Scott P. Klurfeld ’74

Published in Mar. 7, 2001, issue

Scott died on Mar. 18, 2000, as a result of an auto accident that also claimed his wife, Janis. Scott and Janis were taking their 14-year-old son, Zachary, and a friend to a Saturday morning soccer game. Miraculously, both boys survived the accident.

Scott came to Princeton from Kennedy H.S. in Plainview, N.Y., where he played lacrosse and soccer and was class valedictorian. At Princeton, Scott played lacrosse and was a member of Charter Club. He majored in economics, graduated magna cum laude, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.

After graduating from Harvard law school in 1977, Scott joined the legal staff of the FTC in Washington, DC. When he died, Scott was a partner specializing in the energy industry at the firm of Swidler Berlin Shereff Friedman.

Scott was a committed husband and father who was wholeheartedly devoted to his family. He maintained his close ties to Princeton over the years, and was active in Princeton alumni activities, including the schools committee, fundraising for our 25th reunion, and the Friends of Princeton Lacrosse. Scott's friends and family will always remember his rare combination of brilliance, humor, compassion, and humility. Scott is survived by his children, Zachary and Mollie, his parents, Samuel and Ruth Klurfeld, and his brother, Larry '70. Our class extends its deepest sympathy to the entire family.
