Greg Threet had for several years been a Cub Scout leader in Pack 363 in Lexington. He had three children, including an infant daughter.
Stephanie Pfanstiel, whose son Simon was in Threet's Webelos I pack, said he was an excellent role model for boys.
"He was a good man. He was a Christian man," she said. "He was someone I had no problem with Simon looking up to."
