Our “Gentle Giant” Today we honor, show respect and remember Charlie Scott. On behalf of his Momma, Gail Scott, his siblings and their spouses, Betty Jo Delgado (MARTIN), Manuel Dean Scott (Tara), and Melissa Ann Templeton King (Roy), his 8 Nephews and Nieces and 10 Great-Nephews and Nieces...we thank you and welcome you.

The journey on earth began for Charles Lee Scott on November 17, 1972, in Brownfield, TEXAS. He prayed his final prayer at his earthly home, in Balch Springs, TEXAS. The Lord took his hand and lead him to his heavenly home, just a few days shy of his 48th Birthday on November 12, 2020.

Since childhood Charlie had a passion for Star Wars, Superhero’s, Wrestling and Collecting baseball cards and various things. He watched wrestling faithfully. One of the greatest highlights in his life, that was certain to bring on his big, crooked smile, was going to matches or watching wrestling on TV. He shared his enthusiasm with all his nephews and nieces. As children our Daddy and Momma took us to wrestling matches and it was a Sunday night ritual for all of us to gather round our television and watch bouts. As an adult, Daddy and Momma made sure they DVRed wrestling if he was working or not home. They shared and enjoyed his passion. When life seemed to have any of us down for the final three count, Charlie would tag in and find a way to brighten the day. The Stone Cold truth is...He was our families masked “Gentle Giant”. Charlie wore many “MASKS” in his lifetime...the one of the beloved Son, the one of our little-big Brother, the Uncle Charlie one, the adored Great-Uncle one and the one of the kind Friend. He was our WWE Champion... Worthy and Wonderful Excellent Entertainer Enjoyed greatly, Empathetic

Why was Charlie so enthusiastic about Star Wars? Perhaps he saw the ongoing battle between good and evil in the series, but associated it with his life in general. Charlie found the only way to prevail over evil was through Jesus and he made a profession of faith in his early years. Or perhaps he admired Chewbacca”s character...the loyalty, he didn’t say much, he was big and strong, fearless, and lovable. Charlie had many quality traits too....Caring, Humble, Affectionate, Resiliant, Loving, Imaginative, Easygoing Charlie’s big humorous personality shined bright like a Light Saber. He’d take on the bad forces and expel them with laughter. “As a family we all went out to eat at Lone Oak Cafe and a popular song came on. And what does Charlie do, he jumps up and starts singing and dancing “Do you think I’m sexy and you want my body...” Everyone laughed! Betty Jo tried to hide, Manuel and Missie were fighting over pancakes, Momma was laughin’ and Daddy was whippin’ off the belt.”

Charlie was devoted and dedicated to our parents in ways the rest of us haven’t been as their children. He was also a committed employee at O’RIELY WAREHOUSE for 19 years. His love and devotion is still evident today. He would want us to know all his burdens and hurting are behind him, don’t cry over his body because that isn’t him lying there. He is standing on the mountain with our Daddy now. The Lord took his hand and lead him home.

Let’s take a moment to shift our thoughts from how much we’ll miss Charlie to one of your own many funny, joking, laughing, happy and comical times that you shared with him....and there were many for all of us. So briefly...relive it...enjoy it again. Smile!

May the FORCE of the Lord be with you!

I have known Charles for most of our Oreilly career. He was such a sweet and caring person. We often talked about 🏈 scores on Monday mornings of who beat the Cowboys and how many Dr Peppers he won.Then of family. He loved his family fiercely. Especially his nieces and nephews. Those were some of my favorite conversations.
I use to share breaks and lunches with my maintenance buddies( Charles, Ed,Terry and Robert). It seemed like everytime a new version of their phone came out...they all got one and compared them to each other. I myself, think they were trying to see who could get the biggest phone screen. Those were some good times.
I miss seeing him, and the chats we would share.
Rest easy my friend and God bless.
