SCOTT M. STARAI GEORGIA - Scott Michael Starai, 47, passed away on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, at his home in Georgia, surrounded by his loving family, following a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Chicago, Ill., on March 21, 1966, son of Joseph Starai and the late Calli (Ragland) Starai. Scott married the love of his life, the former Christine Morin, on Dec. 30, 2005. He loved the four seasons that Vermont has to offer. He was often found spending time with his family during those seasons; either camping at Appletree Bay, boating on Lake Champlain, snowmobiling across the many trails Vermont has to offer, or simply snowshoeing through the fields. Scott was a car enthusiast and held a passion for them from fast ones to classic ones to even building model ones. He spent many years restoring his '69 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible with his many friends. Scott owned Advance Towing & Repair in Milton where his passion for cars and their owners showed as he and his wife built a reliable and reputable business. Scott will be deeply missed by his family and by his many loyal customers whom he called friends. Scott is survived by his loving wife of eight years, Christine "Chris" (Morin) Starai of Georgia; two sons, Charles Starai of Milton, and Zachary Saine of Georgia; his daughter, Samantha Starai of Georgia; his father, Joseph Starai of Chicago, Ill.; mother-in-law, Lucille Morin of Williston; brother, Jeff Starai of Florida; sister, Jodi Bateman and husband, James, of Florida; two brothers-in-law and their families, Roger Morin and wife, Bea, of Plattsburg, and Bob Morin of Milton; two sisters-in-law, Paulette Appolonia and husband, Peter, of Texas, and Lorraine Tomilson of Burlington; two grandsons; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many loving close and supportive friends. The family would like to extend many thanks to all those who helped with his care; you were all so supportive! Per Scott's wishes there will be no public visiting hours held. A celebration of Scott's life will be held on Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013, at 3:30 p.m. at the United Church of Fairfax with Reverend Elizabeth Griffin officiating. Inurnment will be private and at the convenience of the family. Memorial contributions in Scott's memory may be made to A.W.
