"I would wish without trying to sound boastful that every man, woman and child could know a love such as we have known from him," said his wife, Erika Engle Scott.
"I would like to thank everyone for their support -- monetary (and) spiritual," she said. "I've gotten so much help from so many people, many of whom I've never met and I'm very blessed by all of it -- and so I wish to say a heartfelt thanks," she said.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by daughter Cassidy; sons Zachary, Dylan and Taylor; father Clifford R. Scott; mother Billie J. Scott; brother David Scott; and sisters Lisa Criss and Rebecca Scott.
