AIDS LifeCycle: Honoring Memory of Friends & Fundraising for the Future

Jun 5, 2017

There’s a photo on the front of my bike this week. It’s a picture of my old friend Scott.

Scott Chirila was my wife’s best friend in high school. He was sharp, funny, and one of the nicest people I have ever met. Throughout high school, everyone thought Scott and my wife Gayle would end up getting married and live happily ever after, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Scott was gay, and he died of AIDS in 1991.

We all grew up together in Missouri before Scott moved off to LA in the mid-1980’s to follow his dreams. He worked at the University of Southern California in their grant department and loved everything about living in Los Angeles.

In 1987 we moved to Brea, California with our three-week old son, Teague. Initially, Scott was the only person we knew in the area, and he quickly introduced us to his wide circle of friends.
