Stacy and Family, So sorry to hear about Scott. We send you our deepest condolences for your families loss. You are in our prayers and thoughts.

Scott was my next-door neighbor with whom I enjoyed countless summer evening games of pickle and kick-the-can. He was my squad leader in the Wooster High School marching band who helped me believe I was good enough to be part of that excellent organization. He was patient with me and always supportive and kind. He died too young. The world is a richer place for his having lived in his kind, kind ways.

Scott was our next-door neighbor growing up. We spent countless hours playing kick-the-can and pickle on summer afternoons and evenings. He was my squad leader on the Wooster High School marching band. He helped me believe I could actually remember where I was supposed to march when and play the music from memory at the same time. He gave me confidence and was always supportive. I remember and am grateful for his encouragement and his kindness. Scott, the world is a better place for your having spent time on this earth even though we wanted more time with you. Your kindness will always bless us.

My deepest sympathy. Scott was a talented and wonderful man. He will be missed.

My deepest sympathy. Scott was a talented and wonderful man. He will be missed.

Dear Stacey, I apologize that we were not able to attend Scott's memorial service. He was a true inspiration to the church and us. You and Scott are shining examples of good and faithful members as well as quality people. We will truly miss him. Respectfully, Tom & Betty Davis
