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.

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.
