I have seen a lot of tradesmen in my career – someone who could swing a hammer, cut a board or drive a nail. You were much more than that. You were the pinnacle – a Craftsman. I know I will look at your work for years to come and remember your skill.

We are all given one go around on this blue planet. I was lucky that my one go around coincided with yours. I never walked away from conversing with you that I didn’t feel better. You will be missed by all.

We are thankful for each and every greeting and smile Scotty was known for and the great conversations on the porch. We always enjoyed the faint sound of jazz music drifting from your back porch. We will always be here for you, Cheryl. Count on it. Dale and Susan Parker

Scotty, what a wonderful person who always made everyone feel better, he always had a smile and great personality. Scotty and I spend most weekends together in his home in Corinth or mine at Eastview during our teenage years. He had an old 1951 Chevy that we rode the roads in and around Corinth, one Saturday morning after a lot of rain we found a ditch and had to go for help, after this kind man pulled us out we asked him how much we owed him, to our surprise he said 10 dollars, we both looked at each other knowing full well we did not have a dollar between us. Scotty will be missed, please pray for peace and comfort for his family.
