend.

Scott and Sandy are grateful to the teams at Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute (Lancaster), Penn Medicine (Philadelphia), and Hospice & Community Care (Mount Joy) for the care and compassion delivered during Scott’s cancer journey.

Services were held Aug. 10 at LCBC Church, Manheim in the main auditorium.
