It was an honor and privilege to have known Scottie since when he lived in California. He was a loyal friend, a squared away Coastie, a handsome heartbreaker, and had that million-dollar smile that would make you grin right back at him. He was a total joy to be around. Scottie could be so serious when he was talking about his Coast Guard duties, but the very next minute he would have me falling off my chair regaling me with another story about how single handily he was making sure everyone under his command was as squared away as he was. I would call him Coastie Scottie and he would remind me it was Chief Newberry. From the Coast Guard hymn: "Watch over the ones who guard our coast, protect them from the raging seas, and give them light and life and peace." Scott, may you rest in peace, you live on in my memories and in my heart.
