Scott was a wonderful man and a great friend, it is a terrible loss for anyone that has ever known him. Eva you and the kids are in our thoughts and prayers.

Scott was more a family member than a friend for the past 15+ years. It was always fun and pleasant to visit with him and your family. We will remember Scott as a community leader, confidant, gentleman and lifetime friend. We shared in the joys of our children growing and the many celebrations in our lives and the lives of our families. He was always opening his heart and home to his friends. Our families and our lives have been close and connected and will always remain that way. We were looking forward to many more years of friendship and sharing experiences as our children grow. Staci and I and our children will miss Scott in every way that we can imagine. We very much share in this loss with your wonderful family who we have grown so close to. May G-d grant Scott peace and may you and the Penner family be blessed with hope and the strength to face the future in Scott's absence. Know that we are with you all in spirit and love.

I've known Scott for many years now, our sons grew up together in scouting. He has been one of the leaders that you could always count on to be there, lending support to both the scouts and parents new to the troop. Scott was a friend to all that knew him and was proud to be a wood badge honoree. Rest in peace, you will be missed.

I only knew Scott for a relatively short time with Scout Troop 380. He was always a very helpful and generous man, and made me feel welcome as a new parent in the troop. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.
