Scotty farmed all his life with his dad, Lyman; brothers, Craig and Mark; son, Frank; nephews, Nick, Jason, Travis, Rocky, and Sam. His passion was planting corn and combining. He loved driving around looking at crops with his wife, Karen, and his dog, Major. His hobbies were riding motorcycles with his son, family, and friends, mowing roadsides, and cutting trees down around his fields. Scotty enjoyed at the end of harvest and planting work, where friends and family would join together at the shop to shoot the s___! He was always figuring a way to “supe” up the tractors, trucks, and motorcycles to get more power out of them. He took pride in keeping the farm clean and well kept and the machinery waxed and in the barn. But most of all, Scotty was very proud of his family and friends and was always willing to help them, no matter what!

Mr. Hitchcock let my spouse and me ride in the cab of his big tractor with tank-like treads when he was plowing our field several years ago. He was very nice and we enjoyed meeting him. I was shocked to see his face on the front of the little Williamston newspaper, in an article about the accident. We are both very saddened by his untimely death and send virtual hugs to the family.

Uncle Scotty, you are greatly missed! Memories of you will always be cherished and I will never forget the guidance you gave us your nieces and nephews. All I can think of is you looking down from the Heaven above still guiding us but now you're a guiding angel shining light down on us!

"If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again!"

Uncle Scotty was an amazing person. He always had a great smile on his face everytime he would see us. He had lots of great stories to tell that made everyone laugh. Uncle Scotty will forever be in our hearts.

Scotty was a great uncle! Every time he came to our house, he would call Mason "Little Man" and Addison "Pretty Girl!" Mason will always remember Scotty for the John Deere Combine he drove!

My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Hitchcock family. Your Dad was great man, I always enjoy the conversation with him on the combine, during harvest time. He lived for farming, and will be missed deeply.

Hichcock family,

Having moved from Williamston in 1980, I still have fond memories of growing up there. Living in town was good but going out to the farms was a passion. Your farm was where I would take my daughter to see the milking operation in the mornings. All of the Hitchcock family made me feel welcome. I remember Scott showing us around and yes he was proud of keeping a clean operation. I also remember the snow storm of 1978. Scott, and I think Mark, were out tearing around on their John Deere snowmobiles. I, at the time, worked for Keith Litchfield. Scott asked me, on a Sunday, to help find a throttle cable for his Liquifire. I pulled one out of stock and put it on for him. It was a good thing I had keys to the store because most all stores were closed. I had a small part in Scott's life. He and your family have giving nice memories in mine. I am sad to here of his passing, but glad to have known him.
