Scott was a very loving and compassionate person, who spent many hours talking to and helping his younger family members. He encouraged his younger cousins, nieces and nephews to get a higher education and to pursue their dreams. Scott could always be found with a large smile on his face. He was full of life and could always be found laughing. Scott was Duke’s #1 fan.
