Scott Weingard, known as Scotty or Scooter to his family and friends, was born and grew up in Dix Hills, New York. While at Half Hollow Hills High School West, Scotty was a well-rounded student with many interests, including basketball, tennis, math, science and computers. Scotty chose the University of Michigan because he was a fan of the Wolverine's hoops and football teams, because of Michigan's strong academic reputation, and because many of his friends had decided to attend Michigan.
Scotty graduated Michigan with a bachelor's degree in business administration in 1993. Following graduation, Scotty headed to New York City where he joined Hypnotic Hats, a company that his brother Rob had started with some friends. Scotty excelled at Hypnotic Hats, which manufactures baseball caps, and was soon promoted to operations manager, a position he held for seven years. About a year ago, Scotty left Hypnotic Hats for Cantor Fitzgerald and a promising career in equities trading.
Although living in New York City, Scotty returned each year to Ann Arbor for football games, enjoyed two Rose Bowl games in Pasadena, and maintained numerous friendships from his University of Michigan days.
Scotty is survived by his mother Bonnie, his brothers Rob and Marc and their wives, Joey and Kerri, his nephews Crew, Stevie, Curtis and Spencer. Scotty also will be sorely missed by his cousins Jared, Jeff and Todd, who were like brothers to Scotty, his cousins Robin and Ellen, and, of course, his many friends.
