John D. "Jack" Scholz

John D. "Jack" Scholz passed away peacefully in Key West, Fla. at the age of 79 on Friday, April 12, 2013.

Husband to Diane for 51 years, father to Vic, Heidi, Eric and Kara; grandfather to John, Katie, Aaron, Thomas, Lauren, Sam, Lindsey and Isabel; and brother to Lois and Carol.

Jack was an executive at Abbott Labs for 20 years. Mostly, he was an adored husband and father, mentor to many, coach to hundreds of aspiring baseball players, and a pal to everyone he encountered. Jack had a full and beatiful life in which he traveled the world with Diane, had many friendships, danced at all his children's weddings, and held all of his grandchildren.

Those who met him wanted to call him a friend. His infectious, positive attitude, quick smile, extraordinary generosity and superior charm will be missed by many.

Friends and neighbors are invited to gather and celebrate Jack's life from 5-7 p.m. Monday, April 15, 2013 at the Key West Golf Clubhouse. Dean-Lopez Funeral Home is entrusted with all funeral arrangements.
