On Wednesday, September 5, 2018, Jeffery Wayne Scott Sr., a loving husband, father, son, and friend, passed away in Houston, Texas, at the age of 59.

Jeff was born on November 18, 1958, to Bill and Joanna Scott in Fort Worth, Texas. At the early age of 17, Jeff joined the United States Navy, where he proudly served our country. Shortly after his time served in the Navy, he met the love of his life Karen at Uncle Sam’s in Houston, Texas. In 1980, they were married and started their family. Together they welcomed two children, Jeffery Wayne Scott Jr. and Gina Michelle Scott. In April of 1986, Jeff moved his family to Spring, Texas where they created many memories and raised their children.

Jeff had many accomplishments within his lifetime, but one he was most proud of was becoming an ordained minister, and served many years as a youth minister at Woodglen Baptist Church and Northwoods Baptist Church. Jeff was known for his keen ability to make everyone laugh, his hard work ethic, and generosity. Jeff was also an avid Texans fan, and he love playing Fantasy Football. In the 15 years he participated in the AFFL Fantasy League he won 4 championships earning him a trophy that he proudly displayed on his mantel. Overall Jeff’s greatest accomplishment was his family. Jeff’s number one priority was always God, but next to that was his family and memories made together.

My love!!!! You will forever be in our hearts!!! You made all of my dreams come true. You knew that all I ever dreamed of being was a wife, mother, and grandmother and you made every sacrifice so that dream was possible. I will forever miss hearing you tell me how much you love me and how much you appreciated everything I did for you. You loved your family hard but your love for God was so on fire!!! God gave you such a gift for spreading the gospel and for working with the youth. I know you treasured your time with the youth. We all miss you terribly but we know you are no longer suffering and you are home with Jesus now!! Your memories will always live on through our children and our grandbabies and, again, you will forever be in our hearts!!! I love you so, so much!!!

I'm missing this man tonight. He treated me like a son not a son in law. I never erase my text and I looked at our text tonight we had some great conversations. I remember when I asked for his daughter's hand in marriage, he said " I think you two are a good thing" . I have never been so nervous in my life than when I had that talk with him. I will miss you Pappy I have learned a lot from you and you will always be with me. Thank you I will do my best to make you proud and make sure your family is taken care of.

Oh Pappy, where do I start! I have so many fond memories of you, many spent laughing. Making everyone laugh came so easily for you- it was a gift. One memory that always makes me smile was when Jeff Jr. and I were getting married- you asked me if I liked to cook. My reply, “Well, I can cook, but no I do not like to...” He looked at me in shock and told Jeff Jr. to run! We all laughed so hard, and try as I may- I still don’t like to cook! Even though I never came around in that department you never missed an opportunity to lift me up and tell me how smart I was, something I will remember forever and always do my best to make you proud. There is not a page long enough to reminisce over our time together, but all that I have I will cherish the rest of my life. You were a good man, devoted husband, loving father, and #1 Pappy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for raising a good man that is now my husband and an amazing father to our children. We will keep your memory alive and present for our children and hope you will watch over and guide them through all of life’s great events. We could not ask for a better guardian angel. Rest In Peace, we love you and miss you.

One of my fondest memories was a time that Mr. Scott visited Shannon while she was in the hospital recovering. My husband of 28 years and I had newly separated. It was a dark time for Shan and I both. He came in with Magazines and nightgowns for her. I was so touched by his thoughtfulness. He did not stop there, he asked if he could pray with us. I was moved beyond words and comforted during such a troubling time. I don’t think he ever knew what his kindness meant to me, but he did not do it for thanks or appreciation he did because he was moved to do so. He loved my daughter and for that I will always be grateful. Welcome home Pappy...I can only imagine what your eyes see.

Dad, you have always provided guidance, love, and an uplifting spirit. Your were the strongest man I ever knew. I wouldn't be the man I am today without you. You always put family first and provided everything we needed to succeed in life. I will always miss you but you will forever be in our hearts. I was truly blessed to be able to call you my father.

So sorry to hear about Jeff. I remember all those Woodglen Baptist Church men’s fishing trip up to Sam Rayburn lake. He was such an active part of those times and brought a lot of joy and laughter with him
