Scott Matthew Davidson

Scott Davidson was a man of many talents-firefighter‚ athlete‚ teacher‚ coach‚ and bartender just to name a few. He gave of himself to his community in many ways. He was looked up to by many as a basketball coach and school teacher. He enjoyed life and all it had to offer. He was a fierce competitor who won many awards. He was an all-star baseball player in the Great Kills Little League. He played four years of basketball at St. Joseph-by-the-Sea High School where he was named the most valuable player in the Jacques Classic All-Star High School game in 1986.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in history from the College of Staten Island where he played on the basketball team for all four years‚ and was captain his senior year.

Materialistic things were not of importance to Scott. The most important things to Scott were his two children‚ his son Peter‚ 8 years old‚ and his daughter Casey‚ 4 years old. He was very proud of them‚ and he was happiest while coaching them‚ having a catch or watching a dance recital. He coached his son Peter in football and baseball‚ and his daughter Casey was certainly a ‘Daddy’s Girl.’ He loved his children above all things.

One of the proudest moments in Scott’s life‚ aside from the birth of his two children‚ was when he graduated the fire academy. He worked at Ladder Company 118 in Brooklyn Heights‚ New York. He was a firefighter since January 16‚ 1994‚ a lifelong dream of his. He often said it was ‘the greatest job in America.’

On September 11‚ 2001‚ Scott was on duty and responded to the call after a second hijacked airliner struck the World Trade Center.

Scott’s acts of heroism are not surprising. He was a brave and fearless man and a devout patriot. He was a friend to many‚ and will be sorely missed by us all.

He is survived by his two children‚ Peter and Casey‚ his father Stephen Davidson‚ his mother Carla DiMaggio‚ his stepmother Linda Davidson‚ his brother Michael Davidson‚ and his grandmother Celia Lategano.

I continued to climb to the “110th Floor” keeping him in mind and those he loved. Remembering the sacrifice given, choking up at the honor of it all, and pushing through when I was tired and hot reminding myself of how little my act was in comparison to those firemen like Scott who gave their lives to save others that day. God Bless!

  43. I completed a 9/11 Memorial Climb(2019 Green Bay, WI), and I was honored to wear a badge with Scotts picture and name on it. Practically every flight I climbed I looked at his picture thinking what a true hero this man was. My Father was a volunteer firemen for 11 years. I never really thought much when I was a kid of what my dad went through when he left the house to run on a call. Pretty much thought that he would be back home soon. My heart goes out to his two children. Thanking your dad for the true sacrifice that he made that day. Kim N

    – Jo Ann
  46. Scott, thank you for your service. You were such an incredible human being, and not a day goes by without people thinking about you. You would be so proud of your children down here. Both Pete and Casey have made names for themselves in their own respective ways! You died a hero, but you live on in the hearts of many. Thank you again, Scott Matthew Davidson. God bless you and your family.

    – Dylan
  47. Tonight I walked in memory of Scott Davidson, on the 18th anniversary of his death. I cried for a man I never met as I picked up a lanyard with his photograph and ladder company affiliation because of the ultimate sacrifice he made for his community and our nation. I will never forget.

    – Kathleen Hodges
  48. Mr. Davidson,
    Thank you for being a true American hero. May God bless you today and always.
    With Love,
    Renee from Boston, MA

    – Renee
  49. Today, I for no reason at all, decided to look at the names of the fallen. I came across Scott’s name and noticed that we were the same age when he passed. I was serving year 14 of my 20 with the Coast Guard in San Diego, Ca. A day that horribly, like everyone else, I’ll never forget. Scott’s bio hit me quite hard. I believe he was someone i’d have been happy to know. It’s very indicative of a person, to be loved by so many. I pray that God will provide his devine comfort, to help assuage any remaining grief, that his loved ones still carry. One day we will all be reunited with our families, and I too, will have a chance to meet Scott.

    – Brent M. Bruce

  54. As a firefighter I am always indebted to your courage and bravery.
    A friend bought a restaurant and gave me a tour throughout the building. As we went to the basement, items that had been removed were there. He told me to take anything I wanted. As I looked down I immediately saw the picture of 118 Ladder crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. I took it. Not knowing this was the last time you would respond to a call.. it hangs with my 911 memorial tribute to the FDNY. God Bless 343

    – Fred Kottmyer III
  55. I didn’t know him. I never even heard about him until SNL. But to anybody that says 9/11 was a day of grief, I say that it was a day of grief and heroism.
    Thank you. If Pete saw you, he would say thank you

    – Eli Kelley

  116. Just watched the King of Staten Island. Pete is very talented. I have been a fireman for 25 years and knew many of the FDNY guys who perished on 9/11. Firefighter Davidson is a hero, not just for his actions on 9/11, which he inevitably knew he would die, but for the many times he put other lives before his.

  119. Your father sounds like my late husband John.
    John was a LT. For Baytown Fire & Rescue.
    John could do many things and if he didn’t know how to do it he would read about it and do it. He also played a little baseball on the Fire Department’s team.
    John also made a trip to NY after 9/11 to fill in and work for departments that were short staffed due to 9/11.
    Thank You to your father Scott, and all others who made the Sacrifice on 9/11.
    It will never be forgotten.

    – Jamie Carr

  165. God bless & (RIP) Scott. Such a young handsome man, father & husband. I lost my FDNY brother-in-law Robert Curtolo also from Staten Island and 31 years of age. He was just recently married and a Disney wedding 3 weeks prior. From a family of eight brothers and sisters 16 nieces and nephews, my twin sons who are now 29 made the dream come true of following in their uncle’s footsteps and my one twin son has been FDNY in Staten Island and is very proud to carry on his uncle’s legend. You were way way too young to die, or should I say be murdered. That tragic day that took so many innocent lives, people’s fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, and uncles, and friends. I’m sure you are as proud of your son looking down from heaven as he will always be so proud of you. You’re a true hero, one of the many, but you are so young too may you rest in eternal peace. The proud mother of a 29-year-old FDNY member, I cannot imagine the pain your family felt, especially your mother, your children, and your wife at your loss at such a young age. My prayers are with my son everyday as he works the job. His Uncle Rob had two other brothers who were also in the fire department, but survived, as well as my twin’s father Rob’s brother who was NYPD. Most people don’t understand how this day affected our lives unless they were personally affected themselves. God bless you and your family and maybe you watch over your children and no all of us affected personally and throughout America in the world those words will never be overused ever in life NEVER FORGOTTEN ❤️ Bless America America (RIP) Scott Davidson

  173. May you rest in peace along with my twin sons Uncle FDNY Robert Curatolo 31 from Staten Island New York along with their soccer coach FDNY Jeffrey Giordano, 45 Staten Island New York & Nicholas Russomando Rescue 5 Staten Island New York. My twin’s father played basketball with Scott, as my twin’s father worked for FDNY as well as Roberts too Brothers who were FDNY employed also. All three brothers search for their youngest brother in the rubble that terrible day as Robert headed to the second tower to save lives and tragically died while the tower fell upon them. My twins were 9 years old and with me on Flatbush avenue in Brooklyn on this terrible day. Losing their Uncle Rob will always be a scar in their heart ❤️‍ ❤️ may God bless Scott & Uncle Rob and all who were murdered on 9/11. ❤️ NEVER FORGOTTEN ❤️‍ God Bless & May rest in eternal peace, AMEN

  187. Just watching the movie „The King of Staten Island“ and somehow I read about the background story of the movie.

    It is so sad what happened that day, back on that September 11, 2001.
    But men like Firefighter Scott Matthew Davidson and all his friends who passed away that day remind us in the best way ever, how great humans really can be!
    Rest in peace – you brave men and great friends of all of us! Thank you so much!
    We remember and honor you, forever!

    – Tom
  188. I just completed my 7th memorial stair climb to honor the 343 firefighters that passed away that day. This year, I had heard that a comedians/actors father was one of those firefighters. I decided to look him up and read about him. I found out that this brave soul rushed in to the Marriott Hotel between the twin towers. Before the buildings collapsed, he helped save the lives of over 200 people. I am honored to have climbed with the badge of Scott Davidson this year. You are a hero. Because of you, countless lives were changed by your courage and selfless giving. I truly say thank you sir, for the sacrifice you made that day. God bless you and your family.

    – Paul Braatz
  189. Scott Davidson, father of two.
    His son, Pete, starred recently in King of Staten Island, by Judd Apatow (whose sister starred as Pete’s movie sister. And she was fantastic too).
    The movie is about a young man whose mental health is left very vague (though we can definitely presume autism spectrum and ADHD/ADD), and whose father had died whilst rescuing people from a fire whilst fulfilling firefighting duties.
    Pete’s character, Scott, after some immature gents and groans, eventually befreinds his mum’s new fella (also a firefighter) to learn more about his firefighting father beyond the rose-tinted version his mother ( the GORGEOUS Marisa Tomei) bolstered him with as he grew.
    And, is also as a movie, dedicated to Scott Mathew Davidson (Actor, Pete’s real life father).
    And WOWWWW! One of the VERY FEW modern move classics.
    God rest your soul Scott Davidson.

    – Paul G
