Mr. Scott D. Cliborn a resident of Dracut, died unexpectedly, Friday, September 14th, aged 35 years.
Born in Lowell, on August 11, 1972, the son of Gary L. and Mary (Lee) Cliborn. Scott received his education in the Dracut School system and was a graduate of Dracut High School with the Class of 1990.

He attended Syracuse University where he majored in music, played in the band, the Wind Ensemble, and Hendricks Chapel Choir. Music was his passion.

Scott was a member of the Centraville United Methodist Church. He taught Vacation Bible Study and was a member of the adult choir until recently. He was also a past member of the Polish-American Band.
Scott was an avid model railroader and belonged to the Northeast N’Trak Club. and the Metro West “O” Scale Club.
Though perhaps not familiar to many live steamers, Scott was a fixture around various prototype railroads, live steam meets and other New England model railroad clubs and events throughout the years (even after confinement to a wheelchair he was especially active in N and O scales) — and many folks have been blessed to know him, his humility, and his inspirational desire to remain active in all facets of life.
Scott is survived by his parents, a sister, Susan Craib of West Palm Beach, Fla. and a nephew Dylan Craib also of West Palm Beach, Fla., an Aunt Barbara Cliborn of Kansas, and several cousins. He was the brother of the late Roy William Cliborn. He will be sadly missed by many dear friends.
