Scott Steisel, as he was commonly known, passed away on December 29th, 2018 doing what he loved best, meeting new people and riding his 2006 Harley Road Glide through the beautiful and serene Arizona Desert landscape.
Scott joined the City of Mesa on November 17, 2014 as a Construction Inspector I. His expertise was in buildings and related systems. Scott had over 35 years of experience as a carpenter as well as experience working in the commercial and residential home building field. Prior to joining the City, Scott had his own construction consulting firm and was a construction superintendent for several development firms. The job with the City of Mesa was one of Scott’s crowning achievements, of which he was most proud.
Scott is survived by his twin little sisters Catherine and Cynthia Steisel, his brother in law, Loren Miller, his niece Heather Mincy, his niece Reshea Rebenstorf and her husband Jake Rebenstorf, and his 4 great nieces and nephews, Alexander Steven Valenzuela, Bobbie Lynn Riley Stegall, Logan Robert Rebenstorf, and Brayley Shea Williams.
While Scott was technically the uncle to Heather, Reshea, Alex, Bobbie Lynn, Logan, and Brayley, he gladly became the father and grandfather that he felt they needed. From coaching sports teams to attending every recital and tournament, to giving advice, comfort, and protection when it was most needed, he was truly their father and grandfather.
