Who is Scott? Newspaper said his name was Robert Reiter. Did he go by Scott or is this post misplaced SBlue?

I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!

No, not misplaced.

Vail Daily Obit:

Robert Scott Reiter, of Gypsum, was taken away from this world on Friday May 7 in a rafting accident on the Piedra River in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Scott was completing his river training to begin his third season as a raft guide in Durango.

He had just completed his sophomore year at Fort Lewis College in Durango, working towards his teaching certificate. He graduated from Red Canyon High School in 2008 and one of his dreams was to return to the school as a teacher some day.

Scott was an amazing, brilliant and caring young man who leaves behind many family and friends from around the world. He touched so many lives, we will sorely miss him.

Scott is survived by his mother, Holly Snyder; father Randall Reiter; sister Rachel Reiter; and many uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. Family and friends appreciate all your messages, thoughts, and prayers. Services will be determined shortly and information will be forthcoming.

here is the herald article with comments. if you leave one please make it positive.

Durango Herald News, FLC student killed in Archuleta County rafting accident

I think most of us know you can be the best boater in the world with the best crew and still die. even then the crew, family and friends still feels terrible. so celebrate every day. enjoy your friends and trips. remember those who have passed. and don't let anyone tell you there was a purpose for it. there is never a purpose.
