Scott Michael Parsons, “Scotty”, led a vibrant life and passed away peacefully in his home at 63 years old. He was surrounded by his family of friends, who were all there supporting him until the very end. He was one of those rare people that leave a lasting impression on other's lives, and he will forever be missed.
Scott remained a caring, outgoing, bighearted, sarcastic, and funny person his entire life. He lived a full life of adventures and travels. Scott loved taking his boat out to go fishing, or his Corvettes for a spin. He was fearless and fun, loving and kind. He enjoyed playing poker and pool, both for fun and competitively at the Boat House and other locations. He loved to travel, frequently visiting some of his favorite locations in Hawaii, Las Vegas, and Florida. He drove the coast of California many times. He loved watching sports including hockey, football, and auto racing.
When Scott was 22 years old, he was in a tragic accident, falling from staging while working construction and broke his back. He would spend the next 41 years of his life paralyzed from the waist down. Scott embraced his new way of life, and never let it slow him down. His great circle of friends, who were always by his side, included Nancy Mucci, Tracey Fay, Patrick Pilcher, Bud Losh, Danny Kearns, William “Otis” Summering, Joe “Fins” Maraganus, Sue Garvey, Michael Spinelli, Derek Schmitke, Heidi Sassin, Michael Castellucci, and many others.
We are all grateful to have him as a friend and will forever hold his memory close to our hearts.
Scott was born in Melrose, one of 3 children of Robert and Barbara Parsons and was a graduate of Tewksbury High School. He is also survived by his brother Robert Parsons of Lowell and Diane Parsons of Texas.
There will be a Celebration of Life to honor Scott’s memory at a future date.
