His daddy was his hero.  Most knew Scotty as “Hollywood” when he was a truck driver.  He married the love of his life, Pam, and they had two beautiful daughters, Alli Jo and Savannah.  After Pam passed away, it was just him and Alli.  She was his everything.  He later married Carrie and found love again he thought he never would find.  He will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
