Family and friends of Scott (Scotty) Wirtz would like to send a sincere thank you to all the unions that supported and donated to the Scotty Wirtz Memorial Golf Tournament held at Sugar Creek Golf Course on Sept. 15, 2019.
Scotty Wirtz, the son of retired Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 562 member David Wirtz, was a decorated, retired Navy Seal. After serving eight years in the Navy, with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, he joined the Defense Intelligence Agency as an Operations Support Specialist. He was serving his third deployment in the Middle East when he was killed by a suicide bomber in Manbij, Syria on Jan. 16, 2019.
The golf tournament raised $25,000, which has been donated to the Navy Seal Foundation and to other veteran programs in Scotty’s memory.
