Roy F Scott Jr., 68, transitioned from his life on Thursday, December 6; 2018, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born on April 21, 1950 in Columbus, Ohio, he was the 2nd child born to the union of Roy F. Scott, Sr. and Reida E. Frey. A lifelong resident of Columbus, Roy was raised in the tightly knit community, known as “American Addition”. He was educated within the Columbus Public School system, graduating from North High School.

Roy entered the U.S. Armed forces and served in Army’s “173rd” Airborne (Sky Soldier), fighting during the Vietnam Conflict and Desert Storm, earning and becoming a recipient of the “Bronze Star”.

During his career, he held various positions, including assignments in Patrol, Vice, Public Records and Homicide, as well as serving as a Grievance Rep. for the Fraternal Order of Police.

May the Family find some comfort with the words of Jesus Christ that he spoke in the hearing of the people of his day, concerning a future promise, he will fulfill and its found in John 5:28,29 which says: Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs "Or in Gods memory" will hear his "Jesus Christ" voice and come out, to a resurrection to life. And yet there is another promise of Gods that has to do with being able to wrap your arms around him again and it is found in the Bible book of Psalm 37:29 which says: The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it. So may these words bring a lasting effect to your hearts to help each of you to see Gods saving power thru His Kingdom rule in the hands of Jesus Christ. So go to to find many other comforting words of Hope about the future just ahead of us.

We first met Roy through our jewelry store in downtown Columbus. He definitely made you smile and many times laugh. He cared about his military family, his fellow police officers, and his family. He will be sadly missed. May God bring you a special peace and comfort now and throughout this difficult time.

My sincerest condolences to the Scott family. It's been many years since we worked together on 12 precinct my friend. You and Waymon were a pair that we all looked up too. Our times working together are some of my most vivid memories from our time at CPD. I'm proud to have called you a friend and you will be missed.
