Scott Ervin

Philip Scott Ervin, 64, of Statesville, passed away Monday, June 7, 2021 at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

Born in Iredell County on April 9, 1957, he was the son of Farris Ervin and the late Lois Waugh Ervin.

In addition to his mother, he was also preceded in death by his brother, Craig Ervin.

Scott received his MBA at Gardner-Webb University and worked with UPS for over thirty-one years. He later worked with his father as Manager of Farris Ervin Enterprises in Troutman. He was an Eagle Scout; served as Scoutmaster of Troop #363 and served on the Eagle Board of the Gemstone District for many years.

In his earlier years, he was a member of Bethlehem United Methodist Church. Later, he became very active at Fairview Baptist Church, serving in many capacities. Scott had a huge heart and helping others gave him a sense of joy and purpose. He was relied upon and counted as a friend by many, embodying the spirit of a servant leader. He loved spending time on the water, gardening; his Volkswagen convertible, but most of all, he loved his family.

Those left to cherish his memory are his father, Farris Ervin; his wife of 40 years, Rebecca Mayberry Ervin; son, Philip Seth Ervin and wife Janet of Charlotte; daughter, Olivia Ervin Lenderman and husband, Matt, of Huntersville and two grandsons, Jack and Teddy Ervin.

I worked with Scott at UPS. He was a great partner and I always enjoyed his demeanor. We called Scott Swervin Ervin because of that little wild look In his eye captioned well in the photo and his unpredictable nature. He was always a great addition to any meeting or gathering. I was so sad to learn he had passed. I always knew Scott as a strong family man and a God fearing man who loved his wife and his family. You will be missed my friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all over the difficult days and times ahead. My deepest Sympathy.
