He was born on February 3, 1940, in Albemarle County to the late Walter Scott Sr and Sarah Eliza Scott. He was a faithful member of the New Hope Baptist Church in Esmont, VA in which he was a deacon, a member of the male chorus and served on the usher board. 

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sons Walter Scott III and Bradley L. Scott. One grandson Travis M. Scott. Two brothers Eugene and Fred Scott, two sisters Juanita Suitt and Mary Rush. A lifelong friend/brother George A. Turner (Joe).

He is survived by his devoted wife of 39 years Mary E. Scott. Three sons Keith, Jamie (Kim)and Wallie Scott. Four daughters Mary Lloyd, Sarah Scott Swingler (James), Amy Scott, Marquita Scott (Everette). Three young ladies whom he loved as daughters Sade Nance, Turkeshia Ayers (Pnut), and Chinikie Goode. Five brothers Reginald Scott, James (Mack) Scott, John Scott (Dee), William (Dusty) Scott (Peggy), Lindsay (Henpeck) Scott. One brother-in-law Landon Rush. Four sisters Clara (Sister) Nelson, Helen Carter, Geneva Jones, Frances Feggans; sixteen grandchildren: Stephanie (Walter L), Walter, Marquis (Jessica), Josh (Joleen), Darryl, Darrence (Kierra), Xavier (Samaria), Sakia(Jaheim), Makala, Jamie, Tayquan, Lamont, Keith, Sapphira, Ariana, and Jasmine. Seventeen great-grandchildren: Anthony, Aniyah, Khalexi, Joshua, T’Zion, Savion, Khaleigha, Malik, Maurice, Major, Martez, Micah, Mariah, Mckenna, Anecia, Ayzie, and Cazzie. A very special friend George L Turner (Lamar) and a special friend/niece Laura Reid. A special ex son-in-law whom he continued to admire John Lloyd.

His occupation was a farm worker for many years. He worked for Scotland Farm and Liberty Corner. He was a very God-fearing man, a man of many words and very comical. He enjoyed people and whomever he encountered he had something jokingly to say. He loved his wife, all his

children, grandchildren and great-grands. He fought to stay with us, but we saw his body growing weak and tired, so we had to say goodbye to you our dear husband/father/grandfather/brother. He leaves to cherish a host of family, Uncle Walker Lee, brother/sister in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and a special cat, Paul.

A funeral service will be conducted at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, December 15, 2023 at Salem Baptist Church, 306 Axtell Road, Howardsville, VA with Rev. Oscar Glover Jr.  officiating. Interment will follow at New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery, 7725 Porters Road, Esmont, VA.
