    Remember Scott from high school days, dirt biking, and reconnected later in life after his military service years.
    Scott always had the best knowledge about all the dirt bikes out there, vintage or otherwise, and he was always personable and kind. I’m honored to have known this good man, and may his family be able to seek solace in his greatness as a human being.
    Ride In Peace, Scott, and we will all meet again at the next level. God bless you, man.

    Rest in Peace Old Friend.
    I’ll miss you and our phone conversations.
    Prayers for those he left behind.

  8. Craig Macdonald says:

    I miss my dad everyday. We may have not seen or talked to each other for periods of time as we both were taking care of things on our own time, but whenever we did sit to talk we just picked it up like we never missed a beat. The man loved to talk. He loved to go back and forth with you. I miss those long phone calls or those discussions face to face about relationships, the military, joe Biden being a Fu*k tard, motorcycles, family history, or whatever we decided to talk about. I miss his laughter, his strong hugs, his laugh, and everything else. I try to strive to be the man that he was. I hope one day to be all and more. That’s what he would have wanted. You may be gone from this earth, but I will always be with you and vice versa. I see you in my face. I see you in my children. You will never be fully gone.

  9. Timothy Brockway says:

    I knew Scott back in high school. We were dirt bike buddies.
    He turned me on to my 1973 CZ. He told me where I could buy one in a crate at a warehouse. I still have it.
    We each had SS El Caminos to transport our bikes.
    They were a sporty hot car to have in its day.
    Ride on Scott. You will be dearly missed.
