Welcome to Smith Miner

Scott Donald Sias, 56, of Midland passed away peacefully on our Lord’s holiest of days, Easter (April 12, 2020) in his childhood home with family by his side after a long battle with cancer. He was born June 22, 1963, to his father Donald E. Sias of Midland and mother Lois A. (Windover) McPherson.


Scott graduated from H.H. Dow High School in 1981 and attended Delta College. Scott worked for his grandfather who owned Keith Sias Trucking and sold Christmas trees every year on M-20. Scott also worked construction and helped build a house with his stepfather and mother and then worked for his uncle in Florida. From there Scott called his uncle Jim Windover in California asking about work. That’s when Scooter moved to California. He ran his own hardwood floor business for 30 years and lived on a golf course in Hidden Valley, California. Scott enjoyed this community very much. Scott worked hard and played hard. He loved fishing, hunting, camping, golf and even played baseball in his spare time. Scott was a great cook and loved to host parties, making all the food for holiday and sporting events. Scott’s was the place to go for fun and good food.


Scott is survived by his father Donald E. Sias of Midland, his mother Lois McPherson of Sanford, sister Kimberly (Gary), nephew Samuel Scott Lloyd Wamsley. Aunts and Uncles Maryanne (Jerry) spencer of Midland, Nancy Holt of Holland, Katherine (Fosgitt) Sias of East Tawas, Joe (Betty) Windover of Midland, Marty (Vic) Ferris of Orlando, Florida and Jim Windover and Karen Thurmond O’Neil of Georgia.


Scott was proceeded in death by his grandparents Keith and Marge Sias of Midland, Ruth Window Nash of Midland, uncle Herb Sias of East Tawas and his stepfather Lloyd A. McPherson and his dog kids Cooper, Katcha, Kane and Max.


Per Scott’s wishes cremation has taken place. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider the Midland Humane Society or his family of memory.

    This is long overdue. Sorry to hear about Scott’s passing. He and I worked on many construction projects together in Hidden Valley and we became friends. Scott did beautiful work and and he was fun and athletic! My condolences to the family. We remember Scott very fondly.
    May he rest in peace.

    We just learned that we lost Scotty and it hurts. He was a family member for us for many years. When he left California (I heard it was an interesting trip) we were happy that he was going to be close to his family.

    I’m sorry Lois. He had an impact here and we’re happy that he got to show off his mom out here – we had fun! And Hi Kim.

    God Bless and Take Care,

    Dan & Darcy

    So sorry to hear this. So much time has passed and we dont see each other any more but the family inspired me from snowmobiles to boats and dirt bikes, but at the end of the day love and respect each other and the toys. So it hurts to hear of the loss but will always remember the LOVE

    Very sorry to hear about Scott`s passing . Lots of memories from pizza parties at mom and dads to watching the kids on bowling night. Time just keeps rushing past us. Glad I got a chance to see him a few years ago. Peace be with him….
