Shocking news came to us on Tuesday morning, November 8, 2022. The final touches were being placed on the latest sports article written by Lee Scripture for the Northumberland Echo when a call came in announcing that the writer, Lee Goodwin Scripture, had passed.

A statistician and dedicated sports reporter, Lee’s remarkable career spanned approximately 40 years, with him only missing two games. His final sports article was submitted just 24 hours before his death.
