  10. To the family of Scott. Scott was our next door neighbor. He was always friendly and would greet us whenever we would see each other. He will surely be missed in the neighborhood. We moved in next to Scott a little over 2 years ago. Previously, our house belonged to Tom\’s mother and father. When we moved in, we decided to do a major renovation to the house. The person most effected by this renovation was Scott. He could not have been more accomodating. He was a real gentleman, and we will miss him greatly as a neighbor and friend. P.S. As next door neighbors we would be glad to help the family in any way. Our address is 213, please let us know if we can assist. Trash, newspapers, etc.

  11. Scott, I only talked to you a few times, but I feel as though I knew you for a long time. Dee Dee talked about you often and shared your kindness and concern for your family and friends. You were part of our extended family in ways you did not know. We will miss you but will never forget you. Watch over us as you are surfing in heaven.

  12. Scott was one of the nicest customers we had.. It was always a pleasure dealing with him. He would go out of his way to ask how we were doing, always concerned for –the other persons welfare. He will be missed.He touched many of our employees and we grieve at his passing. Our condolences to the family.

  13. My sister, DeeDee, only had wonderful things to say about Scott. He was a kind, mellow, easy-going guy, and we\’ll really miss him at our family gatherings. We\’re so sorry for the tragic loss of your son and brother. You\’re in our thoughts and prayers. Laura Yoklavich and Tom Metzler

  14. We are so sorry to hear about the loss of Scott. We were first introduced to Scott by our dear neighbor, Scott\’s fiance, Dee Dee. We knew “Stu” as a beach lover and we know that he cared deeply for Dee Dee, Catherine and Ian. We also know that our granddaughter, Risa, felt that she had a friend in “Stuie” as she called him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and Dee Dee and her children. God Bless you during this difficult time. John & Norma Hydro and Risa Mejorado
