Scott lived life to the fullest and pursued many hobbies with a passion. He loved the outdoors, especially a good game of golf with his closest friend Craig Anderson. He was a proud member of the NRA and enjoyed hunting, fishing, woodworking, and camping with his family. He was also an avid aviator having earned his pilot’s license. Family game nights were very important and could become quite competitive. His love for music began at a young age and was a large part of his life. His mother taught him to play the piano and discovered he was quite gifted even composing his own music. There was not an instrument he could not play.
