  2. So much to remember. Learned to ride a motorcycle with Scotty, got hit by lightening when I went camping with Scotty, countless beach trips, riding bikes in the neighborhood, jumping fire (only once, got in trouble for that one), lots of great memories… peace brother

    • Scotty you will be missed Knott’s! Selling cars with you was a lifetime of great memories! Watching you in action you were one of a kind your famous one liners customers couldn’t say No to you you were a kind soul I’m gonna miss you and I will never forget are trip to Arizona for the Subaru ride and drive we had a sad time your brother Mikey D.

  3. candle 6Scotty was my Great friend and like a brother to me. We worked together and sold a lot of cars. He was so good at selling. We had so many fun times together, many trips together and laughs all along the way. Scotty you will never be forgotten. I will miss you brother.

  4. candle 8Auntie Brenda loves you Scotty .Had great fun when you came to San Jose to visit when you were young. Going to miss your beautiful smile. Love forever.

    • Where to even begin? So many great memories. The all nighters playing sega hockey. Playing hockey in the Ralph’s parking lot at 3am before it was time to deliver papers. Playing fantasy hockey. All the clubs we went to in Hollywood and manhattan beach, hermosa beach, all over the place. The times at the house with the white carpet. We tore that house up but without going into detail we had some great times there. All the other countless great days we spent together never really appreciating them then like I do now. It’s often I think about those days and miss them. It kills me to know you’re gone and not coming back. You were are good, kind and sensitive person. You will be missed more than I think you knew.

    • Hey Scott, the memories I have of you are the good ole days of Hockey at Adams park in Redondo Beach. You were so good and so was your team of You, brother Mark, Chris Cirillo & Tracy Kikawa! I will always remember that sweet and very accurate snap shot inti the lower stick side corner always beating the goaltender! Great Hockey player and a Great Person! It was an honor and a privilege to have had the chance to play against you and your team! You guys were the team
      to beat. Thank u Scotty for all the Hockey Memories bud! I will never forget them ☺!

  7. candle 8Dear Scotty. I’m so sorry we did not realize what was going on. I pray you found peace and are free of pain. You were such a sweet kid and we spent so many holidays as a family together which we will always cherish. Every Christ.mas you always found me to give me a hug mo matter how crowded. We love you. Rest in peace in heaven.

  8. candle 4I am going to miss you my young brother and I know that your listening to Oasis and Boogie Boarding in heaven

  9. candle 4Scotty- I finally mustered up the courage to visit your parents and brother yesterday, so many intense memories. We had so much fun when we were young, we were full of energy, always working on our hockey and body boarding game. Making that hockey goal from 2×4 lumber was one big memory that I have, that thing weighed a ton, we did our best to transport that behemoth to and from your house (hockey HQ), don’t think it made very many trips before it fell apart from lugging it all around. We used to dawn patrol Manhattan pier, 30th street mid December, it was so dang cold, slipping into cold, wet wet-suits rather then being tucked away at home warm in our beds we charged! We were at the Ice rink every weekend, kept us out of trouble, we loved to skate, you were a natural and I learned so much from skating with you. I know you loved to laugh, we have a similar sense of humor. I’m pretty sure you’re up there scoring the winning goal, riding the biggest wave and having the biggest laughs with the others. Scott I’m going to miss you my dear friend you made my childhood so memorable and I cannot thank you enough for being my best friend and brother. I love you and you will forever be close to my heart. Love, Chris Cirillo

  10. candle 4To our dear friend Scotty – while we only had the pleasure of knowing you for a short time, you quickly became a member of our family. We will always treasure certain memories: super bowl parties, checking out your dance moves at Mona’s 60th, taco tuesdays, you taking all of Vern’s money at a poker game and of course the walks to 7-11. Our hearts are broken knowing your life was cut way too short. It will take all of our greatest strengths to move forward without you here with us. We love you. Mona and Vern.

  11. Dear Scotty, it’s been over 30 years since I last saw you. Memories of you skating with those long strides at Bay Harbor with Cirillo and Flynn. You guys had a great line. Hard to believe it’s been that long since we last skated together and competed. Those are lasting memories I will never forget. Rest In Peace, Bay Harbor brother. Love, Bibi

    • candle 2Hello my sweet Scotty. Your departure time is slowly moving along.My feelings of sorrow aren’t subsiding. I find myself drifting from current happenings and shift my focus to memories of you, sometimes emotional.
      These are welcome feelings by me. I have so many memories…and thoroughly enjoy reliving them. Continue watching down on us, your family, until we are all reunited again in Heaven
      Love you forever…mom & dad

  12. candle 7Precious Scotty, you were always a sweet and gentle soul. We’ll miss your beautiful smile and the hugs every time we met. May you find peace in our Lord’s loving arms.

    • Scotty my many memories of you are flooding me…I’m so happy for all of them…from your youth and into your adulthood…you are the essence of careing , love, appreciation , honor, integrity, shareing, and so many more adulations that are available. We greet you daily and also nightly. We miss you.
      Your loving parents..Mom and Dad

      • candle 2My sweet Scotty..I reflected today about our conversations concerning your 3D modeling career. You always commented on your clients requests for your services. How they sometimes gave you a cardboard pattern or a sketch on paper of their proposed and hopeful project, and how they were always negotiating with you for a cheaper price. Exclusive in our conversations you would ask me for my input. You trusted me due to my 30+ years in aircraft tooling and model making. I always referred to my years of experience as “Old World Technology”..and you always had a chuckle/ laugh at that reference.
        We had some great times talking about your 3D CAD career. You amazed me with your skill..,
        Love You Scotty
        Until we are together again “Rest In Peace”

  15. candle 1My Dear friend Scotty boy! I remembered when we first met in ‘94 you were working in Hermosa Beach at a clothing store called Section 8. We clicked and we never looked back. Always forward with out a care in our twenties. I remembered you worked for CompUSA computer store and you needed help with your truck as you locked your keys inside. I walked in and saw you. You told the “oh hey, the trucks outside. And I looked at him and dangled his truck keys to him. He lit up and said “No way big fella! That’s famous! And we laughed out loud! I had already saw his truck and opened the truck and found his keys before he could tell me where his car was. Ha! We had lots of amazing fun first times together exploring our youthful days! You also introduced me a band from UK – OASIS. Another common shared interest as we would laugh and talk about the bands shinannigains and lyrics! There were many great songs but the album that defined us back then was Definitely Maybe and Morning Glory. Always rocking out to our favorite tunes! When you lived in Miami and we would talk for hours on the phone and laugh and remember good memories of out days in Hollywood. You always had a good memory and would remind me of stories I didn’t even know happened but then you’d remind me of a great legendary story. We had so many and you knew them all. And recently a few years back. You liked that I got more into hockey as we talked And text about the sport and players as we watched the game over the phone sometimes. I will always love you and remember you, my dear friend and cherish all our great times and memories! You will always be missed my brother! Thank you for being in my life Scotty! I love you!

  20. candle 4Scotty, I am so luck to have known you and to call you my friend and my brother. We met while working together at CompUSA and once we became friends there was no turning back. Together we sold computers and cars and spent many nights trying to out shine the stars in Hollywood. We shared a love of laughter and the gift of gab and I feel lucky to have shared so many great times with you. You were always kind, thoughtful and generous a person anyone would be lucky to call a friend. I am glad we got out for a bike ride with my family. They were all excited to meet the man that was a part of so many of my stories and you lived up to their high expectations.

Throughout the years I have always admired how you carried yourself through life and it’s challenges thrown at you. I especially enjoyed watching you carry on an in-depth conversation about hockey even though I am a basketball fanatic it always amazed me at your enthusiasm. But I will never forget our special moment we had together just the two of us when we went back to school at Cerritos College a few years back. I didn’t have the chance to go to school with you as kids but this run at it was very special to me and I remember all the Composite courses and other courses that we took together for two years it was amazing picking your brain it seemed to come easy to you and I admired your wisdom and I will cherish those moments we spent studying together and just the simple brother bond that we shared.The conversations that we hard driving back and forth four days a week for two years and even in taking summer courses… I am really going to miss you my brother and miss you calling me “Older Brother”🏒 And I know you are up there in heaven shining down on us with a big ole spotlight and down here disguising yourself as a beautiful colorful butterfly🦋 following me around the Beach Cities!!….Well my beautiful intelligent young soul brother I want you to know that I respect you and miss you dearly Shine On Scotty Boy and rest your Soul… I Love and Miss You…..

  21. candle 7Scott, I remember the night you were born. I stayed with your older brother and sister when your parents went to the hospital for your birth. I held you in my arms and watched you grow through the various stages of your life. There were a lot of good times and I know you struggled at times. I’m so sorry for that.
    I admired your gentle way and the love you had for your parents, siblings, uncles, aunts, grandparents, nieces and nephews. You were so creative, I was amazed by your CAD drawings. It was obvious that it gave you a lot pleasure. We will miss you so much. I hope you’ve found the peace you deserve. Love you always – Uncle Denny

  23. candle 6Scotty,
    As I am writing this, I am remembering the trips Uncle & I made and stayed with your parents. Even though you were busy working in your room, you always came out to spend time with us. Those memories will stay in our hearts forever. You would join us in the card games or just talk story with us. Though you are not here in person, your spirit lives on within us. You are an Angel now looking down on us. Rest in peace Scotty and remember we will always love you.
    Love you forever…Aunty & Uncle

  24. candle 4Scotty- Thank you for caring so much! Your advice was always helpful for me. I wish I could’ve helped you, I wish I knew how much pain you were in. I pray that you’re pain-free now and at peace. Rest in love, Scotty – you will not be forgotten.

  25. candle 6Dearest Scotty,
    Although we may not have had many times together, I will treasure the moments we were able to spend with you. Our family trips to Disneyland always led to a stopover to spend time with you, your parents and brothers. Those memories forever be with us. I loved the time you spent with Mason and making him feel so special. It broke my heart when I had to tell Mason that you were now in heaven. The first thing he asked was why did Scotty have to go to heaven and now when we go to Disneyland, we won’t be able to see him. I then explained to him that Scotty will always be with us in our hearts. Though your time on earth was short, we will remember & treasure all the special times we spent with you. You will always be remembered, no matter what. Your presence, love and kindness, will forever be with us. Rest for now until we meet again.
    We love and miss you so much Scotty!!!
    Denise, Mason & Lani

    • candle 6My sweet Scotty..You suffered so much over the past 3 years. I will focus on your arthritis and also on the persistent upper shoulder Pain. Your doctor tried everything but you also guided him with your explanation of your pain.The pain that would come on and last for an hour at a time…the doctor tried injections & ointments . You even had to go to emergency room for some relief…I don’t understand Why they couldn’t figure it out.You didn’t deserve to be subjected to constant pain…You Are a special person my Scotty….we will never understand God’s ways….I had a few pills to help relieve your shoulder pain(for a few hours) and am happy it was some temporary help.
      I would say from time to time as you started your day..”another day in paradise “….this was a saying that made us reflect on our earthly daily dealings that are tossed at us!
      We would take our walks.and talk…I now wish we took more…But I cherish every walk we did take and all the great conversations we had..
      Scotty I’ll say goodby for now…until we see you again in Heaven
      Love You
      Mom & Dad
