QUENTIN PAUL SCARANTINO
January 25, 1997 ~ July 25, 2010
Quentin Paul Scarantino passed from this life in his sleep, on July 25, at the age of 13. Quentin lived his entire life in San Juan Capistrano with his brother, Dominic, sisters, Angelique and Daniella and parents Sherri and Sal.
Quentin could only be described as beyond outgoing, full of energy despite his health condition and on a continuous mission to meet and befriend every single person willing to spare a moment of their time. And make friends he did! Whether it was in his family’s sports bar/Italian restaurant, at a party, beach, store, in school or around the neighborhood. If you had an interesting look about you or just a nice smile Quentin would approach, extend his hand and say ‘Hi I’m Quentin.’ With a positive response the interview would begin. He melted some pretty hard characters with his technique and on his next visit he would call you by name.
Quentin had ‘NO BAD DAYS’ and lived his life with more enthusiasm and happiness than anyone we have ever met. He will be sorely missed by many, but his lessons live on.
There are no words to thank all the people who gave Quentin their attention and affection for that is what made his life.
Memorial for Quentin
On Sunday July 25, Sal and Sherri’s son Quentin passed on to life in heaven. Over the past 10 years Quentin spent his time making friends. When you can make a friend for life in less than 5 minutes you will live more in 13 years than most of us can hope for in a lifetime. He led a full and blessed life doing everything he wanted to do.
Quentin considered everyone he met to be his friend and anyone he hadn’t met, soon to become his friend. He seated himself at many tables without invitation. He was not constrained by the rules of society. He had no reservations and didn’t feel he needed any.
