James Scott (Chip), 74 – of Mays Landing passed away Tuesday, February 17th 2021 at his home with his family by his side. Chip spent his youth in Northfield before moving to Mays Landing in 1982 where he raised his family. He graduated Mainland High School in 1964. He was a jet engine mechanic in the United States Air Force from 1965 to 1969. Following his discharge, he returned home and joined Local 322 Plumbers Union. He retired in 2002, then began working in the maintenance department of the Atlantic County Special Services School until 2017.

Son of the late William and Florence Scott, Chip will be forever missed by his daughters Courtney Humphrey (James) and Master Sergeant, Lauren Humphrey (Eric) as well as his very favorite people, his grandchildren Jimmy, Jayson, Eric, Madison, and Justin. He also leaves behind his sister-in-law, Sandra Scott, and brother-in-law Jack McCallum (Donna) as well as many other close family and friends. Chip is predeceased by his wife of 43 years, Pam McCallum Scott. Also preceding him in death was his son, Chad Scott, and brother William Scott.

Chip was a lifelong member of Local 322. He traveled to France several times, as well as to Italy, Germany, and other countries in Europe with his wife. Chip truly enjoyed golfing with his close friends and traveling as far as Ireland to enjoy new and different courses. But most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. He was a fixture at their sporting events and activities and always there to support them in everything they wanted to try. The lessons he passed down to them will be his legacy.

Services will be held at Boakes Funeral Home, 6050 Main St., Mays Landing, on Tuesday, February 23rd at 12pm. Friends may visit one hour prior to the service. Interment will be with his wife and son at Union Cemetery immediately following the service.

We enjoyed Pam and Chips company as good friends for so many years. Our hearts are filled with sorry for his loving family he leaves behind. We've traveled with Pam and Chip a number of times in Europe and have enjoyed many experiences together, along with countless good laughs. We will truly miss Chip. Rest in peace, our friend. I'll raise a "Mule" to Chip when we get back to NJ.
