Rumph remembered as role model, philanthropist

Posted

I am very sorry to learn of Scott Rumph's death. He was one of my oldest friends, a man who had the respect of all who knew him, and a wonderful role model for our younger generation.

I always admired his ability to "think outside the box" and develop new and better ways to get the job done. Generous to a fault, always considerate of others, a charitable contributor to multiple causes, he will always be remembered for these positive traits.

He has inspired me to pursue such a lifestyle, and I shall miss him greatly. I am proud that I had something to do with inspiring him to learn to fly some 60 years ago.
