Scott was known recently as "Buppy" to his four granddaughters.

He was a lifelong Boston Bruin fan. Scott had a love for playing baseball and had many awards and trophies from numerous leagues and tournaments throughout the UP. More often than not, you could find him in the backwoods of the Keweenaw on a snowmobile adventure. He enjoyed his Mustang and the Camp in retirement. Deer season was his most favorite time of year, always looking to bag the thirty-point buck. He was very proud of his 37-year sobriety.
