Most people will remember Scotty from the Bruce Park Grill and Greenwich Taxi where he worked for twenty plus years. In 2017 he retired and devoted his time and to his grandchildren and considered this time the best years of his life.
Scott enjoyed life to the fullest, and taught those around him to appreciated the simple things. His most cherished memories where made right at home spending time with family, at island beach going for a float and telling a good joke. Scott was the epitome of a family man, raising four daughters and creating a loving welcoming home for everyone they cared about. His love was pure and unquestionable, he will be deeply missed by so many. We will always remember his special smile, caring heart and warm embrace.
Scott believed life should be celebrated and for that reason, we will gather to share some of our favorite memories, our stories, to laugh, to cry and remember a wonderful person who is greatly missed. Please join us on January 4, 2020 at the Mianus River Boat & Yacht Club from 12 to 4 p.m.
