The President and the Executives of USACUA wish to inform the membership that one of the Founding Members of USACUA, Mr. Lloyd G. Scott has passed away.

USACUA Founder Mr. Lloyd G. Scott
USACUA Founder Mr. Lloyd G. Scott

Mr. Scott passed away last night (June 5th, 2018) while undergoing treatment at a hospital in Long Island, New York. It was through the insight and dedication of Mr. Scott that USACUA was formed and grew to its present state. Mr. Scott served USACUA unconditionally as President for a number of years. As a founder member his contributions to USACUA is innumerable. He was an avid lover of cricket and sought to provide guidance to anyone long after his playing days had ended.

Personally, Mr. Scott was a wealth of information and made himself available whenever called upon to provide constructive criticism. The name of Mr. Lloyd G. Scott will always remain etched in the annals of USACUA. Details regarding the final rites for Mr. Lloyd Scott will be made available in due course. His presence on this earth will surely be missed but never forgotten. USACUA has definitely lost a founding member of the highest quality.

The Executive Committee and the Association send their deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Scott.
