Neal S. “Scott” Sobocinski
April 9, 1975 - March 6, 2021
Neal S. “Scott” Sobocinski, age 45, of Bear, DE passed away on Saturday, March 6, 2021 at home.
Scott was a Delaware native, born in Wilmington, DE on April 9, 1975, and the son of Neal J. and Carolyn Jane (Williams) Sobocinski. He graduated from William Penn High School in 1994. Scott was a lifelong Philadelphia sports fan and was a walking encyclopedia of Philadelphia Phillies facts. When he wasn’t working at Amazon, he could often be found attending sports events or watching the Philadelphia Phillies, Eagles, NASCAR races or WWE matches. His passion for sports started early in his life and he was selected to serve as the first bat boy for the Wilmington Blue Rocks. Scott loved animals including his dogs Wally and Jock, who preceded him, and his new puppies Rosie and Heidi. Scott was also a calming presence to his Aunt Anne and Uncle Tim’s horses, Rubberband and Buckeye.
Scott is survived by his parents, Neal and Carolyn Sobocinski; sister, Amy S. Romagnoli (Paul) of Bear; niece, Amelia; aunt, Mary Anne Brennan; and uncle, Tim Kauffroath of Mechanicsburg, PA.
All services will be held privately.
Scott is greatly missed and made a lasting impact on many people he met and knew throughout his life. To honor his love of animals, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Scott’s memory to the Delaware Humane Association, 701 A Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.
