I worked with Scott in Alameda, CA I'm very sad to hear of his passing. My thoughts are with his family.

Dear Karen and Tateum, we were shocked by the news of Scott's death. It was far too soon, but we firmly believe God needed him more than we did. He really was like an angel. We met him ten years ago in NYC and he became like family to us almost immediately. Our most recent memory is when he visited us in October 2006 to be at our daughter's baptism. Scott insisted on paying for her cake. He was generous to a fault and taught us all how to find the best in everyone. We will miss him so much. God bless you all. We pray you find comfort in fond memories you certainly have of this remarkable young man. Love, Stacy and Donna Graffam and family (Zachary and Nicolotte)

I did not know Scott, but my son Jason roomed with him at CPO Academy. I am so deeply sorry for your loss, and for the the loss of a fine Guardian who served his country so well. I know that words cannot truly ease your pain, but I truly hope that you are supported by the compassion of the many people who love you and who cared for Scott...as well as those of us like me who don't know you but send our deepest sympathies.

We are so sorry to hear of Scott's passing. We have been neighbors in the same building in Alexandria and have enjoyed knowing Scott for his warmth, authenticity and generosity of spirit. He will be missed. Our condolences to his family and friends.

I was truly shocked when I learned of his passing, not even 30 years old! I remember Scott from A school, working the Pacific Marine Expo in Seattle and his Chiefs Initiation at Cape Cod, where I met his mom, a truly proud day. Good guy, hard worker, loyal, honest and friendly, all the qualities of a true shipmate.

It only seems like yesterday when I first met Scott when we were stationed on the CGC MELLON together. He was always thinking of others more than of himself and gave his time for listening, caring, and just being there for others. He was a true SHIPMATE to everyone. I'm grateful to have known him and he will always have a piece in my heart for him. I wish I could have known him longer but know that he's standing the watch and keeping an eye on those who have had the privilege of knowing him. My prayers and thoughts go out to his family and friends. May you know that he lived his life to the fullest and that he has made a profound impact on everyone that has known him during his Coast Guard Career; volunteer services and to those who were close to him.

Scott and I met when he was stationed with us in Eatons Neck NY. Seaman Newberry then used to house sit for us and just come and hang out with us. After our first child was born on our first valentines day he "made" us take his tickets to footloose and go into the city to see the play. One of the many things Scott liked to do in New York City. We had so much fun and I will forever be grateful for the fun memories that we had with him.

Seeing him as a Chief was a wonderful contribution to the Coast Guard and we have lost a wonderful man with a great big huge heart.

To his family I am sorry for your loss and hope you know that Scott is now in heaven watching over all of us. He is on a perpetual watch now.

Thank you for letting us all get to know your son and allowing us to learn so much from him...

I was very sad to learn of Scott's passing. I've worked with him in Alameda, he was always helping others and making sure that things were done the right way. He truly loved the Coast Guard, I will remember you forever. My prayers are with the family.

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.

Scott was a ray of sunshine to all who knew him. He was one of my husband's best friends and when I met him 3 years ago, we instantly bonded. He was in our wedding and we had plans to go skiing with him in 2 weeks. I know he will live on in our hearts forever. I miss him terribly, and I send my deepest condolences to his family.
