Tobin “Scott” Fiser, 45, of Grand Rapids, MI, gained his wings suddenly from a brain aneurysm on Saturday, April 8, 2023.
Scott was born on April 7, 1978, to Tobin and Michele Fiser in Denver, CO. Scott was an outstanding athlete with major accomplishments in baseball and football and one of his hobbies, golf. Scott graduated from Sinagua High School in 1996 and continued his education and playing baseball at Yavapai College, transferring later to Eastern Arizona College. Scott moved back to Flagstaff, AZ where he graduated with honors from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Finance.
Upon graduation, Scott moved to Phoenix, AZ where he worked briefly in management for Enterprise Rental Car, then transitioned to his more than 19-year career with Bank of America. Scott was a FINRA Registered Representative and held his Series 7 and Series 63 securities licenses. He moved from a Senior Client Manager role in the bank’s Global Commercial Banking group when he was promoted to Senior Vice President of Credit Products with Bank of America in 2010, which led his family to Grand Rapids, MI. Scott finished his distinguished career as the Senior Vice President, West MI Team Lead in Global Commercial Banking. In Scott’s own words (and truthfully, in ours as well), his title REALLY was, “Captain Bad Ass”.
Scott was an extremely generous and respected member of his community, where he volunteered much of his time to Habitat for Humanity and served as a board and executive committee member of Junior Achievement of the MI Great Lakes and a board member and corporate secretary of The World Affairs Council of Western MI.
Scott loved his family to his absolute fullest and boasted about his children’s accomplishments and activities any chance he got. He loved watching his daughters, Tavin and Julie excel in cheerleading and his son, Luke in soccer and basketball, often joining him on the court whenever possible. Scott’s family has so many wonderful stories of time spent together playing games, cooking, traveling and so many more “remember when” memories that make you say, “yeah, that was Scott for you!”
Scott’s final selfless act was the gift of life through organ donation.
Scott is survived by his wife of 21 years, Annie, daughters Tavin and Julie, and son, Lukas “Luke”; his parents Toby and Michele Fiser; siblings, Kristin (Matt) Stribling and Travis (Heather) Fiser; along with many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held on Thursday, April 13, 2023, at Keystone Community Church located at 655 Spaulding Ave SE in Ada, MI at 5:00 p.m. Another celebration of life will occur in his hometown, Flagstaff, AZ in the summer. The Flagstaff celebration date and location will be released as soon as possible through social media, or you may contact Toby, Michele, Kristin or Travis for additional information.
