Losing a good friend of Ozarks Living, Bob Scott
We learned recently of the loss of a great friend, mentor and adviser. Bob Scott truly was a special and a good friend of what we were doing with Ozarks Living. From our days as GREENE Magazine, he shared his thoughts and suggestions, especially with living organically.
He was a long-time board member and the current treasurer of the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and often did educational outreach for the City of Springfield Environmental Services, working at special events, where he was glad to share his expert knowledge with anyone who asked, including our small publication. His approach to organic lawn improvement without chemical fertilizer was well worth the effort.
Bob was very modest, humble and unassuming, always good-humored, but truly an extraordinary source of insights. He was a successfully businessman who founded Brayfield Organics in Springfield, a distributor in the field of organic lawn & garden products.
Bob Scott was an early and constant source of wisdom and a great fan of Ozarks Living. The last time we talked was at the Butterfly Festival, and I remember thinking that he was looking a bit frail. But there he was, sharing his knowledge, time and energy with others.
Bob continued to give back to the community in extraordinary ways. I will be thinking of him and asking myself, “What would Bob do with this?”
