    I am saddened to hear of Scottie's passing. I had the pleasure of working with him at the Beaumont Enterprise for twenty-four years.
    Scottie was a member of an elite group at the newspaper. He was a pressman. The pressroom had the most tenured employees in the building. When I left the newspaper all pressmen had more than twenty years on the job and several had more than, .thirty. They were a tightknit, talented and dedicated group. Each member of the team was a true professional.
    I enjoyed knowing Scottie and Ann. They were a delight to be around.
    My sympathy to the family..

    So sad to hear about Scotty's passing. I haven't seen Scotty since he lived near me in South Park Beaumont. Looking at your photo Scotty, you look identical to your dad. I remember many good times - especially at the beach cabin. Rest In Peace Scotty.

    My dad, Jewell Rose worked with Scottie at the Enterprise many years ago.. I remember him well even though it has been many years since I last saw him. My condolences for the family as I know they will miss him but try to remember his smiling face and the good times you had together.
