October 16, 2003

Scott A. Hax, a manager for a family-owned courier business, died of brain cancer Oct. 9 at his Rosedale home. He was 37.

Mr. Hax was born in Baltimore and raised on Hillburn Avenue in Hamilton. He was a 1984 graduate of Polytechnic Institute, and played fullback on its varsity football team.

He attended what is now Towson University, and worked in the drafting department of Poole & Kent Co., mechanical contractors. He left in the late 1980s to work for R.A.H. Courier Inc. For several years, he worked for air cargo firms at Baltimore-Washington International Airport before returning in 2001 as a manager at R.A.H.

Mr. Hax's brain cancer was diagnosed five years ago, family members said.

He was an avid football and baseball fan, and enjoyed singing country-western music.

Mr. Hax was an active member of Mount Oak United Methodist Church in Bowie, where he served in the men's ministry and youth fellowship. He also volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and coached youth football and baseball for the Bowie Recreation Council.

Services were Tuesday.

Mr. Hax is survived by a son, Connor Hax, and daughter, Jordan Hax, both of Bowie; his parents, Elsie and Richard A. Hax Sr. of Rosedale; two brothers, Duane Hax of Thomasville, Pa., and Richard A. Hax Jr. of Camp Hill, Pa.; and a sister, Candace Cole of Rosedale. His marriage to the former Kelly Cravener ended in divorce.
