saddened. We will forever cherish the time we were blessed to have John with us.

grew up in Crestview, FL but at 18 years old he decided he wanted to live in a big city. John
moved to Baton Rouge, LA where he worked different jobs. His most current job was that of a
chimney sweep, but he was also a welder, electrician, landscaper and tree trimmer. He enjoyed
hunting, fishing, going to the beach, jet skiing, golfing, and hanging out with family and friends.
But most of all John loved spending time with his son, Wyatt Timberlake Scott (6).
John was a loving and dedicated father to his son, Wyatt. Wyatt was the center of his life and
meant more to him than anything in this world, something he proudly and often mentioned.

love and compassion for everyone impacted the lives of all those he met.
