I was a McKinley kid so I didn't get the opportunity to meet Scott until 10th grade at SW. It didn't take long for me to understand why he was so well-liked by his Zimmerman buddies. He was just one of those guys who was just fun to be around. I couldn't make it to the reunion but I was fortunate enough to have been one of the guys who played golf with Scott the day before and then we all sat around the clubhouse patio drinking a few cold ones and swapping stories with the Zimmerman and McKinley crew. I can still visualize Scott sitting across the table from me with that big smile on his face. He truly was enjoying the moment. I am grateful that I had the chance to share those moments with him and all of his friends. Scott will truly be missed by those people whose lives he touched in a very positive way. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family.
I have nothing but GOOD memories of my time on earth with Scott. Playing ball at Zimmerman, playing ball at the "mud hole", playing ball in the street. Jamming 5 of us in Dave Kollar's Mustang and cruising the "A" and Kewpees. Sorry to have missed the last reunion that Scott attended, but got a chance to play golf with him and a few friends a couple of years back, which gave him a chance to beat me again (as always). God now has one of the world's best smiles at his side.
I haven't seen Scott for many years after Fisher #1 closed. However, I will never forget working with him and golfing on the team with him sharing many laughs and stories. God speed Scott and "GO BLUE" forever!
Our deepest sorrow and sympathy to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Tom, Candy and Chad Klamert
Love you Uncle Scott! You will be missed by everyone you every met! Love you Tash and Dustin!
Scott was always a fun dude to be around, always had the bright side up. You could always see that smile coming up the street two blocks away. Been 44 years, can still see it. Heck of a ball player, serious. Great on grounders, like I never was. But he was short, low to the ground, like about half of that crew. And coordinated. Big advantage. One of the friendliest and happiest kids I knew growing up on the ol' west side. So long Scott. Peace.
I don't know what to say about losing my best friend. We'd been through so much together. Marriages,divorce,kids and grandkids. Our daughters are even best friends. I just know I'll never have a friend like that again and it hurts. We are friends.... we are friends....
Scott was truly one of the good guys. He would always put a smile on my face when I saw him walk in the room. I enjoyed our time golfing and playing poker together. We would always get into that all familiar MSU/UofM and we both knew it was all in good fun and it truly was. There was many a night I would go home with my ribs hurting from laughing with Scott. I will truly miss him! To Dustin and Tasha/Chris keep your heads up, this is the difficult time! You will always have the wonderful memories of your Father! RIP Scott you will truly be missed.
It was so good to see Scott at the class reunion a few weeks ago.The guys were able to play golf together, just like the olds days at Swartz Creek, when they walked or rode their bikes! The day when Scott got the hole in one, was a tale we never heard the end of. He never got tired of telling about it!
He was more than one of the guys in our neighborhood. They were not only friends but like the brothers I never had!
Those were the days when summers were long, and you were outside till dark! Those days are gone, but we won't forget the happy times we had with Scott ! He was always sweet ,kind, and always made us laugh ! He will be sadly missed and in our hearts forever!!
I was so happy to have spent some time with Scott at the reunion and the golf outing the day before. He was an early childhood friend that I spent countless hours with playing sports with at Zimmerman or someone's driveway basketball hoop. We used to play golf in the summer (for 50 cents)at Swartz Creek virtually everyday. I will never forget being with him when he scored his hole-in-one on the 6th hole. I was able to share his excitement and see his infectious smile that seemed to remain on his face for a long time. In fact, I'll bet he is smiling down on us today, as he is already making new friends, and getting ready to tee it up again.Our thoughts and prayers will be with you. You will be missed.
my prayes are with scotts family. I got to see Scott at the reuion and talk with him. Scott touch my life and I know he touch so many lifes. May he rest in peace.

I have many fond memories of Scott from 7th grade through high school. He always had a smile on his face and a great sense of humor. I'm so glad we were able to talk at our reunion. My prayers go out to his family and all his other close friends; his smile & laughter will remain. Rest in peace Scott.
All I can say is....Scott was a great friend, and he'll be sorely missed! Not only by Mary & I, but my whole family as well. R.I.P. my brother!

I am so sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you.
The world has lost a great father, grandfather, a true blue Michigan fan. A great golfer, and a damn great friend and uncle. Now you may be able to hit the one iron. May GOD be with you and I will miss you.
I'll never forget those wonderful times when we'd ride our bikes to Zimmerman and play baseball all day, all summer, every year. And Scotty was the best of us all. You will be missed, my friend.

We have lost a great friend....we are so glad that we just spent some time with Scott at his and Larry's 45th class reunion. It was a great night and Scott was in such good spirits and he was so funny talking about old Zimmerman and Southwestern memories with Larry and I. At the end of the night we all walked out together and I kissed and hugged him and told him I loved him... I am so glad that moment will be my last memory of him. Larry had a really great day with him the day before the reunion at the golf outing. He got to call him "Cow-Lick Hager" for one last time and talked about his Mom making them bologna sandwiches, they were the best because it was ketchup on one side and butter on the other side and they were so good (gourmet) to those 10-12 year old boys who spent all day long on Zimmerman's playground, playing baseball, football, basketball, or just hanging out. Our memories of Scott go on and on and we will cherish them. Our thoughts and prayers go to Scott's family. Rest in Peace our dear friend.
