A very good friend and fellow modeller and founder of the Meet & Greet Model club of Grand Rapids MI.

passed away Sat. the 9th.

He always offered up his home for us for meetings a build and bull sessions along with several 24hr builds. He was always willing to help another guy out.

Good Bye my friend may you now be able to walk among the heavens and hopefully put in a good word for the rest of us.

Scott was a great guy and my friend. We had lots of good times together and I'll miss him. He was in a lot of discomfort the last year or so but still could joke and laugh. He was one of the good guys. Be at peace Scott.

Scott was the founding starter for the "Meet & Greet" club. Our first meeting was with "Spooter" aka Paul Spolhof,and my self. We set up the ground rules. "No judging allowed of others builds",and "you must bring one,or more to display to each meeting if possible,even if it was under construction". Then the guys on their own started swapping parts,or donating parts they didn't need. We started only using a small table at the resturant...now it has gotten so big...the display table ended up being on the pool table in the resturant ! Scott was the one who would get the dates the guys chose,and he was the one who called the resturant,and set up the date with them. Scott,and his ife Sandy let us use their basement a lot. He would also help guys in their builds. He was into building "Pro-Street" builds. He challenged me to get out of my 50s "custom" builds,and do a "Pro-Street" build. I ended up doing a 60 Ford. It was hard for me not to put on fender skirts,and wide whites ! LOL! This shows what a big part of our club hewas.He will be missed.
