Milton Douglas Scott, of Seagoville passed away July 2, 2021 at the age of 79 years old. After months of failing health, he died peacefully in his home with his beloved wife Nancy Carolyn McIntire Scott by his side.
Douglas was born April 5, 1942 in Peeltown to Milton Bruce and Martha Faye Ballard Scott. They later moved to Kemp where he grew up.
As a very young man he learned to work hard and to take on whatever job was available to support himself and the family. He worked in the dairy industry and car manufacturing plants before becoming a firefighter for Highland Park. He was a busy man that kept many irons in the fire. When not fighting fires he was a handyman, a coach, a photographer for the local youth sports leagues, an avid fisherman and his grandchildren’s biggest supporter.
He was a good friend to all and a man who would give his shirt to a friend. He was a caring father who always worried about his children and did the best he could to teach and guide them, a loving grandfather and great-grandfather. Douglas was a strong, proud and good man. He is loved and will be missed by many.
Douglas was preceded in death by parents and brother Royce Glenn Scott.
He is survived by his loving wife Nancy Carolyn McIntire Scott, children Steven Scott of Barry and Steffanye Scott Keating and husband Lance of Rowlett, grandchildren Madyson Keating, Hunter Keating and Macye Keating, great-grandchild Wesley Keating, sister Vivian Trout and husband Dan of Kemp and many nieces and nephews.
Family scheduled celebration services with Parker-Ashworth Funeral Home were held July 7, 2021 followed by a graveside service at Kemp Cemetery.
