Scott Gill

Scott Gill, 60 years old, of New Alsace, IN passed away on Thursday, April 1, 2021. Married to the love of his life, Sandy Phillips Gill, they have four children whom they raised to love God and family above all else. Scott coached many of the children’s sports teams including basketball and baseball and was always their biggest cheerleader. Whether he was working the chain gang for the football games, filling the gap as a coach, or cheering from the stands, Scott always supported his kids. He taught them how to use tools, how to work the log splitter and was looking forward to rebuilding his ’69 Camaro with them. His love of cars began when he raced his ’69 Camaro in high school. Later he and Ronnie enjoyed taking their cars to car shows. Scott was an avid fisherman and enjoyed going to Kentucky and Michigan to fish. He enjoyed hunting deer and also travelled to Maine to hunt bear and then a trip of a lifetime to Texas where he bagged a big-horned ram. Scott took pride in his vegetable garden, sometimes planting more than he could handle. He was famous for his hot peppers and enjoyed canning beans, tomatoes and fresh made salsa.

Reflecting on how they met, Sandy was a server and Scott worked in the kitchen at ShowBiz Pizza Place in Indianapolis. He stood out to her as he always walked through the front doors of the pizza place with his Ardizzone & Nalley’s purple gym bag and a purpose. Prior to dating she was tricked into dressing up as one of the stage characters and was lifted on to the back of a motorcycle which Scott happened to be driving. Holding on to Scott for dear life, Sandy began to enjoy the ride when she noticed little kids cheering her on. Fast forward to 38 years and four kids later, Scott loved waking the children up in the morning. Whether for school or for church, Scott would always find a fun way to wake them up. Sometimes he would sing and sometimes he would do the military march for them, but either way they woke up giggling and ready to start the day. Scott was known as the favorite uncle to all of his nieces and nephews; quite possibly because he and Sandy made up a song that told them this from a young age, but in reality, because he was a generous, kind, giving, and loving gentleman. Scott worked for Boyd Brothers Transportation where he’ll be dearly missed. He was a member of Knights of Columbus in Batesville and of the Central Indiana Bass Club. Scott was a proud member of the United States Army. He was also a key member of All Saints Parish, the Kingsmen, and E6, and proved himself to be someone to look up to. Scott converted to Catholicism while married to Sandy and was devout in his faith. He prayed the rosary every morning while driving to work and also shared this sacred time with his kids when taking them to sports in the morning.

Scott will be dearly missed by his wife, Sandy, and children Brooklynn, Courtney, Tyler, and Serena; his siblings Joyce (Ronnie) Hillard and Michael (Ellen) Gill; 21 nieces and nephews and several great nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Edward and Bonnie Price Gill and his sister Mary McElyea Vinson.
