MIDDLETON - Scott Googins, age 55, of Middleton, passed away on Jan. 26, 2021, at UW Hospital of a traumatic brain injury. He was born on June 7, 1965, in Madison, the son of Sharon and Dan Googins. A few years later he became a big brother to Dawn Googins.

Scott grew up in Madison and was a graduate of Madison West High School in 1983. He completed coursework at UW-Madison and Carthage College and graduated in Computer Technology from Control Data Institute in Minneapolis, MN.  Scott married Theresa Aldrich on June 3, 1989.  His first daughter, Kyra, was born in 1992, and second daughter, Amber, in 1995.  He enjoyed going on trips with family and friends.

Scott started his own business in 2013 contracting technical and consulting services to Cellular Companies in the Midwest.  He most recently worked for Quality Cellular and Cellular Sales.

Scott had a love for muscle cars, and with a close friend, spent years rebuilding a 1972 Pontiac GTO which was featured on the front of Motor Trends Magazine.
