Scott Dansker, a resident of Darien and a high school student at Admiral Farragut Academy, passed away suddenly on Friday, April 23, in St. Petersburg, Florida. He was 16.
Scott was a triplet born on July 29, 2004, to Brad and Serina Dansker. From the moment he was born, Scott’s inner joy, magnetic personality, and charm captivated everyone he met. He was a bright star who lit up every room he entered.
He had a passion for politics and debate and would challenge anyone to take him on. Scott was also an old soul who enjoyed the Golden Oldies ’80s music, and his great dance moves made him the life of the party.
In his short life, Scott wrote original poetry, cared deeply about his community, and enjoyed wrestling, scuba diving, sailing, and camping.
A place where he felt he was his most true self was Camp Hazen. His love of science and nature in addition to the lifelong friendships he made there made Camp Hazen his second home. He was a Boy Scout, Venture Scout and the senior patrol leader of his troop in Florida. He will be widely missed by family and friends.
Scott is survived by his parents, Brad and Serina Dansker; his two siblings, Jake and Lexi Dansker; and his grandmother, Joan Cioffi.
A walk-through visitation will be held on Thursday, April 29, 2021 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Lawrence Funeral Home, 2119 Post Road.
A Mass will be held at 10:30 a.m., Friday, April 30, 2021 at St. Thomas More Parish, 374 Middlesex Road, Darien. Burial will follow at Spring Grove Cemetery.
