Scott loved teaching kids and directing show choirs. In his lifetime, Scott taught thousands of students and shared his love of music.
Scott enjoyed fishing and was an avid fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Chicago Bears. Scott liked anything Disney and decorating his yard for the holidays. He had a corny sense of humor and had lots of dad jokes, but most of all he loved spending time with his family and was always there for everyone. Scott will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
