Thank you Sam Beeghley for letting TCVA know of Scott's passing.
"Scott was a caring person who would do anything for you. Him being from Alabama and me from Pennsylvania, we each thought the other talked “funny”. Scott was a dedicated aircraft mechanic who truly believed in the mission and always took pride in his work. Scott was more than a friend to me, he was a brother. Someone whom I could count on no matter what. He helped me welcome my daughter into the world and embraced my wife like a sister. Scott was well liked by everyone who came in contact with him and was respected by his fellow sailors. He is sorely missed by this old sailor." said by Sam Beeghley
TCVA extends its sympathy and prayer for peace to the Stephen Pope's family and friends during this time of the passing.
