Scott only lived to be 22 years old, but he accomplished more than most people accomplish in a lifetime. He grew up in a loving family, the fifth of six children, in River Edge, New Jersey. He attended River Dell High School, where he was the captain of the football and basketball teams, and later played both sports at Hobart College, where he majored in economics and minored in Americans Studies. He was an exceptional son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandson and loyal friend.
Scott loved life, and experienced more than many people do, because he had such a positive attitude. If you met Scott, you would be taken by his trusting eyes and warm smile. He chose to see the good in people. He never judged people, but respected them for their beliefs. He was smart, sensitive, funny, athletic and genuine. He was unselfish and compassionate. Everyone who met him admired and loved him because of his warm spirit and kindness.
He had a much to live for, and would have made great contributions to this world. He was far from ordinary, as everyone said who knew him. Even though he was only 22 when he died, he lived more, loved more and experienced more than many can say they have. He brought so much joy into our lives; it is hard to imagine that we can go on without him. Our hearts ache, but when we think of Scott, and his exceptional life, we smile.
