Scott Estelle Obituary

Scott T. Estelle 73 of Throop passed away on October 10, 2023, at Upstate University Hospital after a long illness. His loving family was by his side.

  Scott was born in Lyons, NY and lived most of his life in Central New York. He managed his father’s companies collectively known as Corostone Grange Silo Co. which manufactured, sold, and erected concrete farm silos. He worked at every facet of the business through his life, starting in the plant and with building crews as a teenager, then sales, equipment maintenance and fabrication, shipping and logistics, personnel and administration in later years. As with most family businesses, he wore a lot of hats.

  He also had an avocation in artwork having graduated as a Master Sculptor from the Ontario College of Art where he learned to create and cast fine bronze sculpture. He was awarded the Emanuel Hahn Sculpture Award. After graduation, he taught life modeling, drawing, and anatomy at St. Lawrence Community College in Kingston, Ontario and later taught an introductory art course at Syracuse University. Even with the demands of work and family, he managed to create sculpture throughout his life and had continuous gallery shows as well as juried competitions where he won many awards.

  His leisure time was devoted to his motorcycles and riding. It was a passion that he never tired of. He had many friends in the biking community who affectionately knew him as “Third World”. His pride and joy was his 2000 Harley Fat Boy, custom painted personally by the renowned Lenny Smith of Kolorcraft. If you are someone who knew Scott in this capacity or simply love to ride, weather permitting please ride into the calling hours to say a final goodbye… I know he will be smiling down.

  Scott is survived by his wife of 51 years Dana, sons Taylor and Shane (Faith), daughter Shannon (Charles) Montgomery, grandchildren Kelan, Gavin, & Ceara Montgomery, brother Craig (Marlene) & family, and sister Lynne Yauchler & family. He was predeceased by his parents, Frank & Eleanor Estelle and brother Ralph “Rowdy” Estelle.
