Scott David Sumner of Goshen passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2021. He was 55 years old.

He was predeceased by his parents, Robert and Elizabeth, and is survived by his siblings June Moran (Darren), Thomas, James (Jenny), Karen Brandt (Stephen), and a sextet of nieces and nephews: Robert, Michelle, Jonathan, Elizabeth, Mackenzie and Peter. He is deeply missed by his family, friends and those who knew him.

Born in New York City on May 8, 1966, Scott grew up in both Paterson, N.J., and Warwick, N.Y. In all, Scott was a resident of Orange County for more than 35 years, living in both Chester and Goshen working for PDJ Components and area businesses in various capacities.

Known for his quiet demeanor, good nature and gentle spirit, Scott enjoyed seeing his family during the Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays where he would feast on home-cooked meals.

He was particularly fond of racing and motorsports, especially NASCAR, and kept a collection of racing and other sports-related memorabilia.

Never one to ask for assistance or accept a handout from others, Scott was hard-working and self-reliant.

Flowers are gratefully declined; however, a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project in his name is appreciated.

Memorial Visitation was held Sept. 22 at the Donovan Funeral Home, 82 S. Church St., Goshen.

A Memorial Mass was held the following day at St. Bonaventure Church in Paterson, N.J. A Memorial Mass also will be held on Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Cathedral Basilica of St Augustine in St. Augustine, Fla.
