THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Scott Rysewyk, 54, of Rainbow, Ca., passed away there Nov. 16 after a long battle with cancer.
Born to Peter and Lorraine Rysewyk Jan. 31, 1959 in Marinette, he was raised on a dairy farm near Coleman and graduated from Coleman High School in 1977. He moved to Texas shortly after graduation and then to California in 1989. He started his own business and was self employed until his death. He loved being outside where he spent most of his time and his hobby was planting trees and all types of landscaping. His unyielding faith carried him through all the tough times.
He is survived by a daughter, April; a sister, Shirley (Steve); two brothers, Daniel (Julia) and Terry (Diana) and his mother, Lorraine.
He was preceded in death by his father, Peter and two brothers, Robert and Todd.
