Scott was a loving husband, an amazing dad, a brother, and a grandpa. He was loved by so many and touched so many lives. Scott attended Blue River Valley Schools.

He was currently employed for Fox Contractors Corporation of Ft. Wayne IN and worked as a Foreman, but he was more than just a foreman. Scott would continue to help the crew wherever he was needed and lend a helping hand. He loved bluegrass music and enjoyed playing his banjo.
Scott was a Godly man and loved the Lord. He attended Faith Chapel in Knightstown. He loved hunting and fishing.
