Herman Scott

Herman Scott, 86, of Kensett went to be with the Lord February 13, 2017 after a valiant fight at the Arkansas Heart Hospital.  He was born July 21, 1930 to Glenard and Nova Scott.  He graduated at age 16 from Kensett High School and began a business with his dad, G.H. Scott and Son which developed into Double S Carpet.  He was an active member of the Church of Christ in Kensett, as being in the AR Sports Hall of Fame for years officiating basketball and football, but his children, grandchildren and great grandkids were his greatest delight.  Herman is survived by Jeanetta (Sid) Langley of Searcy, Sheilah (Kent) Presley of Pangburn, Gary (Carol) Scott of Searcy, Keith (Melody) Scott of Russellville and the young man he raised, Justin (Lauren) Muller of Hot Springs.

Grandchildren and great grandkids are Jan and Scott Hood (William and Elizabeth) of Wichita, KS, Erin and Todd Pinkston (Hadley) of Dallas, TX, Maggie Presley (Kaden) of Pangburn, Holly and Corey Kurck (Colorado and Chism) of Searcy, Cody and Kandid Scott (Sheffield) of Maumelle, Megan Scott (Kate) and Spencer Scott of Russellville.  He also leaves behind extended family and a host of friends.

 

He was preceded in death by his grandson, Jeremy Langley and a brother, Buton Scott.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at the Arkansas Heart Hospital for all the gracious care given to our father.

Visitation will be Friday, February 17th from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Searcy-McEuen Funeral Home.

Celebrating his life will be Saturday, February 18th at 10:00 am at Searcy-McEuen.

In lieu of flowers the family asks donations be made to the Kensett Church of Christ located at

 P.O. Box 303 Kensett, AR 72082.

Guestbook

I want to express my sincerest sympathy to the Scott family and friends because of losing Herman recently in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40 and John 11:23-25) Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago." Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it."

Again, the family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to contact me if you wish at my email address; myranj@centurytel.net
