My brother-in-law, Scott Walton, was the pilot of the Care Flight medical plane that crashed fatally on Friday, Feb. 24, in Nevada. Transporting patients to receive life-saving care was an absolute passion and life’s mission for Scott. He was one of those special people who lit up a room, who brought smiles to everyone’s face, who never met a stranger.
Now his loving wife and three young daughters, who were the center of his world, are left to navigate the future without him. He loved them more than absolutely anything in the world. And we know his one, desperate worry will be their future.
In addition to being the rock of his family, he was also the main financial provider for the family.
To help his wife with the uncertain future ahead, we have started this GoFundMe to benefit them. All donations will be given to Scott’s wife to help provide for the girls’ future.
We appreciate any and all support to help provide for them. Your thoughts and prayers are also appreciated.
Scott’s family is grieving deeply and asks for your prayers and understanding of their desire for privacy at this time.
Scott was an exceptional pilot of the highest caliber. He spent years as a flight instructor, teaching students from around the world to fly. We have no doubt that whatever happened during the flight was unrecoverable and that Scott did everything possible to keep all aboard safe.
Our hearts are broken for all those aboard the flight. We pray for all those who love them and are grieving too.
**This is the family's official GoFundMe fundraiser. All donations will go directly to Scott's wife.**
