Brandon Harpe grew accustomed to seeing Lloyd E. “Barney” Scott sit at the west end of the gymnasium that bears his name, watching the Seymour High School basketball teams compete on the court.

The SHS athletic director said Scott also would stop by his office to check in and talk.

But on Wednesday, Scott died at age 85.

“It was always a treat to have him in here,” Harpe said. “He’d come in and check on me once a week or so, and I just loved to have him come in here, and I would listen to the way things used to be. But he always told those stories with respect to now.”
