I will say, theres was know way to know the real scott, cause there were so many stories. he did talk about drugs sometimes but that was going back years ago, when I wouldnt even think he would even try them. We were on the same hockey team for years, played stickball, and hung out alot. he told me alot of the things he would do. alot of funny stories. the way I met scott was in 9th grade
general math class, the kids would call him q-bert cause of his eye, and he would wear his ranger jersey to class, so we started talking about hockey and became friends. I was told another story about how he died. which made me mad at him. its not the drugs, the story I was told is that he hung himself, when you smake crack, you only get go out of your mind when you need more, you dont climb up a pipe drain, unless, you hid your crack there. I use to do coke, was addicted for 8 years, but didnt smoke it. there are weird things you will do under the influence of coke and crack, but its not one of those drugs that makes you jump off buildings unless you are mixing it with some other kinda drug. I know scott was slipped acid one time on a camping trip one time, or thats what he told me, his girlfriend slipped acid in his beer or something. If I was a more happy person, I may have been a better friend to scott, I may have been around him more, but since Im not a happy happy person, I didnt do alot of the normal things guys do, like go chase after girls and stuff, thats the only reason we didnt get too, too close, but we played hockey together for about 10 years

Bob - for some reason I get problems when I try to e-mail from my account. I can be reached at I remember our crabbing trip and Scott getting confused about how to steer the boat we rented. That boat we almost ran into was very expensive and the guy driving it was pretty pissed. I also remember when we were under the bridge the van that passed over the top of us on the highway. The girl shouted hey everybody and pulled her shirt open. I think Scott said hey what's your phone number!

To Kiss. Thank you. I thought that this was so. I have been looking in other sources. What I did not know was that Scott had a brother. I have been trying, without luck, to reach him at the email address he include in his message to Bob above. It would be nice to let him know that there is other family in Canada. I only know him as Brother of Scott from these postings. If there is any way that you or anyone could help me further in would be much appreciated.

to lost kin - Caroline passed away on feb 8, 2007 from complications of lung surgery and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Scott and I were at her bedside and I believe that she went as peacefully as possible. She chain smoked for way too many years. If you are one of the cousins that she mentioned living up near Ontario or was it Little Falls? I would be interested in hearing from you and exactly how you were related to Carol (for example on her Mother's side or Father's side). We would be related by marriage not blood, I will explain when I find out how to contact you. Try e-mailing me at and I might get an e-mail that way. Verizon can be a pain sometimes with what it blocks. I have some pictures that you may be interested in as well.

Let's just say I was a big part of Scott's life and he was mine... Sometimes people get the wrong impression of how much someone really meant to them because of what others say but in reality Scott has never left my mind. Mark you already know who I am..

I was driving through elizabeth about a month ago, looking at some of the hotels, where he could climb up something.

I just happened to go on here (I saw it back when it first started) I can't believe that things are still being written. I don't know if that is a good or bad thing. It's scary to think that someone who was such a HUGE part of my life at 1 time (for better or for worse) was really someone I knew little about. A double life really comes to my mind. Bob, please give me a timeframe as to when this "acid drop" happened!??!?! I really dont want to think it was while I was around, although that would explain some stuff. I KNOW a lot of time has passed since I was around, but reading some of this stuff is weird. I'm glad you included your email Bob. I would LOVE to talk to you. At least it seems Mark was able to find a relative??? I have a feeling this will be around for awhile...
