Scott Waybrant, 64, of Gettysburg, died suddenly on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, while enjoying a beautiful day on the golf course with friends and family.
Born January 24, 1957, in Lancaster, Pa., he was the son of the late Jack F. and Betty J. (Smith) Waybrant. Scott leaves behind his beloved wife and soulmate, Dr. Lisa C. Wolkind.
He was a 1974 graduate of Gettysburg High School. Following high school he served in the United States Air Force and then studied business at UC San Bernadino, spending all of his free time mastering volleyball.
After returning to Gettysburg, he joined J.F Waybrant and sons, the family business. He later joined Shipley Energy before embarking on his new career as a licensed Real Estate Agent with Sites Realty in Gettysburg.
Throughout his life, Scott enjoyed and excelled at many pursuits in the outdoors including, fishing, both bow and rifle hunting, golfing, and working out at the local YWCA. One of his greatest loves was watching and coaching his daughters in volleyball.

In addition, he was adored by Lisa’s parents, Rita and Ray Wolkind, as well as her sisters, Eve Wolkind Wasserman and Andrea Develin and their families.
A little known fact about Scott is that he was also a fantastic “cat daddy” to furry kids, Bugsy Boomer and GoGo.
