Scott WilcoxOctober 16, 1955 ~ December 13, 2017 (age 62)
On Wednesday, 12/13/17, Scott Wilcox, 62, died peacefully at home. While Scott was born and raised in Indianapolis, he looked upon Arizona as his second home. He attended both North Central High School, and Camelback High in Phoenix, followed by Indiana University where he was a member of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity.
Scott was the beloved son of Betty Wilcox and Howard S. Wilcox. He is survived by two brothers, Donald and David, nephews Kevin and Brian, a niece Michelle Wilcox Boulden and sister in law, Mary Wilcox. He was preceded in death by his parents Betty and Howard S. Wilcox, and a brother, Howard S. Wilcox Jr.
Professionally, Scott worked with A.H. M. Graves Realty and Re/Max Realty in residential home sales, followed by many years as a full-time real estate investor and landlord. While real estate was Scott’s chosen profession, his most notable contribution was that of a loving, selfless care giver to his parents, Betty and Howdy, in their later years. Scott was a trivia expert on the Indianapolis 500, which his grandfather, Howard S. Wilcox, Sr., won in 1919.
The family would like to extend a very special thank you to Ortho Indy, and also to Scott’s partner, Carolyn Mills, for their wonderful care and concern after an extremely complicated surgery this past August. After 34 proud years of sobriety, Scott also spent countless hours counseling fellow members of AA.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Carvel Club, 4627 Carvel Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46205. In Scott’s fond memory, there will be a private family gathering in January, followed by a celebration of his life later next year. Scott’s great humor will be forever missed by all of his family and friends, who cherish his memory.
