Thomas or “Paw Paw” always had a smile on his face. He loved his family and would chase “Faye” wherever she went. Thomas loved Randy and Thomas and always asked where they were at all times, even if they had just left the house. He was a man that loved to hunt; from ducks to deer, he loved it all. He also enjoyed farming and working in his garden every summer. He loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren with everything in him. At any gathering, you would find him “sneaking sweets” or taking a nap. He was a man of few words, but his love was always evident.
Thomas Vollie Scott, Sr. passed away Aug. 17, 2020, at the age of 80. Thomas was born in Webster County, Mississippi, to the late Mr. and Mrs. Barner Scott Dec. 7, 1939. He was a graduate of Rolling Fork High School and attended Mississippi State University. He worked for 48 and a half years at Delta Implement and was the best “parts” man anyone could find. He welcomed everyone at Delta Implement and could sit and talk for hours. Thomas was an active member of First Baptist Church of Rolling Fork where he served for 35 years as a Sunday School secretary and became a lifetime deacon after 36 years of service. Thomas served in the National Guard for nine years.
Thomas is survived by his beloved wife of 59 years, Margie Faye Scott; son, Randy Scott (Lisa), the late Tommy Scott (Jennifer); two brothers Ralph Scott and the late Barner B. Scott; and a sister the late Barbara Brogden; eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
The family asks that memorials and donations be made to Rolling Fork Baptist Church and Sharkey-Issaquena Community Hospital.
