Scott Stearns
June 28, 1961 - February 17, 2016

Scott Joseph Stearns, 54, of Fayetteville, Arkansas and formally of Fairbank, passed away on February 17, 2016 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Visitation will be on Saturday February 27, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (noon) at the Geilenfeld Funeral Home in Oelwein.  Services will then follow at noon with Pastor Duane Olsen officiating. 

Scott J. Stearns was born on June 28, 1961 in Waterloo, Iowa the son of John and Sue (Ohl) Stearns. He attended school at Waspi Valley and after graduating Hawkeye Tech Scott worked as a transmission mechanic for L & M Transmission.  Scott was an over the road truck driver.  Scott loved fishing and motorcycles. His greatest fishing trips were with his mother, where he tried to show her what she needed to know to be a good fisherman, but he did not like to clean the fish. His motorcycles began as a young man with dirt bikes on the farm. He enjoyed going on “Poker Rune” on his Harley.  He also enjoyed traveling and that is one of the reasons he enjoyed truck driving. He touched many lives and will be missed by all who knew him.

Scott is survived by his parents: John and Sue Stearns of Oelwein; two sisters: Cindee (John) Lichter of Galva, Iowa and Connie (Marty) Hillman of Maynard, Iowa and a brother Douglas (Theresa) Stearns of Dunkerton, Iowa; ten nieces and nephews and fourteen great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his grandparents.

Loosing a loved one is never easy, and to loose a child is the most devastating things any parent can go through. My sincere condolences to the family and friends, The Bible offers us hope for those that we have lost in death at John 5:28,29 tells us that one day soon all of those we have lost to death have a hope of a resurrection.

No heart breaks alone for God is always near. When a prayer is whispered God is always there to hear. When sorrow's overwhelming, He comforts tenderly. A single tear never falls that he does not hear.(Psalms 65:2) Sorry for your loss.

My condolences go out to Scott's family. While we had lost touch in recent years, Scott was a friend, and roommate for a while in the '80's. I will always remember the "toast to the seven Chevy's." We're all now toasting to you Scott!
