I have not seen Scott for many years. His family grew up right by my family. We attended the same high school and attended church together in the same class. I am thinking of your family and hope you can feel peace and comfort with many prayers offered on your behalf.

Scott was an amazing person with so many talents and gifts. We will miss him in Special Needs Mutual. He worked so hard to make anything that required music or computers a success and just gave and gave and gave of his time and talents. My prayers are with you at this time.

I just read about Scott’s passing and I am filled with shock and sorrow. Scott and I worked together for many years every summer with Sandy City’s summer musicals and with the founding and member of the American West Symphony.
The years Scott and I worked together preparing for rehearsals and performances with our little orchestra and the music, making sure all the “cuts” were correct and other aspects of preparing the music for the productions were the highlights of the ’80’s and ’90’s for me. His knowledge and abilities to make changes. transpositions and abilities to play any woodwind necessary for the musicals always amazed me.
I remember the respect he showed you and the children always impressed me greatly. And on occasion when he would bring Erin to a rehearsal, how loving and kind he was to her when this litter girl needed some of Dad’s attention. So soft spoken and respectful to her.
Scott taught me so much. His positive and willing attitude amazed me. I don’t think I ever heard him utter a negative word about anything or anyone. I thank the Lord for our friendship and opportunity to know and rub shoulders with this remarkable man.
May your sorrow be brief but know he is always nearby and there will be times you will feel his presence . Ill health and disabilities prevent me from attending the viewing and funeral but my thoughts and prayers will be with your.

Dear Lori and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. It’s such a shock. Scott was one of the kindest, most talented people I have ever met. I know Jesus welcomed him home with open arms. I hope you will take comfort in your family and friends. I know exactly what you are going through and how it feels. I will always remember how you and Scott came to Jim’s funeral to support me. If I can do anything to help you “muddle through” please let me know. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Pathakis Family,
It was a shock to learn of Scott’s passing. He was a dear friend and a fabulously gifted musician with whom I played many musical events. He always had a smile and kind words for us and everyone around him. He will be sorely missed by our family.
Love, John and Jan Clayton

My sincere and deepest sympathy to you in your loss. Scott was an amazing person, neighbor, friend. My brothers, Gem and Steven, and I had many fun experiences with Scott. I’m so sorry that his time here on this earth was short. Short tho it was, the impression was grand. May your hearts be comforted in knowing that you are not the only ones who loved and respected him and will miss him.

Lori and Family,
What a surprise, while sitting with a few musical friends playing games this weekend, to have one of them mention Scott and his passing. In that moment my mind flooded with memories of you and Scott since the time we all met as newlyweds in the ward in Orem, when Scott and I served as Elders Quorum presidents together when Bishop Anderson split the quorum. Many nice, joyful, and simple memories of game nights, dinners, and fun together have come and gone.
As others, I, too, remember Scott for his simple and pure joy of life, his acceptance of everyone no matter their position or condition, his continual giving, incessant smile, and cheery face. He is truly a saint, and certainly still found blessing others, including you and your family, from beyond the veil.
May the Lord’s choicest blessings and His comfort and peace be with you now and in the years to come. My prayers and my thoughts are with you.
— Carl Miner
