On Thursday, September 17, 2020, the angel of silence came and with chilly fingers sealed his lips, Mr. Kenneth Wayne Scott, a loving father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. His soul winged its flight from this world of sin, sorrow, and pain to a place of eternal rest.

Kenneth was born December 1, 1957, in Bullock County, Alabama to the late Mrs. Annie Mae Anderson and Mr. Sylvester Scott. He was preceded in death by his sisters, Ruby Burgan and Bettye Price. He confessed Christ at an early age and united with the Elizabeth Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend L. D. Days. Kenneth taught courses on computer literacy, was a member of the Senior Usher Board, and served as a Christ faithfully under Pastor Hawthorne Reed.

He was a 1976 graduate of Bullock County High School, Union Springs, Alabama. Upon graduating, Kenneth enlisted in the United States Air Force. In 1993, he retired and returned home after serving his country faithfully and honorably. As a civilian, he enrolled at Wallace Community College (previously Sparks State Technical College) where he received degrees in computer information systems, accounting technology, and electrical technology. He was also employed as a bus driver and professional tutor for TRIO Student Support Services at WCC and made an everlasting impact in higher education.

Kenneth leaves to mourn his passing, a devoted son, Keith (Dontrinice) Scott, a granddaughter, Lyric Cowan all of Union Springs, Alabama; eight sisters, Mrs. Anne (Melvin) Gregory, Flint, Michigan, Ms. Billie Hazzard, Union Springs, Alabama, Mrs. Annie (Frank) Lee, Detroit, Michigan, Ms. Bonnie Newby, Flint, Michigan, Mrs. Florida (Henry) Major, Rochester, New York, Mrs. Marilyn (George) King, Akron, Ohio, Ms. Vena Garrett, Union Springs, Alabama, Mrs. Pamela (Gregory) Patterson, Midway, Alabama; four brothers, Mr. William Anderson, Union Springs, Alabama, Mr. George Duane (Margaret) Anderson, Mr. Brandon (Pandora) Holmes, Mr. Willie Earl Garrett, Union Springs, Alabama; twenty-one nephews, thirteen nieces; best friend, Mr. Eddie Hicks, Warner Robins, Georgia; two special friends, Mr. Jerry Maddox and Mr. Willie Reed; his Elizabeth Missionary Baptist Church family and a host of other relatives and friends.
