As I sit here reflecting about Scrappy and the people who spoke at Scrappy service, I felt compelled to write this. Scrappy taught me so much about softball and umpiring , and those things spilled over into my day to day life, his passion for the game and umpiring were truly inspiring to me , I shared that passion for playing and umpiring with Scrappy , he was truly a beautiful soul with a genuine smile and big heart. There were a lot of times when I was younger and just married and just had my 1st child and Scrappy and the guys would call me and say we are playing this weekend and I would say we play every weekend , I cant afford it, and Scrappy and really the whole team would help me out with tourney entry fees or even buy my food while we were in a tournament when I did not have a dime to my name,, they treated me like there family and took care of me . His character and his name will forever hold a special place in my heart , prayers to the family for fast healing

Prayers for all of the family! Scrappy was one of a kind and was a joy to play with! I have so many fond memories of playing at pleasant view with him or hearing him say “we got snake eyes”

Enjoy every game that I work (umpired) with Scrappy. He always had the kids interest at heart; fair play and respect for team members and coaches were a constant when he was at the home plate or in the field.

Scrappy, thank you for your friendship and for always keeping the game of softball what it was meant to be...a game! I always walked off the field having learned a little more about life and softball when I worked with my friend, Scrappy.

You will be in my heart and mind as I take the field this next season, much love and respect!
