M. Scott Dellenbach, age 62, passed away peacefully Friday night on June 19, 2020 at Mayo Clinic Hospital while in hospice after fighting a three-year battle with cancer. Scott was born August 30, 1957 in Denver, CO to Gene and Lil Dellenbach. He graduated from Austin Pacelli High School in 1975. Following high school, Scott attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Economics.
In 1999 Scott moved to St. Louis Park, MN where he worked as a Compensation Analyst on a consulting basis until retiring in 2017. He was a devoted member of the Holy Family Catholic Church. Scott enjoyed spending time with his daughter Katie, working on his house, various outdoor activities including hunting and fishing, and going to sports games with his friends. He will be remembered for always having a smile on his face and a joke to make you laugh, and for his care and consideration for others. Scott faced cancer with great courage and hope. His faith and strength carried him through life, and his family and friends now take comfort in knowing he rests in peace.
Scott is survived by his daughter Katie Dellenbach and her fiancé Corbin Ringsred of Duluth, his mother Lil Dellenbach of Austin, his brother Tom Dellenbach of Maplewood, his niece Mary Dellenbach, as well as many close friends. He was preceded in death by his father Gene Dellenbach, sisters Debbie Dellenbach and Kathie Dellenbach, and sister-in-law Judy Dellenbach.

"Dear Lil and family,
I am so very sorry to learn of Scott?s passing. My heart goes out to you all. Lil, I know you and my Mom, Norma Standinger, we?re friends and she would tell me when she spoke to you and how Scott was doing although he was not ill at that time. Scott was always a really nice guy, I know he will be missed by many. Take care and God bless, Lori (Standinger) Bartee. Loribartee1@gmail.com. "
"I worked with Scott at the Oak Leaf restaurant in Austin when we were in High School. Nice guy, thoughts are with his family.
"Lil. I just recieved the Austin Daily Herald, and saw that Scott has passed. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember waiting on you & Scott at The Old Mill in Austin some years ago. I am so glad I got that chance to catch up with him at that time. God Bless!
"I knew Scott in Rochester years ago early 80\'s, and unfortunately we lost touch over the years, but he was never far from good memories. One of those people who once you met you never forgot, always there with a smile and a helping hand and a great heart, mind and soul. Sadly we lost one of the good ones. I wish we had stayed in contact, but life steers us other directions, my regret is not keeping in touch with him over the years, a loss I will never forget. My heart goes out to family, friends, and loved ones who will miss him as I do. So \"cheers\" to you my old friend."
"Thoughts and prayers for all of Scott\'s family. Knew Scott from Pacelli in Austin. May he rest in peace. Maggie Dooley "
"Jan and Katie, I am so sorry to learn of Scott\'s passing. His obituary shows he was a wonderful Christian man who loved his family. Although it has been years since I have personally seen him I do remember his smiling face and welcoming spirit. May the peace of the risen Lord be with him in eternity and with you both. Miss seeing you all......Craig (Cousin and Great Uncle??)"
"Scott was a very good friend over many year living both in Rochester and St Louis Park. When Scott was diagnosed he decided to retire. And with this new found freedom we decided what better time to assess the food and drink of the Metro. But where do we start? Scott suggested Bloody Marys and our weekly adventure began. From Bloody Marys to BBQ to Steak to beer. We sample a great variety of what Minneapolis had to offer while enjoying each other?s company and stories.
So now ends the weekly Foodie adventures. I will miss you Scott. Enjoy your new adventure Put in a good words for all of us when you can. "
