My condolences to the family and friends. May he be greeted with open arms to the next journey of human life. RIP Scott , Musky


I am sorry to hear about Scott’s passing. I met him during my adolescence when my mother worked at FW Woolworth with Jean and Kelly. He was very much like a ray of sunshine, always a huge smile and an optimistic outlook to any situation. You all have my heart.


My sincerest condolences to all of Scotty's family. My prayers are with all of you.
