  1. Sincere sympathy to our friends/neighbors…the Brown family. Scott was such a gentle person taken away too quickly. Thoughts and prayers to everyone.

  2. Scott Brown was the definition of a strong and steady person in my mind. Always part of my childhood memories. Especially involving potato guns and turkey calls. Rest in peace Scott!

  3. There is an empty spot now at church in the pew where Scott always sat and in our hearts as well. He will be dearly missed by all of those who knew him. We pray for the comfort of your family.

  4. Scott was such an incredible man! I’m so sorry for your loss and hope you are comforted by the hands of family and friends. From the out pour of love and over flowing food you can see how much he was loved! I pray for your family that you find peace knowing he is now in heaven (probably helping to build a more beautiful kingdom!) My thoughts and prayers are with you all!!!

  5. We’ll always remember Kevin’s skilled work at our home and we extend our “deepest sympathy” to the entire Brown family.

  6. Lisa and I enjoyed our time with you during the P.J. Construction baseball era. Good times and lots of laughs. Both garage walls are still standing firm and neither of us can believe how you just pushed through the discomfort and pain to get it done right the first time. We will both miss you my friend. God bless you and your family.
