Scott entered the workforce after the army.  He was united in marriage to Kristen Dutcher and to this 7-year union they were blessed with three children.  Scott was currently employed by the Village of Table Rock where he was the maintenance supervisor.  Scott had many interests and hobbies.  Some of his favorites included hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, tending to his cattle, teaching his children to farm, and spending time with his family and friends.  His most proud accomplishment was being a father.  Scott was very fun loving and easy to get along with.  He was a prankster and a jokester that he will be most remembered.
