Scott Brolsma Obituary, Death – Scott Lee Brolsma, 60, of Noblesville, Indiana, lost his fight with cancer on March 29, 2023, and he passed away at home with his family by his side. His parents, Allen and Leah (Seaton) Brolsma, both passed away, and he was born on April 29th, 1962, in Crookston, Minnesota. On June 9, 1984, he wed his high school girlfriend, JoAnn Finkenbinder.
Together, they had two daughters, Nora and Claire, of whom he was justifiably proud. After completing high school in 1980, Scott worked on the Capistran Farm and was later encouraged to pursue a degree in agronomy at the University of Minnesota Crookston and North Dakota State University. Scott was grateful for the opportunity to work in agriculture for so long and for the chance to meet so many interesting individuals.
Scott had incredible athletic ability. He swam with the Noblesville Adult Swim Team, competed in a half Ironman in 2021, and played hockey all through high school and college. Scott was active in the community and on the boards of the Noblesville Swim Club and Friends of Central Pool, and he encouraged his children to pursue their passion for swimming.
Scott’s greatest joy in life was taking his family on adventures across the country. He often took his family to Big Sky, Montana for vacations and ski trips. Scott was one-of-a-kind because of his boundless curiosity, stubbornness, interest, decisiveness, and sense of humor. Scott is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, JoAnn Brolsma; their two daughters, Nora (Dan) Farrell and Claire (David) Maxwell; grandson, Carter Scott Farrell; siblings, Bob
(Kathy) Brolsma, Jim (Jan) Brolsma, Nancy (Wayne) Capistran; father and mother-in-law, Glen and Marlys Finkenbinder; brother-in-law, Mike (Brenda) Finkenbinder; sister-in-law, Carol (Jim) Lehman; and many nieces and nephews. The entire family adores Scott very much. The memorial service and celebration of life will be held in Flanner Buchanan – Hamilton Memorial Park (Prairie Waters), 4180 Westfield Road, beginning at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 5, 2023.
