Scott A. Franzen, age 58, of Fredonia, WI, peacefully passed away on March 14, 2020 at his home due to complications of pancreatic cancer.

He was born on June 10, 1961 in Port Washington, WI; son of Donald and Anita Kringel Franzen.  Scott grew up in Grafton, graduating from Grafton High School, class of 1979.  He worked at Eddies Auto Service in Saukville after high school and then thirteen years for Leeson Electric in Grafton.

Scott was handy and could fix anything with a motor.  He enjoyed tinkering on cars and motorcycles, when he had a motorcycle.  He loved camping up north with family and friends as often as he could.  Hunting, playing with the dog, an evening out shooting darts with friends brought Scott joy.
