Ashley R. Scott
Aug. 3, 1975 – Oct. 24, 2020
Ashley Randolph Scott, 45, of Richmond, VA, passed away October 24, 2020 after a 19-month battle with cancer.
He was a loving father, husband, son and brother, and his passing leaves a gaping hole which will never be filled. Ashley was born August 3, 1975, into a Navy family in Jacksonville, FL. Through his youth the family lived in Nova Scotia, Canada; Virginia Beach; and Brunswick, ME, where he developed his love for fresh-caught lobsters. In 1991 the family returned to Virginia, settling in Hampton. After graduating from Hampton Roads Academy, Ashley headed west to Radford University, where he graduated with a BA in marketing in 1998. Shortly afterward, he signed on with Capital One in Richmond, where he recently celebrated his 20-year anniversary.
He was predeceased by his mother, Linn T. Scott, and is survived by his loving wife Amy Glover and daughter Lily; son Halsey; father R. Peter Scott of Hampton; brother Alexander Scott of Richmond; sister Mandy Scott of Berkeley, CA; father-in-law Chuck Glover of Chesterfield; mother-in-law Brenda Glover of Henrico; brother-in-law Jeremy Glover and wife Lacey of Chesterfield; brother-in-law Stephen Glover and wife Beth of Henrico; his brother from another mother Alexander White and wife Heather of New Kent; and a myriad of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was, quite simply, an amazing man. He was a generous and loyal friend, a hard worker and a selfless provider. He could often be found in his wood shop, where he had the right tool for any project, or in his boat on his favorite lake, teaching his son the intricacies of bass fishing. He loved playing soccer and following Manchester United, and was an avid outdoors man who enjoyed camping with his family. While his loss – far too soon – will be mourned deeply, his family and friends are forever grateful for the time we had with him.
A service will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30, at Affinity Funeral Service Richmond Chapel, 2720 Enterprise Parkway, Richmond, VA.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his honor to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.
So sorry to learn of the passing of Ashley. Ashley was a classmate of mine at Hampton Roads Academy and I have nothing but nice memories of him and his infectious smile. Sending my deepest condolences to his family and friends during this unbelievably sad time.
I worked with Ashley at Capital One and he will surely be missed. So sorry to hear of his passing and send my deepest regards to his family and friends. May God watch over him from now thru eternity.
Amy, I’m so sorry to hear about your husband and just wanted you to know that you have my condolences. I know there is nothing that can be said to ease your pain but you will forever be in my thoughts and prayers. Wishing you comfort during this difficult time, and my deepest sympathies go to you and your family “If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them.” – James O’Barr
Shly! was one of the kindest people I knew, and allowed for a friendship with one of the best families I have known. My heart is with you all, Alex, Alex, Mandy, and Peter. Amy, love and light to you, Halsey, and Lily.
Hi, we are friends of Mandy from California. We never met Ashely, but we know what an exceptional friend Mandy is. She’s told us what a great older brother Ashely always was for her, so in that way we are grateful to Ashley. Instead of flowers we donated to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance in hopes that we have more time with the very special people in our lives. Our thoughts are with your family, Bonnie, Dan, Dan, Dave, Lieza, and Sachel.
I’m very sorry to learn of Ashley passing. I was fortunate to have known and worked with him at Capital One. My condolences to his entire family during this very sad time.
The Ashley I remember was a charming, handsome 17 year-old. He had a smile that made you feel like you were in the right place, at the right time, with the right people. Ashley loved his car and he was always down for a drive with his friends. He was loyal and kind, and one hell of a good guy. I’m grateful to have known him. Love and peace to the family.
I offer my late condolences to the Scott family. I went to high school with Ashley and by far one of the most impressive things I ever saw was he willed himself to learn the game of hockey. despite just learning to skate. Most kids learn at age 3-5 but he did it much later. Just gutted it out and stuck with it. And was the happiest kid on our team to be on the ice. I have a great memory of my dad driving Ashley and myself up to the augusta ice rink in a blizzard for a game. He was a genuine good guy
