    Our hearts were broken as we heard that Scott had passed away, he was part of our T-U Family and became close personal friends with many. Scott’s humor, his respect for others and his passion and pure love for transporting over dimensional cargo made him a strong and unique part of what we do at T-U!!! We use the term Truckismo (a commitment to overcoming challenges) and Scott was such..
    Our T-U Family will not understand the pain that his personal family is feeling but our hearts hurt.. Thoughts and Prayers to Scott and his family… Jeff and Cathy Fleming, Owners of Trans-United, Inc.
