May you find joy and happiness, peace and comfort in the memories of your lives shared with him.

My deepest sympathies to all of Scott's family. He fought a tough fight. All of your wonderful memories of his life with you will eventually get you through. One day you will find yourself thinking of him through smiles rather than tears.

Margaret and family, please know that all of you are in our prayers and thoughts and hope that you will let us know if we can help or be of any assistance at this time. The more I read about Scott, the more I can see that he lived his life on the run but with sincere focus on family and friends. It would be nice if we all could take some pages from his very full book.

Grant & Joanne

Margaret, Jennifer, and Krista -- I have enjoyed your friendship for more than 20 years and am forever thankful that you shared Scott with us. He lived life to the fullest but never forgot his family. When I was with him he always talked about his family. I knew how Margaret was doing, where Krista was headed to next, and the latest with Jen and her family. You all enabled him to reach new heights. When we worked with YFU we had a saying about the Brazilian boys - if you had two of them you had a party. Well, when we had one Scott we had a party. It's what all of us loved about him. There is no party today. But all of us have amazing memories and my prayer for you is that your memories are greater than your grief. May God Bless each of you.

Dear Laurie, Dave and Family,

The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down but gentle warmth still lingers on the land.
The music stops but echoes on in sweet refrain,
For every joy that passes something beautiful remains.

May you find some comfort in your memories of Scott.

With Heartfelt Sympathy,

As a sports journalist for many years, I met many remarkable and accomplished people. Scott was a champion, so also much more than an athlete and military officer. He was a Pied Piper for hundreds of cyclists, especially mountain bikers. He was playful and always up for a ride or run. When we "grownups" got too serious or whiny, Scott would always flash that mischievous little boy smile and send the message that life is too short for frowns. If we are sad today, its because we will have to become our own "scuds," responsible for creating fun and laughter wherever we go, just like Scott. When the forecast calls for rain and we get sunshine instead, I'll know Scud is up there, making sure we are having as much fun as he is.

Margaret, Jen and Krista-- our hearts ache for you at this time. Know that we have very happy memories of Scott, which will never fade. We continue to be here in Montclair, where it all started, and will give you whatever help you need.
More recent postings and friends have been involved with the mountain biking community, but our memories are older. Soccer was Scott's passion then, when we first knew him, when he was our daughter's coach. Never was there a more positive, fun, enthusiastic coach. That carried over to today, to our daughter, who is a successful high school soccer coach. His legacy is strong there.
We have so many memories--of how he actually swam up to our door for a visit, and just to catch up. Thank you Scott. Our families spent a lot of soccer time together, but also with exchange students. We shared wonderful experiences together, among them, skiing trips. Scott actually taught a girl from Tasmania, Michelle, who had never seen snow to ski on one of our trips. He was the biggest kid of all! By the end of the day she was laughing and loving it. That was Scott's way. The world is diminished by his departure, but oh, what wonderful memories to share and remember. Was there ever a photo of him without his HUGE smile? What a man, what a life!

My deepest sympathy to the Scudmore family. Even though I knew Scott for a short time, every time he was around there was such a pleasant auro around him. He was always pleasant and happy. That just means he had wonderful people in his life and this is a tragic loss. He passed on his terms and lived life to the fullest and may he rest in peace.

I just learned of Scott's death this morning and needless to say I was shocked. Scott and I went to high school together and were good friends.

Please accept my condolences and God bless your family .
