Bradford ‘Brad’ Thomas Scott

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Bradford “Brad” Thomas Scott on Dec. 22, 2018. His remains will be spread in the places he loved most. He will live on in our memories as a funny, creative and gentle lover of music and nature.

He was born in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, on Sept. 7, 1961, to Tom and Bonnie Scott. He was raised in Cincinnati and Middletown, Ohio, before setting off on a life of adventure.

Never one to conform to societal expectations, he traveled with the Grateful Dead, worked a farm in the Arctic Circle, and worked as an observer for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on fishing boats in Alaska and off of the coast of Japan.

In the early ’90s, he moved to the North Shore of Kauai, living on the beach and helping to rebuild homes after Iniki. He loved children and taught at the local school. He got his scuba diving certification and participated in research for the University of Hawaii in Hanalei Bay. Always one with the gift of gab, he also worked for a tourist business hosting trips on the Na Pali Coast. He loved the island and its people and made it his home for the rest of his life.

In 1994 he was in a cycling accident that resulted in a spinal cord injury. His mother moved to Oahu to be with him during his rehab at Queen’s and the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific.

He is survived by his devoted and loving family and friends: father Tom Scott of Middletown, Ohio, sister Kim Scott and her fiancé Fletcher Andrews, sister Gwen Scott, niece Sophia Thomas, and brother-in-spirit Bryce Thomas, all of Seattle. He was preceded in death by his forever committed mother Bonnie Scott of Middletown, Ohio. “Fare you well, fare you well, I love you more than words can tell, Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.”
