Always Family

For a while, until family dynamics changed, Scott was my brother-in-law and friend. I remember all the huge family gatherings and parties. I remember our boys playing and sharing clothes. I remember the night the family went missing in a snowstorm (before cell phones). Every memory I have is a happy one. I haven’t seen Scott in years but he will always be family. Rest In Peace my dear brother-in-law.

Premium Auditor

I worked with Scott in the Allentown office of PMA for a number of years. We shared a lot of family stories as well as hunting and fishing stories. We had a lot of laughs and good times. Scott was a great co-worker and I am sure he will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of knowing Scott. Rest In Peace.
