Scott loved talking to family and friends on the phone day and night. While living in Texas Scott met and married Deborah Ballard; the couple was married for over 20 years. He liked to tell folks in Texas "how they do it in Minnesota." Scott enjoyed telling stories and making people laugh with his great sense of humor. He was sensible, sensitive, and a great caregiver.
