ROCHESTER - Scott Sousa, 28, of Rochester, N.H., died unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 26, 2016.

Scott was born on January 7, 1988, in Malden, Mass. He is the son of Michael D. Sousa of Alfred, Maine, and Ann Marie (Nutt) Joseph of Somersworth, N.H.

Over the years Scott worked in the restaurant business as well as construction and roofing. Scott enjoyed the beach, snowboarding and camping. His great sense of humor and laugh were contagious. Unfortunately, as with many others, Scott struggled with an ongoing heroin addiction. Recently, Scott was on a wait listed to enter a clinic designed to help people overcome drug addictions. He was looking forward to starting his life over. Like many addicts waiting for intervention, Scott's addiction led to his drug arrest landing him in the Rockingham County jail in Brentwood, N.H. It was here that Scott was discovered unresponsive April 21. Knowing that bringing light to where there is darkness helps one heal, Scott's parents opted to turn their tragedy into a gift of life for others. Their son became a hero April 26 donating to others awaiting lifesaving transplants.

Scott also leaves behind his five year-old son Ayden of Rochester, N.H., Brother Christopher Sousa of Alfred, Maine, grandparents Mark J. and Raylene Sousa of Shapleigh, Maine, many extended family members and friends. He was predeceased by paternal grandmother Marilyn R. Sousa, maternal grandmother Linda Jestings and Uncle Stephen J. Sousa.

I knew Scott for many years, this is very sad. I'm always worried when I sign on to FB that I'm going to see someone else has passed away from this terrible disease and lo and behold....
I'm so sorry for the families loss.
RIP Scott

I met Scott in middle school and hadn't seen him since high school he was a kind hearted person. If you needed anything he'd give you the shirt off his back. I hate to know that he was in so much pain but I'm glad he's at peace now rest in peace Scott.
