But depression is an illness and it's a battle that can not always be won. His demons were stronger than his love for family and friends and Depression won the battle of his life.
His family is looking for financial assistance to give him the funeral and celebration of life that he would want and deserves.
The money raised here would pay for the funeral, the burial plot and services related to the costs of burying a loved one. This loved one - Scott Gardner.
Any amount would be helpful in making this day of rememberance not as painful for Curtis, his 16 year old son.
Curtis doesn't know about his fathers passing yet, so we ask you not to reach out to him and be careful of any social postings until he returns from his school trip on the 29th.
This site will be updated once we have set a date and time for the viewing, funeral and burial.
Depression can not be cured, but it can be treated. And it doesn't just affect the person with the disease but leaves victims in it's wake of descrution.
Thank you for your love, help and support.
