Mrs. Scott and Family, My deepest and sincere sympathy go out to you and the family. Rev. Scott (or as I called him Rev. John and "Speedy") was a very dear person to me. I grew to love and respect him. He would always ask if I was behaving myself and I would say of course and he would look at me like "yea, right!!". I will truly miss him. He has gone home to be with the Lord and has received his crown and I know we will all see him again. Rest in Peace "Speedy". I'll miss you. Jovita Reynolds

My heart became very heavy when my sister, Jovita, sent me word that Rev. Scott had passed away. We have truly lost a dedicated soldier. While seemingly quiet in nature, his faith in God and his steadfastness to proclaim the word was unwavering. I always enjoyed hearing him preach. I and St. Luke will certainly miss his presence and his wisdom. But his journey is now complete and he rests with angels. My sincerest condolences to Mrs. Scott, John and your family. Rev. Scott may be gone, but he most certainly will never be forgotten. God bless. Sandy Reynolds

I remember Rev. Scott as a warm, kind-hearted man who lived the life he preached. My favorite memory is of him singing "Precious Lord". He will forever live in our hearts. Nancy Finley Barbour

As I remember Rev. John Scott, I will think of the many years we were next door neighbbors in Woodstock and the many joyous memories he and my brothers and sisters shared together. We called him "Johnny Scott" then. At a very young age he was preaching to us all. He and my brother (Henry, nicknamed Boonie) joined the Army at the same time. All the memories of him will forever remain in my heart especially his deliverance of God's messages and his singing. Of all the many, many songs that he sang, there are two songs that will always remind me of him and they are: "If I can be of some help to somebody as I pass along the way, than my living will not be in vain" and my favorite is "My Desire". The words are a perfect description of him and how he lived his life. "It's my desire to do some good thing every day, It's my desire to help to fallen by the way, It's my desire to bring back those who've gone astray, It's my desire to be like my Lord. It's my desire to bring some wonderer to the fold, It's my desire to shelter someone from the cold, It's my desire to do Thy will as I am told, It's my desire to be like my Lord. It's my desire to see His face when life is done, It's my desire to meet the Father and the Son, It's my desire to hear Him say "my child, well done, It's my desire to be like my Lord." Rev. John Scott lived up to and completed all his desires and God saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard for him to climb. He knew he was suffering and was in pain and would not get well on earth again. So, God closed his weary eyelids and whisipered "peace be thine my child, come home, job well done." It has saddened us all for Rev. Scott to leave us but his spirit will always watch over us and when we make the journey, I know Rev. Scott will be there with God smiling with open arms welcoming us. With love and deepest sympathy to his wife, Lucille; his children and his sister Rebecca (Fleeta) Ruffin. Delores Dyer Woodstock, Virginia.

Proverbs 20:6 "Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?" Rev. John Scott was truly a kind, faithful, humble man of God who did not proclaim his own goodness, but instead he let his light shine so men could see his good works and glorify God, His Father, in Heaven. My family has known Rev. Scott and his family for as far back as I can remember. I can imagine the Lord said to him on December 6th, "Well done, well done, my good and faithful servant. Enter now into thy rest." Wini Clark Parker on behalf of my mother, Anne Brown Clark, my late father, Bobby Ray Clark, and my brothers -- Robert ("Robbie") Clark and Timothy ("Timmy") Clark.

Susan Summers left a message on December 9, 2009:
I have known the family since I was a child. Since singing is very close to my heart, I always remember him singing at church. My mother always loved to hear him sing. Rev. Scott seemed to always have a gentle spirit. He was a true man of God. My mother had the utmost love and respect for him, his wife and the entire family as I do. He was my mothers pastor for many years as well as mine. He will be greatly missed, not only by his family but by those of us who felt like a part of the Scott family and loved them. I consider him one of the greatest men I ever will know.
