Scott was our dear friend for 50 years. Scott was highly intelligent, quietly brave and faced his challenges directly -- including the MS that ravaged his body and cut short his globe trotting adventures. Scott loved his mom and family. We enjoyed his happy updates after visits from nieces, nephews and new babies! Scott was a devoted and charitable friend to us and his many friends - including several young people across the world. We will miss our conversations and his insights on music, tech, art, culture, world affairs and cooking. We will especially miss his witty comments and contagious laughter. RIP our dear brave, smart, kind, funny Scott...
I had the pleasure of knowing Scott through my mother Janet Laidlaw, he was such a positive friendly person and I always looked forward to seeing him. I'm lucky to have fond memories of him visiting and sometimes gifting me CD's and Hubba Bubba when I was young. I will never forget his kindness and will always think of him when I hear that music. Thank you Scott, rest in peace.
Scott's love of music, art, literature and just life in general was and will continue to be an inspiration for me.
I am Roseanne. Scott was a best friend of mine for almost 50 years. He loved music and loved to dance. He was adventurous and brilliant and loved by all. I will miss him dearly
I am Janet Laidlaw's younger sister. I grew up with Scott. Some of my most memorable laughing moments are memories with Scott. In the face of adversity he would say something so blunt and we would just start laughing. He taught me how to laugh at my self and others in a good way. I will miss him and carry his spirit with me always. Love you Scott.
