Scott Hobson Colborn
Scott H. Colborn, 68, passed away on Monday, March 30th, 2020. He is survived by his children, Melissa and Asher Colborn, his brother, Craig Colborn, nephew Jon Colborn, and many, many friends. A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date.
Scott was born in Lincoln on November 11th, 1951 to Robert and Gentry (Hobson) Colborn. Scott was a people person, it didn’t matter whether you were acquainted or not. He could be very goofy – he loved to have fun. He got that from his mother. Scott’s signature outfit (worn daily) was a Hawaiian shirt, khaki shorts, socks, and Birkenstock’s. You’d never find him in anything else. Scott didn’t have a mean bone in his body; he was always looking for the positive in any situation.
Scott loved music – he started playing guitar as a young teenager in various bands and ended up teaching it full time to anyone who wanted to learn or hone their guitar skills. When he wasn’t playing guitar, Scott loved to sit down with a good book and a hot cup of coffee. He was a big reader and was always making trips to the local library to pick out new true crime/mystery novels to read (a habit that was passed on to his children).
Scott was also a very inquisitive person; he loved exploring unexplained phenomena and hosted a radio program by that name on KZUM for 40 years. He was the face of The Ghosts of Lincoln Bus Tours that he and his daughter Melissa facilitated each fall and was always excited when someone told him their ghost story.
During the 70’s and 80’s, Scott was a successful real estate broker and would often joke that he was “broker” than most. He was constantly cracking corny jokes to make people smile.
Scott re-discovered his spiritual side many years ago and began learning under various spiritual teachers. He and his then wife, Kathryn (Kate) Colborn, opened a new-age music and book store called The Way Home, which opened the door to many lasting friendships. Years after the store was closed, he began attending his home church, Westminster Presbyterian, once more and eventually became a Deacon there; church and fellowship were very important to him. However, nothing in his life was more important to him than his children. He would do anything for them.
God bless you, Scott.
Service in the future.

Condolences for Scott Hobson Colborn
This is like losing a member of my family. I have known him since he was born. His mother and mine grew up together in Superior and for 50 years lived within a half a block from each other. You will be missed, Scott, but not forgotten. Fly high and spread your wings. Roger Yant
I was saddened to hear of Scott’s passing. He was such a kind and caring man that encourage grace and peace. He had an infectious smile and great laugh which brought joy and light to those around him. He will be greatly missed.

Scott was a dear brother in law to me and uncle to Jon and great uncle to Miles and Campbell. He was a kind, gentle soul who also had a great sense of humor. He will be so missed by so many. His legacy lives on in his children and so many others. Scott, you are well loved and will never be forgotten.
“It is not length of life, but depth of life.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Scott embodied those words as much as anyone I’ve ever known. Every time I was with him, I came away happier, and, yes, just a bit of a better person.
We were crushed to hear of Scott’s passing. My daughter Ari has taken lessons with him for about a year and a half. He was a joy to her, and taught her so much. He worked with her to learn one of her favorite songs “Hedwig’s Theme”. He was always joyful and encouraging. He was so loved by her and our family. Peace and Guitars ♥️ -Tracy Badeer
I am so sorry for your loss! Every Saturday I looked so forward to hearing Scott’s happy, upbeat voice. He had such a wonderful way of interviewing people. Although I never met him, I feel like I know him. He will be very much missed.
Scott was a good friend, mentor, teacher, and the happiest man I have ever met. I tremendously enjoyed helping him out at KZUM all these years and he was the consummate radio host, always respectful to his guests, listeners, and staff. He will be greatly missed not only by myself but also by the people he has touched all over the world. Walk in beauty, Scott.
Travel well my friend, much love is with you. You will be missed so much in this world, thank you for the gift you gave us, my condolences and prayers to your family.
Im so very sorry for your loss..
Scott was a beautiful soul..
And he will be so missed by so many..
Rest in Pease Scott..
What a special guy. I didn’t know him well but listened to him on KZUM for many years. He was so curious and open minded. He seemed like a friend.
I was lucky and got to join him in the studio in the last couple of years.
Dear Colborn family,
Scott was a friend of mine dating All the way back to our elementary school days. It was wonderful living just across the street from Scott and family, on Woods Blvd. I always admired Scott’s zest for life and for his love of people. May you be comforted at this sad time.
My deepest condolences,
Rest in Peace my Friend
I only recently got to know Scott personally, through a group of friends from high school that meet every couple of months. He was very engaging to speak with, always very upbeat. He was a great storyteller, and always had an interesting perspective of life’s experiences. He will be missed by many.
One of the best people you could ever meet. He will be missed, big time. Good friend.
I met Scott in 1989 through his Fortean Research Center, we interacted often when I attended the UFO conventions, paranormal workshops, and ghost tours. He was always friendly, kind, interesting, and interested in others. Once at a UFO convention, a presenter was showing illustrations of various E.T.s, when a woman suddenly screamed and ran out of the auditorium crying and saying, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry”. Scott got up and ran after her. When an intermission occurred 20 or 30 minutes later, I saw Scott and the woman in the lobby, he was comforting her with his hand on her shoulder as she continued to wipe her eyes. It was this show of compassion that I thought of when ever I saw or heard him on the radio. Farewell Scott, say hello to Tom Dayton.
My wife Deb and I never met Scott, but we regularly listened to him on his EUP radio program on KZUM dating back to the five years we lived in Lincoln. Now we live in Nevada again and still listen each Saturday over the Internet. We were thrilled a few weeks ago when Scott did a “shout-out” to the online listeners in Reno and we were positive it was us. Scott was always respectful and kind to his radio guests and was generous in offering time each Saturday for “pet talk” to help find loving homes for dogs and cats in Lincoln. These acts showed his compassion for others and his kindness towards animals. We offer our sincere condolences to Scott’s family and his close friends. Please find comfort and peace during this time of grief.
Scott was such a positive force. Loved his ghost tours – what a story teller. He will be missed.
Go make beautiful music with the Heavenly Choir and be happy in the knowledge that so many here have wonderful memories of you.
Melissa and Asher- Your father was a very important person in my life. We met at Nursery School at Westminster Presbyterian Church when we were 3 or 4 years old. We had years when we didn’t communicate but when he and your mother had the bookstore, I reconnected with him. We have emailed and chatted sporadically since then. On one of your trips to Estes Park he brought you both over Trail Ridge to visit me and my family at our Grand Lake home. It was a special treat for me to meet you both and share with all three of you a place that has always been special to me. Living in Colorado meant very little face to face contact with your father. That in no way lessened the importance he played in my life. We used to laugh about it. The pivotal memories I have of him are not memories he shared. They were only important moments to me. I treasured our friendship and will continue to treasure his memory. I am deeply saddened by his death. I cannot begin to know how his death has impacted you. What I do know is he loved you both and was proud of the individuals you had become. Please know my heart and love go out to you.
To Scott’s Family, I’m deeply saddened by the news of Scott’s sudden passing. He and I were neighbors in upper elementary grades, in school together since junior high and graduated together from Lincoln Southeast HS’s Class of 1970. I have appreciated Scott’s involvements in music, the Lincoln community and especially his dedication to bringing our classmates together as often as possible. He has meant so much to me and other classmates and I will miss him. I know how deeply he loved Melissa and Asher and wish them comfort through this difficult time. In sympathy and friendship, Pam Savery
I’ve been taking lessons from Scott for several years and he was always such a kind person. He always was patient with me and was always such a positive person. I’ve never met someone who’s had such a kind heart as Scott.
We were devastated to hear of Scott’s passing. During the six years he taught my daughter guitar I often got to sit nearby and listen, and I was always amazed by Scott’s unfailing positive attitude and patience. The last time I spoke to him he thanked me for letting him teach my daughter, and that seemed to be the way he approached life in general–always enthusiastic, appreciative, and grateful. I should have known when he didn’t answer the phone at my daughter’s lesson time yesterday that he was gone, because Scott never let you down, period.
To Scott’s family and friends,
My heart is embracing yours at this news. Wow. Scott has been such a blessing in my life, and I suspect, in every life he touched. I knew him through his work with KZUM, and I know he did so much more good works than that. His stories and his little sayings will live on in me, and in you. Know that. My tears help me release Scott to go on to more good things. May you always walk in Light. May you, his fam and friends, each find the way now that is perfect and full of Grace and ease for you. Much love from the mountains.
Years ago when I was shopping at The Way Home, Scott asked if I wanted to join a band he was forming, somewhat of a personal rededication of himself to music. We formed “Dixon Jane” with Judy, Chuck and Craig and had a blast rehearsing upstairs at the book store and playing Antelope Park and Duggan’s Pub. A superb guitarist and a consummate musician, his sincere advice to us was “If it’s too loud for you, I suggest you wear earplugs.” Thanks for the experiences and the memories, Scott, it was grand knowing you!
I think I heard the first time Scott signed on the air doing his original KZUM show, Woodstock & Obscure Rock. He’ll live on in our memories and in the recorded archives. Grateful I made his acquaintance. I’ll never forget the autograph line at the store the day Allen Ginsberg was there.
As Jimi Hendrix said:
…I’m a million miles away
And at the same time I’m right here in your picture frame…
…if I don’t meet you no more in this world
I’ll meet you in the next one
And don’t be late, don’t be late
‘Cause I’m a voodoo child…
Dear Mr Colborn, Rest In Peace. You will be missed tremendously by all of us in our family. You gave us the tremendous gift of music and unbridled joy in learning it from a seasoned teacher like you. Your grace and peace and kindness made our lives so much better.

We met Scott when my son and daughter starting taking guitar lessons with him. He was not only a gifted teacher, but he took the time to speak into them. We told Scott that we were in the market to buy a guitar for our son and he called us one day with a beauty that had come in to Dietze. He truly did care for others. I am sorry for your loss and join with you in remembering what a gifted, compassionate man that he was.. I know that he will be at true peace in the presence of his Savior.
What a crushing blow to learn that Scott has passed. I will always remember him as the Great Ambassador at our Church. Every Sunday he would walk down the aisle extending a warm handshake and smile to everyone he passed, friend or stranger. I always looked forward to seeing him. He was one of a kind. God bless him.
Scott was such a powerful force in keeping LSE70 together. All of us will miss him.
While you a grasping for explanations of why he left so suddenly try and reflect on the good times and how much Scott loved life.
I met Scott through Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, then reconnected in the mid ‘80s at KZUM.
Scott was always a model of patience and positivity. Clearly, all of us remember him as an above average guy, who, to my knowledge never made any enemies in this life.
Scott had a life well-lived, and he set the bar high on how we behave, and we can all aspire to draw inspiration from knowing him.
I’m so glad that I met you. You were a true gentleman who was always a delight to talk to.
I loved “The Way Home” and really miss hanging out there chatting, and glad to have met your family there & always enjoyed making new friends too.
I have enjoyed listening to KZUM & “Exploring the Unexplained Phenomena Program”. You’ll be greatly missed and so sorry we didn’t get the chance to see each other again to chat.
I’ll see you again on the other side my friend and will of course be looking for the guy in the Hawaiian shirt w/ wings.
I’m sure my mom Dorothy was up there to greet you in Heaven as she always enjoyed visiting with you as well.
~•☆•~Keep playing your guitar.~•☆•~
♡ My heart felt and deepest sincere sympathies to the “Colburn Klan” family, friends, students and coworkers of this grand gent.♡
And in Scott’s immortal words….
Scott, from the early 1970s, hanging out at your house with friends when you taught me how to play chess, to a few weeks ago at KZUM where we ran into each other, you have always been a great guy to me. I loved listening to your Exploring Unexplained Phenomena radio show all these years. I can’t believe you’ve already beamed up, sir! :^( But I truly hope you are having a good time, and that many questions are now answered. We will miss you so much! My sincere sympathies to your much loved kids and family.
Scott Colborn: “I am peace”. Yes, I believe you are. Now rest……now get busy, the universe needs you more than ever. Later, my friend.
“Peace and Guitars.”

Scott you will truly be missed my friend, may you rest
Words fail me. As we went through life to this point we came in and out of each other’s orbit and it was like we had never parted. Scott was a wonderful caring person and his presence will be greatly missed.
To Scott’s Family,
You don’t know me, but I am one of 1970 graduates from Southeast that have been touched by Scott’s life.
I feel like Scott has been a friend that checks in daily these last few years to keep me up to date with what is happening to our high school friends. Somehow, I feel close to him like he was a dear friend. His messages were always upbeat and lovely. Scott, I am so sorry you had your time on this crazy planet shortened. Thank you for everything you have done. You will be missed.
Blessings and love to your family.
Rest In Peace,
Tina Adams Hille
My most sincere condolences at Scott’s passing. His kind and positive approach to keeping our high school class connected was joyful to behold.
Scott was one of the kindest person I ever met. I will cherish the Sunday guitar classes with him. I learned so much from him, as both an Artist and as a Man.
I first met Scott in about 1972.We became Friends and shared a house together with several other Lifelong Pals. Even then, Scott was a Rock;the Voice of Reason when most of us were not very Reasonable. We stayed Friends all this time even though we sometimes went for stretches without seeing each other.
Scott was One of a Kind. And yes, I’m thinking of more than his Daily Outfit.
What a Journey He Had: Guitar, Whale, Guitar, Beer Making, Vegetarian, Guitar, The Unexplained, The Way Home, Guitar,Ghost Tours etc.
Luckily, a Group of Friends from the Past began Reuniting every few Months for Lunch; To Reminisce and try to recall Past Good Times, even though our Memories don’t always Jibe. Onward Scott. Explore, ask Questions and Keep The Faith!
There is a vacant place right down front at Westminster Presbyterian Church, where Scott sat, worshiped, and was an encouraging spirit in his faith community. Scott served in many areas of the church, and could be depended on to be a positive voice in that community of friends. I will miss his “thumbs up” to the choir, after the anthem had been sung. And, I’ll also especially miss his Hawaiian shirts he wore to worship – all year ’round. Gone too early – never to be forgotten. Sympathy is sent to his family at their loss.
I have never met Scott but his kindness was evident when my son-in-law passed away a few weeks ago….My grandson was one of Scott’s guitar students….It was heartwarming when Scott called to check on my grandson after the loss of his father…May you rest in peace and I will also remember your thoughtfulness.
I met Scott many years ago when I would visit The Way Home music and book store and always found him kind, good-natured and helpful. My deepest sympathy to all his family and friends.
To Scott’s Family, Here is my condolence for the passing of Scott. I listened to him for many years on the Exploring Unexplained Phenomena radio program on KZUM. I was always intrigued about his stories about UFOs, alien beings, strange animals, ghosts, and life after death. He was always happy and cheerful and didn’t seem to be afraid of the unexplained phenomena. Take care and God bless.
Lincoln has lost one of its most unique personalities with the passing of Scott. The Colborn and Sayre families go back a long ways and Scott and I had a mutual admiration that was rooted in our shared history. He was a positive force in my life when I was going through a divorce and I tried to be the same when it happened to him. He was a truly gifted artist and his guitar playing ranked right up there with the best of this area. He was way too humble regarding that in my opinion. He opened my ears to the soothing and mystical sounds of ambient music and I will always be grateful to him for that. Although his calm and reassuring voice will be missed on the radio, you will not be soon forgotten my friend and I’m so grateful to have shared this world with you.
Years ago Scott and his mom would come in and shop at the grocery store that I worked at, they always made my day brighter…beautiful souls.
RIP dear friend and Teacher! Thank You!
I wish to extend my sympathy to Scott’s family and many friends. I knew Scott
At Westminster Presbyterian church. Scott’s cheery greeting and willingness to help was so welcome and needed. We will miss him and mourn his loss.
Dear Craig and Colborn Family,
I was so very sorry to hear of the passing of Scott. The Colborn boys bring back happy memories of our Woods Blvd days. Please know our thought and prayers are with you all.
I sent the below out to friends with a few graphics, but wanted to post here as well.
I met Scott Colburn almost 40 years ago when I was a DJ at Public Radio KZUM-FM. This guy had an infectious attitude that you could not help but love. He was always upbeat and smiling with lots of fun comments and of course, THOSE HAWAIIAN SHIRTS! He had one on the day I met him and never saw him without one. Soon, he had a radio show on KZUM which I was happy to hear. It was called “Woodstock & Obscure Rock.” For what it was worth, it could have had MY show’s name of “Strictly 60’s.” His focused more on that late 60’s/early 70’s period. Both shows were on KZUM Wednesdays–Scott’s in morning and mine at night.
We became good friends seeing each other at station meetings and we often did fund raising events for KZUM. We emceed live events together and one such was a VERY cold 1985 night in downtown Lincoln when we did a KZUM “Blizzard Dance Party” in which we showed Annette’s “Beach Blanket Bingo” movie and had a picnic as a station fund raiser. I’ll give you one guess who came up with THAT idea. It was the man who didn’t need to change for the event: Hawaiian shirt and shorts and flip flops! BTW, Lincoln had 9 days in that month of 1985 below zero. I remember that night must have been close to one of those.
It wasn’t long and Scott opened up “The Way Home” book store which featured things from his passion of Unexplained Phenomena (UFO’s etc) which became his new KZUM Saturday Morning show. It started in 1984 and was still going strong at the time of Scott’s untimely passing. It is thought to be longest running show on the subject. When I started working a night shift and left KZUM after 10 years, we lost touch some, but emailed again in the past decade several times.
He started his “Lincoln Ghost Tours” which became sellouts every Halloween with Scott a big part of it. He taught guitar lessons to a friend of mine at work and we talked about that and Scott was so kind to his student/my friend, Will.
It’s tough to lose a KZUM member from the good old days when we fought for every dime to keep the little 10 watt station afloat that is now heard worldwide on the internet. Scott was certainly one of the best of the best and lived as full of a life as I could imagine. He was a true KZUM joy.
I’ll leave you with a few words FROM Scott in emails he sent over the past year. That will tell you all you need to know about my friend Scott.
Clark Besch (KZUM 1980-89).
A Hawaiian shirt almost every day. I have a fav black shirt that I wear occasionally, but that’s only to put a break in the Hawaiian run.
The Way Home Music & Books was open 19 years, but I’m glad now that I don’t have it open. I have much more freedom now; I didn’t take a vacation for 10 years and worked just about 7 days a week for 10 of the 19 years. It was a cool place to raise my kids (Melissa and Asher).
The 60’s still have the best music as far as I’m concerned ! You did a great program at KZUM, Clark, and you really helped me by letting me shadow you as I watched you do the records and on-air mic work. Thank you again for that help many years ago.
Happy Thanksgiving ! Just went to youtube and listened to the full “Alice’s Restaurant.”
In the end it’s all about love. Not about possessions or material goods. It’s about the love in one’s heart. Never turn away from the opportunity to share that love with others. Love is the glue of the universe
Happy New Year to you and your family and may you continue to do better and better in all ways, and may you have the courage and strength to climb those mountains in front of you and realize looking back that they were opportunities disguised as challenges and road blocks. Faith and hope abound.
Family, friends and health. God Bless us all.
Peace and joy !
Scott Colborn and family.
Host, Exploring Unexplained Phenomena radio program.
Guitar teacher to those about to rock.
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.”
John 5:1, NRSV.
Melissa Colborn and I did 18 nights of the Ghosts of Lincoln bus tours in October `15 and had so much fun. October 10th the Exploring Unexplained Phenomena radio program celebrated 31 years of broadcast.
In November I had a friend who purchased a Les Paul from me in `03 offer to sell it back to me and I’m glad to have that one back. I’m thankful that when that High School football coach said “choose playing football or playing guitar with your band” that I chose guitar.
I’m thankful for my family and many friends. I’m thankful for my deepening relationship with God and place my trust in the good news that Jesus spoke of. I’m thankful for my relationship with Westminster Presbyterian Church and the fellowship with those great folks. I’m thankful for having intuition and dreams and appreciate the guidance that I’m given in those areas.
I closed my store in `05 and have been teaching guitar since. The EUP radio program continues ! Hope you are doing great.
One more thing. As I walked outside yesterday during these trying days, I looked up to see no jet contrails. That is so strange, alike after 911. YET, I couldn’t help but think that Scott was smiling down as he flew by in a UFO! Scott, NOW, you know “the rest of the story!” Rest in Peace, bruddah.
I became acquainted with Scott at the Way Home Book Store where I frequently would stop; yes, on my way home! He would always take time to chat, and he had some rather interesting theological perspectives to share. I was on his Email list for literally years; and even though we weren’t really close, he always treated me like a long-time friend. I know he will be dearly missed by many friends, and his family of which he was very proud. Rest in peace!

To the Family of Scott Colborn,
Scott and I attended the same high school (Lincoln Southeast), however, I did not know him personally back then (he was a year older than I) aside from his being a phenomenal guitar player. I remember trying to hear any performances he and his band were giving as they were truly special.
It was not until the mid-90’s that I met and actually came to know Scott. Living in Seattle, I had come to Lincoln with my family for one of our usual visits back home. I noticed a picture of a crop circle on the front page of the Lincoln Journal Star and read that Scott was a respected researcher who studied these and other unusual phenomena. Being a physician specializing in psychiatry, and having a keen interest in these sorts of things, I promptly called Scott and arranged a meeting. Over the ensuing years, Scott became a trusted research colleague and one of my closest personal friends. I have listened to nearly all of his Exploring Unexplained Phenomena radio shows and have been blessed to spend many hours and days with him over the years, attending various conferences having to do with these topics. He is truly known and respected internationally for his extensive work and educational activities in these areas.
Scott’s exceptional personal and intellectual abilities were always on display when he conducted his radio show. He was very curious and open to new experiences and ideas, but was impressively discerning and an excellent critical thinker. Unwaveringly respectful and diplomatic, both publicly and privately, Scott had the ability to make people feel heard and understood even if he was in disagreement with them. I often told him, sincerely, that he had great “natural therapist skills.” I will be forever grateful for the support and guidance that he offered me when I shared some of my own personal challenges with him as a friend.
Like so many other lives that he touched, I feel very blessed to have experienced the warmth, humor, persistent optimism, empathy, insight, and compassion that characterized Scott Colborn. The studies that Scott and I shared having to do with the intersection of science, consciousness, and spirituality leave me with the comfort that the essence of who he is lives on and that we will continue to enjoy his presents here and beyond.
With Love and Gratitude,
Dale Sobotka, M.D.
I first met Scott at Beattie Elementary school in the early 1960s. As I was the new kid, Scott took me under his wing and we became good friends. Even at that early age he was likeable, interested in many things – and he was funny! It’s not surprising that over 50 years later Scott maintained these same qualities, and made a positive impact on so many people – friends and strangers alike. My heartfelt condolences to the family.
Melissa and Asher, Lynn and I want to tell you how grateful we are for knowing your dad. He was a bright light in our Bible discussions at church, had a powerful memory for pithy statements by authors he had read and was an all around good friend. We know how much you miss him and want you to know we share your loss. There’s an empty place in our Sundayband Monday small grouos.
Scott’s passing leaves a tremendous void in this world. Not just among his family, where the loss is almost unfathomable, but among his friends, acquaintances, and many, many listeners. Having had the privilege of having Scott as a dear friend, research partner, and fellow goofball for nearly 40 years, I am absolutely stunned at his loss.
My deepest condolences to Melissa, Asher, kate, and all those who feel his absence. Peace and guitars it is, Scott!
Dear Colborn Family
You do not know me but Scott and I were very good friends in elementary school when he lived on Woods Blvd. At the time I lived just down the street on Marilyn Ave. Joe Adams, of course, was also in the neighborhood. What fun times!
Scott was such a great person. While I unfortunately lost contact with him it is obvious he was very much loved in the Lincoln area and undoubtedly beyond. I was saddened to hear of his passing.
My sincere condolences to the family.
Scott you were an amazing man. You and Kathryn really changed the lives of myself and my wife Jeanie. You turned me on to Acoustic Alchemy, which turned out to be the greatest band of my life next to Chicago. I was thinking of you when I saw them live last year in Denver. I always think of you at the small store on 48th. The smells the sights and sounds. I love you my brother and am joyous to have the time I could spend with you. In shock, no being could be sniffed out so suddenly.
It was a great time to be on the show with you Scott. I will always appreciate all that you have done, and I hope you meet my grandfather in the Spirit World. He was a great fan of yours.
My brother Scott was in school with Scott Colburn from grade school through high school. We both knew him from boy scouts. I was a regular at The Way Home until it closed. I love a good ghost story and remember one time when Dale Beacon was alive and giving the ghost tours of Lincoln – I was talking with Scott and he mentioned that he would love to be hiding at one of the locations when the bus pulled up and then run from bush to bush covered in a white sheet! I am almost surprised he never carried through with that idea!
We will miss you Scott, it seems that the best of people are always taken away from us much earlier than they should be. I still have a hard time accepting that I will not be seeing you every now and then and talking to you.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family
I was stunned to hear of Scott’s passing just this morning. I have been a fan of his radio program for close to 6 years. I was impressed by Scott’s interviewing style and he always had thoughtful questions for his guests. Even when I thought a guest might not be interesting, I always got something from the show. Over time, I supported the show with donated phone cards and Scott always thanked me with a friendly email. He even sent me a lovely picture of himself and his children which I know he was very proud of. I never met Scott face-to-face (I live in Ontario, Canada) but I felt like he was a good friend. I’m am crying typing this condolence. Even only knowing him in a virtual sense, I know Scott will be greatly missed by everyone whose life he touched. I will think of him often and pray he will continue his good work from the other side.
So sorry I didn’t realize Scott has passed away. I used to get a chuckle at his posts at times. It was clear he loved his pizza and his family. My condolences.
Today marks a year since Scott’s passing, and I have to say: his relentless positivity and good humor are still greatly missed.
