Livonia: July 30, 2017 Scott unexpectedly passed at the age of 52. Scott is survived by his wife of 28 years, Lori (DeGroat) Bishopp and his sons, Derek and Zach Bishopp, all of Livonia. His parents, Edward & Sandra Bishopp and his brother Troy (Corrine) Bishopp all of Deansboro, NY. Also survived by nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Scott began his journey through life in Deansboro, growing up on the farm Scott was always busy. From bailing hay to trapping raccoon he lived in the moment and never left a task unfinished. He enjoyed doing body work on cars and creating knick knacks in the barn. Right there beside him was his brother Troy whom he grew up with, sharing time on the snowmobile to beating each other up over who could drive the tractor. Scott loved his early life and would remember it fondly, sharing memories of his time on the football field to causing shenanigans in the town. Scott’s mother and father, Ed and Sandy, raised him and taught him everything he needed to succeed in life and build lasting relationships. Scott would leave the small town of Deansboro to achieve a degree in electrical engineering. Scott married the love of his life and his other half in Lori. He cherished her and began a life with her that is nothing short of magic. Even though he graduated with an electrical engineering degree his love for all computer programming took root and he soon made a career of it. Scott was never the one to accept being average as he rose through the ranks wherever he worked. Gaining knowledge and spreading that to all he managed. Scott settled down on a farmhouse that will always need work. He loved to tinker and took pride in being a handyman that could fix anything. Getting away from the computer screen Scott enjoyed to fish and spend time with his family. He invested everything he had in his wife and kids, he was a loving husband and father. One of his favorite things to do was take his family on a vacation, every year, to the beach and bask in the sun with those he loved the most. Scott lived with his emotions on his sleeve and wouldn’t be scared to tell you his opinion. He was the first to laugh and the last to leave you when you were in pain. Scott Bishopp is a great man who touched many lives, made many smile, and leaves behind a love that will be felt and cherished for all who knew him.
