09/14/1959 to 04/16/2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Aidan Scott of Port Washington.

The middle of three sons of Anne Scott, Aidan was born in Carrick on Shannon on September 14, 1959. Aidan earned his electrician’s degree from Anco College, Ireland and in 1986 he moved to New York to follow the American dream.

Aidan started his own business, in 1989 and was a highly respected and successful owner/operator of S&N Electrical in Port Washington until his death.

Aidan moved to Port Washington not long after arriving in America and there he met and fell in love with Mary Lennon.

Aidan and Mary married in 1995 and together they raised two loving sons, Owen and John. Aidan was a devoted and loving husband, father, brother, uncle and friend, with a very dry wit and infectious belly laugh.

On any given day, when not working on electrics, Aidan could be found on the golf course, driving around town and Long Island in his classic green MG, or barbecuing in the backyard for any number of friends and family.

Aidan was a prodigious reader and loved to travel and do the Times crosswords, all of which made him an unbeatable pub-quiz competitor. Aidan was looking forward to retiring with the love of his life, Mary and making time for more travel and visits with family.

Aidan was traveling in Ireland with his wife Mary, after attending his niece’s wedding in Donegal, when he suffered a medical emergency and died.

Aidan is survived by his wife, Mary, together for 34 years, sons, John and Owen, grandson Aidan, Mother, Anne and his brothers, Noel and Declan. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

A cremation service took place in Dublin, Ireland on April 20. Donations, if desired, can be made to Cancer Research. A celebration of Aidan’s life will be held in Port Washington later this year for his extended family and friends.
