“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
~Revelation 1: 4
With humble submission to the will of God, we pause to pay tribute to the life, legacy and servitude of Cornell Stancell Scott, who was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. He was one who loved his family with all his heart, and not only nurtured his family, but enriched and empowered the lives of all he came in contact with.
Cornell, the son of the late Dennis Scott and Janie High Scott, was born on Saturday, December 19, 1953 in Northampton County, North Carolina. He was educated in the Northampton County School System; graduating from Gaston High School, class of 1972. Cornell was very talented and had a special gift for working with his hands; for which he was awarded a scholarship to the Art Institution of Atlanta, but was unable to attend after the sudden passing of his father. He became gainfully employed with Flambeau Airmold Corporation of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, where he worked for 38 years, as Lead Operator.
Early in life, Cornell accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Personal Savior and united in Christian fellowship with the Cool Spring Missionary Baptist Church, Gaston, North Carolina. He later faithfully attended Cedar Grove Baptist Church, Henrico, North Carolina in support of his son.
Cornell was a very private and quiet man. Although he didn’t talk very much, his words carried a lot of weight. He was a man of great wisdom and would often share it. He loved his family with all of his heart and enjoyed spending quality time with them. His favorite pastimes included caring for his immaculate lawn, wood working and cooking.
God in Heaven had a plan. For each sunset there’s a sunrise in a land we cannot see. There’s a place of love and purity that’s called eternity! On Sunday, October 10, 2021, Cornell was embraced in the arms of the Lord. No candles are even needed, for God provides the light. Our father knows what’s best for us, so why should we complain? He is now reunited with those who preceded him in death; his parents and sister, Gloria S. Foster.
We who remain struck by the bitter pain of death, but are assured by the promise of God; that He would wipe all tears from our eyes: loving wife of 43 years, Eunice Lee Vincent Scott of the home; son, Tyree Scott of the home; daughter, Lukishia S. Opiyo (Dennis) of Greensboro, North Carolina; grandchildren, Jamiya, Gerry, Jr. and Ahmad Smith; great-grandchild, Doryiana Smith all of Charlotte, North Carolina; sister, Hilda S. Squire (Alvin) of Gaston, North Carolina; aunt, Idelia High of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina; two sisters-in-law, Arlethia Drumgoole (Clarence) of Henrico, North Carolina and Latanya Wiggins of Maryland; two brothers-in-law, James Foster of Maryland and Stevie Jones (Leeann) of South Carolina; four nephew, Wesley Foster, Desmond, Todd and Marco Squire; a host of other relatives and friends.
