Death of "RipperTow" Scott Platzer

I am sad to report the passing of one of our own.

Scott Platzer, Special Forces veteran and long-time member here, passed away suddenly a few days ago.

Obit is here and GoFundMe for the family is here.

Sad news.

To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."
