On July 17, 2015 Scott Limpert passed away suddenly of cardiac thrombosis at the age of 53. Scott left his house, much like he had so many times before, saying goodbye to his family and off to play soccer, the game he loved. This night was different, he never returned home.
Scott was born July 7, 1962 along with his twin brother Anthony Limpert to Carol and Tony Limpert of New York, New York. The word that most people would use to describe Scott was passion, and this he exhibited so early in life.
His passion for soccer began at a young age in Elmwood Park, New Jersey. Nobody knew at that time that the spark had been lit and the fire for the sport would burn so brightly until his death. Wherever Scott lived, he would always seek out a soccer team to join. In New Jersey it was the Elmwood Park Shamrocks, and in Texas his team was North Dallas Forty.
Scott was also passionate about his wife Lisa Toron. They had just celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary on July 14, 2015, 3 days before his passing; they were looking forward to the next 24 years together. They had a strong bond that strangers even took notice. People would go out of their way to comment how “in love” they were and what a great example they were setting for all the people around them, especially their children. They were truly soulmates.
Another passion of Scott’s was his children, Nicole and Connor Limpert. Scott shared his love for soccer with his children. Nicole started playing when she was 5 and continues to this day. She played with the Sting Soccer Club for 8 years as a goalie and earned All State Honors with the Allen High School soccer team. Nicole had just returned home from Europe in June 2015 where she saw the USA Men’s National Team vs Amsterdam with a USA win 4-3 in the last 10 minutes of play. Let me tell you, Scott was very jealous! Connor also played soccer as a defender for the Texas Football Club but then switched to American football as so many young men do in Texas. The position of choice…. naturally kicker. Summer 2015 was a very special one for father and son as they shared 3 weeks on the road attending Divison 1 college camps to showcase Connor’s kicking talent. That summer was filled with hard work, laughter, and lessons of perseverance. He instilled in both of his children that with hard work you can achieve your dreams and that you should never give up.
Scott’s life was all about family and soccer and with a beautiful ironic twist it ended with his soccer family by his side. His number, #19 lives on through his children.
Our goal with The Scott Limpert Memorial Fund is to assist individuals/ athletes/ students and organizations that were important to Scott . We also plan to allocate funds to raise awareness for Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the importance of AED machines, and organ donation . With the help of many friends and family members we are keeping his legacy alive and honoring his memory one day at a time. Scott Limpert… a life full of passion and hope, taken away much too soon but his name lives on doing great things.
