Scott A. Gullickson


Scott A. Gullickson, 63, of Galesville, passed away Tuesday, March 12, 2024, at Gundersen Medical Center in La Crosse.

Scott was born July 22, 1960, to Roland and Carol (McKeeth) Gullickson in Holmen. He graduated from Holmen High School in 1978. After high school, Scott took at position with Babson Brothers/Westfalia/Surge-GEA Farm Technologies in Galesville and worked there until his retirement. He loved his job and the relationships he made working in the warehouse. Scott was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Kim Stocker, in 1980. They were blessed with a daughter, Kristina, shortly after. “The best thing that ever happened to him”, per Scott, just before his passing. Kim and Scott later divorced.

If you knew Scott, you would have known he was filled with love. He loved all things Wisconsin sports: Packers, Badgers, Bucks and Brewers. Scott loved to brag about his granddaughters. He loved growing up on a farm and playing sports. Scott was all things outdoors. He loved his fishing trips to Canada with his dad, brother, Uncle Gordo and his cousins. He loved his hunting trips out west, as well as duck hunting and pheasant hunting here in God’s country with that same company. Deer hunting in Wisconsin was a staple in his life with family and friends throughout the years. Throwing horseshoes, shooting trap, fishing, sporting events, boating, motorcycle rides, camping, concerts, golf with a club or a frisbee, were all things Scott enjoyed throughout his life.

Scott is survived by his daughter, Kristina (Ryan) Schwertel; granddaughters: Layla, Kinley, Maya, and Paige Schwertel of Trempealeau; brother, Mike Gullickson of Galesville; nephews: Matt Gullickson (Angie Petersen); daughters: Celia and Elaina; nephew, Travis Gullickson; and his son, Trenton; nephew, Roland Gullickson (fiancée, Kat Enevold); many aunts and uncles, and many cousins whom he was very close. Scott had a special relationship with his only brother, Mike. Scott treasured his daughter, Kristina, and would gush with pride at any chance to talk about the life and family she had made. Scott had a very special bond with his nephew, Matt and considered him a son. Scott was also blessed with a long list of lifelong friends of which some were able to be with him before his passing. Few people are fortunate enough to have a fraction of the good friends that Scott had in his lifetime.

Scott’s family would like to thank his care team at Gundersen Health System for their compassion during this difficult time. He was fortunate to be surrounded by the ones he loved the days before his passing. Also, a very special thank you to Scott’s cousin, Heidi McKeeth, who helped him find peace and gave him comfort as he walked through Heaven’s Gate.

A celebration of Scott’s life will be held Saturday, March 30, 2024, from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., at the Holmen American Legion, 419 1st Ave. West, Holmen. The family is requesting everyone wear their best Packers/Badgers/Brewers/Bucks gear.
