In Loving Memory of Bobby L. Scott

Yesterday afternoon, our family received some shocking news....that my great uncle Bobby had passed away.  Kevin and I saw Bobby 2 weeks ago when we went to Greenville to see my parents.  Bobby had had surgery to have some gallstones removed and to have his gallbladder out.  He was also sick with a touch of pneumonia but all in all he was doing good from the surgery.  He had been moved into an assisted living place to help him recover.  Yesterday morning he had a procedure done to remove the stint that had been left in from his surgery and it went great. My dad was with him all morning.  Then a few hours later we find out he has passed away.  The nurse had checked on him and told him that she would be right back. When she came back, he was face down in the bathroom and was gone.  The funeral is planned for Friday morning.  Bobby was 86 years old. His wife, my aunt Ann had passed away 4 years ago in October.  He had really been missing her since she has been gone.  We know he's in a better place and is happy to be reunited with her. He has so much to tell her about these great-grandbabies that have been born since she has been gone.  He was a special person and someone that I was close to.  All of the holidays were spent at their house, we took vacations together, he would do anything he could to help you out.  He was a pharmacist, a life-long Carolina Gamecock fan, a Myrtle Beach goer, sang every Sunday morning in the church choir, he served in the Korean war, he loved his family and especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  He will be missed but his memory will live on in the lives of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  Ann and Bobby were a very special couple and God used them to do HIS work to help many, many people.  I know they are rejoicing in heaven.

This was at Alexis 1 year birthday party: Bobby, Me, Alexis, Madalyn, Kevin (January 2016)

Bobby made a special trip to come see "Alexis Ann" when she was born.  He really thought a lot of both Madalyn and Alexis. However, with Alexis having "Ann" as part of her name, she was a special twinkle in his eye. (January 2015)
