    So sorry to hear about Clarence’s passing. He was a tribute to his profession. I remember when he was dating Becky and would go cruising by our family farm Friday evenings to pick Becky up for a date. He always beeped the horn on the way over and back. May your wonderful family memories bring you comfort at this difficult time. Revelation 21:4

    Dr. Scott was our doctor for many years and I am speechless with such a loss of a honest, fantastic, friendly,
    family man and caring doctor. He loved his family and his beautiful smiling Becky. The two of them worked together
    for years and were a kind fantastic duo in his medical practice. They were so proud of their sons and grandchildren and
    I always loved to hear of the exciting things they were doing in their adult lives. There will never be a precious
    family doctor like Dr. Scott. I know we are not supposed to question why but I have trouble asking God why.
    Ecc. 3 There is a time for everything. God has made everything beautiful in his time and he made this doctor special.
    May God mend Becky’s heart.

  15. Patti & Jim Martin Nov 13, 2020 at 5:08 pm

    Doc will be remembered forever by all who knew him. He really was a kind and caring doctor and a good friend. We are extremely saddened for Becky, the boys, and the grandchildren. Such a terrible loss to everyone. We send our love and deepest sympathy.

    Chuck & Leslie
    Our prayers go out to Becky and Doc’s family as they mourn the loss of their husband and father and to us, a very dear friend. Mutual friends recommended that we begin to see “Doc” for our medical needs and that was a wonderful day in our lives. Never looked back on our former physicians because we received the best of care and counsel from Doc Scott. We became such close friends over the last 25 or so years spending a good deal of our personal time with Becky and the doctor. The Scotts invited so many terrific personal friends into their lives that we were all one big extended family. Becky and Doc had a wonderful life together and my wife and I are so privileged to have shared so much time with their family as well.
    We will miss him like a brother. May God bless him and his family as he rises to meet his Lord. And May the Lord provide the strength for ALL his family and friends that they may find comfort he is without pain now and looking down upon us and smiling at his friends and family whom he nurtured throughout his life on earth.

  18. Keith and Marie Celli Seymour Nov 14, 2020 at 9:08 am

    Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this time.

  25. Roberta and Jim Dunklin Nov 15, 2020 at 2:26 pm

    Jim and I were patients of Dr. Scotts in Cape Coral. We were so very sorry to hear of his Illness and then his passing. Doc was such a wonderful caring person. These days there are not many Doctors like he was that truly care about their patients health and wellbeing. We’re glad that he is no longer in pain but are so sorry that Becky and the rest of his family are suffering this terrible loss. Please know that there are many people in this area that are going to miss him and especially that wonderful smile he always greeted you with. That’s how I’ll always remember him by his smile. Becky, please accept our sincere sympathy for you and your family. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
