    I offer my condolences to Scott’s family. Scott and I had a lot of fun together working at the City of Sacramento. There are three large Redwood trees alive and well on the east side of 16th Street between I and J Streets that owe their existence today to Scott’s creative re-working of the surface parking lot design there. Thank you Scott for saving these trees, among the other great things you’ve done in your years here! Rest in peace my friend.

    I had the pleasure of working with Scott during his tenure at the City of Sacramento. He was always one of the most friendly and helpful folks in the PW Dept. I always looked forward to an opportunity to see and talk with him. He will be greatly missed by all of us who had the privilege to know him.

    Hard to miss you Cuz, when you fill my every night with dreams of you. What you asked is foremost in my mind and I will continue to work towards it. Love you, Scott.
