Services for Longwood High School student Feliciano Scotts Amaya, 20


Family, friends and members of the Longwood schools community will gather this weekend to mourn the passing of high school student Feliciano Scotts Amaya, who died Saturday after a brief illness. He was 20 years old.

Longwood schools Superintendent Lance Lohman announced the student’s death on Tuesday in a letter to the community.

A visitation service for Amaya is scheduled for Sunday, March 17, from 5-9 p.m. at Robertaccio Funeral Home, located at 85 Medford Ave. in Patchogue. A funeral Mass for Amaya will be held on Thursday, March 18, at St. Joseph the Worker Church, 510 Narragansett Ave. in East Patchogue.

Amaya is survived by his mother, Guadalupe; six siblings, Silvia Hernandez, Melissa Flores, Anna Amaya, Rose Amaya, Carman Amaya and Mario Amaya; 14 nieces and nephews; and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father Jose Amaya and his older sister Maria Amaya.

“He will live on in each and every persons heart he has touched and forever be missed,” reads his obituary posted by the funeral home. “He is now resting in peace freely flying high with the angels.”

Lohman in his letter noted that Amaya died after battling an illness that “rapidly progressed.” The school administrator wrote that Amaya was genuinely kind and “touched the lives of so many.”

“Scotty’s teachers consistently shared stories reflecting the special bond and positive relationships he maintained with friends,” Lohman wrote, “along with the close connections he made with our faculty and staff who had the great fortune of working with him.”
