Shorewood grad dies in California train accident

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Former Shoreline resident and Shorewood '97 grad Phillip Scholz was killed in a CalTrain accident Monday, January 20, 2014 in Santa Clara, California. Due to it being a holiday there were few witnesses but the local Sheriff's Department told his family there were reports and video that show he was trying to help a man who was already on the tracks. That man has serious injuries but is expected to survive.

Phil and his family lived in Shoreline many years and were active in the community and schools.  His parents, Fritz and Roberta, now live in Edmonds. His surviving brother, Christian, lives in the Bay area with a wife and young daughter. Phil was married to Emily Scholz and they had no children. Phil was a Senior Marketing Manager at NVIDIA in Santa Clara, CA.
