My thoughts are with the family during this trying time. Scott held a special place in my heart and I cared about him. He was a devoted client and never failed to tell me how much he appreciated me. We enjoyed each others company during the time he came to my salon and sat in my chair, relaxed. Im very sad about his passing. Jan in Kansas City- Studio Jan Lea

I went to High School with Scott and certainly remember driving around with him and “Magic” in his white mustang. He was such a tennis star at SM West! I dated him later in life and am shocked and stunned by his passing. I am so sorry for your family. Phyllis, I remember picking you up and taking you to the casino with us. Very good memories. Scott and your entire family are very good, loving people; he spoke so often of his pride in his niece and nephew. I am out of town for the memorial service but please know my sorrow and thoughts are with you. Rest in Peace, Scott.

My sister who still lives In Kansas City saw Scott’s obituary in the newspaper. I want to send my condolences to Phyllis and Lance, and Scott’s extended family. I have many fond memories of Scott and his warm and loving loving family, who always made me feel welcome. No parent should outlive their child, and I’m so desperately sorry Phyllis. I hope and pray you have some comfort knowing that Scott is at peace. Your in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

So very sad to hear of Scott’s passing. Our deepest sympathies go out to Scott’s family and loved ones. We had the pleasure of working with Scott during our Selco days in the mid to late eighties in Overland Park Kansas, buying and selling more than 54 hotels during that time. Scott always had a great attitude about life and was a wonderful and valued team member. Loved our doubles matches at the tennis club in Overland Park. Scott was a great guy and will be truly missed.

Scott was a good friend since college days. His kind spirit and fun-loving friendship will be missed.
