RIP Love, Paula Paula Renee Worthy, July 25, 2009 Scooter was a great friend to have. He was always in a good mood, no matter how much bad stuff was coming his way. He always seemed the happiest when his family was gathered 'round him, and he drew strength from them. He also loved to ride his Harley. Seems like he was always working on it, trying to make it run better or look better, but when it was time to ride, he was on it! Ride on, good friend.
