Christopher Scott Obituary

Christopher Remington Scott, 38, died unexpectedly at Moses Cone Hospital on October 18, 2023. He was born June 23, 1985, in High Point, NC, the son of Eugene Christopher and Arnetta Quick Scott.

Christopher graduated from T. Wingate Andrews High School Class of 2004. Following graduation, he attended North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Christopher (REM) was part of a Blue & Gold Marching Machine member, "Cold Steel" Drumline. The drumline line was called Rebirth of Steel; his line name was Iceberg from 2004 to 2006. His love of the drums comes from being mesmerized at Williams Memorial Church, where he was a member while watching Tommy Spencer play the drums for the RJW Choir. Tommy taught Rem to play the drum at the age of eleven. He was a member of the RJW Choir; he also played for the Children's Choir and played for the Male Chorus. He stepped with the Stepping Stones Step Team. Rem was also a graduate of the Higher Learning Institute (HLI) of Williams Memorial.

He played football at Welborn Middle School from 1998 to 2000 and one season at Andrews High School in 2001. He declared to his mom his football career was over. Rem became upset because the Red Raiders, being undefeated, lost one game. Rem told his mom that he did not want to play football anymore after the loss and was going to join the band. His mom told him that sometimes you lose; in order to win, you can't win all the time. Rem still did not want to play football, and the love of drumming came into play. He played the drums for Andrews High School from 2001-2004. After graduating from high school, he tried out for the NCATSU marching band, and on the first try of his audition, Christopher R. Scott became a member of Cold Steel. He played for the Blue and Gold Marching Machine from 2004 to 2006. "AGGIE PRIDE" He was employed at O’Reilly Auto Parts as a driver. He enjoyed playing video games with family and friends, dominating whatever he played. He was very humorous, cheerful, and high-spirited keeping the players laughing and connected. Rem was very good at technology, like his father, Chris.
