I worked with Scott many years ago at Livonia transmission. I remember him coming in the trailer with his Kool cigarettes and demanding I have coffee ready. Of course I did not have his coffee ready but got a big rock and drew a picture of his face on it and threatened him daily.
Scott had a great personality and a smile to match, I loved working for him.
My deepest sympathies to Scott's family and friends.

My memories of Scott begin with him working on his cars in garages in Michigan, trying to keep the vehicles going, while spending as little money as possible. I have several memories of him spending evenings at my parent's house on Barlow, always making himself welcome when needed. A vague memory of traveling with Gary Parko, to visit him in N. Carolina, while he was in the military. Another vague memory of him doing side work at a motel in downtown Detroit, and a concrete pour gone bad. The clearer memories I have, are of various construction jobs in Florida, Georgia, and Texas, with all of these jobs having their separate challenges.
The constantly recurring theme in all of these was the balance between family, and the hard work, and the long nights it sometimes took, to make sure his family (Sharon and the girls) had what they needed.
Life wasn't always easy for him early on, but hard work, and perseverance, along with some "unique" ways of solving problems, always got him through. (The statute of limitations has long since expired on some of his solutions!)
His devotion to family was something to be admired. Their happiness and well being meant everything to him. Times spent with him, and his family, were among the best examples of what a loving, close, family could be.
What I will remember most is his hearty, infectious, laugh, that let everyone around him know, that even though life could be hard, it was still meant to be enjoyed to it's full extent!
