Scott lived life to the fullest, making friends wherever he went. He had a big heart, a great sense of humor, and loved spending time with his family. After graduating from Roosevelt High School in 1980, he spent years in the home repair business which evolved into owning and managing rental property, often working alongside his dad. He utilized his home repair skills by building a home on Kelleys Island where the whole family spent many leisure filled weeks biking, kayaking and cruising the island in the golf cart.
Scott and Penny bought a condo in Ft Myers, Florida and that became the family winter retreat. Whether in Florida or Kelleys Island, Scott attracted numerous friends who delighted in his company and kept in touch when he was back in Kent. His warm smile will be missed.
