Scott grew up in Georgia, Tennessee and ultimately called Indiana his home. Scotty enjoyed spending time and sharing laughs with his friends, often over a cold beer, a game of bowling, at a music festival or floating down a river. Scott was an avid lover of the New York Yankees. He was a true connoisseur of music and had a fervent love of books and movies. Scott was a talented musician and an accomplished writer; he was wise, intelligent and always quick with a joke. Scott was a lover of many things, but the love for his daughter surpassed all. Scotty Brown was a kind and gentle soul, a true friend to many. Scott was “one of the good ones.” The Dude abides.

“And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.”
