We would like to pay tribute to one of our owners that passed away on November 29, 2016, Scott McConnell!!

After an eight month battle he succumbed to cancer.  He is Chuck's cousin and a valued member of the owners team.  Scott was one of those people that had a calm and sturdy demeanor, but also knew how to let loose.  He was kind, helpful, positive, funny, intelligent, witty, humble and an all around great person.  He leaves behind a new wife, four amazing kids, a father, a brother and an amazing amount of people that loved and cared for him.  He will be missed.

RIP George Scott McConnell 1971-2016
