The community of Solana Beach has lost one of its own.

Scott Billington passed away on January 10, 2015 after a long battle with cancer. He was 55 years old. He is survived by his wife Jessica, his daughter Reese and his son John.

Scott was a tireless supporter of his community. Among others, his stint as President of the Solana Beach Soccer Club and work for the Solana Beach Schools Foundation fundraising events earned him the title as the unofficial “Mayor” of Solana Beach.

Many residents were honored to call him a friend. His genuine interest in others made everyone feel special when around him. It was expected, then, that when in need of advice or just a kind word of support, many turned to Scott. Local children knew him for having the loudest whistle on the ball field and for having the kindest heart around. To many, they have lost their “second” dad.

Scott’s love for his community was returned tenfold when he became ill. The upwelling of support from so many people was living proof of just how special this place is. His battle with cancer was unbearable at times, but the support from the community eased that burden immensely. For that, our family will forever be grateful.

Over his too-short life, Scott graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, earned a Commander rank in the Naval Air Reserves, was a Captain for Delta Airlines, and was a respected real estate agent in North County. But despite all that, Scott’s three greatest jobs—and the ones he was most proud of—were his roles as a Husband, a Father and a Friend.

He was honored to be a member of this community. And he will be missed.

Sports & Nutrition

It is well known that exercise offers many benefits to children’s physical health. Where we are falling short is with the nutritional choices we offer our children at sporting events.
