John Patrick Scalia, 63, of Dustin Acres, CA, passed away on September 9, 2023. He was born on March 19, 1960, in Hollywood, CA. John's journey began in Alhambra, CA, and eventually led him to Taft, CA, where he attended Taft College and played as the linebacker for the Cougar's. His passion for the sport extended beyond his playing days, as he later became the coach for the team, and a devoted USC fan! John's professional career included working for various oil production companies in the area before finding his calling as a soil technician. He traveled throughout California, leaving a lasting impact on the communities he served. John retired from Krazan and Associates in 2020, allowing him to devote more time to his beloved hobbies and interests as being a college football aficionado, a freshwater fisherman and antique enthusiast.
John is survived by his daughters, Chrissy Rodart and her husband Jacob, Melissa Perry, Heather Spring and her husband Donny, his grandsons Carson Rodart, Callum Spring, and Carter Spring, as well as his first wife, Nanette. He is also survived by his sisters Lisa, Diane, Susan, Sophia, and Shirley, as well as his brother Dean. John was preceded in death by his wife Kimberly Morrisey-Scalia, his parents Larry and Donna Scalia, and his grandson Wyatt James Rodart. He leaves behind many nieces and nephews who will cherish his memory.
A memorial service will be held for John on Friday, October 27, at the Taft Moose Lodge (205 N. 10th Street, Taft, CA) at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Wyatt Rodart Memorial Scholarship fund organized through Taft Union High School or the Chad Tough Foundation.
John will forever be remembered for his dedication to his family, his love for his community, and his passion for the things that brought him joy.
