Scott Andrew Caswell, 58, a lifelong Battle Creek resident, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on Monday, December 6, 2021.
Scott was born November 20, 1963 in Battle Creek, Michigan to Jerry James and Diana Ruth (Avramoff) Caswell. Scott was a 1981 graduate of Harper Creek High School and attended some college at Kellogg Community College.
Surviving are his twin sons, Cameron Andrew Caswell, and Connor Michael Caswell both of Kalamazoo; his father, Jerry James Caswell of Battle Creek; brother, Jerry Joseph (Michelle) Caswell of Lake Las Vegas, Henderson, NV, sisters, Angela Britt-Caswell LaPierre (Greg), Sherrie Rae Masters, Christy Ann Caswell all of Battle Creek; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and their families. Scott was recently preceded in death by his mother, Diana Ruth "Diane" Caswell on October 21, 2021.
Scott was a loving and dedicated father to his two beautiful sons, Cameron (24) and Connor (24). They were the center beam of his life and he gave everything a father could give to make them who they are. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he proudly and often mentioned. He truly lived his life through his children.
Scott worked at United Parcel Service (UPS) for 39 years, in which he drove various routes over the years in Hastings, Bronson, Coldwater, and Olivet. Scott loved his work and earned a key achievement, the "UPS Circle of Honor Achievement Award" for 30 years of safe driving for both on and off the job. He was also a proud member of the Teamsters Union.
Scott was one of the hardest workers there was, however, he always made sure to make time for the most important thing in his life, his family. As a youngster he loved athletic sports and played multiple sports himself including floor hockey, baseball, football, and wrestling. He later coached his sons in all their athletic endeavors for most of their youth including coaching at Wattles Park Men's Club where they played floor hockey and soccer. He never missed his son's games â no matter what the weather was or how busy work was, he found the time to make it out and support his kids.
Scott was a very simple man who loved nothing more than being in the comfort of his home or on the lake. He loved boating, watching movies, and always catching a show on the weekend or weekday with family and friends just because he could. He was constantly working on projects at home to enhance something â that he could only find a problem with. Whether it was renovating his home, improving his flower gardens, changing the landscape, cleaning the pool, or mowing his meticulous lawn â he loved being outside.
Scott was a force of nature, determined to provide for his sons and give them the life they deserved. He will be remembered as a father, son, brother, uncle, and friend that never would give up even in the toughest of times â he served as a rock for many.
His passion and integrity to those he loved was unwavering and to his friends being in his circle meant everything. He was supportive, loyal, kind, and always could be counted on for sound advice about many things.
His infectious smile, laugh, and the "Scottie sense of humor" will live on forever. His beautiful life will be forever cherished in the lives of his children, brothers, sisters, and friends, and everyone he touched â he will be truly missed in so many ways.
