My heart felt sympathy goes out to the entire Gauthier family. I met Scott in auto mechanics at BHS. Instantly we became great friends with a common interest in muscle cars. We remained friends and kept in touch throughout the years. Scotty was full of life, charisma, and was so fun to be around. He also put others before himself, always willing to help anyone in need. RIP my friend, I'm saddened by your passing, but will always cherish the great times and memories!

My sincerest condolences to Scott's Family. Although I haven't seen Scott since we were teenagers, I thought of him fondly throughout the years. My memories of him were always happy as he was such a large personality who was never boring, to the contrary, he loved to make everyone laugh and was adventurous. I will never forget his friendship.

I am at such a loss. Your smile, wittiness , good nature and always wanting to help a friend is what we all will miss. We have had some wonderful times over the years.. One of my favorites is when you pretended to be blind so you could get Moses into the Fair. Oh my, that was a precious one, still laughing.. I will miss you my friend.

I wished for just one day. They said that you didn't want me to see you that way, but I just wanted, to see your smile just one more time, and your sweet voice, that was always kind to me. In another life my friend, I shall see you and smile.
