Mr. Marion S. Scott Jr., 86, affectionately known as “Scotty” or “Bub” by his family and friends, died on Christmas Eve, 2018, surrounded by family. An Eastern Shore native and lifelong farmer of his beloved Riverside Farms, in Seaview, Mr. Scott will be remembered for his charm, his sense of humor, and the twinkle in his eye. He was an avid bird and duck hunter, a recreational pilot, and the epitome of a southern gentleman. He was always ready for a game of cards or dominoes and loved being with his friends and family.
Mr. Scott was predeceased by his parents, Fannie Nottingham and Marion S. Scott; his wife, Gayhlia Walter Scott; and his sister, Betty Scott Jones. He is survived by two sons, Richard J. Scott and wife, Rene, of Richmond, and William D. Scott and wife, Alice, of Ivor; three grandchildren, Ashlyn Scott Scarborough and husband, Robert, W. Dustin Scott and wife, Alexandra, all of Ivor, and Rebecca Scott, of Richmond; a great-granddaughter, Briar Grace Scarborough, of Ivor; a sister, Kate Scott Jacob, of Onancock; and longtime companion, Bonnie Nottingham.
