I knew Scott in high School at CHS.  We ran in the same Clinton circles.  He was a terrific friend then.  We got much closer when we were attending Weber State.  We had a lot of adventures together and rode with each other to school almost every day.  I remember changing a clutch in the Weber State parking lot on that old 59 Chevy he had.  He sure loved that old car.  I have since lost touch and wish I had not jdone that.  I think and have often thought about those times together.  What an honor to have had him as a friend.  I knew he had diabetis, because one day he went into shock and we had to stuff candy bars down him that day.  Scared the daylights out of all of us that day.  Love to all of his family.  This great guy was taken too soon.  Mark Murray
