Scott enjoyed spending time with his family from vacations with his children, to decorating for Christmas at his parents or special date nights with Kim at Maggiano’s. He enjoyed traveling with his parents as a young boy and passed this down to his children. The family enjoyed going to Disney World over the years, hiking the mountains of Colorado and just this February spending time watching the sunset in Jamaica.

Kim remembers the pure joy in Scotts eyes as he talked about playing with the children, and worshiping with the Haitians and his daughters.

He is described as a selfless man that was strong and fearless. Scott made sure that the people around him had everything they needed.

    Life won’t be the same without our friend and neighbor being here to laugh with, talk with, or just seeing his smiling face each day. 21 years of friendship wasn’t long enough. The world will miss such a good man.
    Gone but never forgotten. RIP SCOTT

    Kim, I was and am, shocked at the news of Scott’s passing. From your updates on FB, I know he had some hard times right before Jesus took him home . I pray for God’s peace for you and your children . Praying that comfort comes in knowing Scott is with Jesus and that he is free of pain, never again will he know anything but peace, love , and joy. Love to u all.

    So sorry for your loss. Scott was a really good guy…we met in summer school when we were 16 and I have known him every since. He never gave up on life! He was a first class person, fun, kind and always respectful. What a blessing to know that I will see my brother in heaven! He will be missed…God bless.
