Just learned of Scot’s passing. Scot was a couple of years ahead of me in high school at Eudora. I can say he was always a pleasure to be around. He was always happy even in 2 a day football practice. His brother Eric and Adam also have the same positive vibes. So sorry for your loss.

From Jean Mease...

Scot was my son’s best friend. He was a frequent visitor in my home for years. Darwin and he went back a lot of years. He called me Mama Pike, was like my own son. Dar and I are sending our love and sympathy to your families.

I met Scot in my office in Texas where he ran title for his job. He worked in my office on and off for years. We became great friends. I introduced him to Karen. Scot always kept us laughing, and he had a heart of gold to match his sense of humor. He also loved his girls. He talked about them all the time. He will definitely be so missed. Prayers to the family. We all loved Scot so much.

Scot was a dear friend to me. We met at Lufkin Walmart and develop one of a kind friendship. We loved the same teams since I am from Kansas City too. I am so happy we got to hang out. We went to TCU last year to watch a Kansas game. We watch the last two Chiefs Super Bowls together. I enjoyed our long talks. Chats on the phone and text messages. He was a very good friend. He will be definitely missed. I am praying for the family.

From Corey Miller...

Anytime Scot would come into town I would I would genuinely be happy to see him. He always had a story to tell, a hard time to give and could make you laugh while doing it. He was loud, funny and honest. He will be missed.

I did not know Scot, but I know Taylor and she’s proof that he was a great man. This entire family is in my thoughts. ❤️

Scotty was a great guy. Even as a kid he was larger than life. His grin was infectious. Fly high cousin.
