Richard Scott Pierce, known as Scott, passed away early Thursday morning (January 31, 2019) surrounded by his family. He grew up in Amherst, Massachusetts but lived in Westfield for the past 35 years. Scott loved his work as a truck driver, both cross-country and in the northeast and knew every diner on his various routes! He retired from Lane Construction fifteen years ago.
