Obituary for Otis Byrd Scott

Otis Byrd Scott, Lovingly referred to as “Uncle Bill” went to be with the Lord on Friday, December 29, 2017. Otis was born March 19, 1922, in Chattanooga, TN to William and Nellie (Davis) Scott. Relocating to Marion, Ohio, Otis attended and graduated from Marion Harding High School. Shortly thereafter, he was drafted and served in the military and was a WWII veteran. Upon his return from the military and the loss of his vision, Otis attended school in Cleveland, Ohio and became a prominent massage therapist in the Marion area and worked for the YMCA until he retired. Otis believed in fitness and authored a book “Catching Your Wind”.
He was a faithful member and avid supporter of the Blinded Veterans Association and spent countless hours composing music. Loving the North Wilkesboro area, he and his wife, Elizabeth, decided to leave Ohio and spend their retirement years in the North Wilkesboro community.
Those whom he joins in heaven are his wife of 63 years, Elizabeth (Redmon) Scott, his granddaughter, Michel Elizabeth McConnell, his brothers, William Scott and Calvin Scott, and sisters, Leavata (Scott) Tyler and Mary (Scott) Houston.
Otis leaves to celebrate his life, his son Michael Lee Scott, North Wilkesboro, daughter, Doris (Scott) McConnell, four grandchildren, Reginald J. Scott, Jade Scott, Steven Scott McConnell and Daniele Kathleen McConnell, and a host of nieces and nephews.
