John Joseph "Jack" Scollay Obituary
Scollay John Joseph "Jack" Scollay, age 88 of Westerville, passed away Monday, October 14, 2013. Jack was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, only child of the late John and Agnes Scollay. After high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and served in World War II and the Korean War, earning the rank of Captain. As a Marine, he received Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Colgate University where he honed his writing skills. Years later, advertising copywriters would experience firsthand his passion for precise language and his expectations of the same from them. Jack retired as Senior VP of Marketing for the J. Walter Thompson Advertising Agency. While there, he continued his service to the Corps by authoring the advertising campaign: "The Few. The Proud. The Marines." Following his JWT retirement, Jack taught at Syracuse University's Newhouse School. An avid Anglophile, he enjoyed travels to the United Kingdom with family and friends. Jack will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 57 years, Ann Scollay; daughters, Mary (Jim) Ward and Joan (Bill) Dooley; and cousin, Sister Constance Brennan. Jack's colorful personality and quick, dry wit left a lasting impression on Ann's extended family, his colleagues, and friends. He will be missed by many. The family wishes to thank the caregivers at Feridean Commons for their compassion and generous hearts. Graveside memorial services will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, October 25, 2013 at Walnut Grove Cemetery, 5561 Milton Ave., Worthington. Arrangements by SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Semper Fi Fund (www.semperfifund.org). To share memories or condolences, please visit www.schoedinger.com.
