Scott will truly be missed by his Newport News family. The man who spoke little but knew more than you could imagine. He sat quiet until he had something to say or share, and did he have something to share. I would tell him over and over you will forever be The Craumer of the Shipyard. May you rest in Peace our friend, Rest in Peace.
