Scott J.'s Story
Scott Joseph Lukegord of Gloucester, Mass., 53, passed away on June 3, 2016, following a courageous battle against lung disease. Professionally, he was a longtime Delta Airlines employee in Boston and also worked at Calvary Cemetery in Gloucester. In his heart, Scott was always a Lanesville kid, exploring Plum Cove Beach and the surrounding woods and quarries with lifelong friends, Raem, Sonny, Jonathan, Danny, Tommy, Dana, John, Bobby, and Jay. Scott’s last days were full of amusement and camaraderie, listening to his friends share tales of those wonderful early years.
He was born in Gloucester on April 1, 1963, to Thomas and the late, beloved Susan (Pitkanen) Lukegord. Scott graduated from Landmark School and attended North Shore Community College. Scott was an accomplished boatman, who loved to fish and was a good jig fisherman. He worked on Gloucester party boats, assisting many on fishing and whale-watching trips. Traveling to Germany with his parents to visit his dearest friend, Katalin, was a high-point. He also enjoyed fun trips to Florida. In recent years, Scott enjoyed a quiet life, embracing his daughter’s stories of raising her beautiful girls, enjoying visits with his father and brothers, and watching nature, animal, and investigative programs. He befriended his neighbors wherever he lived and they, like his family and friends, will miss him dearly.
Scott is survived with great love by his devoted daughter, Teresa, and granddaughters, Cianna and Lillianna, of Manchester, N.H.; his father, Thomas W. Lukegord, Sr. of Lanesville; his brother, Dan Lukegord; and nephews, Zac and Max of Hampton, N.H.; his brother, Tom Lukegord Jr. and wife, Ann of Gloucester; and nieces and nephews, Nicole and Erik Carlson of Danvers, Brittney and Dan Brown of Beverly, and Jillian Lukegord of Magnolia; his beloved aunts, Marilyn Lukegord Richard of Billerica and Nancy Robinson Fournier of Dudley; his daughter’s maternal grandmother, Elizabeth and her husband, Robert Cannon; and his many, many treasured cousins and friends.
