Scott then started working at Goodyear in Union City, Tennessee, in 2001, retiring from Goodyear in Gadsden, AL after 18 years.
One of Scotts greatest passions in life was to jump on that shiny red Harley Davidson with ghost flames and hit the open road to feel the wind on his face and the freedom of it all. Along with his partner in crime, Rick French, Scott liked to stop at all the Harley shops on his journeys. He loved to ride for all different types of charities, mainly cancer awareness. He was also a member of the Southern Cruisers for a short time.
Scott provided for his family and everyone that came into his home.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, from 5:00PM-8:00PM at the Kenton chapel of Karnes and Son Funeral Home.
