Scotty is also survived by nine grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren; and his loyal and faithful little poodle companion Nikki, who never left his side.

Scotty served his country during WWII. After enlisting and basic training he was assigned to Coastal Gunnery and sent to Fort Stewart, Ga. He was reclassified to Armor sometime later. His combat time was spent with Patton's 3rd Army as part of a Tank Destroyer Unit. He took part in Patton's "March to the Rhine" and was part of the relief of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge.

After the war, he owned and operated a service station for many years. He served his community with many years of loyal service on the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School Board. He was also a board member for the Elizabethtown Social Center, a facility that serves all ages in learning functions, recreation and sporting activities.
