    One of the best people I have ever met. I will miss his sense of humor and that laugh. He was one of those people that watched out for those he care about and I feel blessed to have known him all these many years. My deepest condolences to his family. Zac, your Daddy was the type of person we should all aspire to be.

He would do anything to help someone. God Bless! Condolences to his family and friends. It’s a sadder world without Scott in it!

    Scott was one of the first people I met when I moved to Hendersonville in 1976. We remained friends through graduation and although we hadn’t seen each other much recently, when we did we always laughed about the good ole days. He was as genuine as they come. RIP friend!
