It is with great sorrow, and a heavy heart, that I bring you the news of our good friend Scott Bubar's passing !

I received the following e-mail from Scott's son , Jonathan ( his pride & joy) and its contents left me stunned and saddened.

"Hi Tom,
For the several past months my father has been in poor health. I recently finished a vacation with my father in Maine where his health was increasingly deteriorating. On August 24, my father died of heart failure. It was my father's wishes that I would inform the members of sword forum if he ever died. I was hoping that you, Tom, would be able to relay this message to the members of the forum. I am sorry for putting this burden on your shoulders, but at the present time I am having trouble registering with sword forum. I am also unaware as to where on the forum my Dad has posted. Once again I apologize for putting this burden on you, however I would really appreciate it if you could inform the members. -- Thank You, Jonathan Bubar"


My reply to Jonathan & Family :

Dear Jonathan

I am so sorry to hear about your Dad .... this comes as a real shock !
Please express my deepest condolences to your family, and of course to you, his pride & joy!
(he spoke to me often about you, as I did with him about my daughter Rachel, he was very very proud of you!)

I will of course notify his Forum friends on SFI, NetSword, myArmoury, and the Mohican boards, to which he was such a great contributor & friend !

I feel honored that you asked me to do this for Scott !

Your Dad was a very special man .... I'm glad that I had the chance to speak with him on the phone a few times, share many a good e-mail, and of course the hundreds of Forum discussions ! ( Scott always raised the most interesting questions, and usually found the answers before most of us :-)

He will be missed ....
Rest in Peace, my friend, the pipes will lead you home !

Please keep in touch, Jonathan ! -- Thomas aka Mac

God Bless you, Scott ! Your friend, Mac

This comes as a shock. Scott was a long time fixture of our small community and he'll definetly be missed.

The prayers of the Kelly family are with the Bubars.

I am soo sorry to hear of Scott's passing. I did not even know he was sick. I remember Scott helping me out in deciding details on my Anduril project years back. He even sent along some drawings he did. He was a selfless guy who loved this unique niche we carved out of the internet. Scott Bubar was one of the first people I met on the old Highlander's Shoppers Guide forum , along with Mac and some others. May he rest in peace. My sincere condolences to Scott's family and friends.

I had corresponded with Scott for over five years, he was my friend. I knew he was not well, but never expected this. In his last set of emails to me he joked he had left instructions with Jonathan to inform folks. I replied stuff and nonsense. He replied he wasn't going to forego the prospect of teasing the life out of me for another 10 years or so....

I will miss him so much...

My thoughts and prayers are with his family and Scott knowing me as he did would chuckle at the prayers bit. I don't very often, but for him and his loved ones I will....

Sikandur was always very engaging and thoughtful. His posts were always a great contribution. His knowledge, incredible abilities in web searching, his eagerness to share, and his insights--no one on the boards was his equal in these traits. He will definitely be missed.

I just read Mac's sad message. I spoke with Scott on a number of occassions and found him to be a very kind and knowledgeable gentleman. You will be missed Scott.

I have not tarried in long journeys over the surface of the sea, nor have I feared the threats of enemies or wild beasts, O strong leader, Maurice, go well good friend; I discern through such sweetness, the beauties of the country life, a safe return and nobility. Lift high the wine vessel. Such things are worthy of remembrance.

I hope that his passing was peaceful and without pain, and that the pain of his loss will pass swiftly for his family and friends.

It's a truly sad day. Scott was one of my favorite members of the online sword collecting community. His posts were always friendly, insightful and interesting. Much of what I have learned about swords and history over thae last five years I learned from Scott. We often corresponded in threads as our topics of interest were very similar. I will miss him.
Constant and true.

I've tried to post something wordy several times, but always got stuck. Best to keep it simple... Scott was a great guy, and his presence on the sword fora was always welcome. You will be missed, Sikandur.

I've found myself in the same predicament.
Rest well, Scott.
