Scott was one of the nicest guys I have ever known. He graduated with my older brother, we went to the same Church, played on the same Church softball team and of course we all went to the same school. The beauty of a small town is we know everyone. I will always remember him with a smile on his face. A guy who would do anything for anyone. He will be missed! Prayers to the Evans family. Rest in peace, Scott.

I worked with Scott when I was an intern in 2014. Being completely unfamiliar with the people at the firm and the location, Scott always provided a friendly and inviting attitude. I really loved being able to work with him. In many ways he reminded me a lot of my own grandfather who passed away about a decade ago. Scott will be missed dearly.
