Scott David Soppe
Scott David Soppe passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 2, 2023, in his home, surrounded by his loving family after a three-year battle with colon cancer.
Due to Scott’s wishes, no formal services will be held. However, a celebration of life will be held on May 6, 2023, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Worthington Community Center in Worthington, Iowa.
Scott was born on April 25, 1972, at Finley Hospital in Dubuque, Iowa. He is the son of David and Kathy Soppe of Worthington, Iowa. He graduated from Western Dubuque High School in 1990. He then attended Kirkwood Community College and received an Associate of Applied Science degree in the field of Electronic Communications. He also attended Penn Foster School of Academics and graduated with high honors in Home Inspection and Home Remodeling and Repair.
Scott owned and operated his own business called BILDN-M in Cedar Rapids. He loved creating things, from the early years of building club houses, to remodeling homes, building decks, and the last thing on his bucket list was designing and building a home for one of his many clients.
Scott enjoyed playing baseball, riding ATVs, hanging with his buddies, and listening to music, cruising in his Corvette, and watching his nieces at their sporting events. And of course, he had a love for all his cactuses.
Those left to cherish Scott’s memory include his parents, Dave and Kathy Soppe; his sister, Tina (Brian) Thornton of Dyersville, Iowa; nieces, Kassidy and Avery Thornton; aunts, Ann (Soppe) Besler, Helen (Soppe) Hosch and Naomi (Aldrich) Soppe; uncle, Mike (Lucy) Kirsch; and many cousins.
Scott was preceded in death by his grandparents, Betty and Leland Greene and Alvina and Gerhard Soppe; aunt, Doris (Soppe) Kirsch; uncles, James Soppe and Jerry Besler; cousins, Jamie Soppe and Stephanie Wissing; and his dog Cujo and cat Mary Jane.
The family would like to thank Dr. Berg, Dr. Chan, and all the nurses that helped Scott at the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at The University of Iowa. They would also like to thank the staff of St. Croix Hospice of Cedar Rapids. They would especially like to extend thanks to Scott’s close friends Chad and Molly (Platz) Dunne, Ronnie Fangman, Mya, Cody Ronk, Paulie Rowland, Brett Huber and Danny Houston for all the love and support they’ve given Scott throughout the last three years, especially in the last month of his life.
“Stand fast in the faith. Be brave. Be strong.”
