In the death notices in today’s Washington Post, see “Funger” - William Scott Funger (age 54) of Potomac, MD. His notice includes this: ”Scott’s passion for collecting rare coins and numismatics began as a young boy and continued throughout his life. His collections were sold at major auctions throughout the US but he mostly loved finding small collectors and talking with them about coins….” The notice mentions his survivors and provides the name of his Labrador first, before his wife and kids. My kind of guy. I never met him but I wonder if any E-Sylum readers knew him?
I don't believe I've crossed paths with Funger. Does anyone have more information about him? Which auctions were his coins sold in?
