Scott Edward Henricksen
GRAND RAPIDS, MI. — Scott Edward Henricksen, age 52, of Grand Rapids, and former Marquette resident, entered eternal life Thursday, October 5, 2017.
Born February 26, 1965, in San Francisco, California, son of Peter Haines and Ann (Eden) Henricksen, Scott was raised in Marquette and graduated from Marquette Senior High School, Class of 1983. He enrolled at Northern Michigan University and received a Bachelors Degree in Marketing. Scott lived in Colorado and Florida for a while and then began a career in the automobile industry, in auto sales, advancing almost always to the top salesman, even at the acclaimed Auto Nation in South Florida.
An avid sports fan, Scott attended many professional games but loved to watch college ball or listen to his Tigers on the radio. Win or lose, he was a good sport, most of the time, unless he was playing cribbage with his brother-in-law. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his three nephews, whom he adored, and they adored him.
Scott was most proud of his long term sobriety and was recently considering a career change into counseling.
He was so grateful for all the help he received along his own journey and wanted to return the favor and help others. Scott was a big man with a huge heart. Any and all that knew him would have a story to tell that would make you “smile and shake your head at the same time”.
A loving son, brother, and devoted uncle, Scott is survived by his mother, Ann Henricksen of Charlevoix; his father, Peter Henricksen of Marquette; sister, Eden (Todd) Caudell of Iron Mountain; his three nephews, Zachary, Riley, and Owen Caudell all of Iron Mountain; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; and his grandfather, Leo.
The family will receive relatives and friends at the Swanson-Lundquist Funeral Home on Friday, October 13, beginning at 3:00 pm until the time of service at 4:00 pm. Rev. Leon Jarvis will preside.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed the local Al-Anon chapter.
