George Wayne Scott

1952 - 2020


George “Wayne” Scott, born on March 18, 1952, left this earth on December 29th at the age of 68.

Wayne was a Tennessee native that loved his beautiful state. He was a proud member of the Carpenters Local Union 74 where he made lifelong friends.

You'll always be missed, my other Brother. Our lives will never be the same without you, but eventually, we'll learn to live with the pain of Heaven needing another carpenter. Love you forever, Debbie

Andrea, I didn't ever meet your Dad but i knew him through all the stories you told about him.  I know it is a very hard thing when you loose your father. Someone who has been on this earth for all of your life. A father like yours that was so involved in your life as a child and as an adult. It is hard to figure out how  you are going to go on in this life without him in it. But let me tell you, You will make it, you will laugh again and smile when you see him in your children and in yourself. And in the same respect my friend, you really never get "over it"! I lost my Dad in 2009 and to this day I think about him every day and wish I could call him and ask him something. Prayers my friend will help you get through the tough days and give you comfort.! Unfortunately it is the "Circle Of Life", we most likely will have to bury our parents. Let me tell you something that helped me, I met a girl who was 12 years old and she lost her dad. I thought about how lucky and blessed I was to have had my Dad for 48 years, makes you ThankFul! Your memories will pull you through the tough days.

Our Mahoney Clan was so sad to learn that Wayne had left so suddenly. He always had this tremendous smile, which he passed on to his daughters. It was evident that family was his joy! His daughters say he was their rock. What a legacy of love and commitment he leaves! Always a treasure in the hearts who loved him.

I never got to meet you, yet understand you were a giant of a man. Blessings and peace to your family, friends, and neighbors who had the pleasure of a relationship with you and learned from your guidance of integrity and wisdom. Rest in peace Mr. Scott.
