AMY Davidson, Pete Davidson’s mom, has shared a heartbreaking tribute to her late husband on the anniversary of his death.
He passed away during the September 11 attacks at the age of 33 when Pete was only seven years old.
Scott was last seen running up the stairs of the Marriott World Trade Centre hotel just minutes before the second Twin Tower collapsed and was later confirmed dead.
One photo even showed a young Pete smiling as his dad put his firefighter jacket on him.
“Happiest days of my life and I didn’t know it,” Amy wrote in the caption of the post. “Never forget and always be grateful.”
Followers have been sharing their thoughts and condolences in the comments section of the post.
“Your son has done a amazing job keeping his memory alive,” one fan wrote.
A second wrote: “Sending so much love and support. He would be so incredibly proud of you and Pete and Casey.”
“Was just thinking of you and your family. We will never forget. Sending you all love,” a third commented.
“Said my prayers for your family last night. Think of you all every 9/11. May we never forget,” wrote another.
Before joining the fire department in 1994, Scott graduated from the College of Staten Island where he received a bachelor’s degree in history.
Scott had a lifelong dream of becoming a firefighter, and often said it was the “greatest job in America.”
PETE SPEAKS OUT
The comedian opened up about his father’s passing in his movie, The King Of Staten Island.
Speaking to Englishheadline about the film, Pete said: Making this film allowed me to grow more as a person.”
He added: “One of the main reasons why I wanted to make this movie and tell this story was because I wanted this chapter in my life to be closed.
“Not forgotten, but I wanted to be able to move on and show that it’s okay to have issues and it’s okay to struggle and that you’re not alone and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”
Earlier this year, the comedian opened up about the traumatic way he found out about his father’s death on 9/11.
Speaking on the Real Ones podcast, Pete said his mom didn’t tell him the news for roughly three days after she picked him up from school the day the tragedy occurred.
He said his mother “grounded” him from watching television so that he wouldn’t see the news.
“Then one night, I turned on the TV and I just saw my dad on the TV,” Pete said.
“I was like, ‘Oh, OK.’ And they were like, these are all the firemen that are, like, dead.”
He also said they didn’t know his father was dead for roughly three weeks, which led the family to remain hopeful at first.
