Lewis (JayR) Renard Scott, Jr., 41, earned his heavenly wings on August 30, 2020 at Orange Park Medical Center in Orange Park, FL. Lewis was born to Lewis and Annie Scott (Thomas), Sr. on March 5, 1979 in East St. Louis, IL. He met the love of his life, Raffy Scott, on his 21st birthday in Cahokia, IL and they married on August 23, 2008 where their deep love for each other continues forever and always.

Lewis attended schools in East St. Louis and Collinsville, IL where he was a top honor student, participated in Upward Bound, played football and a variety of other activities. He graduated from Collinsville High School, Sanford Brown College for Computer Support and Florida College of Natural Health for Massage Therapy. He held numerous jobs beginning when he was just 15 years old at Shoney’s in Collinsville, IL through his position as a Kitchen Manager with TGI Friday’s in Orange Park, FL where he enjoyed his work and the people he worked with, even more for eight years. He truly put his heart into being the best Manager he could be.

Lewis was an inspiration to everyone he came in contact with. His infectious smile, his huge heart, his devotion to his close-knit family and friends and his outlook on life was truly motivating and made him highly revered by all. He truly cared for humankind and was the least judgmental Man anyone could ever meet. He was always the life of the party and his sense of humor was captivating. He lit up a room and wanted everyone to live their best life.

Lewis was always a spiritual soul and was passionate about Christ. He believed in forgiveness and salvation and is now walking the streets of gold with his Savior, Son and family.

He is survived by his Wife, Raffy Scott, Daughter, Karribian Scott, Son, Anderson Scott, Grandson, Aquarius Lowman (all of Jacksonville, FL), Mother, Annie Thomas, Father, Lewis Scott, Sr., Step-Father, Jerry Thomas, Sr., Brothers, Jerry Thomas, Jr. and Corey Thomas, Sister, Lakeydra Scott, Step-Sister, Tracy Ratcliff, Bonus Daughter, Richante Hickman (all of East St. Louis, IL), Mother-in-law, Pamela Duvall (Dan), Father-in-law, Gary Anderson (Sherry), Sister-in-laws, Afton Anderson and Ashley Anderson (all of Leitchfield, KY), three nieces, six nephews, as well as a host of Aunts, Uncles, and 5 generations of cousins.

Hey brother,
I never thought this would happen and it shouldn't have happened. I saw you just weeks ago. I miss ya man, you lived two blocks down the road. I took my walks to calm myself from work as you know and always saw you on my walks. I don't go on those walks very frequently anymore. Hey, your with God now, nothing will go wrong. I know your looking down saying, I got you brotha!!! And where's my bike you promised me lol, you know what I mean!! I'll be by the house to pick it up...if your family needs anything....I'm here.

Love you man,

Ryan

Only God Knows the day and the hour. I remember Lewis being that different guy. Yes he was different...A Good difference. Lewis was goofy and his smile made you laugh even if it wasn't anything funny at all. You were indeed going to have some fun hanging with Lewis. You felt safe around him. Lewis was respected for who he was and that is why we are sad to hear him leaving us behind. I say Fairwell Dear Friend Job Welldone...Thank you for being an example to us. 💖
