Our hearts are filled with sadness but also love for Scott. He was part of a family much wider than just those in Essex. We have known him all his life and what a joy it has been to call him a friend. Always a wonderful smile and a hug for me. Remembering all he has accomplished in his life gives us hope. Hope for better tomorrow and that we will all meet again someday. Peggy, Now Gary and Scott and your other little ones will be together. May we see them when the time is right. Love you, Dear Friend.

Scott was a great Eagle and my friend. We worked together a few times on Benefits at the Club. He was always friendly and will be missed by many. God Bless you, Peggy

Scott was a true Eagle 🦅 he never let things hold him back , he rose above his challenges and soared , just like a Eagle . I was proud to call him my friend, I enjoyed working many fund raisers and charities with him . My heart is hurting , but yet it’s full of many memories that I’ll cherish for my time on earth —- Peggy May God wrap his arms around you and whisper his love , for I too care and love you

I was honored to have Scott in my Language class at the Iowa School for the Deaf.
He was also part of a Jr. High Choir that did three television Christmas programs.
We loved Scott as part of the ISD family. He has been lifted up on eagle's wings and placed in the palm of God's hand. He is etched in our hearts.
