The Life of Mr. Scott D. Eisenhour
Scott D. “Ike” Eisenhour, 65, passed away peacefully at his residence on Wednesday May 17th, 2023 after a one-year-long battle with esophageal cancer. He was surrounded by his loving family, including his devoted wife Debra M. (Ramp) Eisenhour, who was his primary caregiver during his illness. The couple were married for 27 years and observed their wedding anniversary on May 4th. Along with his wife Debra, Scott is survived by his children: Matt Eisenhour, Jason Eisenhour, and wife Marki, and his “favorite daughter” Sarah Eisenhour. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Lelyn, Trevor, Chessa and Demi Eisenhour; as well as two nieces, Heather Eisenhour and Jenna Wiley and husband Adam. He is additionally survived by his brother Mark Eisenhour and wife Vicki. Scott is predeceased by his parents, Clair J. “Bud” Eisenhour and Gloria (Gemmill) Eisenhour.
Scott was born on October 31st 1957. He graduated from Dover Area High School in 1975 before embarking on a 36-year career with Columbia Gas. Scott was a man who was well respected and adored. He had a great sense of humor, strong work ethic and would always support and mentor those he worked with.
Scott’s love for sports can be traced back to when he was young, particularly for baseball. He joined the York County Central League in 1976 and played till 1990. Scott’s contributions to the league were recognized when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998 and named MVP in 1983.
Even though Scott had retired from playing baseball, his love for sports never faded. He remained an avid golfer throughout his life, regularly teeing off at Grandview Golf Course and participating weekly in a league at Briarwood Golf Club. Scott also golfed every year in Myrtle Beach, SC. He cherished the time he spent on the greens with his golf buddies, and nothing brought him more happiness than playing golf with his sons and grandson. Scott also cherished spending time in South Carolina with his 3 granddaughters; often planning trips to go see them whenever he could.
Scott was a proud member of the Vikings Club, and it seemed that he knew someone everywhere he went. He had a deep love for his home, evident in the immaculate landscaping that he had designed and built himself. On Sundays, he rooted for his favorite Nascar drivers and would visit several tracks to witness the action firsthand. He also enjoyed nothing more than relaxing in his pool on the weekends and after a long day at work.
We will all miss Scott in so many ways, not just for his enthusiasm and sense of humor but also for the kindness and love he showed his family, friends, colleagues and everyone who knew him.
