Scott had a life-long passion for animals, dirt biking, and aquariums. Those who knew him were well acquainted with the sounds of many air pumps from multiple aquariums. Scott was exceptionally gifted when it came to technology and coding. He had a brilliant mind and could come up with innovate solutions that others would have never considered. His quick wit and sharp mind will be missed.
Cremation rites have been accorded and a small private gathering will be held for family and close friends at a later date.
