Serving the Community Since 1960

Memorial Service: 11:00 a.m., Saturday, January 23, 2021

Location: Emanuel Lutheran Church, Hampton

Roland “Roro” Herbert Scattschneider, 91, passed on January 13, 2021. He was a native of Dent, Michigan. He proudly served 20 years in the U.S. Air Force. He worked for Newport News Shipbuilding as a supervisor for 16 years. Following his retirement, he became an avid volunteer. He delivered Meals on Wheels. When a hurricane or disaster struck, he was known to pack a bag and head towards the relief effort on his own accord. He was a volunteer for the Hampton Clean City Commission where he received many citations. He “Adopted a Spot” from the commission on Fox Hill Road.  After counting cigarette butts- 269,611 in total, he wrote a book called “No Butts About It”. He wrote this book for school age kids to learn the hazards of cigarette smoking both on their bodies and the ecosystem.

RoRo was a devout member of Emanuel Lutheran Church in Hampton. He was the first to get there and the last to leave; ushering for 15 years without missing a Sunday.

RoRo was preceded in death by his wife, Freda Schroeder. He is survived by his nephew, Hal D. Slolinger (Rosa) of FL; his adopted family of 15 years, John Wesley Boyd (Marie), Kristina Boyd (Ben), Elizabeth Boyd Collado (Miguel) and Meredith Boyd McDaniel (Caleb) and 3 great-grandchildren, Sophia, Gray and Miles.

The family would like to thank the Mennowood Retirement Home, Grace Hospice, Dr.  Charlotte Moore, his best friend, and the members of Emanuel Lutheran Church for all the love and care they provided.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 23, 2021 at Emanuel Lutheran Church. Burial will be at a later date at Arlington National Cemetery with Military Honors.  Memorial donations can be made to the Hampton Roads Good Samaritan Fund, P.O. Box 298, Lenexa, VA 23089.
