Wow. Played with Bam so many years ago in YMCA football. Later on we stayed in touch while in HS even though he was a bulldog and I was a Lancer. Bam was such a great guy. Sorry I fell out of touch. My heartfelt wishes

I have known and cherished memories of Scott "Bam" from his first baseball game as a Little League player, to the wonderful young teenager we enjoyed visiting with in our home, to the outstanding young man, husband and father he was as he visited our son John, to the final precious memory I have of Scott, a wonderfully kind and thoughtful letter he sent me three years ago. I will forever treasure his letter and his memory in my heart. His life was an example to
follow. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Michelle, Brittany & Major, I'm so sorry to hear about your lose. I can remember when Vickie was Babysitting Karri & Justin & I would tell Karri that if she had Math Homework, that I could not help her & to go see Vickie to see if Bam was there to help her. He was a kind gentle person & I was glad I knew him. He was the type of person that he would give his shirt off of his back to help someone!!! He will be deeply missed all of us & the Heath Community!! He touched each one of us in a very special way!!!! God Bless each & everyone of you!!! Rest in Peace "Bam"

My stepmom, Susie, babysat Bam when we were little kids. Then we grew up and went to school together at HHS. Such a sudden loss for the students, the school, the community and for his wife and kids. My prayer is for everyone's memories to hold the during this sad time. Bam, you are with the greatest teacher ever now - what a celebration of your life!

He was a great inspiration to my son Denver in sports. He was loved my all the kids . So sorry to hear of his passing.

I couldn't believe when I heard. He made me like math. He always stuck around after class to help me, he listened to me complain about my mother, he called me out when I was being a brat, attended both mine and my sisters grad parties, and let me come back long after I graduated to catch him up on my life. I was so looking forward to reading his book that he so fondly talked about. The only thing he loved more than teaching was his beautiful wife and family and God. His smile was infectious and even now, I can hear him laughing. I am so grateful for the things he taught me not only in education but in life. He was one of the greats. I am praying for you and your family Mrs Henry. I'm sorry I can't be there to celebrate his life. God bless.

Lewis Sr. and Brittany and all your family:
I cannot say how very very sorry I am for your loss.
Lewis, no one should lose their son before their own death - my heart goes out to you. I don't even want to imagine what you must be feeling.
Brittany, I know how close you were to your dad and God has taken him way TOO SOON - you're in my prayers as is your grandparents and your brother Major and your mother.
