Obituary for Colonel Earl B. "Scot" Roehm (USAF Retired)

Colonel Earl B. “Scot” Roehm (USAF retired) passed away on September 1, 2019.

Earl B. “Scot” Roehm was born on May 6, 1929, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Scot joined the military while still a teenager. Enlisting as a private, he worked his way up to become a Colonel in the U.S. Air Force before retiring after 30 years. He flew missions during both the Korean and Vietnam wars, and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and various other air medals. He later received the Department of Defense Superior Service Medal and the Legion of Merit with Oak Leaf Cluster, as well as more than twenty-five other medals and awards.

Colonel Roehm was a graduate of the Air War College, the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Maryland, the City Colleges of Chicago, and Harvard University, where he earned his MBA.

After retiring from the Air Force, he became the Executive Vice-President for Dixie Seal & Stamp, the largest manufacturer of license plates in the country. He held this position for more than 30 years. He was a Mason, Past-President of the Specialty Advertising Association of Georgia, and on the Board of Directors of the Atlanta Pops Orchestra. Scot was a warrior of the greatest kind, gentle of heart, great at satire and humor. He was an artist whose paintings inspired, and a man with great wisdom.

He is survived by his loving wife of 27 years, Nancy J. Roehm; his daughter Lee Anne Brill, son-in-law Dave Brill, and grandchildren Devon, Damon, and Deanna, and eight great-grandchildren; his son Scot A. Roehm, daughter-in-law Melissa Roehm, and granddaughter Sarah; and his step-children Glenn Bailey and wife Laura, Laurie Ecke and husband Skip; grandchildren, Walter Ecke, Daniel Ecke, Rachel Lawley, Meg Jett and husband Lowell, and grandchildren, Douglas MacKenzie, James Conner, Scott Conner and Bill Bailey; as well as several great-grandchildren.

He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, (known as Paw Paw, Grandpa and Grandpa Scot) and great-grandfather of a large and caring family, who will miss him very much. Although we are filled with grief, we are filled with exultation to have the privilege of knowing and loving him.
