In memory of
Scott G. Davidson died peacefully surrounded by his loving family at his home in South Hadley, MA on June 28, 2020 at the age of 64. Scott is survived by the love of his life and wife of 40 years, MaryBeth Davidson; his cherished daughters, Shannon Zachary, Colleen Hannon and Meg Davidson; his four grandchildren, who brought him such joy, Finnegan and Cormac Hannon, Calla and Delia Zachary; his devoted mother, Elizabeth Davidson; his sisters, whom he adored, Beth Tierney, Debra Grassetti, Trish Audette and Mary Davidson; and by many loving brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews and treasured friends. He is preceded in death by his father Gordon Davidson. Scott was born on January 19, 1956 in Springfield, MA. He graduated from East Longmeadow High School in 1974 and from St. Michael’s College with a bachelor of science in 1978. He then went on to earn the designation of Certified Insurance Counselor. He married MaryBeth in 1980 and the two began a life steeped in love, family and laughter. Scott started his 42 year career as an insurance professional with Sentry Insurance, later taking the post of Vice President at Gammons, Potter & Prentiss Insurance Agency alongside his father. Scott and his family relocated to Vermont where he joined Vermont Mutual Insurance Company as a Special Agent. During his tenure at VM he served as the President of the Vermont Insurance Professionals Association. Scott’s charming personality was larger than life, offering positivity and jokes when he entered every room. He was always the first to share his beautiful singing voice, don the Santa suit at the holiday party and follow through on an offer to help you move a piano. Scott was dedicated to his various communities, serving on the parish council of St. Monica Catholic Church in Barre, VT and as an active member of the Jaycees in East Longmeadow, MA. He brought his life-long gusto for all Boston sports teams to coaching his three daughters’ teams and to enthusiastically participating on the sidelines. He loved life and made everyone who had the luck to know him feel special, valued, and welcome at the table. He taught us to run full-speed at life, find fun in even the most unlikely circumstances, and never pass up an opportunity for a party. A memorial will be scheduled at a later date to celebrate his incredible life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Holyoke VNA Hospice Life Care at 575 Beech Street, Holyoke, MA 01040 ( http://www.holyokevna.org/ ).
