Scott Thomas Elder age 59 of Golden Valley. Scott was born in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota in 1961. In 2005, Scott suffered a stroke that caused him to have Locked In Syndrome. For 16 years he was in that position but still able to communicate with his eyes, and still had his funny and caring personality. After a long 16 years and many jokes later, he was sent to heaven to take on other tasks. He will be greatly missed, but will be in everyone's hearts forever.
