Sadly, I just learned of Scott's passing today. Scott was our next door neighbor at the veltri building. I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to Scotts family. He was such a nice man and always took the time to chat with my little girl. She just adored him. I am so sorry to hear such sad news.

The last time I was with my cousin Scot was at Christmas in 2015. It was probably the best Christmas night that our family has ever had - with plenty of laughs, music, beer and fun. I know that Aunt Eileen, Uncle Doug and Adele will have had a thousand more memories like that with Scot.
lots of love from Korin and the rest of us in England xx

Eileen, Doug and Adele:

So sorry to hear about Scot's passing. He was so young, yet he had lived so much. You will always have the memories you created and shared as a family, and I'm sure he is now watching over all of you from above.

You are and will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Even tho I'm just a "girl" driver, Scoty always had time for me and took me out a few times in my car to "show me how its done." He never made me feel any less of a driver. Heck of a nice guy. So sorry for your loss.

Our deepest condolences to the Mackenzie family and friends. I always put Scoty in the drivers seat to really show me how its done at different tracks. He always found me a better, faster, safer way around. Always witty, composed and had an easy going demeanor. He was a pleasure to be around and will be sorely missed.
