Memories Timeline


  1. I grew up with Uncle Scott and he was like a legit uncle to me and my family. I’ll never forget when I had my birthday every year he would say happy birthday twin. I can just see and hear all the memories we share.

  2. Laura I pray for you and your family. Your dad sounds a lot like mine and they are surely walking those streets of gold.❤️

  3. Know that you are all in our prayers and that we love you! If you need anything let us know.

    Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

  4. Scott was an amazing person. He would always come up to me and put his hand on me and pray for me all the time he was so compassionate and caring. Now he’s with Jesus prayers for Jean in the family.

  5. Dear Jean and the family, I was blessed to work with Scott at The Cove in Asheville for many years. Any time with him was time well spent! His frequent good natured razzing about my lack of handy skills was well worth putting up with because you know he was going to drop a nugget of Godly wisdom on you. When I left The Cove many years later and moved my family back home to Wilmington, NC we got hit with a pretty good hurricane. My wife and I were volunteering at out Church to help out, hundreds of people came out to pitch in. Across the large parking lot I hear someone holler… SAM!!! It was my brother Scottie Brown. Jean I think you were with him, yall had come all the way down to Wilmington to help us out. That right there tells you everything about his servant heart! I am so sorry for everyone’s loss. Kids and grandkids, just know that he was an amazing man who loved all of you and his Lord. Well done Scottie Brown! Sam Wheeler

  6. Dear jean and family, my deepest sympathy to you all! I am saddened that I am not able to be their today but my thoughts and prayers are with you all! I am positive Scott and your brother in law / uncle David have so much catching up to do been 26 years and 4 days they they have been apart. Love you all 🙏🏼💔💔🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

  7. Jean and family,
    Sending love and prayers to all
    So sorry to hear about our brother
    a great man that walked close with our Lord, he will be missed.
