    Scott never met a stranger. Always willing to lend a helping hand. Had the best sense of humor and loved his family so much. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Uncle Scott was unfailingly kind and I never saw him lose his temper or sweet disposition. I was very grateful to have him and Aunt Sandy as a home base while growing up. I love you all and your family is in my prayers.
