David Scott

April 21, 1965 ~ September 13, 2022

David Scott, 57, of Vero Beach passed away peacefully at home on September 13th, 2022, following a brief illness.


He was born in Stannington, Northumberland, UK on April 21st, 1965, to Ronnie and Elli Ioanou. From the Northeast coast of England to the Southeast coast of Florida, he united two countries and families forever.


He was preceded in death by his father, Ronnie Scott Sr. He is survived by his wife, Tonya; children Katie Scott (Darren) of Sunderland, UK; twin sons James and Lee Scott, Ryan Wooley (Sammie Jo) all of Amble, UK; Jessi Traverso (Justin) of Vero Beach; grandchildren Effie Kate Armstrong, Millie Scott, Logan and Rio Scott, and Johnson and Cohen Traverso; brother Ronnie Scott (June), sister Kathleen Lunn (Derrick) both of Amble, UK; and numerous nieces and nephews.


David was a true “diamond in the ruff” who never met a stranger. After high school he spent many years as a commercial cod fisherman in the North Sea. He was an avid music lover and “Journey’s” biggest fan, a geography and history buff, enjoyed training dogs and had a passion for the elderly. His prized German Sheppard, Clipper, was one of his greatest loves. In 2013, David crossed the pond to start a new chapter of his life with Tonya. They had 10 years of love, laughter, and enjoying the simple things in life together.  Separated by distance but not in spirit, his skype conversations with his daughter Katie were the highlight of his day, and he was very much looking forward to meeting his newest granddaughter, Effie Kate in the coming year. He was “Grumpy” to his grandsons in Florida and every child in the neighborhood.


After relocating to Vero Beach in 2020, he became a part of the Sam’s Club family and loved his job, his co-workers, and his customers. The family would like to thank the management team for their kindness and support during this most difficult time. David was the kindest, most selfless soul that you would ever possibly meet. He was loved by many and will never be forgotten.


A celebration of his life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in David’s honor to Humans and Animals United Rescue, Brooksville, Florida.

Dad, what a remarkable man you really were. If only you knew just how much I love you, you have left a huge, huge hole in my heart that will never be repaired. I’m sat here waiting for the Skype tone to ring through my phone but it isn’t and the sad reality is, it won’t. When I was little we always watched the Tigger movie and when Tigger heads into the snow to look for his family he says to Pooh and everybody else ‘ta ta forever’, the other day I was so upset that this was our ta ta forever but it isn’t, it’s a ta ta for now because I know in another life I will see you again and I will be by your side.

There truly are no words to describe the heartache I’m feeling, you know you were literally the best Dad and it was a pleasure to call you my Dad. You’re my best friend, advice giver, my shoulder to cry on, Dad you literally are my everything. I will talk to Effie Kate about you every, single day and I will do that until my last breath. God only knows what i’d be without you.

I hope you’re resting easy up in heaven, I wish they had visiting times. The only part of this that makes it easy is that you’re reunited with Grandad Ronnie who I know you never, ever stopped grieving for. Keep shining down on us Dad.

I’ll look for signs everyday that you’re with me, i’ll never stop believing. I’m so, so lost without you, I miss you so much.

I love you with my whole heart and more.
Your Katie xxxxxxxxxx

Rest in peace Uncle David. You were a brilliant Dad and Grandad and you made a life for yourself that you cherished and were proud of. Walk beside Katie and Tonya and let them know you’re there as often as you can and be Effie-Kate’s Gaurdian Angel which I know you will already be. Lots of love, Kristina xx

We only knew each other for a few months, but you were so kind hearted and a pleasure to know and work with in the store. Your homeland English brogue was so refreshing and your love for your children was beautiful. Talking about the UK and the beautiful country side, your sons, daughter, grand daughter brought you such joy. You could see the way you spoke and your face would light up when you talked of them. Just know you will be truly missed by all. You are such a bright star that will shine over us all. I’m sure you and the Queen will have lots to talk about. Blessed to know you and prayers for your family and friends during this time. “Don’t stop believing” will play on in your memory. You have left an imprint on all you met. RIP

David, the man, the myth, the legend, I never thought I’d have to do anything like this, I never thought I could hurt as much as this after we lost dad, your passing has pulled every heart string that could be pulled and brought many emotions out at the same time, anger, laughing, smiling and crying, our bound will always be there no matter what and wherever you may be. I’ll never ever forget the times we had together during our lives with dad and aunt Margaret, some hard, some sad, happy and funny, always happy. Yes we had our differences but we were always there for each other but life is always full of ifs and buts, I’m truly sorry we never got to say goodbye to each other but will always look up to the stars at night and think of you, though you’ll never ever be far from my thoughts. Your boys James and Lee have done you and all our family proud, both fine young men and fathers, young Katie to, now a mother herself.Thank you Tonya for being David’s anchor and soulmate, only God knows what you must be going through at the moment, but I do know you’re strong, I never stopped loving you David, tears are falling as I’m writing this, so for now little brother fly high with the angels and be with dad, he’s waiting, I’ll keep my head up youngin, Ronnie.

He used to live across the road from me, and was always telling jokes if you passed him, always had time to speak to you ,had the time of day for anyone and would help anyone, he was a lovely man, and liked his music, rest in peace sooky, a character never to be forgotten x


September 16, 2022, 2:54 pm

David you were a great man who has left a wonderful legacy behind you, you were larger than life and lived it to the fullest. You gave me the pleasure of traveling all the way to your home in America for an amazing experience to see yourself and your beautiful family over their that I will never forget. You will be sadly missed and forever remembered by many. RIP

David was my neighbour in Amble for a few years before he jetted off over the pond. I always used to joke with my Mam (who I lived with at the time), that he spent more time at our house/in the garden than he did at his own house! He was just such a social being, he loved being around people (and driving me up the wall half the time, which I regularly told him haha). David, I hope you’re causing mayhem up there! Walk alongside your Katie, Tonya and everyone else you hold dear, and help give them the strength they need to get through each day. Lots of love xxx

Such a shock, you were full of life and laughter. A Neighbour in Ivy Street, always calling for a cuppa or shouting over the fence that the kettle was on. An amazing homemaker, you could turn your hand to most things. You loved your German Shepherd Bess and pups she had, You wanted to keep them all!
I enjoyed your stories from your childhood, always in some kind of bother The love for your family evident throughout your life.

David! My brother from another mother. We had 4 years of friendship and work together and boy did we have an adventure. Even after you moved to vero we never lost contact or love for our friendship. Wish I could of had one more drink one more laugh and one more joke even one more English diss on you. Your 7-11 family me Mona Rocky and rob will forever miss you and for me personally will forever lose an older brother. See you in heaven old buddy! I love you my friend my brother!

Uncle David, I have so many memories of you going right back to you taking me to school and looking after me when Mam and Dad were working, to watching cartoons with you at Granda’s and when I first started going out in the pubs. I will forever hear your voice saying “Jadey get your Uncle Davey a pint!” I don’t think you ever bought me a drink yet!! Dad said you were the only person who could go out with a fiver, get drunk and come home with the fiver!
You loved George Harrison’s My Sweet Lord and I always think of you and Christmas eves in the pub with you and dad when I hear it.
I’m so grateful that I got to see you in Florida and meet your beautiful family. I’m so proud of the life you made for yourself with Tonya, the love of your life. I’m just so sorry you didn’t have more time.
I have no doubt that you’re with Granda now watching over your loved ones and enjoying a pint in the Schooner in the sky.
My complete love and thoughts are with those you loved and who love you.
Until we meet again Uncle David, lots of love xxx

I knew you for several years when you were married to my sister and then became the proud dad of Katie-Lisa and stepdad of Ryan. No one could ever doubt the love you had for Katie and it was a desperately sad time for her when you went to America but she was able to visit you and your new family and saw for herself that you were happy in your new life. Rest in peace David x

david was a good and close friend i met while at 7-11, he would always refer to himself as the english bull by how much and how hard he worked ,we had our own dream team among friends there me,him kenny and rocky, it was always fun working with him and having our banter on stupid stuff like how he spoke “proper” english the queens english he would say and how i didnt speak/spell proper english and we would go back and forth on it. He would tell me his stories abt how he was a fisherman before he worked at 7-11 would were always interesting but aside from work as i said earlier he was a close friend he was also my drinking buddy ,he would invite over for a few beers on his days off and on mine and we would just talk abt work or other stuff but he opened his home to me and i was able to meet his wife tonya and his daughter katie when she was visiting at one time.The times i worked with him and hungout with him outside of work will always hold a special place in my heart . rest in peace David ,if u see a man up there that looks thats my father have many drinks with him until im able to with u again!

Dad, Mam bought me a lovely remembrance plaque and the poem fits so well I just wanted to share it with you.

We didn’t get to say goodbye,
You departed in the twinkling of an eye.
We didn’t get to say farewell,
The sadness my heart feels, no words can tell.

So many things were left unsaid,
So many tears, will I shed.
Without any warning, death came calling and in a heartbeat you were taken from me…

How cruel is death, how selfish indeed,
To take someone who meant so much to me.
How my heart aches, how my heart grieves,
For you are dearly lived and dearly missed.

Heaven bid you “come” my dearly loved one and in an instant you were gone..
Although I know, no one lives forever still I wish you could have stayed on for longer..
Indeed, there will never be a time to die or an easy way to say “goodbye”.

We’ll meet again, by Gods grace, you and I,
But until then, this is my sad goodbye.
We’ll meet again in the heavens above as we’re reunited with the ones we love.
Till then you’re unforgettable to me
I treasure my memories of you and always will.

I love you so much Dad, I miss you with all of my heart. It’s so, so heavy. I don’t know what i’ll ever do without you

Times like this do not cross my path do to the fact my mind and life are so occupied just enjoying the good times with you. Since day one you have welcomed me and showed me the way at 711…”the ladies love me pac” you would say lol you also welcomed me in to your home to have some beer or “tins” as you say. You were proud of being from England…i remember you almost sold me your passport for a carton of tabs and $20 bucks so i can visit london the stories you would tell me about your fisherman days always amazed me. I tried to teach you how to drive but you did not like the idea the thing you loved the most and had so much pride for was your daughter. I will surely miss you.what started as a friendship ended as a brother. May God wrap his arms around you I will always cherish the good times. Until we meet again mate

Jordan Scott - nephew

September 18, 2022, 7:07 pm

Now, then, Uncle David.

If memory serves correct, the last time we spoke was in September 2015 – we tried to arrange a rendezvous when I was in New York with Ian Harding, another Amble native of the same legendary calibre as yourself. Perhaps it is just as well that we didn’t get together, as we approached the trip as if it was a stag do in Benidorm – I’m not sure America could have handled the three of us on top form with a war chest full of dollars and enough patter to lay on with a trowel.

If I may, I’d like to start by offering remarks which will resonate with Ryan’s: as a youngster (and I’ll get to the adult assessment), and I can speak for the likes of Karl Taylor and Micky Connor here as well, we absolutely bought into the myths of you playing football with Ryan Giggs in the back square in between fighting tigers whilst serving your time with the Viet Cong. This gift – to capture and captivate the imagination of others in your own inimitable way – will endure and live as part of your own myth.

On that same point (and adulthood, this time), I was fondly recalling – upon hearing this tragic news the other day – August bank holiday 2013. Earlier in the year, Stevie Spears ate some Haribo when we were drinking in my kitchen; months later, you accosted Stevie in the Dock beer garden, got him in a [playful] headlock, then demanded that he, ‘get Jordan’s Uncle Davey a pint for eating Ronnie’s sweets.’ Stevie duly and unquestioningly obliged. On this recollection, Guy Thompson remarked of you: ‘What a bloke, though. One of those characters that people who haven’t witnessed personally wouldn’t immediately accept as a real person, that anecdote being a perfect example.’

How to describe you, then?

Maverick, mercurial, and I’d like to say magnificent, but Wayne and myself beat you too many times on FIFA in the ‘Kipper Cup’ of 2010 for you to quite make that level…

Some will say that ‘you could write a book about your Uncle Davey’ – a few volumes might not even scratch the surface.

But some words from Alexander Pope’s ‘Essay on Man’, which likewise tries to describe subjects which are beyond the reach of mere mortals (maybe more successfully). Pope writes that we, as a species, are ‘the glory, jest, and riddle’ of the world’ – you provided ample amounts of all three. From what dad has said, that resonates with what Granda Ronnie (who I can barely remember, but who was incontrovertibly the cornerstone of your upbringing) was often left thinking: from the sublime to the ridiculous, that lad.

If our lives are defined by our legacy as much as who we are (though the two are connected), then you can – and should – be immensely proud of your sons, James and Lee, as well as your daughter, Katie, and grand daughter, Effy. They have embarked on military careers, serving and progressing with distinction. They carry themselves with a maturity beyond their years, a disinterested sincerity beyond what is due, and a sense of humility which many would struggle to even feign if they were as accomplished. And through them, great grand children who will have to learn about their granda through the myths fuelled by the above.

If I can end on the type of humorous note that you would demand: Craig Kielty (who sends his deepest condolences) has said that you can keep the fiver you forced him to ‘lend’ you on the second May bank holiday in 2008. Get yourself a couple of pints and watch Man Utd return to the top.

As Del Boy would say, ‘Bonjour for now’


September 19, 2022, 11:04 pm

I’m still in shock…..I was out sick when this unfortunate event happened. I just can’t believe I’m not gonna see that beautiful smile amd face anymore
Everyday I looked forward to our chit chat. I learned so much from you. You were the sweetest, most respectful.polite, generous man I’ve ever met. They’ve got a special spot for you in heaven cause you’re a special Angel!! God has his reasons and we don’t understand but you more than deserve those golden wings so take them and fly high. Love you like a brother “Bro” . I’m gonna miss you sooo much. It’s not right now when I walk in your area. The doors open and I walk in ready to say ” What’s up Bro ” but you’re not there. It’s lonely without you. May you RIP David. Your Sam’s family truly will miss you..

What a true pleasure and privilege to have worked side by side with one of the absolute craziest men to walk the planet! You and your listening to JOURNEY above and beyond anyone!! Hahaha .
I couldn’t believe when I read the news on Facebook…I fell apart…this world has definitely lost a treasured soul, but it is obvious that the treasure wasn’t ours to keep.
You will be ever missed by so many. A true character. I just remembered, as I type this, you and singing karaoke at a 7-Eleven Christmas party….what a time!!
I’ll miss you friend.
Sleep easy.

Dad, I can’t believe its been a week. There’s so many questions i’d like to ask such as how is your day, what is it like up there, how are you, have you wound Grandad up yet. I miss you so much, so so much. I’ve not only lost my Dad but i’ve lost my best friend too, i’m not quite sure what to do. Anyways, my friend sent a card earlier and it had a verse in from Elephant Stone, one of your songs and it was really fitting.

Burst into heaven
Kiss in the cotton clouds
Arctic sheets and fields of wheat
I can’t stop coming down
Your shrunken head
Looking down on me above
Send me home like an elephant stone.

Tonight before bed I told Effie that Grumpy is watching down on her and to go and have dreams about you because you’re watching down on us all, I told her if she sees you in her dreams to tell you to come into mine because I just want to see you, hear your voice and have a cuddle. If only you knew just how much this hurts.

Goodnight Dad, love you xxxx

1 whole month today Dad.. 1 whole month since you fell asleep. Yesterday was a month since we last spoke, since I last saw you on Skype, since we last said we loved each other. It may have only been a month Dad but it feels like a whole lifetime. It has however been the hardest month of my life, obviously we all grow up knowing our parents are likely to go before us but I wasn’t ready yet. I just wasn’t ready to lose you or let you go

You’ve outdone yourself this time Dad, well and truely broken my heart. I really, really hope you knew just how much I loved you, I do Dad so much. I don’t even know what to say because the pain is just like no other. You really were one in a million Dad.

I have so many questions to ask you, I still feel like i’m waiting for you to ring but I know you won’t. There’s been so many times i’ve thought ‘I best ring Dad’ or ‘Dad will be ringing soon’ it’s just so hard without you.

I hope you’re resting well up there Dad, and I hope you’re watching over Effie, I know you loved her beyond words. We love you so so so bloody much Dad

Goodnight Daddy

Recent Reviews

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
