Scott Lockhart

May 12, 2022

Scott Lockhart, of Fishers, passed away on Thursday, May 12, 2022. He was 64 years old.

He was born in Iaeger, WV to the late PD and Verna (Campbell) Lockhart.

Mr. Lockhart grew up in Iaeger, WV, Chicago and Indianapolis. He graduated from Ball State University and was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity where he served as president and had continued to enjoy the lifelong brother ties. He was an avid Bears football, Cubs baseball and IU basketball fan. Mr. Lockhart became a commercial insurance adjuster in 1982. In 2005, he and Ken Solmon, his brother-in-law, opened an insurance agency in Noblesville that they both were very proud of. He worked at Sears Hardware where he was also a trusted friend to many customers and co-workers.

Mr. Lockhart loved Jesus with all he was. He completed in-depth Bible studies and encouraged others to do the same. He proudly shared his testimony often and he prayed heartfelt prayers daily. He baptized his three daughters and loved knowing that he led them to Jesus. Worship through music was one of his favorite things to do. He blessed many services by singing with worship teams over the years with his beautiful base voice. Mr. Lockhart made the trip of a lifetime a few weeks ago with his church family to Israel. No one enjoyed the trip more! He was a trustee at his White Chapel Church.

He and his wife Cathy married May 1, 1982 and recently celebrated their 40th anniversary. They lived in Peoria, IL until they moved to Fishers in 1989. She was his best friend and they were seldom seen apart, even working together daily at the agency. He loved to spoil her with surprise gifts out of the blue and always insisted that she was his better half while she insisted that he was hers. Mr. Lockhart and his wife faced the good and bad together as one. God blessed their marriage in countless ways.

He often bragged that he was outnumbered all these years and that he “survived and thrived” with three teenage daughters in the house along with their friends. He was King of his castle, a superhero and miracle worker! He was not a complainer about anything. Mr. Lockhart loved Cathy and his daughters well. They were his pride and joy.

He was always the life of the party, a trivia buff and a history lover and so much more. He loved telling corny jokes and making people laugh. Most of all, Mr. Lockhart was a loving husband, father and grandfather. His favorite names were Dad and Grandpa Scott.

Survivors include his wife Cathy Lockhart; three daughters Kelly Jo, Stacie (Jordan) Bistodeau and Kimberly (Kevin) Dobbyn; five granddaughters Alice, Evie, Vivian Scott, Margot and Andie; two step-sisters Cindy (Jeff) Cline and Yevonne (Gene) Harris; his beloved mother-in-law Lorreta Solmon; four nieces; and one nephew.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his two brothers Matthew Lockhart and Marty Lockhart; sister Jeanna Denton; step-mother Carol Lockhart; and father-in-law Craig Solmon.

Services are scheduled to be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17th, at Randall and Roberts Fishers Mortuary, 12010 Allisonville Road, in Fishers, with Pastor David Cottrell officiating. Visitation is scheduled to be held from 4 p.m. until the time of service.
