Scott James Munson: In Our Care ~ October 19, 2019

Scott James Munson

New York, New York……Scott James Munson was born July 23, 1967 in Ventura, California and three months later was adopted by David and Sue Munson in Thousand Oaks, CA. At the age of 4, Scott with his parents and older brother, Rick , moved to a farm near Weatherby, Missouri. He attended the Maysville Public School, graduating in the Class of 1985. He started a life long interest in Art, Theatre, nature, and marine life.

While pursuing a degree in theatre production at Lindenwood College in St. Charles, Missouri, he worked in a variety of Theatre venues, doing lighting, sound, and set production. After college he moved to New York to pursue his craft, where he resided until his death on October 19, 2019.

For several years Scott co-owned 3 off broadway theaters, renovating them and then managing set, lighting, and sound production for the plays mounted on the stages. This led to a job for the State of New York, monitoring the minority & women construction contracts for compliance.

When the building bubble collapsed, Scott returned to school and was working on getting advanced computer skills to embark on a career change.

Scott was preceded in death by his infant brother, Daniel and his mother, Sue.

Left to mourn his passing are his father David Munson and step-mother Joyce; brother, Richard (Renee); nephews, Kent and Brad; Joyce’s children, John, Kari, Kirsten & Tyra; and an extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins and their families.

    My deepest condolences to the Munson family. My favorite memory of Scott is the first time Scott asked me what were my three favorite songs. According to Scott, you could tell a lot about a person by the music they chose to listen to. (Oh how right he was!). I still think of him and smile whenever I hear someone ask, what is your favorite song?’

    I am very saddened to hear the news of Scott’s passing. I lived just down the road from Scott and his family in Weatherby and we attended Maysville R-I together. I will always charish my memories of Scott, he was a dear friend. My favorite times were our bus rides together; he had a great sense of humor and his laughter and smile were infectious. My heartfelt condolences goes out to his family in this sad occasion.

    I was very close friends with Scott for almost a decade and I am still in shock he has passed. I will never forget the wisdom and lessons he has taught me.
