Hearing of Scott's passing tore my heart to pieces. He was such a dear friend to me and also one of the nicest men I have ever met. Scott and myself worked in P.C. processing together when I first came to Frito-Lay in 1998, our friendship carried over onto the little league football field! Whenever Brookville little league played Concord either he would find me or I would go find him to say hello. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel with a huge heart. Rest easy my friend until we meet again.
