Scott A. Oliver

Scott A Oliver of Noblesville, IN

Scott Oliver, a loving husband and father, passed away peacefully in his sleep 5-14-17.  He was born in Indianapolis, IN on 4/8/55 to Shirley and Jerry D. Oliver. His father preceded him in death. His mother, Shirley Campbell, survives.

He led an active life; he was a volunteer firefighter, an avid bowler and golfer. He enjoyed playing horseshoes, softball, and darts.  Scott gave his best to everything he did and worked for Ziebart, Hooks Drugs (CVS), and Walmart after graduating from Carmel High School in 1974.

Scott had a wonderful sense of humor. He was quick-witted and enjoyed making those around him laugh. Scott considered humor as medicine for the soul. Scott enjoyed the Three Stooges, Red Skelton, and other classics. Scott always lightened up the mood with his presence and ensured that everyone around him was comfortable.

He had a massive heart attack at the age of 34 when he received his first heart transplant. Scott was a double heart transplant recipient and a dialysis patient. Scott was the 89th person in Minnesota to receive a heart transplant, which was still in the experimental stages. Fortunately, the transplant was successful and allowed his family many more years with him. His second heart transplant was in 2001. Please consider becoming an organ donor if you are not one already. It will make a significant difference in someone else’s life; it made the world of difference in ours. He was able to see 3 of his 4 children get married, walk both of his daughters down the aisle, and see all 7 of his grandchildren born.

Scott is survived and will be missed by his wife, Mary (Fenstermaker) Oliver, and children, William S. Oliver, Kristina L. Blood (James), Dorothy J. Oliver (Shea Finnegan), and Joseph B. Oliver. Scott is also survived by seven grandchildren.

Scott is survived by his brother, Marc D. Oliver (Lynn); and sisters, Robin K. Fehsenfeld (Theresa), Lisa R. Martz, Amy K. Heckman (K.C.), and Bonnie L. Campbell.


Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, May 17 2017 at/Cicero American Legion. In lieu of flowers, it was Scott’s request that memorial contributions be made in his name to Kidney Foundation or American Heart Association.
