My sincere condolences to all of Scott's family and friends. I had the pleasure of working with Scott for three years while we were both employed at at American Eagle Insurance Company in Dallas in the 1990's and valued his friendship and professionalism. Scott's good sense of humor and great attitude, when things at the Company were not going well, that buoyed us all up. I will miss his kindness and the laughter that we shared together while we were co-workers there.

My condolences. Scott was a good person and friend, though it has been a few years since we would occasionally get together for a lunch or a beer. I always enjoyed Scott’s humor, his genuine nature, and philosophizing about life family or aviation. He had passion for all of it. I will miss him.

Scott and I were underwriters at AOA/Eagle/GAIC transition over the years and had a chance to travel together on agency visits. He was a kind, funny & caring person and he will be missed. My deepest sympathy to his family.

Sarah & Mark: Doc, Ginnie, and I are truly saddened with the untimely passing of your Dad Scott.
Although Scott and I did not know each other well, as only had 6-8 Family visits in our growing up years in Bay City, Michigan and 4 other as adults visit. The last visit was earlier this year and back in Bay City where I got to know You and brother Mark well. Your Dad Scott was beaming with pride as you stood up at the reunion and displayed the Carroll Family Tree that you had been working on the last year. Scott’s eyes were big and wide open and had that Scott Carroll infectious ear to ear smile. We all, 60 plus, shook Scott’s hand and praised him of his daughters presentation and how well, as a single parent, the bringing up of You & Mark.
As I am writing my memories of cousin Scott and thinking back of some of the meetings - one comes to mind. It took place long before Sarah & Mark were even thought of. It was one adventure that Scott would never forget. The wild ride in cousin Mike’s homemade dune buggy. It just so happens that my brother Chuck filmed it on Uncle Tom’s Home super 8 movie camera (state of the art at the time). A few years back, it was transferred to DVD, it is very poor quality and no sound in those days. I took a lot of coaxing and a ½ case of Stroh’s fire brewed beer, Scott’s 2 redneck cousins finally got him in the passenger’s seat of the over powered questionable brakes, dune buggy. His last complaint before takeoff was the seat belt, it would not catch form a firm containment to the seat. The locking mechanism was all wore out and full of mud. Cousin Mike said AHH do not worry about that we are not going on road just thru the woods by the house. All this is caught on film including a 10 minute full of terror ride for Scott. It think Scott attributes his receding hair line to this to this day.
Sarah & Mark I know this is an early start for you guys in the LIFE in this world, but with Scott’s genes and him looking over you things will be OK.

I met Scott in 2015 when I started working for the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Michigan State University. Scott was such a joy to be around, and he loved MSU so much. He was on the CANR alumni board, and even though he lived in Texas, he made sure to come back during Autumn Fest and other key events on campus. He was a true advocate for our college and I will miss him dearly. No matter if I went to see Scott in Texas, or he came to Michigan...his energy was always the same. My last time seeing Scott was at Autumn Fest 2018 before the MSU vs OSU football game. Even though I currently work for Ohio State he gave me a big hug and said he was proud of my success. That's just the type of guy Scott is. I'll miss you my friend!

I can't remember exactly when, but I do remember the 1st. time I met Scott. It was in the 80's. I was working at AOA & if memory serves me correctly, Scott was working at Global (the 1st one). We were at a Cooper X-Mas party & soon after we met I found out that Scott was both friendly & funny. We ended up sharing laughs while hanging out that evening & became fast friends. As fate would have it, Scott moved over to AOA in '89'ish & we worked in the SW Branch together before I was transferred to Atlanta. We worked thru the AOA to "Eagle" transition then we eventually both moved to USAU. In all those years we shared lots of laughs, stories, an appreciation for Chile Rellenos done right & a strong friendship. On the subject of laughs, I can honestly say that I've never laughed as much, or as hard as when we were yukking it up. So hard that it often brought tears to my eyes.

Scott was family to me & I know that my family in New Mexico feels the same as over the years they experienced the approachable, funny, smart and genuine person he was. Rest in Peace my friend, I will always remember you & the friendship we shared.

I knew Scott since the 1980’s. He was not only a fine aviation insurance underwriter but became a good friend. Whenever he came to Arizona he always made it a point to pay me a visit. My condolences to his family and friends. I shall miss him.

My first day at work in the industry as an underwriter was spent with Scott Carroll. For nearly a year, we were cube-neighbors and he never failed to patiently work with me on the most benign of questions and scenarios. I'll always recall the effort he spent helping me create the foundation of knowledge I have today in my career. A tremendous man and good person, he is missed by many.
