In Memory Of Scott

Scott Giovino was born in Plano, Texas on October 8, 1982 and passed away on March 7, 2020.

Scotty cherished his relationships with his mom, his sister Alicia, brother-in-law Dave, his twin nephews, and his many aunts and uncles, especially his Aunt Lisa and Aunt Deanna. From the time Scott was born, he was lovingly adored by his family. Although "Scott" isn't a culturally-based name, he grew into his name and would come to be referred to not only as Scott, but also as Scotty to his close family members and friends.

The bond Scotty and his mother Felicia shared was immeasurable. She was his greatest love. There isn't anything she wouldn't do for her son. She was all accepting of Scott and embraced his identity. She had PRIDE in her son. She nurtured and loved him, and thoroughly enjoyed the laughs and love they shared, that only a mother and son could. There was never a dull moment within the household. It was a busy place on Ramsdell.

Scotty was an amazing athlete throughout his younger years and into adulthood. He played little league baseball at Hertel North Park for the Regals. He played hockey for four years and became a referee because he mastered hockey and became a professional. Scott loved attending St. Margaret's and made life-long friends there whom he continued to communicate with for years.

Scott attained his college degree from Bryant & Stratton. He was a whiz with math. He delved into the accounting industry, sales, banking, and general management. He was a leader in his field and he excelled like a BOSS. Scott made countless friends in all of his work and he spent years enjoying these friendships. Scott was a dream coworker and nurtured the people around him to be confident, a better employee, and to be their best.

Scott's home was a judgement-free zone and he transferred this ideal whenever he interacted with others. He has so many friends, literally countless. He nurtured his

relationships, tended to others, and was a true soul friend to others from all points of life. Scott stood by the underdog and was a voice for others who were weak. He shared his compassion for love and life, and always with his bright, effervescent smile that lit up the room. Scott's laugh was contagious because it reflected his beautiful soul that exuded from inside. Scott was the life of the party.

Scott became a leader in the LGBTQ community. He was accepted and accepting of others. He was an amazing pageant promoter of Queen City Promotions. He was a pillar in the community, promoting pageants and pride. Scott was so proud of his pageant participants and was an honorary judge in pageants across the region. He was respected in the community he loved, and his community became his second family.

Scott was very protective of his little sister, as she was of him. They shared so many memories, friends, and life experiences. They stuck together side by side through all of life's ups and downs, their worst days, and their best days. They snuck into the Italian Festival after dark when the festival was closed. They attended each other's sporting events and family functions, and shared a love for music and dance. They shared the experience of her wedding and the brother-in-law she gave him, Dave Ennis, the brother he never had, as well as his nephews, Mason and Mateo, whom he simply adored. Scott will be greatly missed by her.

Whether times were tough for Scott, he somehow still wanted to hear, listen, and hug others who were going through their toughest times. He was always there to lift you up when you needed him the most. He will always be appreciated.

The pain we feel with Scott's passing weighs heavy on our hearts. There will forever be an empty spot without Scott here on this Earth. We will cherish our memories of him, to hear that laugh and to see that smile. We will know Scott danced his way into paradise and into eternal joy and life. Please, in memory of Scott, just remember life is short and at times isn't fair. It's important to overcome obstacles and enjoy life, both the good and the bad.
