Another familiar figure who contributed greatly to Scott County's business community for nearly four decades died recently.

Raymond “Ray” Swope Jr., 92, died at Scott Memorial Hospital in Scottsburg on Tuesday, October 4.

He wasn't Scott County born, but many people remember his accounting firm which served plenty of individuals and businesses around the area.

Ray was a native of Lebanon and graduated high school there in 1941, just in time to see action in World War II. He came out of that conflict as a U.S. Marine with a Purple Heart.

Setting up his business in Scottsburg, Ray soon became involved in all sorts of community activities. He started serving in the 1950s as a member of the original Scott County Hospital Board of Directors, and he gave many years of service through organizations, such as the Scottsburg Lions Club, Seymour Elks Club and Scottsburgh Lodge 572, F&AM. Ray also served as a director of the Scottsburg Building and Loan Association. He was a great supporter of local sports teams, and he sure loved to attend both football and basketball games at his beloved Indiana University in Bloomington, where he had earned his bachelor degree after the war.

He was also an avid golfer, going on trips with friends or sticking close to home at Westwood Golf Course.

In later years, he could be found most days eating lunch at Hancock's Drugstore and enjoying the banter of conversation with servers and customers alike. And, most often, he'd come in with an IU jacket or sweater on, an IU ballcap on his head. He always had a big smile ready for whomever he met.

His family members gathered at the Collins Funeral Home in Scottsburg on Friday, October 7, to visit with friends. The funeral was conducted on Saturday, October 8, at the funeral home. Father Patrick Click officiated.

Burial was in Scottsburg Cemetery.
