Obituary

Harold A. Scott, Jr. of Troy died on September 20, 2021 at his home. Hal was born March 6, 1944, in High Point to the late Macy R. Scott and Harold A. Scott, Sr. and grew up in Star and then Troy. He is survived by his devoted family; his wife Carol of 51 years, daughter Lane and husband Damon Prince of Troy, sons Gray Scott of Benson and Scotty Scott of Annapolis, Maryland, sister Candy and husband Bill Carden of Kinsale, Virginia, and sister-in-law Frances Filer of Zillah, Washington. Grandchildren Cameron and Carson Prince and Madeline and Julia Scott loved their “GP”.

Hal served his country proudly as a decorated helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War before marrying Carol and returning to North Carolina. He was a third generation Coca Cola bottler which led to the formation of Central Carolina Vending Corp. and other businesses throughout his career.

He was extremely unselfish with his time by being a community advocate serving on a variety of boards and committees including several FirstHealth Hospital boards. He worked tirelessly to bring healthcare to the underserved rural community of Montgomery County and surrounding areas. The Save the Old School Committee in Biscoe also held a special place for Hal, and he was instrumental in its preservation which continues to serve the entire community today.

Hal was truly a man of the sky, land, and sea. With his love of flying, golfing, sailing, riding his motorcycle all over the country, traveling – especially to his favorite place on earth, Great Exuma, water skiing, and fly fishing; he enjoyed any adventure with his family and a host of life-long friends.

Hal’s family wishes to express their appreciation for the loving and compassionate care provided during his illness.

A private service will be held by the family.  A gathering of Hal’s family and friends will be held at a later date.

A gift in Hal’s memory can be made to FirstHealth Hospital Foundation – Montgomery Foundation Fund,  FirstHealth Hospice and Palliative Care, LiveWater Foundation, or the charity of your choice.
