Who Was Scott Grinder ?
Newell Scott Grinder was born on the May 25th, 1953 in Brookeville, PA. He was the son of the late Newell Ralph Grinder and Sara Elizabeth Grinder. Scott worked as a baseball umpire in Minor and Major League Baseball. He then went on to work at Robinson Industries and later launched into full-time ministry as the President of Christian Sports International.
Scott devoted his life to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ through Christian Sports International, volunteering in his church community (Harmony-Zelienople United Methodist Church) and through loving each individual he encountered. Scott loved watching sports games, especially baseball, spending time with his wonderful friends and he loved supporting his children and grandchildren in all they do.
Of all the things Scott enjoyed in his life, loving and being with his beautiful wife, children and grandchildren was his greatest joy.
To know Scott was to know the kindness and loving heart of God. Scott will be deeply missed, however his impact and legacy will carry on for generations to come through his family and the numerous lives he has touched.
He leaves behind to cherish his memory and carry his life message his beloved wife, Lynn Grinder of Zelienople; his children, Michael Grinder and his wife, Shannon Grinder, of Beaver Falls, Gabe Grinder and his wife, Nicole Grinder, of Ottawa, KS, and Sarah Tilghman (Grinder) and her husband, Jonathan Tilghman, of Nashville, TN; his grandchildren, Josiah, Evan, Ashton, Islee and Uriah Grinder; and his sisters, Karen Cramer and Ruth Ann Gillespie.
We pray that God grants those who are affected by this death the fortitude to carry on. Losing a beloved one is one of the most difficult feelings on earth. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family members and friend.
