SCOTT NEWMAN Obituary (2022) – Waltham, MA
NEWMAN, Scott’s favorite relative, Waltham’s best friend and a native of Nashua, NH, died suddenly of complications from a heart condition on January 16, 2022. He was 54 years old. Scott was funny, humble and caring. He adored his family and cherished his friends. The feeling was mutual, as Scott was everyone’s cherished parent and best friend. Whether it was watching football with Dave, cooking with Vinny, picking apples with his mom, or soaking up the sun and surfing on Plum Island with his brothers and dad, Scott made the event special . Along with his family and friends, Scott surrounded himself with tasty food and great music. Scott’s homemade guacamole was legendary, and he could recite the words of Grateful Dead on any occasion. Scott often brought his tunes and culinary concoctions to Gillette Stadium, where he heeled with Patriots Nation and cheered on his team. He also enjoyed the local music scene, becoming an avid fan of Jiggle the Handle and their acoustic offshoot, the Coal Boilers. In his youth, Scott excelled in sports. On the baseball field, fearless runners learned the hard way not to try to steal second base when Scott was behind home plate. And when a clutch kick was needed, it consistently delivered. While in Nashua High School, Scott played on the varsity football team, helping lead the Purple Panthers to a state championship. Scott was as gentle and kind to animals as he was to people. He had a special bond with his dog, Moses, often responding to his pup’s cries with lines such as “Roo to you too”. Her cats, Spark and Ollie, couldn’t have had a better home either. Simply put, Scott was a decent human being. Scott was lighthearted, with an easy chuckle and a twinkle in his eye. He had many friends because he was a good friend to them. Scott only had good things to say about others. He was genuinely concerned about the environment, animal welfare and helping others. Scott made daily decisions for the greater good and didn’t hesitate to “be there” when needed. After graduating from Nashua High School, Scott earned a bachelor’s degree from Northeastern University. For the past 20 years, Scott has proudly worked in advertising sales for Register Tape Unlimited, Inc., becoming well known and appreciated by the many clients in his territory. Scott’s bond with his family was exceptionally strong. Scott spoke daily with his parents and brothers and was an involved uncle to his nieces and nephew. His visits to his mother and sister-in-law were usually adorned with a bouquet of flowers. Our time spent with Scott was invaluable, and we would love to have even more of it. Scott is survived by his father, Elliot, of Newburyport, MA.; his mother, Leila Deurell, of Stratham, NH; his brother Steele; sister-in-law Yamaming; and niece Anna, of Mukilteo, WA; his brother Todd; sister-in-law Heidi; nephew Adam; and his niece Anna, of West Newbury, MA; and her great-aunt, Charlotte Feldman of Dedham, MA. When the weather warms and outdoor gatherings become possible, a celebration of life will be held in Scott’s honor. Family and friends will be informed of the details.
