    John, Joan, Randy and Scott’s wife and children,
    I send you my deepest sympathies. I will always treasure fond memories of Scott throughout high school and how he always called me “Boss” after our senior play. He sent me an Easter greeting this past spring and referred to me as “Boss” one last time. This will always bring a smile to my face and cheer to my heart. God will take care of you now and always. I continue to pray for all of you. Sending love and many hugs, Sandy Klemz (Ackerson)

  18. Ed Masseth says:

    Memories of life between the ages of 13 and 23 are filled with the reality that Scott was truly my best friend during this crucial time in ones life. We laughed, cried, and were there for each other as we forged our way forward from pre-adolescence to young adulthood. The level of friendship we had was marked by authenticity, honesty, and loyalty that made it easier to navigate the frustration, excitement, fear, and uncertainty that those years provide. It’s amazing to reflect and realize that such a relationship (save the one with my wife) has eluded me since. Most (particularly with us guys) friendships are fairly superficial and shallow involving sports, news and events of the day, etc… rarely going into the deep waters that sometimes sting, but are so worth the effort…my deepest regret is that we both did not find a way past the distance and “busyness” of life to remain close in the past 20 years. I feel a profound sense of double-loss as I realize both the lost years of friendship and the realization that we will not have the opportunity to right the wrong we discussed just two weeks ago….If somehow you are able to read this, Scott, please know that you were (at least for a decade of my life) something we all need more than anything else in life… A TRUE FRIEND… and I’ll say for that I love you like a brother and always will…may the people in your life recently and your family be blessed by what you meant to me……

  19. Ed Masseth says:

    sorry all for the double entry… I’m not overly tech savvy and am also exhausted and tried to re-type my thoughts as I didn’t think the first comment went through. Just know I truly loved Scott…

  20. Mitch Grimm says:

    I’m so sorry to hear about Scott’s passing. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help your family through this difficult time.

  21. Bill Ibach says:

    I am so very sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. I worked with Scott at Hornbacher’s many years ago and he was a good guy; a genuinely nice person. I remember he had a passion for his work and for coaching basketball. He was very social and well-liked by his co-workers. I know that he was a good son, brother, husband, and father and that the world is a lesser place without him in it. I also know that anyone who met him was better for it. My deepest sympathies for all of his family and friends who I know will miss him deeply.

    My sincere condolences to the family of Scott Long. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in knowing that Scott is in the safest place possible – Jehovah God’s memory. (Malachi 3:16) The Biblical accounts of the resurrection are so sure that soon you too will have an opportunity to hear God’s Son, Jesus, say, as he did to Lazarus: ‘Scott, come on out!’ to a resurrection of everlasting life in paradise on earth. (John 11:43) With deepest sympathy,

  31. B Rilett says:

    I’m going to remember Scott at Connor’s basketball games, standing a little off from Mary and the rest of us, focusing intensely on the game and beaming with pride at his immensely talented son. I remember how proud he was too at Connor’s high school graduation party, especially when he shared the slide show he’d spent hours creating. Scott was proud not only of Connor but also of his beautiful and talented girls, Alaetra and Malayah. He often commented on how amazingly wonderful Mary was too. The messages Scott posted to his Facebook page show that he lived and loved with an open, generous heart.

    This is a terrible loss for all of you, but I hope the happy memories of all the good times and shared love will bring you peace and help carry you through the darkness. We love and admire your family so much.

    Bev, Larry, Mike, Kate, & Sam

    Dear John, Joan, Mary and family,
    I am sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. I have many fond high school memories of Scott from various activities, especially from his student managing of girls’ basketball and keeping the stats, and from Knowledge Bowl, where he sometimes gave off-the-wall funny answers to questions that were supposed to be serious. My best wishes and thoughts are with you.
