A beloved son, brother, dad, grandpa and uncle, Scott Dudero of Escondido passed away on Sat., Jan. 9, 2021, after battling heart disease. He was 79.

Scott was born on Aug. 9, 1941, in St. Paul, MN, to Gordon E. Dudero and Virginia L. Coffman. He moved to southern California as a child and grew up in Valley Center, attending Escondido H.S. He lived in Escondido on and off for over 50 years. 

Before retiring to spend more time on the golf course, Scott made a living as a skilled carpenter. He built beautiful decks, porches, cabinetry and more for homes across the West. He had a great sense of humor, loved playing cards with friends, and enjoyed watching sports of all kinds. He was a devoted Padres fan.
