From his Facebook profile this morning:<br>

"It is my sad duty as Scott's sister, to tell everyone that Scott passed away today. If you would like any more information, please contact us, his family, at the following e-mail address: (deleted) <br>

Catherine Ross" <br>
Contact me, Ron K., via peermail if necessary and I'll send Catherine's email address to you.

Not only was Scott a long-time member of TechRepublic, but he was also someone I had befriended over the years. I will miss him greatly.

In June of 2008, I interviewed Scott in the TR Member Spotlight series. That's how I will remember him... one heck of a good guy.

Thanks for letting us know

I've sent you a peermail Ron, I'm trying to co-ordinate a joint donation from many of the active gang here. If I've missed anyone, and I'm sure I have, they can peermail me.

Scott was well loved, and his quirky humour brightened our days.

I've emailled Catherine to see what we can do, and been in touch with Sonia et al.

My apologies to those whose names or email addresses I've forgotten.

To All: Please peer me if I didn't email you, if you want to join me in some gesture from Scott's peers.
