Peter Scott Damgaard, of Elysburg, passed away unexpectedly at his home on May 9, 2022, at the age of 56. “Scott” was youngest son of the late Peter and Karin (Christensen) Damgaard of Ringtown, and was predeceased by his sister Lisa, who passed in 2014.
After his father’s sudden death in 1995 Scott defied family expectations when, at a young age, he assumed and expanded, Nordic Tool and Die Company in Brandonville. Scott had many friends in his neighborhood, as well as through work and while his children participated in sports at Sothern Columbia. He also served on the Board of Ralpho Township Municipal Authority.
Scott enjoyed cooking and entertaining, hunting and fishing. He was proud of his Danish heritage, which included preparing dishes he learned from his mother. A drink with friends was preceded with a lift of the glass and a toast to all “Skol”!
Scott is survived by his daughter Kelsey, and grandson Jaxon of Sunbury, his son Sydney of Bellefonte, and daughter Vanessa, who lived with Scott in Elysburg. Scott is also survived by two brothers, Jens Damgaard (wife Donna) of Harrisburg, and Erik Damgaard, of McConnelsburg, and several nieces and nephews.
Scott’s life will be celebrated by family and friends at an event to be announced at a future date.
