I received my last Email from Scott in November last year (2012). Reading this today on the Penn State Email list brought an immediate tear.
Those of us who constantly traded kidding Email insults with Scott or watched the PSU CDs he would send will miss him.
Excitement, danger, conspiracy, fun, a knowing glance, a twinkling eye, a devastating comment, an encouraging sigh, a penetrating question, and then off he'd go. Having Eisensmith stop by your cube was never dull. I had worked for many bosses, but none of them prepared me for working for Scott. Having worked for Scott, I felt ready to work for anyone. I'll be telling stories about this man until I meet him again. He was a pain in the butt, a fascinating person, and a hell of a story teller. I considered him a friend. I am sad that he had to go.
My sympathy to Michael, Melissa, Suzanne, Laurie, Randy and extended family; the world is a better place for having had Scott in it, even if only for those 59 years.Someday his grandchildren will read his obituary and realize what a "cool grandpa" they missed out on. Hopefully, Michael and Melissa will carry on his love of nature, Scouting, etc. RIP,Scott. -Nan (Loucks) Goode, Lititz, PA York Suburban High School,class of 1972
I am so sorry to learn of Scott's passing. My heartfelt sympathy to the family. I knew Scott from Valley View Elementary.
My condolences in Scott's passing... I will remember our time together in childhood fondly. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
So very sorry to learn of Scott's passing. Heartfelt sympathy on your loss.
I think I underestimated Scott in high school. He had the strength of character to pursue his own interests. How or why he was interested in snakes, I'll never know, but he did have a passion about them and he followed his passion. I'm sorry to hear about his death.
My deepest condolences and prayers.
