Help us celebrate Thomas! Please share your stories and photos, and invite others who remember Thomas.
Thomas Elihu "Tom" Scott, III passed away on May 27, 2022. He was the son of Thomas Scott, II and Lavonne Billingsley Scott of Henderson, TN. He is survived by two sons, Todd (Davin Swanson) Scott and Cliff (Chrissy Fischer) Scott of Charlotte, NC, brother Ralph Scott and sister Susan Scott (Frank) Bradford of Bon Aqua, TN, two grandchildren, four nieces, a nephew, and two granddogs.
Mr. Scott earned degrees from Freed-Hardeman College, Abilene Christian University, and Morehead State University. After working in ministry, higher education, and human resource management, Mr. Scott retired in 2015 as a special education teacher with the Franklin County, Tennessee school system, a role he loved best of all. He is remembered as a dedicated teacher and a caring, compassionate, and accepting father, surrogate father, brother, uncle, and steadfast friend, with a gift for listening and understanding. He was a consummate lover of chocolate, British television drama, and, above all, a really good bargain.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations of money or time may be made in support of a local Democratic candidate of your choosing.
