Scott A. Switzer: July 5, 2017


Scott A. Switzer died peacefully in Coupeville on July 5, 2017, at the age of 62.

Scott was an accomplished musician and was the owner of Island Guitar on Whidbey Island. Playing guitar was his passion, and Scott enjoyed playing the guitar for over 50 years.

He loved sharing his vast knowledge of music with his students. Scott and his brother Richard also established a local band called “Spellbound.”

Scott was a dedicated father, grandfather, brother and son. Family was No. 1 priority to him. He also made numerous friends over his lifetime which he considered family.

Scott is survived by his children, Stephanie and Jaime Wilson, granddaughters Payton and Darion Wilson, father and step-mother James and Kathleen Switzer, brother Richard Switzer and sister Marianne Houlne.

He loved his family very much and they loved him in return.

Scott requested no formal funeral services be held.

Per his wishes, daughter Stephanie will spread his ashes at his favorite beach on Whidbey Island. All are welcome to attend the scattering and celebrate Scott’s life.

Stephanie will post details later this month for place and time.

The family would like to thank Careage of Whidbey for their exceptional care.

Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Wallin Funeral Home.
