V. Scott's Story
Scott Follansbee, 77, passed away on Monday, October 30, 2017 surrounded by his family. He was a resident of Seabrook, N.H. and former longtime resident of North Andover.
Scott was born in Springfield, on September 8, 1940 to Verne S. Follansbee and Marjorie F. Fairbanks. He was a graduate of Westwood High School and Suffolk University. Shortly after completing his education he began his successful real estate development career. Scott was a well-known and respected builder and developer creating projects primarily in the Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire. He enjoyed the challenge of designing and developing neighborhoods. Scott also created and developed many commercial projects including strip malls, office complexes and industrial spaces throughout the region. He was proud of the many great relationships he established with his clients and subcontractors.
Scott loved adventure! He enjoyed traveling the world and learning about the cultures of the many places he visited; Alaska, Europe, Vietnam, New Zealand, Mexico, the Philippines, Africa and the Caribbean. Scott was an accomplished sailor and later found his true love in flying, having earned his twin engine pilot’s license. These activities created an endless source of stories and provided much laughter.
Ever generous with his time and resources, Scott was always available to help a friend or family member in need.
Scott is survived by his two sons, Geoffrey and Gregory Follansbee; his sister, Gail Frey and her husband Ned; his niece, Allison Shelton and her husband, Brandon, and their children, Declan and Cillian and nephew, Ned Frey and his wife, Abby, and their children Ben and Charley. He is also survived by many friends, especially dear friend and business partner Deborah Picard and her husband Henry and their daughter, Carol Anne of North Andover.
The family would like to thank Dr. Alice Shaw, Dr. Jessica Lin and the staff at Mass General Hospital, Care Dimensions Hospice and Freedom Home Care for the wonderful care that Scott received.
