Following his time in the military, he worked in a variety of occupations, the most recent being as a code enforcement officer with the city of Jacksonville, Florida. Scott had a kind, warm, and playful personality, and was loved by many. He was nicknamed “The Mayor” by a close friend because he shook the hand of everyone he met. Scott never met a stranger. Alongside his wife, he served as a church greeter at Deermeadows Baptist Church. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, going to the movies, participating in church activities, and woodworking. Scott loved his pets too.

Scott was a gentle giant and always pleasant and he was this way from the very first day I met him at Winn Dixie. I will forever remember Scott and how he treated me and how much he loved everyone. A stranger was never considered a stranger around Scott. MAY YOU REST FROM YOUR LABOR and SLEEP IN PEACE WITH THE MASTER OF CREATION FOREVER.

You will forever be missed Scottie!!!!!

Scotty was awesome. Angie - you and he really touched my heart when you came out to support my battle with breast cancer. Kevyn always had good things to say about Scotty and they often laughed together. God certainly gained an awesome angel. I know he touched many lives and also know how much he already is missed and will be missed. Our prayers are with you through this awful time.

When we first visited Deermeadows Baptist Church, Scotty was the first person to greet us. We were so amazed by his friendliness and welcoming spirit that we came back the next Sunday. The response from Scotty was the same.
We loved his big smile and how he made everyone feel welcomed.
Praying for Angie and family during this time!
