Jimmie Glenn Scott, 85 of Bucyrus passed peacefully Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at Altercare of Bucyrus.
Jim was born a triplet on April 13, 1936 in Strickland, Kentucky to the late Elmer R. Sr. and Mayme (Stamm) Scott. He grew up helping his family with their tobacco farm and following school, he helped building bridges for a short time before coming to Ohio in the early 1950s. Upon his arrival, he met Evelyn Marie Allen at a carnival. The two hit it off and in 1957 they married. Jimmie landed a job at General Motors in Ontario, working as a crane operator and was a devoted employee for 30 plus years. He was a proud member of the UAW 549 and was considered a true teammate as he was never afraid to stand up for the rights of his fellow employees. Jimmie was also a member of the Lincoln Ave. Church of Christ, serving on the Benevolent Committee and took pride in delivering food to the sick or folks in need.
Saying family was important to Jimmie was an understatement. With quiet dignity, he cared for any immediate or extended family member as needed and loved heading back to Kentucky for their family reunions. He and Evelyn enjoyed years of traveling and took many trips to Nashville, South Carolina and in more recent years, cherished their trip out west with Ralph and Martha Seckel. Jimmie and his daughter, Sandy shared a special bond over the years, dabbling in cars, catching the newest Disney movie and for many years they both looked forward to their annual Christmas shopping trip. This began by eating their Chinese favorite, followed by searching for a perfect outfit for Evelyn. Many times, a nice bottle of perfume became the alternative gift. Jimmie loved his son-in-law, Chuck and treated him as one of his own, but nothing made him happier than time spent with his two grandsons, Chris and Adam. Pawpaw, as he was referred to, shared many fishing trips with Chris and loved traveling the country with Adam while he played basketball. When great grandchildren came along, he carried on loving and spoiling them as best he could.
Many of his mornings began with a copy of The Dispatch from the Emporium and gathering with his brother, Jack, (who was his best friend) along with other friends at McDonald’s, where they’d attempt to solve all worldly problems. Jimmie enjoyed tinkering in his garage, he had a love for cars and built a few bird houses over the years which became gifts for family. His dogs were an important part of his life and wherever Jim went, so did they. Jimmie enjoyed a good NASCAR race and was always rooting for Dale Earnhardt Sr. He cleared his calendar for UK basketball and proudly supported them by often dressing in something University of Kentucky.
In addition to Evelyn, his wife of 64 years, Jimmie is survived by daughter, Sandra Jo (Chuck) Stone; grandsons, Christopher Stone and Adam Stone; great grandchildren, Miranda, Aidan, Elliott, Ezra and Leo; sisters-in-law, Tauwanta Scott, Maxine Scott and Jeri Newman as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family members. During his three and half years at Maplecrest, Jimmie made many friends with the staff, considered them family and loved the care given.
He was preceded in death by siblings, Bernice Kegley, Elmer “Jr.”, Forest, Virgil, Johnny, Jackie “Jack” and Wilbur Scott.
Out of safety for all, Jimmie’s family respectfully request that all guests please wear a face covering when visiting on the day of services. Family will receive friends from 11 – 12:50 pm Saturday, December 4 at Wise Funeral Service, where his funeral will be held that day at 1:00 pm with Ed Kirkpatrick officiating. Burial will follow in Oakwood Cemetery.
If desired, donations can be made payable to either Alzheimer’s Association of Northwest Ohio or to the Humane Society Serving Crawford County. These gifts will be accepted through the funeral home. The Scott family extends special thanks to Kindred Hospice for their wonderful care and all the nurses and aides who cared for him at Maplecrest for three plus years and his last three months at Altercare. Expressions of sympathy are encouraged to be shared on his tribute wall.
