W. SCOTT DRAGANCHUK, was born on February 20, 1964, in Northridge, CA, and passed away at home on Saturday, January 25, 2020, in Ventura, CA.

Scott passed away after nearly a lifetime battle with chronic ulcerated colitis, which ultimately led to his internal infection and cancer. For the past year he has been in and out of the hospital, including a long stay at UCLA. After UCLA, he was sent home to be under the loving care of his wife Della and hospice.

Scott was one of a kind: honest, loving, caring, humorous and helpful to anyone who asked. After graduation from Ventura High School, he went to work as an installer and service technician for the family owned Fail Safe Alarms & Dictograph Security System. He was trained by the company that demanded quality workmanship. Scott maintained that attribute for the rest of his career in the industry. As a supervisor, he was highly respected in the industry. After the family sold the company, he worked for another large company in Los Angeles. Scott later joined his brother Mark at Draganchuk Alarm Systems as a supervisor. After it sold, Scott continued to work in the security alarm business. Scott is survived by his loving & caring wife, Della; stepsons, Byron, Doug & Matthew Crawford; father, Bill Draganchuk; brother, Mark (Leasa); nephews, Tyler & Ryan; sister, Jean Watson (Robert) their children, Kevin Watson and Vanessa Exum & family.

Scott will be missed by his family and friends and those who knew him. Heaven will be a better place for him and he will be reunited with his mother Dale.

My Sister Kim Metternick was a best friend to Scott. For years and years I looked forward to hearing what she was cooking for Scott and he s Dad on Christmas, Thanksgiving and more. She was a BIG part of his life and has been honored to be supporting Scott’s wife through this journey.
RIP Scott your truly miss already.

Life is definitely to short. So many plans and dreams. Scott made Della so happy and they shared so much love. They had so many plans for the future, that is what hurts my heart the most.
I do want to thank Scott for all the love and attention he has given to Della over the years. She so deserved it. All the trips and gorgeous Christmas memories at West Baden it was so fitting that Christmas Day would also be their wedding day. Scott was always so very caring and supportive of our Grams. Goodbye Scott we will miss you.

I worked with Scott at two different companies, he literally taught me everything I know about alarms as well as our long life talks in those yellow tacomas. I don’t have just one memory of Scott because I worked with him almost everyday for 3 years, there was tough days, we would argue, we would laugh, but the thing I will always remember about Scott was how caring of a person he was and how he bettered my life with the knowledge I have now for my job as well as how I deal with life in a whole. I remember not soldering a wire and he would go back to that wire and make me re do it “the right way” I was 20 and was a hard headed kid and always talked back to him but I felt like he was always a father figure to me, there was always a reason behind why he would tell me to do certain things a certain way and now I am realizing it in my job now as I grow up.I will miss Scott greatly, but I will always keep the knowledge he so generously shared with me and all of the memories I have of him.
