PEKIN ~ LD Scott, 90 of Pekin, passed away at home and joined his Lord in Heaven at 5:25 p.m. Thursday, May 27, 2021.

He was born May 19, 1931 at Hackleburg, Alabama to Domer and Lizzie (Gentry) Scott. He was one of twelve children born to the Scott family. LD met the love of his life, Lucy Irene Raper, while working in rural Alabama, asked to walk her home and the two married on February 16, 1949. LD left Alabama in pursuit of work and landed in Illinois, working at Corn Products Company (CPC) for 38 years. Although he resided in Illinois for most of his life, he never lost his Southern accent and charm. He had a quick wit, sense of humor and baby blue eyes, qualities that were endearing to his family, friends, and nurses up until his last day.

LD loved telling stories of a simpler, yet hard life in Alabama. He grew up hunting and gardening as a way to provide for his family as a boy and later in life enjoyed these activities with his children and grandchildren. It was rare for visitors to leave the Scott home without some kind of canned goods from the garden. He could play the guitar and sing, often harmonizing with Irene by his side. He was an avid Alabama Crimson Tide fan and loved watching Pekin Dragons football. Over the years, he spent a lot of time cheering for his grandkids and great-grandkids at their sporting events.

He is survived by five children, Linda Sue (Jim) Fletcher, Phillip (Melody) Scott, Debbie (Randy) Benton, Donna (Bob) Reiling, and Karen (Chris) Lewis, all of Pekin; twelve grandchildren, Jimmy Render, Jake (Tammy) Fletcher, Jeff (Laura) Render, Greg (Jen) Render, Erin (Bruce) Killen, Todd (Sara) Benton, Erika (Matt) Reeb, Elisha (Eric) Swanson, Sonya (Greg) Canary, Zach Reiling, Cory (Ashley) Scott, and Kelsey (Andy) Lewis; twenty-three great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandson and a sister, Verdell (Ronnie) Hudson of Tyler, Texas.

LD is preceded in death by his parents; his loving wife who passed away on September 28, 2017; one daughter-in-law, Jo Ann Scott; one grandson, Brandon Scott Newcomb; one granddaughter, Melinda Holmes; five brothers and five sisters.

He was a member of Grace Baptist Church in Pekin for more than 60 years, where he formerly served as a trustee.

A celebration of life memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 5, 2021 at Grace Baptist Church in Pekin. Pastor Randy Justus will officiate. A time of fellowship and sharing will follow the service at the church. His graveside service will be at 11 a.m. Friday, June 4, 2021 at Glendale Memorial Gardens in Pekin. Arrangements have been entrusted to Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory in Pekin.

His family would like to express a special thank you to his OSF Hospice nurses for their care and compassion.

Memorial contributions may be made to Grace Baptist Church, 1301 South 14th Street, Pekin, Illinois 61554.
