The term “gentle soul” is a most apt description for Russell L. Scott who passed away on November 5th 2017 at Danbury Hospital after a brief illness. He was 60-years-old. A celebration of his life will take place on Friday, November 17th, at 4:00 PM, at 421 Main Street after a brief graveside burial at Mapleshade Cemetery commencing at 3:00 PM.
Many in the Ridgefield community knew “Russ” as he was affectionately called. He always was eager to greet people, say a kind word, and smile. He attended various groups run by the Sphere Program that provides services for individuals with developmental disabilities. He valued his friends above all else and would frequently invite them over to his house to watch movies and to share soda and chips. He was always willing to ask people how they were doing and was genuinely concerned about their welfare. Never aggressive, never mean spirited, he truly was a living example of the “gentle soul.”
