He quickly moved up the ladder in the Banking world working for Security Pacific, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo is where he would end his career. He was a model employee as well as an amazing, boss/son/sibling/father/coach/role model in his personal life as well.

Donald Francis Scully Jr. Spent over 30 years supporting his wife, Matahom (Pearl) Scully, His daughter, Johanna Scully, his 2 sons Donald & Chris Scully, as well as hundreds potentially even thousands of lives overseas in the Philippines. Every life he touched was instantly changed for the better due to his generosity, loving and caring nature, and his general positive outlook on life.

In 2011 he was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of Adrenal Cancer. He underwent a procedure never before attempted at Stanford University where they removed a 19 lb tumor from his body.
