Sad News About Scotchyn

Post by Griffworks » Wed Sep 20, 2017 9:50 pm

It is with much sadness that I report that Scott / Scotchyn passed away sometime last night or earlier today. I don't know all the details, but it was likely health issues due to complications from chemo.

He was one Hell of a great guy and will be deeply missed. This Earth is darker for his passing.... :(

Hear hear. I had a chance to meet him in person at Wonderfest and I echo that he was a hell of a great guy. He will be missed around here.

Yea, darker. I remember him being an upbeat kind of guy.

Sad news indeed. He was a great guy for the short time I knew him with always a kind word to say about a new build.
I will miss his in depth reports on kits too.

:cry:
Ave, Scotchyn!
Taken before your time.
you were one funny bastard, and were earnest to a fault.

You had so many ideas too, always had ideas to improve a build at any scale.
(you introduced many polychora and irregular geometries, and even had ideas on how they might be illuminated :borg: )

Warpspeed Mr Scotchyn!

Definitely he will be missed. Another star in the sky that faded away.

Great guy, great builder (and painter, and decaller), his threads of his builds are a great reference for everyone that will remain.

I can't find the words, having just read El Gato's PM today. I am devastated, but cannot delve into the particulars in a public forum.

Neither can I write what this very sweet man deserves. Not now at least. I only spoke to him a week or so ago, so the reality is too much to deal with.

I just forced myself to write -something- right now, out of love and respect for my friend Scott.
