Scott, you were always a wonderful person and great friend. My last memory of you is helping Me and Tricia pack the moving truck when we moved to South Carolina lots of laughs and tears when we pulled out! . You always cared and kept in touch. May god wrap you and your family in his arms and give you peace. You will be missed! Love you my friend!

Scott was my “bike guy” for the last 12 years. He became indispensable to me, and he will be sorely missed. Not just as the person who would drop everything to help me out when I needed him for whatever bike issue I had at the time, but as a friend who would help me with whatever issues came up, however remotely they were related to the bikes.
It started with his expertise on a friend’s bike crash, which he correctly diagnosed in seconds as due to a malpositioned screw in the rear mount that caused the wheel to jam, which others had missed. For my own crashes he was an invaluable help in replacing sadly damaged bikes on two occasions. And he was also invaluable with the insurance issues involved.
No job was too small or too big for Scott to give it his full attention and get me back on the road in the shortest amount of time possible. Always with that friendly smile and generous heart.
I miss him. My bikes miss him.

My sincerest condolences to the family, friends, acquaintances and everyone else Scott leaves behind.

I dealt with Scott on a professional level, but in the course of getting to know him over the years, ended up dealing with him quite a bit on a personal level as well.

I stayed on his couch a couple times for a few days while visiting the city, and always enjoyed the time spent hanging out, talking bikes and life.

Whenever either of us would end up in the other's city, we'd go out to dinner to catch up, and we always had a great time! I was really looking forward to seeing him in a couple weeks.

Scott was a very special person, gregarious to a fault, never met a stranger. His warm smile and infectious laugh will be missed.
