As many of you might or might not know, Scott was a hemophiliac. In the early days of the AIDS epidemic, before they were properly filtering blood donations for HIV, Scott received some HIV tainted blood during one of his transfusions and contracted AIDS. He passed away in 1988 at the age of 33. He had a real nice wife named Anne. At his request, we scattered his remains up on the Nisqually Glacier at Paradise on Mt. Rainier. It is a beautiful spot. He was my friend. -Greg Bellows

In grade school, all of us who were classmates of Scott's learned about hemophilia and how best to keep Scott from having to go to the hospital to get his blood to clot when he had an injury. Still, he participated in just about every game and sport. Played kickball while balancing on his crutches, foursquare and handball, as well as being on the Blue Ridge Swim Team in the summer. Scott struggled a lot in life, but was a truly heroic example to those who knew him on how to deal with life.

Scott and I grew up together in the same neighborhood and we were friends. We were involved in many of the same activities and had many classes together beginning with Crown Hill Elementry School through Marcus Whitman Jr High and Ingraham. He was always such a strong spirit. His passing is loss and I miss him.

To Scott's Family,

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Scott from our group of friends. It never mattered to me that he was any different. He was always so niceand smart.What a tragedy that he passed. I'm a bit late in writing this but I'll always remember him.

Sincerely,

Beth
