Obituary for Scott Allen Carreau

May 15, 1967 - November 18, 2017
Manchester, New Hampshire | Age 50


Scott Allen Carreau, 50, of Manchester, passed away unexpectedly in his childhood home on Saturday, November 18, 2017.
Scott was born in Manchester May 15, 1967 to Donald and Virginia "Susie" (Keith) Carreau. He attended Memorial High School and found a lifelong passion in auto body work. Scott spent several years working closely with his dear friend, Joe Michelin, at Michelin Autobody and was excitedly about to embark on a new business venture opening his own auto body shop. A skilled technician, his services were in very high demand and it had often been said that he could take an old rust-bucket and turn it into gold.
Scott enjoyed motorcycles, dirt bikes, and radio controlled vehicles of all kind, and could often be found collecting all manner of things he considered "treasures." He also loved spending time with his family on the Merrimack River where he grew up. The river was such a huge part of their lives that, along with his wife and parents, the decision was made for Scott and Melissa to rent the home he grew up in from his parents, Don and Susie would sell their home in Texas, and with the proceeds of the sale purchase and move into the house right next door. Scott was a caring, kind-hearted, generous man whose great sense of humor and sarcastic wit will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Scott is survived by his loving wife of 17 years, Melissa (Grant) Carreau; his daughters, Kayla, Nicole, and Alexandria Carreau; his son, Joshua Carreau, his parents, Donald and Susie Carreau; his brothers, Shannon Carreau and wife, Melanie, and Lance Carreau and wife, Beth; two granddaughters and one niece.
