Raymond "Scott" Spinozzi, 67

Raymond “Scott” Spinozzi, 67, passed away on Thursday, August 18, 2022. Born in Norristown on December 10, 1954, he was the son of the late Remo “Ray” Spinozzi and Louise Brown.

Scott graduated from Methacton High School, class of 1972, and earned a B.S. in Business Administration from Bloomsburg State College in 1977. Following college, Scott was a dedicated Local 420 steamfitter for over 30 years.

Scott was a man of many hobbies including screen printing T-shirts at Fernville, photography and kitchen experiments. He took much pride in remodeling and refurbishing his home. Much of his time was spent tinkering and toiling in the garage, working on a car or go-kart, fixing the John Deere, or building a potato bazooka. You may have seen him flying a model airplane, and subsequently searching through fields to determine where it crash landed. When you visited 7th Avenue, he’d excitedly show you a jar of something pickling in the fridge or tubs of dandelion wine fermenting in the basement. He spent summers at the Barclay Bowhunters Association, fishing at Sunfish Pond, or at the shore where he could be found crabbing on the docks or fishing in the surf. In the winter, Scott’s favorite pastime was cheating death on his snowmobiles. He will be remembered for his humor, hardworking and fun seeking nature.

Scott is survived by his daughters Angela, (David); Maria (Philip); grandchildren Rocco, Leighton and Ka’mari; stepmother, Connie; brother Chris (Julie) as well as several nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his brother Anthony. A private service for immediate family will be held.

Add My Condolences

Scott was my cousin and as he was 9 years older than me, as a kid he was always someone I looked up to and was always excited to see. He was always very lighthearted and quick with a joke when we were young. I also remember him to be quite adventurous and willing to push the envelope sometimes for fun. During the blizzard of '78, he rode his snowmobile all the way from the Collegeville area, where he lived, to our home in West Chester. As a 14 year old kid at the time, I thought that was the coolest thing in the world. Sadly, we didn't see too much of him after those years as our different lives took us in different directions. The last time I saw Scott was at our aunt's memorial service in 2009. Though he wasn't quite as spry and energetic as he was when we were younger, there were moments when I saw that twinkel in his eye that always accompanied his sense of humor. To be honest, he was my favorite cousin and I'm sorry that I didn't make more of an effort to keep in touch, and now the opportunity is gone. God has has given us this gift of life but it is short. The Lord has also given us the gift of relationships, first with Him, and then with those He puts in our paths. This is a wakeup call to me to not assume those He has put in our lives will be there forever.

I am so sad to have lost a good friend of many years. We spent many a time on the phone reminiscing about our lives in high school playing football side by side, and attending college together. I will miss him very much, but glad we spent time keeping in touch over the years.
