~ February 20, 2021
Eddie Allen Scott was born to Dewey and Reverend Lestina Scott on July 14, 1950 in Clopton, Alabama. Eddie went home to be with the Lord on February 20, 2021.
Eddie was the 3rd youngest of 10 children. While still a toddler, he moved to New Jersey with his parents and siblings. Eddie grew up in a GOD fearing and very spiritual family with strong Christian values. Growing up Eddie loved to work. He started working at a very young age. Eddie's life embodied the spirit of a hard worker and fearless fighter in everything he did. During his teenage years, he met his High School sweetheart, Glenda (Neacy), whom he would later marry. Eddie would see her walking home from school and pull up beside her in his Convertible Chevrolet Impala and offer her a ride home. She didn't accept his offer but after quite a few attempts, she said yes and they began dating. Eddie and Glenda wed on September 25, 1971. Their beautiful union of 53 years together including 50 years of marriage was indestructible...built on their love and trust in God, value of family and persevering spirits.
Eddie and Glenda moved to Freehold, NJ where they purchased their first home in their twenties. They would raise four children at 15 Ford Avenue. Eddie was always very meticulous with his clothing, cars and especially his home. His own yearly tradition was to repaint the front steps of his house and all the bricks on the front walkway. He took great pride in his Ford Ave home for nearly 30 years before buying his dream home in Ohio. Eddie would often preach about the importance of homeownership. Throughout Eddie's career he worked for Nestle, Sunshine Biscuits and owned a home improvement company specializing in interior and exterior painting. Eddie had a passion for antiques and collectibles. He loved turning old things new and then turning those things into money. He will always be remembered for his strong work ethic and his love of his family, friends and Freehold. Eddie was an endless provider for his family. No job was ever too big or too small. His spirit always embodied "Mind over Matter."
Eddie was a family man who loved life. He had an infectious smile and laugh. You could hear him "miles away" talking and laughing. He would go out of his way to help anyone. Some of his favorite things were a fresh haircut, a clean suit, Kangol hats, his pick up trucks, a clean detailed car, house music, dancing, sunny summer days and and immaculate home. Of all the wonderful things about him what was most important was always GOD, family and his wife Glenda (Neacy) and kids.
Eddie Allen Scott never tired. He never gave up. He always said "God will make a way out of no way, God will give me strength." He was a kind man with an open heart. A man filled with stories, wisdom, grace and love. He leaves many to cherish his life including his wife, Glenda (Neacy) Scott, children Lorenzo (Drema) Scott, Brian (Tomika) Scott, Tiffaniey Scott and Gabriel Person; grandchildren Ruby, Diamond, William and Anthony; brothers Oscar* (Merl "Mary") Scott, Thomas (Ann) Scott, Hosie (Ruth) Scott, Willie Scott, Lloyd* (Luvinia*), Jimmy* (Denise) Scott and Larry Scott*; sisters Ruth (Benjamin "Benny") Hunter and Hattie Montgomery as well as a host of family and friends.
