Scott P. VanGarderen


Scott P. VanGarderen, 56, of Ballston Spa entered into eternal rest on July 11, 2020. He had been in St. Peter's Hospice. Scott was born July 4, 1964 in Glens Falls, NY to John L. VanGarderen and Margaret E. Hall VanGarderen.

Scott was a 1982 graduate of Bishop Gibbons High School and went on to graduate from the University at Albany with a Masters in Public Administration. Scott worked for many years as a probation officer for Albany County before opening his own construction company.

He was married to his wife, Michelle for 24 years and loved spending any free time with his wife and children. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and country music. Scott was a faithful, Spirit filled Christian man whose love for God and his family was the most important thing to him. All he did, whether at work or play, was for them.

Scott is also survived by his children: step-daughter Angelina Bellini, daughter Megan VanGarderen and son Daniel VanGarderen, his step-father Patrick F. Ravena, his four brothers, John T. VanGarderen, Eric (Christine) VanGarderen, Brian (Kim) Ravena, Mark (Hang) VanGarderen, and one sister, Allison (Tom) Norris. He is also survived by many, many nieces and nephews.

Scott was predeceased by his father, John L. VanGarderen and his mother Margaret (Hall) Ravena.

At this time there will be no formal services.
