Scott and his brother Sam were very close.  When they were kids they would fish and hunt together.  Scott would do anything for Sam. “Scott was the best brother I could have ever asked for in life and I will miss him so much. He would give you the shirt off his back and do anything for anyone.  He will truly be missed by everyone who had the opportunity to know him.”

Scott had special friends in the Astoria area, including Roderick Gramson and Sally Cullen.  Scott enjoyed clam digging with Rod. He spent the last six years of his life with them and considered them as family.

Scott was a generous person and would go out of his way to help friends and family alike.  Your presence will be missed, but like the beacon from a lighthouse through the fog, your memory shines brightly and endures.

Scott departed this life on April 1, 2018 at the age of 57.  He was preceded in death by his father Richard and brother Steve.  He is survived by his brother Sam and as a beloved uncle will be missed by his 6 nieces & nephews; Tarrin, Darren, Ryan, Chris, Brittany and Stacy Nixon.
