Steven Michael Scolini of Folsom, California, died unexpectedly after a brief illness on January 8th, 2019 at the age of 56. He is survived by his wife, Robin of 31 years; his children, Alexandria of Cotati, California and Nicholas of Las Vegas, Nevada. He is also survived by his mother, Shirley Scolini of Pleasant Hill, California; and brothers, Anthony Scolini of Danville, California and David (Kris) of Concord, California; and nieces and nephews, Gianna, Joseph, Sophia, Isabella and Giovanni. He is preceded in death by his father, Michael, a long time Pacifica and Walnut Creek, California resident. Steve was born on April 12th, 1962 and grew up in Pacifica, California. He was very involved at St. Peter's Catholic Church where he played CYO basketball and served as an altar boy. He attended St. Ignatius (SI) College Preparatory in San Francisco (class of 1980). Steve was a two sport All League athlete at SI in basketball and baseball. Steve attended the University of San Francisco (USF class of 1984) on a baseball scholarship and was a West Coast Conference All League baseball player as a first baseman and was once featured in a full-length article in the San Francisco Chronicle. Following graduation from USF, Steve started his business career at Kilpatrick's Bakery. He held various roles and ascended to the General Manager level in a short period of time in the East Bay of San Francisco. While the bakery industry went through heavy consolidation during the late 1990's and 2000's, Steve worked for various companies in the retail bakery sector and relocated to Folsom, California where he and Robin raised their two children. Steve was very passionate about the game of baseball. He played adult league softball for many years and gave back to the community by serving on the board and coaching within Folsom's Little League program where he was highly respected by the other coaches and parents. He was also a very committed father. His love for baseball and his children were best intertwined when Steve coached a travel team with his son, Nick, while his daughter, Alexandria, often served as scorekeeper. He was extremely proud of his children and their accomplishments. Steve was strongly admired by his former classmates, teammates and co-workers. He had a unique talent of befriending strangers and could and would talk to anyone. This strength helped him build trusted relationships with the many people he interacted with while he managed his bakery route. Over the past several years, Steve worked very diligently to conquer his addiction to alcohol. He devoted himself to living a clean and sober lifestyle and was successful in doing so. He was a role model to others struggling with addiction in Sacramento County. Our family would like to thank all of those who advocated for him and supported him through his journey. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Memory of Steve Scolini Class of 1980 to St. Ignatius College Preparatory 2001, 37th Avenue, San Francisco, California 94116. Information will be circulated regarding memorial services to celebrate Steve's life once they are made.
