Scott was married for 22 years to the love of his life and best friend, Lisa (Previdi). They were "wingmen" for each other. He was an incredibly proud, devoted, and loving father to his three children, Jake (19), Ava (17), and Cole (14). Although humble, you could see the pride in Scott's face when he spoke about his children. He enjoyed coaching his kid's sports teams as well as watching them play football, lacrosse, swimming, baseball, and cheerleading.
A devoted family man first, Scott was a craftsman who loved home projects, working in the yard and fishing with his children. He enjoyed his family vacations to Winnipesaukee, annual family ski trips, fun trips with friends to Bermuda, and weekend trips to Gloucester.
Scott was friendly, kind, warm, and easy going. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to friends and family. He was in his element in the company of his family and close friends, stoking a fire, playing cornhole and drinking an IPA. He always saw the positive in people, shared a kind word and had a welcoming smile on his face.
He loved all dogs and all dogs loved
. Dogs seemed to sense that he was a good man. He will be sorely missed by his loyal black lab "Lucky"
