We got the following from friends and wanted to pass it along. Scott was a wonderful person and we’re sorry to see him go…

I just got a text from Jan Emmerich. Scott passed away last night at home surrounded by his family. His battle with glioblastoma has ended. He was a good friend to many of us in the nfork.
