  4. E-mail message, Ethan Scherer to RCJ, 1 May 2021, Dear Eric, Robert, and Nancy -

    I had written this already, but due to some internal strife among my siblings, I had held off until now. However, Eric's call this AM prompted me to send this out now. I apologize

    I am sad to report that on Wednesday night my dad passed away. I could tell over the phone in January that things were getting worse. We successfully convinced him to move into our house last month, but his health took another steep change about a week into his time here and he needed to be hospitalized shortly thereafter. In life, my dad had strong conviction on the moral and right path and fought with every inch of his being for these causes. The end was not dissimilar where he fought tooth and nail for what he believed. In the closing days and hours, I was able to feed him ice chips on demand and briefly hold him when he became unsettled. Jonathan, Susannah, Jill, and I were able to say good-bye before he passed.

    While I felt it was too early for him to die, my dad lived a full life. He was married to my mother for over 50 years, watched all his children grow-up and become successful human beings, and met his three grandchildren. My dad loved science from a young age. He won the New Jersey state science fair and went on to the national competition. He did extensive primary research using historical documents in the Princeton library on the Lenape tribe of New Jersey. He helped work on building technology in the 60s to get rockets into space and later in submarines to keep our country safe. He passed that love for science onto his children and grandchildren. I have fond memories of exploring the stars with him and debating how much we can rely upon mathematics and logic in the context of Kurt Godel incompleteness theorems. Beyond science my dad had a cutting sense of humor. He loved play on words and “bad” puns. It was always funny listening to Monty Python sketches or watching reruns of “Are You Being Served?” with him.

    His decline was so rapid and surprising, and I was deeply saddened by his passing, but also knew he would want me to push forward. My dad wished to be cremated so we have a little time before we need to plan a formal ceremony. I will keep you posted, but we’re thinking that we’ll do something related to the sea since he always admired the Vikings’ sailing skill as well as their burial traditions.

    Love,

    Ethan
