Don Gilmore (brother of our classmate, Laurie Gilmore) reports on the recent death of Scott Carson, an indirect victim of COVID-19 (failure to seek routine medical care during the pandemic for fear of being infected by COVID-19): "He let a tooth abscess go a week or two too long and the infection consumed him. He and his family live in Nashville, and he had a career in technology. My dad helped him [Scott] get his first job out of college at International Harvester."

I remember Scott from basketball.  He played during his freshman and sophomore years.  He is pictured in the sophomore team photo below in the middle of the last row.  Scott always seemed like the strong silent type.  He wasn't flamboyant.  He just went about his business and didn't talk too much.

[From the photo below, in addition to Scott, Wayne Stephens, Jim Adamson, Tom Clegg, and Jeff Bonfield have also passed.  Interestingly, Don Loveall is still with us in downstate IL.]

Scott and Mack king ( both passed) were 2 giant as I remember from our class at Hawthorn School. Scott was quiet and nice but impossible to beat at king of the hill in the snow. RIP Scott.

Very sad to hear of Scott's passing. I recall Scott as an excellent teammate on the football team. A great competitor dedicated to winning. A kind, friendly guy off the field as well. Ironically Rick and we're just reminiscing of teammates and we discussed Scott, wondering his whereabouts. RIP Scott.

Saddened to hear of Scott's passing. He was always the strong, steady, quiet type. Good athlete too. My prayers and condolences to his family and close friends.
