Scott A. Schesser, 61, of Manchester died on October 29, 2022 due to complications attributed to pancreatic cancer.
He was born in Keene on February 3, 1961 to Robert and Elizabeth (Gage) Schesser, where he lived until graduating high school. Scott lived in West Lebanon briefly, later landing in Manchester in the mid 80’s and marrying, Donna, in 1989.
He most recently worked as a Food Services Director at Whittier Healthcare in Newburyport, MA. Prior to working at Whittier, he also worked at the Elliot Hospital, Villa Crest Nursing Home, Bahtsi’s and Classics Restaurant & Lounge, all in Manchester.
Scott loved to cook for everyone and was passionate about the food he prepared and disappointed if your plate was not empty after a meal. He attended many baseball games, golf tournaments, X-Country meets and body building competitions, and let’s not forget the band and orchestra concerts, to cheer on his kids, Dan and Sydney. He loved watching the Patriots, playing a round of golf on the weekend and walks at nearby Lake Massabesic with his family including the Laborador retrievers over the years, Damien, Roscoe, Tana and Sadie. Though he hated to admit it, Scott had a big heart for his latest grand fur baby, Beau. Scott vacationed at York Beach, ME each year since being a baby and carried on the tradition with his wife and kids.
Friday’s were for pizza, half a club sandwich and a few beers at Chelby’s.
He was predeceased by his parents and two brother-in-laws, Daniel Lamoureux and Timothy Pratt.
He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Donna (Graham) Schesser of Manchester; two children, Sydney Richardson and her husband, De’Von, of Lincolnton, NC and Daniel Schesser and his companion, Emma Thomson, of Manchester; and a granddaughter, Mari Richardson.
Scott is also survived by three siblings, Michael Schesser and Barbara Pratt of Keene and Kathy Lamoureux (and Ed) of CT; Penny Gage (aunt) of Yarmouth, ME; his mother-in-law, Claire Graham; and brother-in-law, Derek Graham; along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
