Larry Glen Scott, 67, of Athens passed away on Jan. 21, 2017, at Athens-Limestone Hospital.
A native of Athens, Larry enjoyed most his involvement in the youth baseball and softball organizations during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s as both coach and board member. He also coached youth basketball and soccer during the 1980s, having helped provide and build some of the first soccer goals used by the brand-new soccer league.
As a 25-year employee of Dunlop Tire and Rubber, Larry was proud to have held a variety of positions that allowed him the opportunity to give other young people their first job.
Always quick with a smile and a joke and a natural storyteller; Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur Brice Scott and Hester Belcher Scott, and sister Mary Jo Scott, all of Athens.
Larry is survived by his wife Sandra Bartlett Scott of Athens; his children, Tammy (Stephen) House of California; Michael (Jessica) Scott of Athens; and Lori (Scott) Adams of Florence; five grandchildren, Scott House, Ramsey Scott, Emily House, Bryce Scott and Jacob Adams. He is also survived by his sisters, Rebecca (Cliff) Anderson of Texas and Faye Tribble of Athens; eight nieces and nephews, and three great-nephews.
Services will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24. at Limestone Chapel Funeral Home. Burial will be in Limestone Memorial Gardens. Visitation was held Monday.
Pallbearers are Hosea Bartlett IV, Seth Bartlett, Roger Cates, Brian Haney, Chris Stanford, Jason Talley, Larry McDole and Lee Butler. Honorary pallbearers are Virgil McBay, Danny Vinson, Jeff Chovan and Richard Keyes. Longtime friends, Dan Green and Gary Schrimsher will conduct the service, with music provided by Jimmy Hill.
