Scott David Whitney, age 61, passed away Friday June 28, 2019, at his home on Lower Plains road in Salisbury Vermont.


Scott was born April 24, 1958, in Middlebury, the youngest of six children to Herbert Fred Whitney and Laurette Elizabeth Supernois. He spent his early years exploring the rivers and hills surrounding his family home on the North Branch road in East Middlebury.  He spent his summers at the gorge and up to Sandy Beach, at the end of the Old Iron Forge Road. It was here he fell in love with fishing, his favorite pastime. His first venture in the employment world was his newspaper route throughout the village. Scott attended grade school in Middlebury and graduated from Middlebury Union High School in 1976. Fresh out of school he began employment with Commission Sales on Rte. 116, then later with Tom Dwyer at his scrap yard on Ossie Road in East Middlebury. He next worked a short time for Browns Novelty then started his long career at Polymers Plastic Shop. Scott retired from the shop in 2009 and enjoyed his later years being outdoors, hunting, fishing, telling stories and spending time with his family. He was an excellent botanist, naturalist and trapper. He often boasted about receiving an award for being the “highest quality trapper” in the north east.  A distinction he received from the North America Fur Auctions in 2016, for the quality of his fur.


Scott is survived by a wonderful woman, partner and love of his life Gina, and their special basset hound Hunter. He is also survived by his brother Barry Whitney, Sr and sister in law Pam of Salisbury, Sister Jill Smith of Middlebury, many nieces, nephews, great nieces/nephews and great, great nieces/nephews.

My deepest sympathy to the Whitney family and his partner, Gina for your loss. I have very fond memories of Squeak in high school and later in our lives by seeing him around town. It was always nice to catch up with him. Squeak will be missed by many. May he rest in peace.
