Scott Lee Brolsma, 60, of Noblesville, Indiana, passed away at home surrounded by his loving family on March 29, 2023, after a battle with cancer. He was born April 29, 1962, in Crookston, Minnesota, the son of the late Allen and Leah (Seaton) Brolsma. He married his high school sweetheart, JoAnn Finkenbinder, on June 9, 1984, and together they raised their two daughters, Nora and Claire, for whom he was so very proud of.
Scott graduated from Crookston High School in 1980 and because of his time spent on the Capistran Farm, he was inspired to earn associate, bachelor’s and Masters degrees in Agronomy from University of Minnesota Crookston and North Dakota State University. Scott enjoyed his long career in the ag industry, as well as the many people with whom he was fortunate to meet.
Scott was a natural athlete. He played hockey throughout high school and college; swam with the Noblesville Adult Swim Team; and most recently in 2021, completed a half Ironman. Besides his own athletic endeavors, Scott was deeply involved in his daughters’ love for swimming; He served on the Noblesville Swim Club Board, Friends of Central Pool, and was a dedicated community volunteer.
Having traveled to all fifty states, Scott’s greatest love was being with his family and traveling with them. Big Sky, Montana was one of his favorite places for family fun and skiing. Scott’s intense curiosity, strong will, genuine interest, decisive nature, and sense of humor made him one-of-a-kind.
Scott is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, JoAnn Brolsma; their two daughters, Nora (Dan) Farrell and Claire (David) Maxwell; grandson, Carter Scott Farrell; siblings, Bob (Kathy) Brolsma, Jim (Jan) Brolsma, Nancy (Wayne) Capistran; father and mother-in-law, Glen and Marlys Finkenbinder; brother-in-law, Mike (Brenda) Finkenbinder; sister-in-law, Carol (Jim) Lehman; and many nieces and nephews. Scott is deeply loved by his entire family.
