David Scott, a 23-year marine industry veteran, died suddenly at his home in Michigan on Sept. 28.

Sscott1009cott, 52, worked 10 years as internal sales manager for Crusader Engines and 15 years as marine/industrial sales manager at Cummins Bridgeway.

He is survived by his wife, Julie, and four children, daughter Kaylyn, 18, and sons Michael, 16, Thomas, 13, and Daniel, 11.

Scott was active in boat shows, dealer meetings and customer relations for Crusader and Cummins Bridgeway.

“Everyone wanted to deal with Dave,” said Scott’s father, Gerald.

“Dave made an enormous impact on so many lives,” reads an online remembrance. “He loved life and put a smile on the face of all that he came in contact with. He brought out the best in each and every person.”

    I had the pleasure of working with Dave at Crusader Engines for 15 years, who made a positive impact on my life. He treated everyone who came in contact with him with respect and professionalism. His infectious smile and friendly disposition forced you to love this guy from the first time you meet him. He treated everyone as if they were his best friend.
    Dave was a dynamic individual who lived life to the fullest, a man who loved his family and worked tirelessly for them.
    His countless number of his friends and the industry he worked will miss him dearly.

    Dave was a great guy. He was a great help to me when he was with
    Cummins. We lost him too soon.
