Scott was a beautiful soul - kind, compassionate, funny and humble. It was truly a joy to just be around him. His unpretentious manner and random funny quips were some of his adoring qualities. He was dedicated to his work and loved his patients - especially enjoyed working through complex cases with physicians. He was an avid sports fan, loved music and shopping, and especially proud of his detailed lawn mowing skills. He adored his family and was so proud of his children and their accomplishments. He always kept a special place in his heart for his late family dog, Josie.
In addition to his loving parents, wife and children, Scott is survived by his sister Lisa (Scott) Inskeep and niece Hanna Jo Inskeep of Manchester, MD; Aunts and Uncles - Diane and Vince Miernicki, Janet and Tom Roeber, Joan and Dave Haldane, Linda and Tim Mosser and several cousins to whom he was very close.
