Obituary for Lonnie Scott Walling

On the morning of May 18, 2019, Lonnie Scott Walling of Falling Waters passed away at age 69, after a long struggle with respiratory illness.

Scott was born to Bob and Bobbie Walling on May 1, 1950, in Coronado, California. He served in the Navy and worked on the Trans-Alaska Pipeline in the mid-70’s, among various other jobs. Scott’s last position, before he retired in April 2016, was as a senior programmer of flight software for Microtel-LLC, a subcontractor at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. On April 19, 1994, he married Beverly Ornberg on the top deck of a cruise ship off the western coast of Mexico.

Scott was an avid reader, always taking his beloved Kindle wherever he went. He was also passionate about traveling, especially cruising, live theater, and spending time with his many friends. Scott was loved by everyone who met him, as he always smiled and had kind words for others, with his governing philosophy being, “It doesn’t cost anything to be nice to people.”

Scott was preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Bobbie Walling, and his brother, Robi Walling. He is survived by his wife, Beverly; his sister, Marie Walling Thompson; his step-mother, Betty Walling, and step-brothers, Alan and Rusty Brown; his son, Joseph Lee and grandson, Jackson; his step-daughter, Jessica Ruddle, and her husband, James; his nephew, David Walling; and numerous sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, and cousins.

Memorial arrangements are pending. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Olney Theatre Center in Olney, Maryland.

I knew Scott from working on flight software for spacecraft managed by Goddard Space Flight Center. He was a really bright guy and knew how to get his points across - not much beating around the bush with him! His contributions live on today in software onboard spacecraft in flight, and software being readied for spacecraft yet to be launched.

My condolences to Scott's family and fellow friends...he passed away too young, and too soon to enjoy as much of his retirement as he deserved to.
Scott was a pleasure to work with, both professionally and personally. I'll always fondly remember our flight software team's success for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. Here's a group photo of some of us, taken a few months after LRO launched in June 2009:

My sincere sympathy to Scott’s Family at this most difficult time.
I had worked very closely with Scott at GSFC, few months shared the same office area with Scott. He was such a GREAT CO-WORKER who was always there to help. His kindness and smile on his face always always touched our hearts. He was loved by everyone who worked with him. I feel that I have lost a very good friend as well as a great fellow co-worker. You may rest in peace Scott. Love you!
