Scott E. Thomley

March 2, 1961 - December 9, 2018

Scott E. Thomley passed away unexpectedly at the age of 57.

Scott was born in Decatur, Illinois. He attended St. Paul’s Lutheran School and was a 1979 graduate of Cumberland County. Scott earned an Electronic Engineering degree from DeVry University in Chicago and settled in the Detroit area.  Scott’s professional career was in Information Technology for the robotics industry.

Surviving is his mother Corinne Thomley; brothers John and Mark; sisters Carole (Joe Wilson), and Sandy (Steve Ruelle); nephew Zachariah Huddleston; niece Tiffany Huddleston-DeLong and their families.

The first thing everyone remembers about Scott was his quick wit, smile, and explosive laugh. Scott played sports through school, he was an avid angler, and enjoyed many summer days on his speedboat with friends or at the beach with family.  However, Scott’s greatest joy was the open road on his motorcycle.

Schillings Funeral Home in Mattoon, IL is providing the services for his family. A celebration of Scott's life will be scheduled with friends in the Detroit area.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. John’s Lutheran School, 200 Charleston Ave, Mattoon, Illinois 61938 through or Casting for Recovery - Michigan through
