When I heard this news from my dad, i was heartbroken. We lived with Scottie for 6 months and he paved the way for our entire life. I miss him so much and i pray that little Huxley is okay. It is so sad that he wont remember his wonderful momma. They were always the life of the party and could cheer anybody up.

Scottie
We met thru Jimmy years ago ~ And it didn’t take long for you to steal my heart! You were a sweet good honest man. And you held my hand thru one of my most difficult moments in life. That I will never forget.
It hurts my heart that your life and your beautiful daughters were taken so soon! I don’t think I have truly been able to wrap my head around it. But am so thankful I was able to attend your celebration of life yesterday to say my goodbyes.

Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your beautiful life.

Rest In Peace sweet man ~

I don’t remember the first time I met Scottie, because we were in diapers. We spent so much time together as little people. So many gatherings. Christmas Eve’s for how many years? I remember our first day of kindergarten. We were so excited and so scared. How many times did we miss the bus because we got distracted or were hidden behind that rock? It’s hard to wrap my head around a world that you no longer dwell in.

I am sending so much love to my Sluman family.

I was not the closest person to Scottie but it felt like I was everytime he came in to hangout at the spur. He was like a dad/brother I always loved to pick on, his nickname was Scottie Potty cause he had a potty mouth 😆

Any time I think of Scottie I think of a happy man who always lit the room up, even when he was scaring all the customers with his loud mouth... he really was a breathe of fresh air.

I wish I could have had more time with him and watched the awesome relationship he has with his sister Chelley. I could tell they loved eachother so strongly I really wanted to be like their relationship with my little brother. ♥

He will truly be missed and my heart goes out to his daughter and his whole family and miss Chelley. He felt like family to me and If there is a day I get to see him again in spirit, it will be a happy one.

Part of a special family gone , you always helped me think about your family that I spent so many years with as a child.

My heart hurts as I know how special Riley was to you. I have two daughters just as special and from a distance I saw your endless love for her.

Bless you and Riley and the rest of the Sluman family

Scottie -
Our time together, always telling me it was my fault- you drove a truck, turned wrenches. Because that’s what I had done. Your passion for everything you did was amazing! Will never forget all of our adventures together. Camping and boating trips, working on cars, drinking a cold beer. Most cherished times were shared riding in the cab of a truck, moving equipment, oversized anything, the hole in the wall burger places for lunch. RIP little brother!
Love you 💔🇺🇸💔🍻

I have loved you your hole life . So many good times in your 54 years . Not going to have you to answer all my questions . I was your older brother but you taught me so much . You were always there for me . We didn’t talk at all for a couple of months and I never new why . Then on Sept 20 my birthday this year you came over said happy birthday old man I love you and we talked for 45 min . The next day saw you loading the van so I went and helped . Told you to have a good day and to be safe . If I’d would have known I’d never see or talk to you again I would have never let you go.
I miss you so bad 💔 tell dad hi and give him a big hug and kiss for me .
