The world became brighter on Oct. 11, 2022, when Emmett James Scherrer-Vassos was born in Waukesha. Sadly, Emmett, age 29 days, passed away in his parent’s arms on Nov. 9, 2022. Born to Lexus Scherrer and Prokopios Vassos, Emmett very early revealed the same charismatic smile and charm as his mom and the tenderness and easy-going attitude of his dad. He will be meeting his fur sister, Gizzy, in heaven.

Emmett is survived by his parents, Lexus Scherrer and Prokopios Vassos; grandparents, Amy Scherrer, James (Denise) Scherrer, and Ann (late, Gus) Vassos; aunts, Lacey Scherrer and Soula (Bob) Sdralis; uncle Bill Vassos; great grandparents, Carol Seitz, James and Holly Scherrer, Chuck (Karen) Hofmann, and Doreen (late, Wayne) Seitz; and numerous great aunts, great uncles, family and siblings.

We would like to thank Children’s Hospital, Milwaukee, 8th floor NICU “Bear Wing” and Cardio NICU, especially Dr. Michael Mitchell and pediatric nurses, Lori Radewan, Abbie Roskopt, and Quierra Sample.

Emmett was such a light in our lives. His sweet personality will forever be remembered. To honor Emmett’s memory, the family is holding a celebration of life on Nov. 19, 2022 at Schuette Daniels Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with service to follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting donations to Ronald McDonald House or Children’s Hospital (Herma Heart Center).
