Scotty was very spunky and charming and a man who loved his family deeply. He was especially proud of his sons Joseph and James. He had a special connection and adored his grandparents. He had several close friendships that remained close and loyal over many years especially the Haddam, Connecticut Churchill Road buddies along with friends from Chalker Beach, Old Saybrook, Connecticut.
Scotty loved living in Florida, fishing, BMX bike riding and being a great chef. Scott’s half smile smirk always made others smile. Many loved Scott and he loved them making fond memories of a lifetime.
A private family memorial service will be held in Melbourne, Florida.
