Moline, Ill.– Russ Scott, former managing editor of The Dispatch, died Saturday at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. He was 69 years old.
Mr. Scott, of East Moline, was managing editor for 25 years before retiring from The Dispatch in 2007. He prided himself on being down to earth and approachable. In a December 2007 story on his retirement, he said the best part of the job was the people, including the readers.
