Scott Thomas Zerphy, 26

December 23, 2015

Scott was called home to be with his Lord and Savior on December 23, 2015, at the University of Vermont Medical Center, Burlington, VT, following a snowboarding accident in Lake Placid, NY.

Scott was born in Lancaster, PA on June 4, 1989. A lifelong Lititz, PA resident, he graduated from Warwick High School and attended Shippensburg University. He had been employed by Clair Global since 2007. Along with his passion for snowboarding, Scott was an avid Philadelphia Flyers and Eagles fan and enjoyed playing fantasy football. He also truly enjoyed his work at Clair.

Scott is survived by his parents, Tom and Kim Zerphy of Lititz; brother Steve (wife Johenly) and newborn niece Leah of Germantown, MD; maternal grandmother Joyce Clark of Lancaster; paternal grandparents Tom and Terry Zerphy of Lancaster; and many, many loving aunts, uncles and cousins, whom we would like to thank for all of their love, care and prayers. He will be so greatly missed by all who knew him. Scott was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Richard “Dean” Clark.

We would also like to extend our sincere thanks to the caring staff and physicians at UVMC for their overwhelming compassion, support and expert care for Scott and our family. They are truly angels doing the Lord’s good work here on earth. Through their efforts, Scott was able to give the gifts of hope and life to many others this Christmas.

Scott’s family will receive friends from 6 to 7 pm on Wednesday, December 30, 2015, followed by the service at 7 pm with Pastor Joe Hyatt officiating, at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA. Wear your favorite Sports Team clothing in memory of Scott. Private interment in Landis Valley Mennonite Cemetery. Please omit flowers and consider a contribution to a charity of your choice.

To Scott’s Parents,
We are so praying for you guys, that the Lord has supported you this past week and going forward as you experience a year of first.   We lost our son almost 6 years now when he was sledding on a ski slope in Coudersport, by a TBI when he crashed into a ski lift tower.  We truly do understand your pain.   If yoiu ever want someone to talk to we will be there for you.  I’d like to share a Bible Verse that our son had in his snowboot that night, the Coronor gave it to us when we got to the hospital and it has helped to sustain us.  It is James 1;2-4 :
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sister, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything
We hjope this help you a bit too.  We have a good understanding of what you are going through.  Don’t hesitate to reach out to talk either now or anytime at all in the future!
Holly and Ron Miller

To the Zerphy family both immediate and extended,
Ken & I were shocked to read the news of Scott’s passing.  Please know that you will be in our prayers as our own loss of Cherie’s mom (June 29, 2015) is still fresh in our hearts. We will pray for your comfort and healing from this loss. Please make sure you allow yourself time, and lots of it, to grieve and allow God to carry you in the interim.
