Scott A. Riddle, 53, Indianapolis, passed away unexpectedly November 27, 2019.  An exemplary employee who had been a waiter at ‪Tavern on South‬ Restaurant for the last 9 years, Scott was a very kind and considerate man from a large, loving and supportive family.  He had many friends and co-workers he loved and enjoyed.   
Born and raised in Indianapolis, Scott attended St Matthew School and graduated from Carmel HS in 1984.  He went on to graduate from Butler University and was a dedicated member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.  He was a devoted fan of his beloved Butler Bulldogs, Indianapolis Colts, and Chicago Cubs.  A crossword puzzle ‘expert’ and zealous book reader, Scott always had a book to read or share, but not a chance he would share his crossword puzzles.  
Survivors include his parents, John and Ellen Riddle, brothers Greg Riddle, Mike Riddle (Michelle), Tom Riddle (Barb), sister Lisa Lynch, nieces and nephews Patrick, Cooper, and Alex Riddle, Anna, Megan, and Jack Lynch, Tyler and Cassidy Riddle; lots of cousins, aunts and uncles; and his faithful dog Tinka.  
Services are set for ‪Saturday, December 14, 2019‬ with visitation ‪from 9:00 am -11:00 am‬ and a funeral service immediately following at St Matthew Catholic Church, ‪4100 E. 56th Street, Indianapolis‬.  All are invited to stay for a Celebration of Life luncheon in the school cafeteria.
