To Clare and family
I had the joy and privilege to serve on the Citizen's Review Board for a number of years with Scott . He always came to our monthly meeting prepared to take part in the discussion, and asked pertinent questions with respect and understanding.. With his life experiences and career choices he was able to make suggestions to assist the participants in their future plans. He was a good man, and very proud of his family.

I am sorry to hear of Scot’s passing. (He only used 1 “t” in his name). How unique? That was Scot! I got to know him quite well when he was part of my department at CAPECO. He was easy to work with and he took pride in doing his job well! I respected his devotion to his wife. May he Rest In Peace!
