Scott was an amazing husband, father, son and friend. He had the most infectious smile. When you first met him you felt like you were visiting with an old friend. He has left this world a better place. But he has also left this world way too soon. Please pray for his wife Beth and his sons. This will be a huge loss to overcome. God speed Scott.
