I wish that I had kept in touch with Scott a little better, but will try to add what I do know to his profile.  After high school, Scott went to St. Olaf College in Northfield MN.  He loved it there.  His major was piano and I believe that he also had a minor in religion.  I do know that while he was at St. Olaf he became very aware of world social and political issues and felt moved to be a positive force for good in the world.  I think that Scott ended up living on the East Coast after finding someone with whom he wanted to share his life, and was very happy.  He became ill and passed away in early 1993.  I will try to contact his sister-in-law and get more information about Scott's life from the time he graduated from St. Olaf in 1984 until his passing. 

Scott was a talented and caring guy and he always made me laugh!

I very much enjoyed listening to Scott whenever I could hear him play the piano.  After playing some songs at our house I thought her should autograph the piano.  :)  Just in case...

His ambition in studying piano helped me to assist my own children with their studies and where they wanted to go with them.  I often talked about how Scott practicing before he even left for school in the morning and how it paid off with his talents. 

I received a letter from Scott near the end of his life.  He had been in touch with Rita Wiersma and I was happy to have connected with him one more time.  He will be forever in my heart.  He was a musical blessing to us all.

Growing up with Scott was a real blessing/adventure. You never knew what was next and yet there was always something to gain from the experience. I visited him once at St. Olaf and then found him in 1986 to play for my wedding as he always promised he would. After that we pretty much lost touch. I tried to see him once before he passed, but was not allowed to. We went through many things together and I'll never forget him. Dawn Ruesink Rohl

I remember Scott as a kind heart that would do anything for you. I loved his musical ability and was very jealous of his piano playing. When I worked at SVES, I worked with one of his friends and had the opportunity to write back and worth before he past away. It gave me a chance to say somethings I wanted to say to him. He seemed to truly love the East Coast and his life there. A man of many talents that I think of today and smile...he is missed.

5/31/12 - Scott passed away 19 years ago today. Seems like just yesterday. He always said he wouldn't live past 30 because he didn't feel it would be worth it. Sad to have person and talent gone, but he lived like he wanted and that was the important part.

I think of Scott often. I can still see him running down the halls of SVHS saying "Tammy Sue" or "Yapper". He truly was a muscial genius who was loved by so many. Scott made everyone laugh and any time spent with him was enjoyable. As we used to say "An enjoyable time was had by all" We were also blessed to have him share his wonderful talents with us at our wedding ceremony 29 years ago. A great friend who left us way too early....
