After graduating high school, Scott served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. Scott retired as a Master Mechanic from French’s in 2010 after 37 years of dedicated service to a job he loved. It was at French’s that he met Carolyn, his wife of 28 years. Together, they enjoyed traveling and attending concerts. Scott loved training his Treeing Walker Coonhounds and teaching others the art of hunting. Scott could fix anything and he was readily available to lend a helping hand to family, friends and neighbors. He always carried tools with him in case a need arose.
