Scott B. Larouche

July 29, 1966 - December 24, 2012



Scott Bradley Larouche, of Anaheim, California, passed away from a heart attack on December 24, 2012 at the age of 46.

Born on July 29, 1966 in Orange, California to Gerald Robert Larouche and Marsha Ann Waggoner-Larouche, Scott grew up in Anaheim, Irvine and San Juan Capistrano California, where he attended Capistrano Valley and San Clemente High Schools.

Scott was predeceased by his father, Gerald Robert Larouche, paternal grandparents, Joseph Adrian Larouche and Rena Gagne-Larouche, and maternal grandfathers Eugene Fayette Cook and Ted Tracy Waggoner.

Scott is survived by his loving wife, Leann Oaks-Larouche and his 3 children Adrian Lepe, Breanne Figueroa-Colton and Dylan Larouche of Anaheim, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends.

Scott is lovingly remembered by his step-father Phil Schwartze, his brothers Chris (wife Karlylle, sons Ian and Carson), John and Ryan Schwartze (daughter Lillian), his sister Adrian Larouche, his maternal grandmother Iona Waggoner and his step-grandmother Carolyn Towery.

Scott enjoyed sports, reading, movies and music, and was a lifelong Angel’s baseball fan. His intellect, sharp wit and spirituality made an impression on everyone who knew him. Scott lived every minute of his short life full of passion and determination, and on his own terms.

After cremation, private services followed by a celebration of his life will be held in San Juan Capistrano on January 13th at The Villa and the Ramos House Café.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made for the Dylan Matthew Larouche Educational Fund in care of the San Juan Capistrano Farmers and Merchants Bank.

  1. Dear Scott,
    You were a pure joy to know. I loved your sense of humor and great intellect.
    We will take good care of Leann and Dylan until you can see them again. I will always remember that your last words to me as you hugged me goodbye were, “welcome to the family.”

    You have been and will continue to be the most important person in my life. I cannot express in words how much I loved you and how much you meant to me. I wish I had expressed that more to you during our time together. The love, patience, understanding and acceptance you gave me is unlike any I have ever known. You helped me to see myself more clearly and taught me so much about people and relationships. I believe you were my soul mate. No one has ever known me better than you, and I believe our deep understanding of one another made us a good partnership. I have so many wonderful memories of our time together. We went through a lot of tough, rather incredibly difficult, times together, but I also feel the pain and trials we endured together also brough us closer. I will never forget you. I miss you so much, you cannot believe. Dylan misses you. Right now I am so lonely without you, and I am facing huge fears of raising Dylan alone. I depended on you SO much for so many things. The signed copy of The Giving Tree that you gave me for my birthday in 2008 had the page you had written on ripped out by Dylan. I found part of the ripped page the other day. That part had your name on it, and I frantically found the book so I could tape it to the part it was ripped from. You wrote you will always be my TREE. You were so right. You have been and will continue to be my tree. You were an incredible individual, Scott. If I could do one thing over I would have appreciated you more, and made you know how much I appreciated and loved you. I will always love you, that I know for sure. You had so many talents and gifts that I miss so much and yearn for. I would do anything to feel you again, to have you back. I know you are at peace now. I know you are an Angel. I hope you will watch over Dylan and I and lead us on a positive path of peace, serenity, love and health. Help guide me in raising Dylan. I try to use the patience I’ve seen in you. I miss you so much and I want so badly to be with you again. I pray that time will be after my job as a parent to our wonderful son is mostly done and he is a self-sufficient adult. What I’ve said here doesn’t hold a candle to the despair I feel on a daily basis. I have no idea why that evening was your time. I still cannot accept it. I am grateful that I was able to tell you I love you. I am so grateful you were able to hear me. And everyday I cherish that you were able to express your love to me in the last breaths you had. I love you, Scott. I love you, babe. You have been my everything, and you have meant the world to me.


  3. Phil. I was so terribly sorry to hear about the passing of your son. Sharon and Dean shared with me your loss. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. Ellen Guccione

  4. Dear Scott

    Let me just say you’re yag for not waiting a bit longer before you left. I know you already know that, but I need just needed to remind you. It could have been two years ago I was 6 years old playing Air Sea Battle with you on Saturday mornings at the Cordova house. I closed my eyes for a minute and 30 years passed. I wasn’t done hearing your jokes, listening to your advice, or being in the presence of your immense knowledge of the world. You were definitely a quintessential big brother. Picking on me when I did or didn’t deserve it, being there when I needed it, and making me laugh non-stop.

    This has been a hard year for me as you know. I lost my best friend over the summer. However, I picked up a couple Shel Silverstein books thanks to you,The Missing Piece and The Missing Piece Meets the Big O. I know this was your way of telling me about my situation and where I need to go from here. Thank you. It has given me the clarity I need to finally move on and to know what my journey needs to be.

    I know you are needed elsewhere now to make other people laugh, give other people advice, and instill others with your knowledge. I will be talking to you a lot when I get confused, but I know you’ll light the way for me in your own style. It would be selfish of me to think that someone who has your gifts could only stay in one place. I was blessed to have you in my life, as my brother, and you always will be. Please keep the 2600 and Nerf football ready. I’ll see you when I get to the Cordova house up there. Peace be with you. With all the love in the world.


  5. Scott….I am so very glad to have you as part of my life. For about 40 years we shared our lives together. In the last few months we had made so may strides forward that I saw the joy of your life increasing everyday. It was so much fun to see your bad luck start turning into great luck on all counts. Last week you told me that you were very happy with the family, your work and that you were really looking forward to 2013. You had your zeal back.
    Oh how I wish you were here. I need someone to help cheer on the Angels and also Mark Martin in NASCAR. Who will let me borrow a light saber to take to the John Williams concert?
    You taught me and your brothers more than we could ever teach you. We will all be thankful forever.
    I will miss our phone calls and you making me laugh at something…. most of the time myself. All of us will do our best to make sure that Leann and Dylan have a happy and peaceful life even though you are not there to share in the joy of their day to day life.

    I know you wanted Dylan to be a left handed relief pitcher for the Angels but I am not sure I can make that come true. Him being right handed is a problem. Today Dylan, Leann and I took a ride in Dylan’s favorite “Bye Bye Truck”. He loved every minute. We sang “wheels of the bus go round and round”. Joan bought him his own small Bye Bye Truck for Christmas. He loved it too.

    You are a special person and all of your family misses you greatly.

    The last words you said to me Christmas Eve were “I love you Dad”. I said “I love you too.” I always..always will.
