I remember Scott from many events at Colby, although I do not think we ever exchanged more than a few words. He seemed very focused, helpful, and knowledgeable. It was always reassuring to see him at an event requiring technology. I am very sorry for the loss and will miss him.

The night sky is one star brighter having been touched by Scott's warm and friendly spirit. We are truly saddened by his passing and offer our condolences to his family. I thank Scott for the many shows he provided excellent sound for my Bubble Gum Band and me. Man, we loved his smile and his sense of humor.

Being an audio engineer in Maine, Scotty was always around, no matter where I worked. I met him when I was a student worker, going to college in Orono. His breathy Maine accent immediately grabbed my attention. I would go on to work with him at the Grand Auditorium in Ellsworth and would even carpool with him to those gigs after I moved to Portland. We worked along side each other in every stage of my career doing shows at colleges, festivals (No Atlantic Blues Festival will not be the same without him), and just about every venue in Maine. When I became the production manager at Port City Music Hall, Scotty was my go-to guy whenever we needed backline for the acts. In an industry where we r...ely on using email to keep details in order, Scotty remained the ONE guy I always followed up with a phone call. I just enjoyed talking to him so much and trading "war stories" from whatever recent gigs we'd each done. He was a true friend and I'm so glad to have gotten to spend the first 17 years of my professional life collaborating with Scotty. RIP in buddy. I'll never forget you.Read more

I worked with Scott for many years on many events. There was never a better partner to have on your team. The world is a better place because he was here.

Scott was my music and studio partner for several years when I lived in Winthrop, just down the road. Everybody I know that knew him, loved him. He was always generous, kind and had a beautiful sense of humor including laughing at himself and life. Scott was also a great drummer and is probably jamming with his old buddies in heaven now. Our blues sessions with Lee Bell and pat Moscone were some of the best memories of Perrow Audio in Readfield. He even got me to do sound once for the high school big band competitions in Newport. His life was filled with music and family. Hi to Deanna, Kelly and Joe. God bless you and God bless Scotty.

I worked with Scott's dad, Ken, at the E&R - GNP Co. Ken had a great sense of humor and that is what I remember about Scott. He was a chip off the old block as they say. I remember Cathy working there too as a summer student. Smart and gifted family. My sincere condolences to the family.
