BOARDMAN, Ohio – Scott A. Burin, 61, passed away unexpectedly Friday evening, November 3, 2017, at his home.
Scott was born October 19, 1956, in Berea, a son of Andrew and Marjorie Kibler Burin and came to the Youngstown area with his family as a child.
He was a 1975 graduate of Liberty High School, where he was senior class president and a three-year letterman in football, basketball and baseball. In 2004, Scott was inducted into the Liberty High School Hall of Fame. Mr. Burin graduated in 1979 from the University of Miami, Florida, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications. He was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and also played Division I baseball for the Hurricanes. A year later, in 1980, Scott earned a master’s degree in broadcast law, also from the University of Miami.
From 1982-1997, Scott worked locally for WHOT Radio, where he was a radio marketing master and a certified radio marketing consultant. He subsequently became an owner, operator and acting general manager of International Towers in downtown Youngstown until the late 2000s and he currently was a realtor with Century 21 HomeStar Realty.
Mr. Burin was a member of the Republican Party and served as precinct committeeman for 32 years.
He was very proud of the Boardman community and spent countless hours volunteering to keep the township beautiful.
Courageous and self-motivated, Scott will always be remembered as a thoughtful, compassionate and inspirational individual who took great pride in his work and who was always there for his family and available to help those in need.
