Memories Timeline

  2. So sorry to read of Scotties passing. He and I worked on the Railroad together in our early days when we traveled every week. He was a great mentor for me, as i was a youngster in those days.

  3. Thank you for your service young man, God Bless you and those you leave here behind, God’s Speed my friend

  4. Scottie and I were classmates at Reynolds High School in the mid 1960s. I remember Scottie well. He liked to study history, especially World War II. We had some good discussions about the sacrifices made by the Greatest Generation to defeat Germany and Japan to keep us free. I am saddened to learn of his passing. To his wife, family and friends my deepest sympathy. Gerry Huntley, Reynolds High School, Class of 1965. 828-318-4013.
