Scott Bennett Gilbreth

Scott Bennett Gilbreth, 31, of Lincoln passed away suddenly on September 24, 2019. He was born July 11, 1988 under the morning star nestled in the curve of the crescent moon to Brad and Joan Gilbreth and into the loving arms of a large family of Gilbreths and Getterts. He lived his life in Lincoln Nebraska but traveled every chance he could. He would hop on Amtrak to visit his brother and sister-in-law in Colorado, or take a spur of the moment trip to California. His social media updates sometimes surprised us with photos from distant locations. Last year his bravery and organizational skills led him to plan a trip to visit his mother who was in Scotland on sabbatical. He hadn’t flown since he was a child, but he planned and executed an affordable trip by having lengthy layovers. As a result, he liked to joke that he got to visit three additional international countries on his trip.

He was passionate about education, for himself and for others. He loved photography, family, and friends. He was always dreaming of the next big thing and was developing a photography business exploring his eclectic interest in images of landscape, architecture, and people.

He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 2015. At the time of his death, he had earned a project management certificate and was within weeks of earning a Master’s Degree in Managing Information Systems at Bellevue University. He was looking forward to a career that put his education to use.

Family members include his parents, Brad and Joan (Gettert) Gilbreth; brother and sister-in-law Jason and Stefanie (Evans) Gilbreth; step-grandmother Ann Gilbreth; aunts and uncles:  Bruce and Jeanette Gilbreth, Brenda Gilbreth, Britt Gilbreth, Ron and Linda (Gettert) Kallhoff, Graydon and Sandra (Gettert) Bates, Arlene (Schroeter) Gettert, Larry and Jill (Wedige) Gettert, Dave and Karen (Gettert) Shoemaker, August and Barbara (Gettert) Waterman; many cousins and their families.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Bruce and Betty Jo (McCool) Gilbreth, Floyd and Christine (Vogel) Gettert, and his uncle Duane Gettert.

Services will be held on 11 am, Monday, September 30, 2019 at Roper and Sons, South Lincoln Chapel, 3950 Hohensee, Lincoln NE. Family will receive visitors at the chapel from 10-11; Internment at Eagle Cemetery at 2:30 pm.
