    Very sad to hear about Scott. Shelly and I recently emailed Scott to get permission to ski up the valley from his place. He emailed me back and graciously said sure come on up. We had a great ski that day.
    I will always remember Scott as the adventurous young boy with his family at the cabin on Colorado Gulch.

  15. Sandrine says:

    I met John Scott while he was living in Tampa, FL. He cared for my dog Morpheus then my dog Neo. I went to visit him in Montana years later. It is by pure coincidence that tonight, I learn of his passing. John Scott was a brilliant and exceptional man. My heart goes to his entire family (I had the privilege to meet some of his beautiful family while my stay in Montana) and many friends. And to you, John Scott, I hope that wherever you are, you have found serenity and peace… You so deserve. These are very sad news.

  16. Mike Bruce Weber says:

    Scott was an inspiration to me. I met him in April 2014. I was at a low point. Scott was a tremendous help. I was at the animal rescue and spoke with him briefly on or about 2/22/18. We laughed.

  17. Scott Kaiser says:

    A Fellow Vet, A Friend I never met, yet a Patriot.
    Peace to the Family and Friends.
    His Service will always be known as keeping America Free.
    God Bless him and God Bless America.
