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.

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.
