Some may have heard that Stephen Scott passed away suddenly last week.  Stephen was a member of the Old Order River Brethren church, an Anabaptist researcher and the author of numerous books on Anabaptist topics, such as Plain Buggies and Why Do They Dress That Way?

I came to know Steve at the Young Center at Elizabethtown College in 2008, and catching up with him was a highlight of return visits.  Steve knew Amish settlements very well and always had something interesting to share.  I certainly didn’t know Steve as long or as well as others, but I always appreciated our conversations, his warm demeanor and sense of humor.  He will surely be missed by many.

Steve’s funeral will be held today at 10am at Landisville Mennonite Church.  More details and a full obituary can be found here.
