Obituary

Scott Mintier, 78, of Marcellus, beloved husband of M. Eileen Mintier, for 44 years, entered eternal life on Sunday, Feburary 28, 2021.

Beloved husband of Eileen, he is survived by his 2 children, Stefan A. Mintier of Portland, OR and Michael S. (Lauren) Mintier of Marcellus, NY and his two step-children Kathleen E. McDonald (Maya Mullenex) of Franklin, WI. and Teresa (Kevin) Twohill of Clifton Park, NY.  He is the cherished grandfather of Haleigh, Ethan, and Daniel Twohill, all of Clifton Park; and Alexandra and Owen Mintier, of Marcellus.

He is the beloved brother of the late Thomas (Suvlak) Mintier of Krung Thep, Thailand.  He was a loving uncle of several nieces and nephews.

Born in Mount Vernon, OH, Scott was the son of the late Thomas and Lindia Mintier and a graduate of Mount Vernon High School, Class of 1960.

A resident of Clifton Park and Plattsburgh, NY; Scott also lived in Roswell NM; and in Munster, IN.

Scott retired in 2008 from Seagrave Fire Apparatus LLC, as the CEO.  Before that he was the President and COO of NOVA Bus Inc, Executive VP for Transportation Manufacturing Corp (TMC), as well as various management positions at Pullman Standard, Allis Chalmers, and Rohr Aircraft.

Scott occasionally enjoyed a scotch rocks, gin martini, or a Sam Adams.  He was fastidious about his appearance and clothes and always looked the part of corporate leader.  His hobbies included amateur wood working, taking things apart to find out why they weren't working, playing Euchre, and reading a truly voluminous amount of magazines.  He took great pride in his home and his ability to fix and maintain it.

He was an opinionated man who was well read and stood by the convictions of his understanding and opinions.  He was a corporate leader first and foremost, and though that didn't always translate in his relationships at home, he would always be there to help when needed, especially with math homework.

Scott was a private man and did not wish for a service.

The immediate family extends their sincere gratitude to all extended family members and friends for their loving wishes in this sad time.

Those who wish to may make memorial contributions to The Faustman Lab to cure Type 1 Diabetes in memory of Scott Mintier.  (http://www.faustmanlab.org/donate)  He wanted nothing more than a cure for his grandson Ethan who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at a young age.
