Christopher Scott Sizemore

February 1, 1963July 1, 2018

SIZEMORE, Christopher “Scott," 55, of Atlanta, GA, passed away unexpectedly while on a family vacation in Vail, Colorado, on July 1, 2018.

Scott’s greatest priority was his family. He was a loving husband, and proud father, above all else. It was his love of spending time with his children, that led him to discover a passion for coaching; first, coaching his son’s baseball teams at NYO in Buckhead, then changing to softball to coach his daughter at NYO and the Atlanta Flames. Scott later transitioned to coaching at the middle school level for Holy Innocents Episcopal School and North Atlanta High School.

Scott was the owner of a successful home remodeling business, QMR, Inc., where he developed a loyal clientele for over thirty years, many of whom became friends, because of his dedication and integrity.

Scott will be remembered for his contagious & sweet smile, his patience & calming spirit, his good advice both personally & professionally, the kindest of hearts, his amazing coaching abilities, and the happiness that he brought to the lives of those who were lucky enough to have crossed his path.

Surviving family members include his loving and devoted wife of 28 years, Denee “Dee Dee”; son, Garrett; daughter, Grace; mother-in-law, Dana Falls; father, Charles W. Sizemore (Elizabeth); mother, Birdie Hill (Ed); brother, Charles W. Sizemore, Jr. (Gaylynn); sister, Connie Gutierrez (Albert); brothers, Terry Blackburn, Rodney Hill, and Breck Hill; sister, Debra Dobbins; nephew, Chase Sizemore (Hilary), and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

Celebration of Life Service will be held at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church, 3180 Peachtree Rd NW, Atlanta, GA, on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, at 2:00 P.M. Reception immediately following service in Grace Hall.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to PRUMC or PAWS Atlanta.

I went to North Fulton High School with Scott and he was the kindest, dearest, and most patient friend. I have wonderful memories of Scott and was so sad to hear of his passing. I will keep his children, wife, and extended family in my prayers. In our senior year I wanted to go to Mrs. Pringle's church in SW Atlanta and he volunteered to go with me. She was one of our favorite teachers at NFHS and Scott had torn up his knee at football, but still escorted me to her church on crutches. We were the only white people out of a congregation of about 500 people, but he didn't care. It was their 65th Revival and the service went almost 3 hours! Scott just sat with a smile on his face. What a wonderful, gentle person he was and I know all of us who knew him were blessed to have him a part of our time on this earth. Prayers and peace to the family. Jolee Rogers Benoit

Sending my sincere condolences to the family. Scott was one of the nicest humans I've met. I enjoyed his coaching my daughter at HIES and the time she spent playing with Grace. His tributes are evidence of the profound, positive effect he had on so many.

Oh how I wish I had a personal memory of Scott to share. I don't recall ever reading so many wonderful tributes. Scott's mother-in-law Dana is the best friend one can have, and so I feel like a bit of Scott is showing in her. She and I spoke often of my having a chance to meet her family, and I am deeply saddened that opportunity never materialized. Now, I am also saddened to finally meet his family under these circumstances; however, doing so will make my prayers for them even more meaningful. God bless Scott's entire family. Healing will be slow, but it WILL happen.

My heartfelt prayers to all of Scott’s family. . While it’s been many years, Scott , was my sons coach at NYO when they were 4/5 years old. We had a great team and he was such a part of making my sons love baseball. He was just a great coach and a fantastic person. While words can say so much; know that your family is in my deepest prayers.

On behalf of the NAHS Lady Warriors Softball team, we want to express our deepest sympathies. Coach Scott was a significant part of our team and a loyal and dedicated mentor. He was well loved and respected. He had great character, a big heart, and a big hat. :) He will be deeply missed.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Sizemore family.

We met Scott on the NYO baseball field when our boys were very young and impressionable. He not only taught/coached the sport of baseball but also mentored them on sportsmanship and life. He was very approachable to the boys and always had a kind word of encouragement when the bat went cold, made an error, or they lost a game. Through the years our boys continued to be friends and I would see Scott and Denee at different events at Holy Innocents’. They were always friendly, open, and kind; a real pleasure to be around. We will remember his kind heart and huge smile always upbeat and uplifting. We will miss you and remember you fondly. Our thoughts and prayers are with Denee, Scott, Grace, and all his family. Rest in peace my friend.

How shocked and saddened we were when we heard Scott, our nephew, had died. We only have good memories of him and know heaven was happy to receive him. The good he has done here on earth has made it a better place and we thank the Lord for sharing him for 55 years. Prayers are going up for parents, wife, children, brothers and sisters, nephews, nieces and the other family and friends. So many lives touched and saddened at this time.

I met Scott over 3 decades ago when I was getting a quote to have my basement overhauled. He and the other fellow listened to what I wanted, nodded, took notes and left. It was a shock when Scott called to tell me the man had passed away in a car accident. I said, well. Can you do this job then? I don't think he said anything for about 15 seconds. Then he said well yeah. I said ok then, let's get this done. And he did it. And he did the next job I asked for, and the next and the next. I didn't buy a house without him looking it over. Every person I recommended him to loved him. He made our homes better. He listened to what the homeowner wanted. His team was always the best. He always had a cute story about the loves of his life - Denee, Garrett and Grace. One day I was in the kitchen with Scott and a stray dog came up to the back door. Scott said that Denee would bring that dog in and cook him some eggs. Garrett school stories and Grace fashion trends. I look at my condo and see the work Scott did here right now. I will miss my old soldier. I miss you Scott. I am so sorry he is gone. I reallly am.
