Scott Stone (Age 63)
Of Fairfax, VA, died unexpectedly in the early hours of February 19, 2016. Born February 23, 1952 in Bridgeport, CT to Aidan Stone & Barbara Bates Stone, Scott was raised in Louisville, KY and attended Yale University as both an undergraduate and law student. After practicing for over 35 years as a partner at Patton Boggs, Scott left the law in 2012 in order to pursue his highest passion - the education and enrichment of young minds - as a Physics teacher at Fairfax and Langley high schools and a science and math tutor to local students. He was a mentor and friend to many young people throughout the years, whether as a coach to his daughter''s elementary school soccer club or sponsor of the nationally ranked Langley Model United Nations team. Scott was universally beloved by friends, family, and students for his intelligence, gentleness, generosity, and humor. He served twice as Church Council President at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, and for many years sang in the choir and taught high school Sunday School as well. He is survived by wife, Tykie Tobin; daughters, Elizabeth and Katherine Stone; mother, Barbara Stone, and siblings Susan McGarrity, Ted Stone, and Janet Seitzer.
