I met Scott two years ago through Morningside Masonic Lodge. I will remember him as always offering to set up dinners, wash dishes, and help out where ever he could. His quick wit and jokes would always have us laughing and he worked on being a Mason more than most of us do. He will be sorely missed both as a brother and as a friend.

Scott was a good friend in high school who I had just recently reconnected with through social media. I remember him as always having a joke and a smile. Thank you for your service Scott you will be missed.
