Scott you will be missed. Kims dad and I enjoyed your visits and you'd try to bring the grandchildren if you could. Your last visit was to see Jerry in Springfield,Mo. at the hospital there on.Jan.4,2019. And you guys had Sydney & Sloan with you so we could visit them. You got out of the hospital to go eat Mexican food. Thanks for that! It would be the last visit for Kim to see her dad alive as he passed the next day. I know you probably didn't feel well that day but you made sure she got to be there for him. All I ever saw was the Love you had for Kim and the boys & grandchildren. You loved them all. Go rest high on that mountain and continue to watch over family! I will miss you always!

My Uncle Scott was an amazing man. He was there for me anytime I needed him, I can’t remember him ever saying the word “no” or turning me away no matter how stupid I was being at the time. Uncle Scott miss and love you so much!

I was always known as Scott’s little sister. He did take great care of me growing up, didn’t want the older boys hitting on me. I was always mean to the girls that came around our house to see him ( I was a bully). My brother is the one that made me a little tuff Tom boy. He taught me how to ride dirt bikes and shoot BB guns. We all grew to have a love for camping. My brother loved sitting by the fire even in the am hours with a cup of coffee. I will miss him dearly!

Had a lot of fun joking around with Scott. Went motorcycle riding together. Worked on some of his punch press dies at Beech. Great guy.
