|Peter Scott Hatten|
|Scott passed away February 15th, 2004 as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident. His daughter, Ashley, was born in 1983. His son Josh was born in 1981, and Jeremy was born in 1984. When I spoke with Scott in November of '02, he told me about his occupation involving telephones, computers, video, telecommunications, and other integrated technologies. Scott attended Hinds Junior College, Mississippi State University, and Wood Junior College. He enjoyed practicing karate including Krav Maga (Israeli hand-to-hand combat) and Jeetkunedo (Bruce Lee style). I remember him as "Scott," while many classmates knew him as "Peter Scott." Scott attended all three reunions up through 2003, although he missed the photo shoot at the 25. The photo above is one I took later that evening. My thanks to the numerous classmates who contacted me regarding Scott.|
