“My heart is heavy with sorrow for Lena, Jaz, Skylar, and Zach with Scott's passing. Scott was a kind and generous person and one of the most dedicated, loving and selfless parents I have ever known. I was so fortunate to be able to talk with him recently at MGMC and he caught me up with kids and Lena with love and pride.
My world is better because I knew Scott.

I know of the grief, shock, and loss you feel as I suddenly lost my father when I was 10 years old.
Your loss now is so palpable and your heart aches. But, your wonderful memories of Scott will always be there in your heart and will be a source of comfort to you now and forever. God bless your family!

“Scott was a wonderful human being with a beautiful mind. Although I only worked with him for a few months, I felt like I had known him for much longer. Not only was he highly intellectual and thoughtful, he was also very kind, always putting others before himself. Scott was a quiet and studious person, mostly, like myself, but we would talk up a storm, together. I don't think many people understood Scott because they only knew him on the surface. I am saddened by this tragic news of my friend, Scott. I offer my most sincere condolences to Scott's family and loved ones. Let us always remember him cherish the time we spent together.”

“I knew Scott in recent years for his skills as a computer (and related technology) whisperer. What baffled me was a breeze for him but he was always always patient and polite, quickly fixing anything requested, always sure to add 'now call me if you any questions or problems at all' and then off quickly. I would see him in passing in the parking lot or hallway. He was always off to solve another tech problem for someone. He was one of the nicest people I have ever known and will always be remembered for that. We are all blessed for sharing time with him.”

“I extend my deepest sympathy to Scott's parents and siblings. I was close to him in high school. We used to hang out a lot. I still remember his rock 'n roll picture with the long hair! I won't forget how sweet he was to me. I wished I had gotten a chance to see him, but had not since we graduated. Our class is so sad right now. ”
