Scott began working for GTE Sylvania shortly after graduating from Waterloo High School and stayed with the company many years until it was purchased and moved out of the area by Phillips International. Then Scott went on to work at Goulds Pumps for more than 20 years, finishing as an Application Engineer in the Water Systems Division. He loved traveling, especially on his motorcycle, camping, being our Mr. Fix-it, never passing up ice cream and supporting his sons in all their activities and endeavors.
