Obituary

Scott Alan Sturgeon “SSPRO” of Berlin, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, August 16, 2022. Born in Springfield Massachusetts on June 23, 1956. He was the son of Judy (Keegan) Sturgeon and the late Eugene F Sturgeon. Scott attended Berlin High school and earned his associates degree from Tunxis Community College. He then pursued a life-long career in his main passion, golf.

Scott began his career in the golf business as an assistant professional at Indian Hill CC, Cliffside CC and Tumble Brook CC before moving on to help build Golfers Warehouse. Scott was the general manager of Golfers Warehouse stores for many years. He developed countless relationships in the golf industry and moved on to be a manufacturer’s representative with Mizuno, Adams and Taylor Made among others. Scott remained in the golf business into retirement most recently working at The Country Club of Farmington.

Scott loved the outdoors. Aside from golf he loved fishing, skiing, and visiting his favorite places (Enchanted Pond, Little Sebago Lake and many other spots in Maine). Scott was also a music enthusiast who loved to listen to James Taylor and Gordon Lightfoot which continues to live through his children.  Scott will be remembered most for his love of his three children, family, close friends, and the golf community. Scott’s passion, larger than life personality and overall love for life will forever be missed.

He is survived by his three children who he was so proud of, Mathew Alan Sturgeon of Berlin, Jonathan Scott Sturgeon of Terryville, Allison Gene Laroche and her husband Michael Laroche of Plantsville; his mother Judy Sturgeon of South Portland Maine; sister Lori Davis of Bath Maine, brother David Sturgeon and wife Ruth Sturgeon of Lewiston Maine; the mother of his three children Renee Roche of Farmington and her parents and family. He also leaves many nieces, nephews and lifelong friends who he loved very much.
