Scotty was a bright, compassionate, and exceptionally hardworking man. He was quick to laugh and always had a mischievous twinkle in his eye.

I was so sad to hear about Scotty’s passing. Even though I had only seen him at a few family gatherings, he impressed me with his kindness and concern for others and he always had a smile that would light up the room. My sincere condolences to his family.
