January 6, 1964 - January 11, 2021
Kecia R. Scigliuto, 57, of Seminole, Florida, died unexpectedly and suddenly on Monday, January 11, 2021 at her home in Seminole Florida. Kecia was born in Syracuse, New York on January 6, 1964 to Penny and Jim Riccelli. She was a nationally ranked top gymnast, competitive skier, and high jumper, and spent much of her childhood at Moto-Masters Park, the motocross track her family owned. Kecia graduated from Cicero-North Syracuse High School in 1982, where she held the women’s high jump record for 40 years after her graduation. She obtained a full track & field scholarship to Boston University where she obtained her undergraduate degree in Marketing in 1986. Boston always held a special place in her heart. She took every opportunity to visit after her graduation, and never missed a chance to indulge in a genuine Bostonian lobster roll. Kecia continued her education and obtained a Masters degree in Physical Therapy from the medical school at Miami University in 1990. Kecia had a flourishing 10-year career in the physical therapy discipline. She then worked with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals and was the top pharmaceutical representative in her division for 5 years. For the past 15 years, Kecia aided her husband David as the Operations Manager in their David A Scigliuto Wealth Management business. Kecia is survived by her husband David of Seminole Florida, mother Penelope (& Dr. Robert Bach), of Marco Island Florida, father Dr. James (& Lecia) Riccelli, Sr. of Syracuse, NY, mother-in-law Cecilia Scigliuto of Largo, Florida, daughters Siena Scigliuto and Samantha (& Som) Kohanzadeh of Los Angeles, California, Christina Scigliuto of Orlando, Florida, sisters Tatiana Riccelli (& Jonas Pearson) of Orlando, Florida, Gia (& Joseph) Pauldine of Rochester, New York, brother James Riccelli Jr (Wendy) of Lafayette, New York, grandchildren Aviva and Leo Kohanzadeh, nieces Tori Riccelli and Francesca Albertine, and nephew Jake Riccelli. Kecia, with her husband David, were both avid and accomplished drag racers. Kecia is best known for her beloved Chevy-powered Mustang, the Chevystang, in which she terrorized both Mustang and Chevy enthusiasts throughout the country. Her love of travel, nature, and new experiences has taken her from the peaks of Yosemite to the coral reefs of the Florida Keys, the volcanic lava tunnels of Hawaii to the ruins of Pompeii. Kecia will be missed by her many friends and family. A funeral service will be held at St. Jerome Catholic Church in Largo, Florida on Monday, January 18, 2021 at 11:00am. This funeral service will be followed by a celebration of life at the Bayou Club. A private internment will follow at the family’s discretion.
