Celebrating the Life of David Scott, Jr.
David Scott, Jr. was born on May 1, 1971, in Los Angeles, California to loving parents David Scott, Sr. (who preceded him in death) and Cathleen Holmes.
David attended Saturn Street Elementary School, Louis Pasteur Middle School, and Alexander Hamilton Senior High School in Los Angeles, California.
In 2003, David met Rocio Avalos and with that union, came his two precious princesses, Karysma Krysteen Scott-Avalos and Sophia Julianne Scott-Avalos.
David was an extraordinary and exceptional young man. Every stranger that he met came to love him for his stunning smile and electrifying personality. He was jovial, full of charm and charisma.
David had strong family values and was always there if you needed him. He cherished his family, particularly his girls, and enjoyed spending time with them.
David will be remembered for being a kind, fun loving, and nurturing young man who would stop at nothing to make sure you were happy. If he could make you smile then that's all that mattered.
David also enjoyed cooking, listening to music, watching television, and was quite the handyman. David was loved by his family, friends, and "folks" and will be greatly missed.
On December 14, 2016, David departed this life for eternity. David leaves to cherish his memory, his loving mother, Cathleen Holmes and Minister R. Charles Bennette of Los Angeles, California; Rocio Avalos, the mother of his two beautiful girls, Karysma Krysteen Scott-Avalos and Sophia Julianne Scott-Avalos of Los Angeles, California; one younger brother, Luchie Bennette of Compton, California; two sisters, Dezeree Holmes of Inglewood, California and Merelle Anthony and Jerome Anthony of Los Angeles, California; one aunt, Mary Hawkins ("mom") of Inglewood, California; one uncle, Ricky Holmes of Little Rock, Arkansas; two nieces, Faith Ivory and Sarah Bennette; six nephews, Dondre, Danny Jr., Roman, Joshua, Matthew, and Justin, his favorite cousins, Elizabeth Tutt and Oddra Strickland and a host of other relatives and friends.
My brother David was a good person and he loved his family with all of his heart. He made us happy and some days he made us mad, but when it comes down to it we still loved him with all of our hearts. He is happy now with peace, so I will miss you brother David in the blood of baby Jesus Christ as one.
I Love You Brother... Your Big Sister Dezeree
I love you forever
We are going to miss your early morning calls when you used to wish us good day before going to school. We will miss the times we would watch movies and you would make us popcorn and chip sandwiches. We will miss your late night calls when you used to wish us good night and send us kisses before going to bed. But most of all, we will miss YOU. You leave behind our broken hearts. We will always remember and love you daddy.
Love Your Princesses, Karysma & Sophia
You were not only my cousin, but my brother and my first best friend. I will miss your smile that would light up the room. Your kind heart that was always willing to help anyone in need. I will miss you telling your family that you loved them when saying goodbye or ending a phone call. I will miss you always saying, "hi, how are you doing" to a stranger just to make their day. I will always remember what you told me, "everyone needs to feel special" and if you could do that by saying hello, that's what you did. You had a heart of gold. You always made me smile. But most of all, you protected me. I will forever treasure all those precious memories we've shared. I love you David and you will truly be missed.
Love Your Cousin Oddra
To my first born, I will always love you!
First of all, I want to thank God for allowing me to share many precious memories with one of his loyal angels. I was truly blessed to have a brother who loved everyone he came
in contact with. David, thank you for those precious moments we've shared together. Until we meet again.
Love Your Sister Merelle
My Brother David Scott, Jr.
You had one of the biggest hearts I knew. Out of my 33 years on earth, I was fortunate to have a great big brother like you. You touched so many people in a great way. I'm pretty sure anyone reading this would have a special moment about you. I would like to share one. On my cousin's wedding day, you told me before you got there, you were going to try to drink 16 glasses of champagne. I told you that, "you were crazy." The next time I saw you later that night, you were a little off balanced. I asked you, "did you make it to 16?" and you said, "I have 4 more to go." David, you were a determined person. You were never weak.
Just like your sign, stubborn as a bull, but a heart of gold. I know I can't write a novel, but I guess life is like a slide show. I will always have the memories and the biggest one was you always saying, "I love you" to your family. I was fortunate enough to tell you that I loved you
one last time before you passed. I wanted to question why, but you can't question the Lord. When he calls you, it's your time. I just wanted to say, we love you David Scott, Jr. and you will truly be missed.
Love Your Brother Luchie
