    In addition to being a great coach, Scott was also a great hockey referee. It was always a pleasure to see his name pop up on my schedule to work another hockey game with him. He will be missed.

    Sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. Had the pleasure of playing against him and with him on the softball field. Respectful opponent and an excellent teammate. Most importantly, a very nice person. Ran into him this past summer when he was umpiring in a youth softball tournament. He interacted with my players, joked around with them and was a good influence on them that day.
