Floyd A. “Buck” Scott, Sr.
November 13, 1941 - March 29, 2020
Floyd A. “Buck” Scott, Sr., age 78, of Middletown, DE passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 29, 2020.
Born in Smryna, DE on November 13, 1941, he was the son of the late Earl F. and Louise (Davis) Scott, Sr. Buck retired in 2003 from Schagrin Gas company after 32 years as a service technician. Buck was a talented craftsman whose abilities were limited not by the material, challenge, nor experience, but the amount of spare time in each day. He got his hands on anything with an engine and was especially fond of his red ‘72 Nova, old gas pumps, and his cool parking meter. Buck could often be found at Street Rod shows with his friend, Darwin. The rest of his time was devoted to loving his family unconditionally, and doing anything he could for them. His greatest joy came from spending time with his grandchildren and watching them participate in their various activities. He truly adored each and every one of them.
In addition to his parents, Buck has now been reunited with his wife of 47 years, Joyce; granddaughter, Cecilia Dawson; nephews, John and Wayne; and nieces, Donna and Tammy. Buck is survived by his three children, Buck, Jr. (Kendall Scott), Jean (Greg Lockwood) and Peggy (Jerry Dawson); grandchildren, Joshua (Caroline Lockwood), Matthew Lockwood, Rebecca Scott, Robert Dawson and Kate Dawson; great granddaughter, Layne Lockwood; brothers, Earl “Buster” Scott and Terrance “T.R.” Scott; special sister-in-law, Fran (Lee Biddle); and many loving nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors. Buck will also be missed by his second wife, Dorothy Hall; and his canine companion, Arturo.
Funeral services will be held at a later date at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 275 E. Main Street, Middletown, DE.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Buck’s memory to Lorelton Assisted Living, where he resided for the last five months receiving loving care from the excellent staff, 2200 W. 4th Street, Wilmington, DE 19805.
