He lost his leg in a motorcycle accident in 1995 and several years later returned to Iowa.
Scott was a loving and kind person who helped anyone who might need it, and he never met a stranger.
He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and boating. Almost always found with a smile on his face, he was quite the jokester. Scott loved spending time with his family, but had a special connection with all of his nieces and nephews.
