Scott worked in the HVAC industry for many years as well as in the service industry. But music was Scott's passion, he especially loved the drums and vocals. He most recently was the lead singer of Big Daddy and the Fender Benders Band, a band he founded. He also loved boating and being on the water...his boat was one of his prized possessions. Scott was always surrounded by a host of friends. He would give the shirt off his back for someone in need and was kind to everyone he met. He always lived life to the fullest and was the life of the party. Those who met and knew Scott will always remember his humor and generosity. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting him.
