Six years ago, the world was hit with the sad news of the death of ESPN broadcaster Stuart Scott who died following a long battle with a rare form of cancer. Six years after his death, his daughters pay tribute to him.


Stuart Scott became one of the most loved broadcasters during his time on ESPN and contributed to the rise of "Sports Center" with his unique presentation skills and energy.

On January 4, 2015, news of his demise filtered the media, leaving everyone to grieve his loss. Six years after his death, the world has not forgotten him.

His daughters Taelor and Sydni both paid tribute to their dad to mark the 6th anniversary of his passing. The sisters shared an emotional post on Twitter, where they remembered him.

Posing in similar outfits, the duo were pictured with a bumped fist that had "Stuart Scott Legacy" inked on their arms. The sisters wrote that while they still feel his loss, many memories sustain them. They captioned the post:

"Dad liked to stick his tongue out and catch a tear before it lapped under his chin; he taught us to do the same and laugh at the accomplishment."


Reacting to the tweet, fans paid tribute to the late ESPN broadcaster, who many described as an inspiration to them with his commitment to putting smiles on the faces of people.

One fan commented that Scott was the best and ESPN has not been the same without him, while a second fan remarked that Scott would be proud of his daughter's efforts to keep his legacy.

In a recent post, Taelor and Sydni opened up on life with their famous dad.


Scott's daughters keep their father's memory alive by working with "The Stuart Scott Fund" in partnership with the V Foundation for Cancer Research.

Through the foundation, the siblings meet others who lost loved ones to cancer and strengthened them with love. By meeting people with similar experience, Scott's daughter has learned to handle their loss better.


While they are trying to keep his memory alive, the sisters revealed that their father believed he would defeat cancer, and so did they.

In a recent post, Taelor and Sydni opened up on life with their famous dad and revealed that despite his hectic schedule, he never would trade his time with them for anything. Family was a priority for him.

The sporting world mourned Scott's death, and leaders like former President Barack Obama tweeted that he would miss the late ESPN broadcaster.

Scott touched the lives of many and brought life to "Sports Center" with his innovative broadcasting approach. Although he has been gone for six years, his memory remains with his loved ones.
