WEST BOYLSTON-Scott Dana DePatsy, 56, died Monday, May 24, 2021 at UMASS Memorial Medical Center after a long illness.
He was born in Holden, son of the late Alfred "Jack" and Rosalyn (Krostosky) DePatsy. Scott served in the U.S. Army for a brief period prior to honorable discharge due to his health. He worked in Security while he lived in Las Vegas and then as a Corrections Officer here in Massachusetts. Scott was also once employed at the former Norton Company.
Scott is survived by three children; Scott D. DePatsy, Jr. and his wife Kristen of Killingly, CT, Matthew D. DePatsy of W. Boylston and Emily R. DePatsy of W. Boylston, a brother, Mark DePatsy and a sister, Sandra Army, both of W. Boylston. He also leaves seven beautiful grandchildren; Ava, Scarlett, Jackson, Rylie, Dakota, Oliviah and Zane, a nephew, Robert Daszuta, Jr. and his wife Becky, great nephew, Garrett Robbins, two nieces, Melanie Daszuta and Sherry Robbins and her husband Trent, his godmother, Donna Castagnetti Smith, an aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs Thomas Barrows of Atlanta, GA, along with many cousins. He was predeceased by his brother, Robert Daszuta, Sr.
His grandchildren and kids were his world and spending time with them was what he lived for. He always looked forward to the monthly card games with his childhood and life-long friends, Jack Lepore, Sean O'Brien, Paul Gonelli and Larry Bay. Scott's acts of kindness were shared with everyone. He would give flowers and candy to elderly women at the church Bingo for their birthday so they would feel special. When he was able to, he would buy hamburgers and hand them out to the homeless in Worcester, or a coffee or cold drink for the police on patrol in town. He always had a kind heart and gave to those in need or helped anyone he could. He waited with hope for a liver transplant and cherished life even while dealing with pain and suffering every day. His PCA, Luis Ortiz, who cared for him daily was a "Godsend". The true definition of "what so ever you do for the least of my brothers". Scott's legacy will live on through his family and friends, and the memories he left us with.
Scott's Funeral will be held Friday, May 28th. Visiting hours are from 9:00am until 10:30am at Fay Brothers Life Celebration Home, 1 West Boylston Street, followed by a Funeral Mass at 11am at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, 111 Worcester Street, W. Boylston. Burial will be at Mt. Vernon Cemetery.
