Scott Krisak, 64, of Lake Park, MN passed away peacefully on May 22, 2023, after living with Pancreatic Cancer for 2 years. Scott demonstrated the human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.
Scott was born on December 20, 1958, to Andrew and Mildred in Minneapolis, MN. After graduating from Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis, MN he went on to kick off his career in the Airforce. Scott retired from the Airforce in June of 1995. He then pursued multiple jobs in auto repair until he eventually purchased his own shop; Bemidji's Best Auto.
Scott married Deb (Keehr) his high school sweetheart on May 27, 1977, and from that union they had Theresa Krisak. In December of 2015, Deb passed away from complications from Peripheral Artery Disease.
Scott remarried on April 10, 2017, to Jodie Goetz. Jodie has two children, Natalia Steen and Courtney Oak, who Scott treated as his own.
