April 29, 1959 ~ July 11, 2019
We are saddened to announce that Scott E. Schifer, 60, passed away on July 11, 2019 while surrounded by his family. He had waged a valiant battle against lung cancer, to which he finally succumbed after almost three years.
Scott was born and lived in the Los Angeles area all his life. He grew up traveling the U. S. and developed a love of trains. Not long after graduating high school, he started working as technician at Hughes Aircraft (now known as Raytheon) while working his way through school to earn his E.E. degree. He was proud of his work and his hard work earned him a lot of respect in the company. He retired after 35 years and had been lead engineer on many classified projects.
His hobbies included trains, RC Planes, riding his motorcycle, and playing his guitars. He was a long time member of the Belmont Shore Model Railroad Club where he could share his love of trains with others. He was also a Ham Radio operator and part of the Torrance Amateur Radio Association (TARA). Scott finally met the love of his life, Ann, in 2003 and they were married in 2009.
Scott leaves behind his father Arden Schifer, wife Ann Palik, brother Marc Schifer, sister Peri Hoke and her husband Kyle Hoke, Art Palik (brother-in-law), Ted and Jennifer (Burdick) Palik (brother and sister-in-law), and Susan Y. Palik (mother-in-law) as well as aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was predeceased by his mother, Amy Schifer (2008).
He will be greatly missed by family, friends, and the clubs/groups he belonged to.
