I met Scotty in 1942 in Red Fork Okla, we attended Junior and Senior High schools together. Sharing daybreak moments as we raised american flag over Daniel Webster High School. We worked together as maintenance crew in large department store in Tulsa Oklahoma where we aquired our nicknames of 'cottonpicker-1 and
cottonpicker-2 which we continued to use in our computer emails
and telephone conversations checking on each other. We enlisted in US NAVY together in 1945. We shared our 'family' events as a
'brother to brother' during the loss of our wives to Heavenly Father
and becoming a live-alone-person. Our friendship spans 77 years
and I call it a 'honor' to be a 'friend' Of Scotty.

To start with, my most sincere sympathy to all in the family. Next, I’ll share a couple of memories that come to mind when I think of your dad: He would always call when my yard light was out, & walk over to replace it. He had this way of leaning back a little, with his hands folded over his stomach when chatting for a bit. He enjoyed talking with everyone, & I remember your mom saying that when they went to the mall together he’d sit on a bench while she shopped. Sure enough, when she was done he’d be talking away to whoever was sitting next to him as if they’d known each other for years! He was a good man, and he certainly was very proud of you boy’s as well as your families! He’s now back with your mom, & knows peace.
