Scott was married to his high school sweetheart for 39 years, they shared a deep faith and trust in the Lord. Everything he did, he did with integrity. He was in construction most of his working life. The last 15 years were spent as a general contractor building custom homes. Scott was a man of many talents, he was a remarkable musician. He played guitar and sang in a band, around many bon fires, and small gatherings. He was a world-champion sled dog driver, coached high school roller hockey, fast-pitch softball and played slow-pitch softball for over 45 years. Scott also loved boating, skiing, dirt track racing, flying RC airplanes and anything to do with big trucks. But what he enjoyed the most was loving, helping and spending time with his family and friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
