...very shocked. Been thinking about him all day. God speed Scotty, wish we could have hung out more. I hope to make it out on Monday, but think that work wont let me. One of the draw backs of being self employed. Take him high, and let him fly. Again, I am very sorry for the loss, he will be missed.
My most humble wishes for peace and consolement go out to all those who were close to Scotty. I didn't get the chance to get close to him, but am grateful we chatted on New Year's Eve by the bonfire. Biggest hugs for Kathryn, my dear Adam, daughter Amber and John. I wish I could take away your pain. Tanya
scotty you will be missed... you are loved... and you will always be in my heart and thoughts.... thank you for everything you shared with me... you were always nothing but a true friend... i will always love you for that... god speed too you my friend... and blue skies.

Skydive Taft is devastated by the loss of Scotty Stonebraker. Scotty passed away late Monday night .
We know that Scotty had friends all over the country at DZs he worked for and jumped at (especially in California and Hawaii).
We are having a memorial service / ash dive for Scotty. If you would like information about attending or if you have any footage of Scotty that we could edit into a memorial video, please PM me.
Scotty was the tandem instructor for a bunch of friends of mine that came out to Taft back in November. He was a great dude and just about every DZ Ive been to since had somebody with a great story about him.
Every time I listen to the Frank Zappa tapes you made for me I will think of you! And that stack of Grateful Dead bootlegs I made for you. I didn't think you kids even liked them anymore, but you did and it was a small thing to do to make you happy. I'll miss you too Scotty. You weren't even half my age and could have had so much more of life. I was always happy to see you and amazed at what an accomplished skydiver you were at such a young age.
Anyway, here's the only pic I have of you.
