  • Veronica I am so sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. I went to High School with Scott. Our last names were in the beginning of the alphabet so we sat near each other every year.

  • My dearest friend Veronica, my heart is broken to hear about scott. The two of you shared a level of love and peace that many people only dream of. I wish we lived closer and were able to visit more throughout the years but I will always cherish the visits we did have. Thanksgiving, grad parties, your wedding :). You say scott would choose music over you, vron, but I suspect if forced to choose, Scott would totally choose you (and sneak a harmonica in his pocket – just because that’s scott)….your friend always – Sherri V (and boys)

  • Veronica Alyssa and Dakotah,
    Jason and I are so very saddened to hear of Scotts passing. Scott was always so fun and quirky you couldn’t help but smile when he was around. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.
    “This time was good, next time will be better.”

  • So sorry to hear this. My condolences to the family. It was a privilege to get to meet Scott a few years back. We had fun conversations and kept in touch from time to time. This news was definitely a shock.

  • Scott, you will be missed. It is one of my biggest regrets that I didnt get to talk to you one last time. I will pray for your family, and will hold on to my memories of you always.

  • May you make your way through the dark days ahead with the grace you’ve always shown. I’ll never forget the first time we met you in Olive Hill while expecting Allissa. You two have always been a bright song in the lives of others. Our hearts go out to you and the children. Smoke going up for all of you.

  • My heart is still broken at the loss of my best friend, however Scott would tell me to get over it and move on. So, I’ll do my best to do that…but not for awhile. Rest in peace my friend.

  • In breathing, grace may twofold be
    We breathe air in, we set it free.
    The in-breath binds
    The out un-winds
    And thus with marvels life entwines.
    Then thanks to God when we are pressed
    And thank Him when He grants us rest.


  • The Native world states that we who are left will be saddened, but it is our place to ‘remember’ what Scott did. Please grieve, but not for long. . . .because Scott would not want it that way. He would want you to be happy in the memories that he planted . . .and to bring others the same peace and love and joy that those memories bring you.

    Our memories – the times that Scott spent with our son, Thumper, at gatherings and powwows! He was priceless in his giving. . . . .

    I am sorry that we will not be there to celebrate Scott’s life with you. . . .but we will lift you all up in prayer and ask the Creator to send you the love and peace that He gives so freely.

  • Veronica and family, I was so shocked to see the passing of Scott I really liked you and Scott the first time we met .My heart is heavy may God bless you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Veronica and family, my deepest condolences. I was close to Scott in high school and we played in a couple of bands together. He was a lot of fun to be around I will miss him greatly.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Scott was a sweetheart in my book. He will be missed. You are all in my prays.

  • To the loved ones Scott left behind, I offer my sincerest condolences. I went to school with Scott, but sadly didn’t get the opportunity to know him as an adult until seeing him at our 25th reunion. The man I met seemed humble, kind, and loved his family very much. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May God grant you Peace in those moments where there seems to be none.

  • Dennis and family…..May God give you peace and grace at this time. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Dear Dennis and family,
    We just heard about your son and are so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts
    and prayers.

  • ” It is said that Teachers can be younger and or older but they are always able to teach us all something in our lives. Scott was a friend to me and I will always cherish the short time I was able to spend with him since 2013. He was an awesome Artist in every meaning of the word. Scott was a humbled person and I thank you Creator for letting me be a part of Scott’s life. ”

    Barry and Teresa Knight

  • Your families are in my thoughts and prayers. Scott and I were ‘down the country road’ neighbors for a couple of years and also fellow musicians when I lived with my grandparents.
