Scott and I and a few dozen others adopted each other in a far away place called Larryland when we were struggling to know and define ourselves as fledgling adults. Scott wasn't the most impulsive of us, and his quiet thoughtfulness was able to add some maturity to the group dynamic. Indeed, he could project a dour, cautious attitude that made him seem grumpy. But at that moment his eye would twinkle and he'd propose some brash, irreverent plan. Grounded yet infused with a wee bit o' mischief. You knew when he spoke, he had already put some serious consideration into his remarks, including suggestions for fun. I'd share more stories from that era but there are Court Restraining Orders and NDA's...

Years later I visited his awesome new photo studio. For years I had been the avid photographer amongst our clan, and now this guy had leap-frogged me to set up his own studio. And it included several clever innovations. A few years later I hired him to shoot portraits of my Wasband and I. Both experiences proved that he had quickly become a talented photographer with a good eye for composition AND managing people during a shoot.

Recently, I was surprised and delighted to see Scott at my Dad's memorial in Orchard Park. It blew me away to think that Scott was even able to find out about Dad's passing, let alone bother to attend! But Scott was always thoughtful and gracious, a consistently classy man. He told me of his extensive teaching efforts and achievements, again a surprising and competent new skill set. I'm relieved that our kids had a man like Scott as an instructor and role model.

When I got news of his, our loss, I put on my Montgomery tartan jacket, opened a can of Genny Cream Ale (a regional NY beer sold in Nevada now??!!) and toasted a good friend. Then I had another... Thank you buddy, for being family!!
