One time I found my mom’s silver in the trash , back when we burned trash. It wasn’t on purpose but my mom was horrified!
Julie Vidich and I went to Scott’s jewelry shop and he went right to work. He couldn’t return the silver to its original state but he came very close.
Scott saved the day.
He and Connie were wonderful neighbors! They don’t get much better than that.

My prayers are to the family . I knew Scott for many years, Scott and Connie was two of the
most giving people I knew. They would go fishing and bring back hundreds of fish cleaned
and give them to all their friends, they would go and bring back blueberry 's and share them.
They gave their time to any one that needed help. They was two special people.

Impeccable character, honest and genuine caring for all. Never a bad word about anyone and always there to help. We were spoiled by Scott and Connie for well over a decade as their next door neighbors While we were both sick with the flu, Scott came over to bury our Dalmatian that had passed away from old age. Always bringing fish, peach pies, and Christmas goodies. We’ve visited each other several times after moving to Concord and will miss this wonderful man and neighbor. It breaks our hearts, and condolences to the family.

Scott was a wonderful Uncle to me and I will miss him sorely!
He was kind, patient, always teaching and full of love.
I and my brothers and sisters would always love going to Scott and Connie's house to celebrate birthdays, Chirstmas's and stay overnight. We would play in the back yard and basement and always had a great time.
Scott really cared about his family, his community and his country and did his best to make things better for his family, his community and his country.
Thank you, Scott, for being the fine Uncle you were to us!!

I tell people I had a story book childhood and Scott certainly helped. All I can say is he was a saint of a man. I have so many wonderful memories playing in his basement with such fun toys. But perhaps my fondest memory was when I showed him a card trick. I was an aspiring magician you see. He took my deck to the workbench and shaved it for me! Coolest toy ever!

We became "over the fence" neighbors with Scott and Connie when we moved to Jackson Street 14 years ago. I can't exactly remember when we first met them, but I remember that they were always so kind and pleasant. Connie would do most of the talking, but Scott would add his two cents in between. The smile and wave given would have been its own reward, but they were oh-so generous in many more ways. Scott rototilled my garden in the spring one year. I was out shoveling up the dirt the old-fashioned way when what did I see but a Troy-Bilt coming around the sidewalk! Blue gills were shared faithfully after trips to Canada. The delicious cheese spread came at Christmas. When a maple tree came down, he let me cut up the wood to heat our house. If we tried to give them anything ever, it almost felt like we were offending them. They were the givers and never saw themselves as the receivers. Scott and I had a short visit before he moved to Jackson. I remember him telling me how terribly ill he had been in his late teens. He said that they thought he was going to die. I often wondered if he felt God had graced him for a special purpose. I know I did. He, along with your mother, were examples of the kinds of people the world needs more of. I think of them every time I walk by the house. I smile to think of them together again in heaven. I bet the blue gills are really big up there!

We moved across the street from Scott and Connie in 1976. You couldn’t ask for better neighbors. They were the kindest most giving people. They would do anything for us without expecting anything in return. They picked up mail and newspapers, when we would be gone on short trips. We we were always recipients of fish from their trips to Rice Lake, and produce from their garden. I can remember Scott coming over to hold a ladder for me when I was cleaning eaves troughs, without me asking. When my wife Linda was dying, there was food coming constantly, and help with leaf raking, etc. the list goes on and on. I could write a book on their kind deeds. It seemed like Scott and I would meet regularly in the middle of our street t to catch up on the latest neighborhood news. RIP Scott!

Mr. and Mrs. Tuthill (Scott and Connie) were like a second family to me. Their oldest son, Jim and I were best friends. They let me help build a sail boat. What a wonderful memory. We spent summers at their Duck Lake family cottage and hours and hours at the jewelry store. Mr. Tuthill was very kind and patient, the perfect role model. Thoughts and prayers to all that knew him, especially Kathy and John.

I remember when Scott and Connie (Mr and Mrs Tuthill to us) had the jewelry store. I was hanging around there one day when a Mom with kids came into the store. She had what used to be a beautiful diamond ring wrapped up in a bit of cloth. It was a family heirloom that she was responsible for. She cried as she explained that she was showing it to another relative and they dropped it and accidentally stepped on it popping the stone loose and damaging the band. She was trying to explain to Scott that she would have to leave it and pay for the repairs over time . Scott didn't hear a word she said as he went to his bench and reset the stone, straightened out the band and dropped it into his sonic cleaner. He dried it off wrapped it back in the cloth and handed it back to her. He refused to take any money from her as it was obvious she needed every penny she had. I am sure that he was just trying to be nice but I couldn't help but think I want to be just like him. His family was right across the street from mine and I have many great memories of them all. John and Kathy I am so sorry for your loss. He was a great, kind and giving man.

Scott was the kind of person that we need in this world right now. He was the kindest, most giving and pleasant person that anyone could be. He always had time to visit and was interested in many things. We remember stopping at their house and going downstairs to see clockworks galore. They expounded to us when the fishing laws changed in Canada and it was funny.
