Scott was a 43 year-old husband, and father to 2 young boys. He was also known as son, brother, coach, friend, neighbor, and boss. Additionally, he spent a lot of his time dedicated to fundraising and advocating for those with Multiple Sclerosis, which he lived with for 17 healthy years.
He decided to stay home and work in early March, while his family went to Mexico for a whale camp adventure. He was trying to get some important projects done at work when he fell ill.
After a short stint quarantined at home, Scott was admitted to the hospital and quickly put on a ventilator. Within days he was transferred to another hospital for ECMO life support as his systems all began to shut down. He and his friends in the community pioneered the plasma donations at a local hospital blood bank. Despite getting plasma, he was unable to shake the grips of COVID-19. At 30 days in the hospital he was still testing COVID-19 positive, yet needed to get the intubation out. A brave team agreed to his surgery, after others had declined. After removal of the intubation and placement of a tracheotomy, he was awake enough to speak to his wife. Despite five weeks of not speaking, he was able to tell her for the last time “I LOVE YOU”. A few hours later he suffered multiple strokes due to blood clots related to COVID.
He succumbed to COVID-19 five days later, after 40 days in the hospital.
Scott is missed greatly by all, but mostly by his boys who never got to say goodbye to their Daddy.
