Obituary of Junior Scott

December 23rd, 1963 our gracious God brought Junior Hugh Scott into this world. The second son of four born to Lola Scott who went to be with her Lord June 2016, he formed an indelible strand of a band of brothers known as the Scotts.

 

Growing up primarily in Harbour View of Kingston Jamaica, he was without doubt a recognizable member of the Scott clan; he had that signature winning smile and he was always full of life and laughter.  Some of his happiest moments were when he was enjoying a pickup game of football (soccer) with his brother Garcia, the McHarghs, the Scarletts, and others by what we call the "square", which is the intersection of Atoll Ave and Dorado Drive in Harbour View. Together with his brother Garcia he was a member of River Reef Football Club and Arantes Football Club both also in Harbour View; he played the part of a central striker on both teams.

 

As an athlete he is remembered as one of the sprinters to be reckoned with while at Kingston College and as to be expected he was a well-known and well-liked student at said school. The purple and white colors of KC ran strong in his blood! He was honored and proud to be part of such a storied institution of champions.

 

After emigrating to New York, he worked alongside his brothers Dave and Garcia for Winberry Sealcoating located on the north shore neighborhood of Greenlawn on Long Island. He became a skilled sealcoater enjoying not only spending his working hours with his brothers but discovering the many beautiful neighborhoods of the north shore of Long Island.

 

Every world cup soccer tournament he had more than enough to say about the countries involved but especially Brazil (apart from Jamaica of course) his favorite team and country. During this most recent World Cup he compared notes with his brother Garcia regarding the chances of Brazil making it to the final playoff.

 

Junior earned everything he had the hard way, and of which was okay with him.  Embedded in him is KCs' motto from its coat of arms "FORTIS CADERE CEDERE NON POTEST -- The brave may fall but never yield.  He may have fallen but that unyielding spirit that lived in Junior also lives in us. He is now where he always wanted to be; with his mother Lola and at peace. Until we see him yet again we all will miss him dearly!
