I went to school with him and though we were not close, I always felt he would do anything in his power to help if it was within his power to do so.

    To Brenda, Joe, Tom, Wayne and any of the Davis Family I never had the pleasure of knowing, I am so sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss. Scott made a positive impact upon me and everyone he met. It saddens me to realize that our paths will not cross again but his memory is strong in my heart and the hearts of many. May you find comfort today and the days ahead.

    Scott went to school with my husband, hung out and loved to party in his younger years. I knew him more recently. When he would come in to Peggy’s Cafe for a take out order and always check my ring finger to see if I had forgotten my wedding band. In his words, to see if “My old man was in the dog house again”. He took a chance on our son and gave him a job with no experience and the last time I saw him was in the dr. office he was leaving as I was coming in. He was in wonderful spirits. Smiling, flirting with a nurse and in a good mood. I’m glad that my last memory of him was with a smile on his face. I hope all of you, his family will remember him that way also. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God Bless you and comfort you. We were all blessed for having known him, may he rest in peace.
