Scott was a kindhearted soul who was always willing to help a friend in need.
He is survived by his girlfriend of 35 years, Marjorie Bowen of Westerly, R.I., his sister Bonnie and her husband Don Palmer of Leeds, MA., his nephew Matt Palmer and his wife Shannon and their three sons, Chris, James, and Maddox, and his nephew Ian Palmer and his wife Kate and their two sons, Charlie and Will.
