Passing of Scott Wakefield

It is with great sadness that Morristown National Historical Park reports the recent sudden passing of long-time employee Scott Wakefield, who died at his home on Thursday, December 26th.

Scott had been a maintenance worker at Morristown NHP since 1991, and in 2012 received a “Star” award for his assistance to the park after an unusual October 2011 snowstorm. He was a great help after the storm in cleaning up the debris and many downed trees from park roads and grounds and his hard work enabled the park to reopen to the public more quickly.

Scott loved dogs and lived in park housing with his German shepherd, Nicky. Nicky has already been adopted by a park colleague and friend and remains a member of the Morristown NHP family.

A memorial service for Scott will be at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 4th, at Our Lady of Mercy Chapel, 70 Whippany Road, Whippany, New Jersey 07981.

Condolences can be sent to his sister and brother-in-law at: Wendy and Mike Steindl, c/o Morristown NHP, 30 Washington Place, Morristown, NJ 07960.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Trustco Bank, c/o Scott D. Wakefield, 131 Main Street, Greenwich NY 12834.
