Scott was a good friend of mine from Sinclair. He could always make me laugh and I enjoyed working with him in the PAC. We lost contact after I transferred but I was able to find him on social media last summer. Im so glad we were able to catch up. Scott will be truly missed and I will continue to keep his wife and children in my thoughts and prayers.

I knew Scott from Sinclair. I was there as his life changed from single to married to father. Jen used to bring the boys to visit. He enjoyed his time at Sinclair and working with the people. We will miss him . Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jen, Mason and Max
