Henry Allison Scott Jr. went to be with his Heavenly Father, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 1, 2021, at the age of 87.
He was born May 27, 1934, in his family home in Frewsburg, N.Y., on Ivory Road to Henry Allison and Lorena (Lawson) Scott Sr.
He lived in Frewsburg, until 2011, when he and his wife, Lois moved to Dunkirk, N.Y. For the past two years he had been a resident at the Chautauqua Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, where he enjoyed many activities, making new friends and where the staff was like a second family to him.
Henry graduated from Frewsburg Central School in 1952. He worked for 27 years at Nelson Brothers Lumber, where he drove truck and also worked in the lumber yard.
Henry was an avid sports fan for the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, NY Yankees and NASCAR, with Jeff Gordon having been his favorite driver in the past and Chase Elliot being his favorite driver in the present. When he was younger, he enjoyed stock car racing, driving on the dirt tracks.
He had been a lifelong member of Ivory Baptist Church in Frewsburg and then joined Christ Chapel Wesleyan Church in Silver Creek, N.Y.
He is survived by the love of his life, Lois Elaine (Porter) Scott of almost 65 years, as their wedding anniversary is June 9, 1956. They have two sons: Henry Allison Scott III “Hank” of Jamestown, N.Y., and Robert Ernest (Renee) Scott of Dunkirk. He has six grandchildren: Tanya Baker, Jeff Barden, Travis Scott, Tyler (Leah) Scott, Sheldon Scott and Amethyst Paige Scott. He has seven great-grandchildren: Allison Seastrom, Patience Glatt, Anthony Anzalone II, Aaliyah Anzalone, Luke Scott, Emma Palmesano and Elliot Foust. He is also survived by his sisters-in-law, Ethel Scott and Sandy Houck; his brother-in-law, Milford (Juanita) Porter; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was predeceased by his parents and all of his siblings: Delores Scott, DuWayne Scott, Clayton Scott, Carolyn Widmark and Elliot Scott; his brother-in-law, James Widmark; and his sister-in-law, Dorothy “Dottie” Scott.
As his niece stated “with his death came the end of an era-he was the last of the Scott children”. As the good Lord welcomes him home, so does his family.
Family and friends may call from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 5, at the McGraw-Kowal Funeral Home, 736 Central Ave., Dunkirk. A funeral service will be held immediately after the calling hours at 1 p.m. The Rev. Mike Leamon will officiate. Burial will be in Ivory Cemetery, town of Carroll.
