Born in Philadelphia, PA on May 28, 1944, Scott, as he was known to family and friends, was raised in Bucks County where his family has been since 1710.

Scott served in the U.S. Army 43rd Engineer Battalion from 1966-1968 receiving two Certificate of Achievement Awards. He worked for 10 years in the marketing division of Goodall Rubber Company. The majority of his professional career in Real Estate reflected his love of New Hope and the surrounding communities. He worked for John Root Real Estate, Prudential Fox & Roach Realtors, NT Callaway Real Estate and Addison Wolfe Real Estate.
He was on the Board of Directors of the New Hope Historical Society (President 2003); the Board of Directors of the New Hope-Lambertville Winter Festival (Co-Chair 2005); Delaware Valley United Way (Loan Executive/one year); United States Equestrian Team Volunteer and active in the "Dump The Pump" campaign.
