David, Abbie, and I were so shocked and saddened to learn of Scott's sudden passing. He was a part of our lives for so long; in fact, Scott was in David's life for almost 40 years! Feeling so blessed, though, that we got to spend some time with him in September when he and Donna came to watch Abbie play soccer.

We will greatly miss him, his outgoing ways, his huge smile, and many talents but we take comfort in his sweet reunion with Tamera (to whom he was such a loving and devoted husband to for so many years in sickness and in health), his mom, and greatest of all, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Please know that we are praying for the rest of Scott's family, his loving sisters, and especially for his precious daddy who we know Scott so adored.

To the Williams' family,
So sorry to hear of Scott's passing. I still remember his laughter and his out going personality. He never met a stranger. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Scott's passing was so unexpected! We never had the pleasure of meeting Donna but, ran into Scott once after they married, he seemed very happy. We were best of friends for many years with Scott and Tamara. Danny and I made many motorcycle trips years ago with them. Now they're both in heaven, short but sweet lives. We're praying for the Family's and know that God is with them all.

Donna - Scott was always so full of life and one of the most kindhearted men I've ever known. His infectious smile and love of life are an example for all. His compassion and love of God was seen in his care of and commitment to both you and Tamara. It's so hard to believe that he is gone and it reminds us of how precious each day truly is. So thankful that he got to spend the last years with someone as special as you. May you feel God's peace during this time of loss.
