George Scott Farmer

February 19, 1969September 12, 2020

Scott was a native Athenian who loved his City, Country and Family.

He was a 1987 graduate of Cedar Shoals High School and attended DeVry University. After years in the Technology field, his Entrepreneurial spirit led him to open All Stars Carpet Cleaning, which he owned and operated until his health caused him to retire. He and his father then started Farm Boy Properties, renovating, buying and selling Real Estate properties. He loved being of service to others and was always willing to lend a helping hand. In the last few years, he suffered from numerous Auto Immune diseases and had fought a long and courageous battle.

Unfortunately, Scott’s pain became unbearable, and he ended his anguish and life September 12, 2020. He will always be remembered for the love, laughter and affection he showed to all. His kindness and generosity will live in our hearts forever.

He is survived by his parents, Mary Sue and Jimmy Farmer; his adoring sister, Deidre (Dede) Farmer; his favorite nieces, Hailey and Mallory Sailors; great-nephew, Rhett Drahms; an uncle, Jerry (Louise) Farmer and cousin, Jeris Farmer, all of Athens; and a host of other relatives and friends that he loved dearly.

Our hearts feel heavy with grief, and we will lighten the pain with memories of the life and love we have shared.

In light of the recent worldwide occurrences dealing with the outbreak of COVID-19, and two fragile, aging parents the family will have no visitation and burial services will be reserved for immediate family.

A private graveside service will be held at New Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery in Nicholson with Rev. Crist Camden officiating.

Online condolences may be offered at www.BernsteinFuneralHome.com.

Bernstein Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

I was so sad to learn of Scott’s passing. He was truly one of the nicest guys I ever met. I first got to know him through his carpet cleaning business but would talk to him from time to time after he became sick and sold the business. What a great loss to his family and this community. My sincere condolences.

I haven't seen Scott in the last few years but the last time I saw him was getting breakfast biscuits. He was just as I always remember him, a big smile on his face and projecting true good humor. I felt then, as I did almost every time I saw him, that the day was going to be better than I thought before seeing him.

With Scott's loss, we are certainly a poorer city.

My sincere condolences to his family and other friends.

An all American who loved his country. Someone who told it like it was and didn’t really care who liked it or not. A man who always gave a helping hand to anyone in need. A teacher to many, especially me. A giving person who always wanted to make sure kids got the absolute coolest gifts. A man who loved his family with every ounce of his being. He was the coolest guy ever in my mind and I will never ever forget all of our fun memories. Rest In Peace George Scott. Your baby cousin misses you so much.

I am so sorry and sad. Scott felt so bad for so long, but always had a smile and a good word. He rallied for my visits and did what he could to make them fun. God Bless you both and dear Scott, I’ll miss him.
