Scott Jiro Hirozawa ’83, February 12, 2012, in Decatur, Georgia. Scott came to Reed for a year in 1979 to study physics. Matt Giraud ’85 remembers Scott as a dormmate freshman year and as a housemate in Reed houses thereafter. “Scott had a great sense of humor. He lived in a pantry in one of our Reed houses for $55 per month, as I recall. Rigged up a series of pulleys to turn lights off and on and even start some kind of breakfast.” Scott went on to earn a BS from Oregon State University and an MS from the University of Oregon in computer science. He worked as a software engineer and was a bicyclist, outdoorsman, and photographer, focusing his lens on landscapes in California, Oregon, and elsewhere. Survivors include his parents, brother, and two sisters.

Appeared in Reed magazine: September 2012
