Clarion Memorial Set for Rev. Scott B. Hauser

By | Local News | No Comments

By Bill Hearst

A gathering in remembrance of Scott will be held in the social hall of First Presbyterian Church, 700 Wood Street, Clarion PA 16214 at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 30, 2017.

The Scott Hauser Family

Rev. Scott B. Hauser entered the Eternal Kingdom as a good and faithful servant of the God he loved on Thursday, February 16, 2017. Scott, just 37 years old, succumbed to cancer at Froedtert Hospital, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, after a short but inspiring fight against angiosarcoma. He was surrounded by his family and close friends.

Scott is survived by his loving wife of almost 15 years, Lara, and four children, Simon, Jackson, Lillian, and Charles, who reside in Mequon, WI; his parents, Douglas and Judy Hauser of Mt. Pleasant, PA, Scott’s hometown; his brother and sister-in-law Eric and Erin Hauser and their children Hailey, Kyle, and Brianna, of Fairmont, WV; his brother and sister-in-law Rev. Brian and Ashley Hauser and their children Luke and Mary, of Knox, PA; grandparents Boyd and Ruby Shaw of Newry, PA; grandmother MaryBeth Hauser of Mt. Pleasant, PA; brother-in-law (and best friend) Rev. Scott Hoffman, his wife Ashlee, and their children Kylee and Natalee of Columbia, MD; father-in-law Rev. Dennis Hoffman of Edgewood, PA; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Scott was preceded in death by his grandfather, Franklin Robert Hauser and mother-in-law Juanita Hoffman.

Scott was the beloved pastor of Crossroads Presbyterian Church in Mequon and formerly served as the pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Clarion, PA and on the staff of Second Presbyterian Church, Indianapolis, IN. He attended Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA, where he received his Bachelors Degree in English and Business Administration in 2002. Feeling a call to pastoral ministry, he attended Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, where he received his Masters of Divinity. While enrolled in seminary, he simultaneously completed his Masters of Business Administration at the University Of Louisville through a joint degree program. Scott was in the process of completing his work towards a Doctor of Ministry degree at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary at the time of his death.

Scott’s great loves were for his wife Lara, who was his partner for almost 22 years; his four young children, who were his greatest joy; the Pittsburgh Pirates and baseball in general; the Church and the people God called him to love and serve; Kentucky bourbon and Milwaukee beer; time in God’s Creation, especially at his parents’ home and their family hunting camp, at Pine Springs Camp in Jennerstown, PA, and the Winds of Wyoming where he had a transformative backpacking trip in college through the Coalition for Christian Outreach. Scott was an avid hunter, fisherman, and golfer, pursuing those activities when time and circumstances allowed. Scott was known for his intellect, his wit, his playfulness, his gratitude, his genuine interest in others, and his quirky interests and hobbies, such as the writing of Aaron Sorkin and the art of beekeeping, which he pursued with a hive in his backyard. Scott was endearingly and frustratingly good at almost everything he ever tried, with the exceptions of dancing and singing. He was an especially gifted pastor, writer, and church leader, with a sharp financial mind and prodigious interpersonal skills. Scott liked to say that he had a high ego and low ego needs; that is to say, he knew well his own strengths and weaknesses and his self-worth was not tied to others’ perceptions of him. The most essential fact for Scott was knowing he was a beloved child of God, and a sinner redeemed by God’s grace. Most of all, Scott was deeply and widely loved, and returned that love abundantly. He had no fear of death and faced his illness with remarkable grace and endurance, caring for his wife and children with loving words and selfless action to the very end of his life.

A gathering in remembrance of Scott will be held in the social hall of First Presbyterian Church, 700 Wood Street, Clarion PA 16214 at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 30, 2017.
