He was born April 4, 1969, in Kalamazoo, MI to Ronald and Joyce (Dornan) Kuhnert.  He was a devoted husband, father, son, brother and physician.  Scott was a man of the highest integrity.  His greatest love and passion in life was his family.  He was involved in every aspect of their lives and they filled him with great pride and joy.
