  • So sorry that Scott is gone. He was so special to our family and was a ring bearer in our wedding. He will surely be missed.
    In my thoughts and prayers.
    Aunt Brenda Amrine

  • My deepest condolence. When he came into our offices to repair or check on something, he would stuck his head in to say hi. He always had a smile and a friendly word. We will miss him. Rest In Peace.

  • Scott always had a friendly demeanor and smile on his face when he would come into the jail to work. Rest in Peace.

  • Our deepest sympathy goes out to Scott’s family from the Delaware County Auditor’s office. We will keep Scott’s family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Scott had a great sense of humor and we are deeply saddened by his passing.

  • They say you can gauge the measure of a man by the influence you witness him having on others. If that holds true, there is no ruler, yardstick, tape measure, odometer, or map that can do Scott justice. I have witnessed an outpouring of emotion from men that called him Brother. I have seen people step up to the plate to ensure his family is being looked after and cared for without being asked or reminded. I have seen people rearrange their own lives to ensure that the right thing gets done. Scott’s influence extends beyond his family, beyond his friends, beyond his Brothers and his Lodge. His influence is extending today beyond his own time here on this mortal plane. He will be sorely missed by many, but many were made better men by Brother Scott. For all the light he shone and the ones who were guided by it, may Scott find even more light now in the presence of The Grand Architect of the Universe.

    So Mote It Be

  • To the Amrine family and friends please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one Richard. Very soon Jesus Christ will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21: 1-5.

  • It has been such a honor and a pleasure to have worked with Scott and to have had him on our Maintenance team.
    I will miss when Scott talked about Katie and Ellie and how he was filled with pride when sharing what they maybe doing in school, activities they are involved in and fun and games at home. Scott had brought in a poster from Ellie for us on why we should by her Girl Scout cookies we didn’t need a poster but Scott wanted Ellie to learn the value Charity work. Scott was always there for the Girls whether they maybe ill or need picked up taken somewhere he was there.
    The Love that he had would just beam when he spoke of Margo.

    Scott was with for such a short period time but has left a everlasting impression not just on the Maintenance Dept. but at every facility he helped maintain.
    Scott maybe gone but he will not be forgotten.

  • My sincerest condolences to the Amrine family and friends. Scott was a popular and highly respected employee of Delaware County and he will be missed by all who knew him. Your County Commissioners, along with all of Scott’s co-workers, deeply mourn his loss and wish him Godspeed.

  • Our deepest condolences to all of Scott’s family. He was our next door neighbor for 8+ years. Always saying hello offering help. He will be missed.
