Scott James Baumler, age 51, of Enderlin, ND, passed away at Sanford Hospital in Fargo, ND, on January 21, 2023.

Scott was born on June 17, 1971, to Raymond and Sandra Baumler of Wheatland, ND. He graduated from The Chaffee mustangs high school in 1990. He went on to attend college at NDSCS in Wahpeton, ND in the diesel mechanics program.

On April 27, 1991, he married his high school sweetheart, Lori Flikka. Together they had three sons Travis, Trevor, and Trenten Baumler. They eventually made their home in Sheldon, ND.

On March 29, 2012, Scott joined Penny Wright in marriage. They made their home in Fargo, ND and later in Enderlin, ND.

Scott worked as a millwright, mechanic, and welder for various companies over the years.

Scott enjoyed camping, backyard bonfires, and had a great love for fishing. He had a passion for riding motorcycles that started as a child. He was very proud when his boys were old enough and got their own motorcycles so they could all ride together. Even a couple rides with the original family five. And some summer days you could find Scott at the local golf course enjoying a round of golf with friends. He was a life long fan of the Denver Broncos always cheering them on on game day. His biggest pride and joy was his three sons Travis Trevor and Trent and his seven grandchildren. He was very excited when he recently learned he was going to be a grandpa with the eighth grandchild. He always played with his grandkids like he was a kid and always hugged and kissed his boys and grandkids goodbye and told them that he loved them. If you ever came to visit him you were sure to get a bowl of homemade bowl chili. He had a great love for all animals. He will be greatly missed by all.

He is survived by his wife Penny Baumler, of Fargo ND; his three sons – Travis (Tessa) Baumler of Enderlin, ND; Trevor Baumler of Enderlin, ND; Trenten Baumler (Stacy Enerhard) of Enderlin, ND; his Ex wife and special friend, Lori Flikka of Enderlin, ND; and seven grandchildren – Talia Baumler, Eden Baumler, Anthony Baumler, Talon Baumler, Bradley Baumler, Vaeda Eberhard, and Jude Eberhard all of Enderlin, ND.

  6. My brother Scott thank you for finding me and knowing me, our visits have been far and few in between I am going to miss your voice and phone calls I love you bro, and I love your family. I love your boys they are the best nephews anyone could ask for and they will carry on wonderful parenting to their sweet babies. I am so thank I visited you last October and happy you got to meet your niece and nephew for the 1st time. I kick myself for not visiting you more. You are always in my heart. I love and miss you forever and always. Thank you for knowing me. Your forever sister Jessica

  7. I have thought and thought what do I even say! I still can’t believe your gone. It wasn’t supposed to be this way! We were supposed to welcome our 8th grandchild into this world together like we did the others. It won’t be the same without you. You were probably the only person who could drive me nuts at times and still always cared for your well being. I always just wanted the best for you and our boys. I know you are sad to leave but happy to see your other loved ones. Watch over all of us and know we love and miss you!

  8. My sympathy to the Baumler family and extended family. I was Scott’s coach for basketball and baseball. He was a very intense player and always gave it his all. He was a very good defensive player in basketball.

  9. My sorrow at Scott’s passing in not something I can put into words. My prayers and love go out to his family and friends at this most painful and challenging time. I will be forever grateful for Scott reaching out twenty five years ago- for his concern, his phone calls and texts and always staying in touch. His heart was so full of love for
    his family (5)- and certainly the huge extended one.
