Scott's family says that he fought a gallant fight against the disease that claimed his life, playing golf and bowling within weeks of his death. He was a fighter and a hero. A memorial service, followed by a police ceremony, will be held on Sept. 27 at 10 am at the Christ Episcopal Church, 76 Franklin Ave., Staten Island.
