  • Scotty…I miss you already. We had some pretty good talks. I will miss our plans for slapping $50 on the bar and telling them to call the cops! Love you buddy! I will see you another day pal…RIP…Matty

  • Meghan and Richard,
    I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I started my day walking in with him each morning when he worked here.
    Sympathy to all of you, and may he rest in peace.

  • Meghan and Richard,
    I am sorry for your loss and I have good memories of your father when he worked here. I occasionally got to joke with him when the Vikings would beat the Packers as he was one of the few proud Packers fans here back in the day. May he rest in peace.

  • Meghan and Richard,

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Your father shared wonderful stories about each of you while working together through the years at Northern Tool. Each time I traveled with Scott we shared great stories and good food, he knew where all of the good restaurants were. So many good memories!

    Rest in peace my friend,

    Bob Buss
