Special Agent Scott W. Sieben left this world on June 2, 2015. He was born in Terre Haute, IN, as the fourth of six children to Melvin and Elaine Sieben. He proudly served in the US Marines from 1979-1983. He obtained his Liberal Arts degree from East Carolina University and the University of Illinois (Chicago) before completing his Master of Divinity from Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia, PA. As an ordained minister he served in Milan, Italy from 1992-1996.

Before beginning his career with the DEA, he further sharpened his cross-cultural skills while working with the international patient program at the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC. Upon completing the DEA academy at the age of 36, Scott began his DEA career out of the Raleigh, NC office in 1997. From 1997-2007 he served the DEA in Tampa, FL. Combining his linguistic gifts and international interests he returned to Italy with the DEA at the US Embassy in Rome Italy from 2008-2013.

He lived in Evansville, IN with Linda, his wife and partner of 28 years, and his beloved dog, Maggie. He is the proud father of three sons, Caleb (26), Nick (24), and Nate (22).

Scott is survived by his mother, Elaine Sieben; and siblings, Gregory (Heidi), Michael (Rosemary), Sandy (Richard) Bloemker, Nancy (David) Koehler, and Roger (Jennifer). Uncle Scott was loved by many, many nieces and nephews. His father, Melvin, preceded him in death in 2013.

Scott relished life. Spending time with family and friends. Sharing his knowledge and love for God. Organizing anything within reach. Running with Maggie. Sharing his frugal German perspective. Giving counsel when needed. Resting and trusting in God. Loving hard. Working hard. Playing hard. Praying hard. Always enjoying the moment that he was in.

Scott and Linda were joyful magnets and made fast friends all over the world. Scott is a song with no end because of the people he touched and changed with his borderless, accepting love and example.

He fought hard after his accident. He was being called elsewhere. He was more than a conqueror. (Romans 8:37-39)

Funeral Services will be 3:00 PM Sunday, June 7, 2015, at Methodist Temple, 2109 Lincoln Avenue. Friends may visit Saturday from 2:00 to 6:00 PM at Alexander East Chapel, 2115 Lincoln Avenue.

I knew Scott when we were Marines stationed at MCAS Cherry Point, NC, and we were members of Grace Evangelical Fellowship Church under Pastor Ronnie Stevens. Five of us, including Scott, went on from Cherry Point to the Moody Bible Institute. After I left MBI, I lost contact with Scott until I saw his obituary. I am glad to learn that his life continued to glorify Christ the way it did when I knew him. Semper-Fi Scott.....

Dear Linda, Caleb, Nick and Nate, we were saddened to receive the tragic news of the loss of your husband and father, Scott. We want to express our closeness to you at this time of grief. I will never forget Scott's generous hospitality and care for others, his gentle, firm and articulate efforts to communicate ultimate truths, his creative success in adapting to a new culture and engaging in dialogue with different levels of spirituality and theological reflection, and developing strategies to open a new way for Reformation in N. Italy. That was over twenty years ago in Milan. We are close to you in our thoughts and prayer. Sincerely with our affection, Jonathan and Emma Terino.

Dear Linda, Caleb, Nicky and Nate,

I have really struggled to come up with the words to express how saddened I am with the loss of Scott. Scott was such a mentor to me in my early walk with Christ. I so loved and appreciated him and his words of wisdom. I often think back to our visit to Italy just a few short years ago and the hospitality you all showed the Baker family. Just an amazing example of the love of Christ!!! I will miss Scott so much and look forward to that time when we are all re-united with our Lord Jesus Christ in the heavenly realm.

I so love you guys. You all continue to be in my thoughts and prays.
