1983 – 2014

LEWISTON — Scott Toby Tiner, 30, of Lake Street in Auburn, died Monday, Nov. 17, surrounded by his loving family after a brief and sudden illness at Central Maine Medical Center.

He was born in Lewiston on Dec. 28, 1983, a son of Toby and Linda (Dumont) Tiner Sr. He was educated in local schools and graduated from Edward Little High School, Class of 2002. While at EL, he played varsity basketball and coached basketball for the YMCA. In his earlier years, he was a three-time free-throw champion in 1993, ’94 and ’95. He was very proud of this achievement.

Scott was the founder of Platznation, a co-ed softball team that was unbeatable. The Nation was one of the most successful co-ed softball teams for many years and he took great pride in all of the team’s many accomplishments. His team was like family to him and he looked forward to every game he played with them.

Scott loved spending time with his son, Tysen, whether it was coaching his Little League team, rough-housing together or just relaxing at home. They had an amazing bond and he often referred to Tysen as “my man.”

He enjoyed driving his Mustang, which he was very passionate and meticulous about. He was an avid sports fan, especially when it came to his N.Y. Giants, Red Sox and Celtics. Attending games was always something he looked forward to, especially the surprise trips he took to Red Sox games the past two years as a Father’s Day gift with his dad. Scott also took great pride in the home he shared with Lindsey and Tysen, always having a home improvement project he was working on.

He leaves his mother, Linda Tiner and her husband, Al Richard, of Hebron; his father, Toby Tiner Sr. and his companion, Stephanie Cole, of Auburn; his true love and soul mate for the past 11 years, Lindsey Cormier, and their amazing son, Tysen Toby Tiner, both of Auburn; a brother, Toby Tiner Jr. and wife, Vicki, of Auburn; a sister, Debbi Murphy and husband, Tom, of Auburn; two nephews, Drew Tiner and Bryce Gibson; his maternal grandmother, Hanna Dumont, of Mechanic Falls; several aunts, uncles and cousins; and four very close friends, Shane Ciriello, Joe Locke, Joe “Bunz” Rathbun and JJ Varney, and many more friends and teammates whom he truly adored.

He was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Normand Dumont; and his paternal grandparents, Robert and Claire Tiner Sr.
