Scot was born Aug. 22, 1955, in Waterloo, the oldest son of Virgil E. and Lucile (Arneson) Hunemuller. He grew up in Waterloo with his three brothers, where he attended school. He graduated from West High with the class of 1973. During high school, Scot worked at Ridgeway Hardware. After graduation, he began working at Mid-West Motor Bearing with his father. Scot was united in marriage to Marsheila Stelter March 20, 1976, at the First Lutheran Church in Waterloo. The couple welcomed daughter Angela and son Brian into their family. Scot worked for many years as manager for ESCO Auto Supply Company in Cedar Falls and when that branch closed, he transferred to their Waterloo office as manager. He then worked for Klemp Supply in Waterloo and later purchased the business, renaming it Scot’s Supply, fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning his own successful business. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and bowling with friends and he had a lifelong passion for tinkering and working on cars. Scot enjoyed drag racing with close friends, with his wife by his side. On the weekends, Scot and his brother, along with Scot’s children, operated a recycling business where they were able to spend quality time with one another. Scot enjoyed staying busy. He always was a help to anyone who needed it and would do anything for anyone. Scot especially loved spending time with his family. He was more affectionately known to his friends and co-workers as “Little Keebler” and “Bolt Gnome.” For those who were lucky enough to know Scot, they know that his leaving too soon will never fill the void they feel in their hearts.

Scot is survived by his parents, of Waterloo; loving wife of 39 years, Marsheila, of Reinbeck; daughter, Angie Hunemuller, of Reinbeck and son, Brian (Megan) Hunemuller, of Waverly; grandchildren: Aiden Hunemuller and Kamden and Maklyn Hunemuller and grandson Kipten, due in December; brothers: Neal (Maureen) Hunemuller of Las Vegas, Nev., Jay Hunemuller of Norfolk, Va. and Chet Hunemuller of Story City; several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by both his maternal and paternal grandparents.
