Uncle Scott: This tribute will be riddled with songs because that is the way I remember you best!!! I was shocked to hear that you were in poor health I found out just last week and was not aware, so for that I am sorry. On to the fond memories we will start with “Goodnight Saigon” By Billy Joel in the summer of 1998 just prior to me joining the Navy Kyle will attest to the fact that we probably heard that song 30 times in the same night and it was always “listen to the words” which sounded funny at the time but now I know he wanted us to share the experience with him. Then it was Lynyrd Skynyrd with “That Smell” which was played not one time less than the previous. Another great track that now as I look back taught me to “slow down” This song was played even on my wedding day on the “trolley” as we rode from stop to stop for pictures. Most of those on the trolley had no idea the meaning of the song or why we listened to it, but I did and when we shared that song it was as if you were passing advice on to me. The next to last song I will add is “Ride The Wind” by Poison this was on an old Harley Davidson cd I had and I always made me think of you no matter where I was in the world. The last is “Don’t Blink” by Kenny Chesney which I don’t know if you liked this or not but I think there is a lot to be learned from this song and every time I hear it the part that speaks to me most is “when the hour glass runs out of sand you can’t flip it over and start again”. This has taught me to live each day to the fullest and spend time with family to maximum extent possible and not just be together but to enjoy the quality time because we never know when our the lord will call upon us. I will miss the car shows especially Iola (1970 only), the Harley rides we went on together and, just spending time together. Thank you for the jokes and the fond memories, guidance, and love! We will miss you always and love you!!!!

We grew up across the street from Scott and after my father passed he always watched out for my mom. Great guy who will be missed terribly by my family. Mary and Lenny
Scott wasn’t just my step dad, he was someone who took me in as his own and first daughter. We had many rough but many fun times. I always enjoyed riding on the bike, even if it were to the store. The trips we took, I will never forget. He was a great man and will never be forgotten. – maddy a.k.a. dangerous cargo
I’ve known Scott since 2002 when Ade to me over to Milwaukee from the UK, to meet his new American friend and what a friend to me he turned out to be. From the first day he treated me like one of the family and introduced me to America. Scott loved to organize and took me on some great road trips on the Harley’s and even gave a chance to ride in the 100th Harley anniversary parade so I could. A great guy you will be sadly missed and never ever forgotten.
If I may, in addition in Steven’s list, I would like a add a few other songs that will always be uniquely Scott’s – “455” – by Kathy Mattea (I am quite sure Kyle will remember that one), “My Old School,” and “Don’t Take Me Alive,” both by Steely Dan and “South City Midnight Lady,” by The Doobie Brothers.” Ade had taken a video prior to the Milwaukee Home Run Rally parade. In the background you can hear the radio on Scott’s purple Ultra playingPeter Frampton’s “Do You Feel Like I Do.” It was the perfect song for the perfect time. So many joyous memories so many joyous friends and parties and fun. These and so many more memories will always keep Scott alive.
I first met Scott when we worked together at Murphy Diesel close to forty years ago. We both went on to better jobs but always remained friends .We didn’t see each other often but when we did it was like no time had passed between visits .With a guy like Scott when he was your friend he was your friend for life . Car shows,doing some work on his house, swap meets sitting around his house or mine having a beer or coffee are some of the things that I will miss . sincerely Rich Kleczkowski

We first met Scott when he visited England in 2005 with Laurie, Maddie & Scott Reimer. It was the start of a wonderful friendship as Jon & Scott shared the same Monty Python sense of humour. We were lucky enough to be invited to Wisconsin on a number of occasions and Scott always opened his home and made us very welcome. He introduced us to his sons, Scott and Chris and his daughter-in-law Margaret. He delighted in showing us Wisconsin from the north to the south, but especially his favourite view at Granddad’s Bluff. We have many fond memories of our time with Scott, getting pulled by the police for ignoring a road block when riding to the 105th Parade, riding to Madeline Island, Bloody Mary breakfasts, the Spam Museum and Chicken Flavoured Noodle soup at George Webb’s.
Scott will ride with us forever in our memories and our thoughts are with the family and friends at this time. We are so sorry we can’t be with you in person to remember Scott’s life.

Ive Known Scott since 2002 when Ade took me & two other friends from the U. K. to meet his new found American friend.I can say this with all honesty, that I have never met a fellow biker, that showed me such kindness.All the great road trips over the years, organizing for me to ride in the Harley chapter flags parade in 2003, fully dressed I might add as a Roman Legion soldier, short skirt & bare legs, Scott never stopped laughing.We also met his two sons, Scott Jr & Chris, he was so proud of them, also a quick flying visit for his wedding to Laurie, such happy memories, such great people, my thoughts & prayers will be with you forever Scott my Friend.

I have known Scott for almost 30 years thru school, church, kids and just being friends. We spent a lot of time together and had some great times, kids sports, biking, boating and just having fun. My condolences to his sons, wife, brother and family. Scott was a great guy who we will all miss. I will remember him forever and miss his presence.
