  • Joy, Chris and family,
    Please accept the condolences from my family to yours.
    As you know Scott and I spent a few summers together in our younger years and his passing has hit me hard. He was very charismatic and everybody loved him. He won over the heart of our Grandmother and he and I were always considered very special to her.
    Scott has been a troubled soul for most of his adult life and just never seems to turn things around. I always hoped he would. I loved him like a brother when we were young and I thought he could be whatever he wanted to be.
    I pray that his soul finally finds peace and that he was able to make his peace with God before passing.

  • Joy, Chris, Coldan, Lakseh, & Jaevin, Sorry for your loss. I knew he was a troubled person and I hoped he’d turn his life around. May God bring comfort, peace, and healing during this difficult time. God Bless You all.

  • Aunt Joy,

    Always remember that you were a wonderful mother to Scott. Scott had some issues that only God could have helped him with. I always loved Scott and thought of him often. May his soul be free from his demons now. May you find peace in his passing and know that he is in a better place now.

    Love you always,
    Donna and Frank

  • I remember meeting Scott back in 2007 when I gave a cooking class at the Draper home in Fredericktown. Scott was a veteran and served in the Navy and my husband served in the Marine Corp and we got to talking about how we were from Hawai’i. We will remember how he was polite and friendly meeting us for the first time. We are saddened to hear of his passing and know one day we will meet again.
    Our prayers and thoughts to Joy and family. Thank you Scott for your service.
