Reflection of Life "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." II Timothy 4:7-8 The Rising of the Sun Mr. Floyd L. Scott was the son of the late John and Gladys Brown Scott. He was born on May 6, 1937 in Richmond, Virginia. He departed this life at 11:45pm on Sunday, June 9, 2013 at his residence. He slipped into eternal rest and peace, surrounded by his lovely companion and caregiver of 15 years, Ms. Frances Floyd. The Gleaming of the Sun Floyd attended the Richmond public school system in Richmond, Virginia. Later on in life, he moved to Hartsville, South Carolina for so many years. Then, he relocated to Darlington, South Carolina. Floyd met Frances in 1998, where they lived in Darlington, South Carolina until his passing. He was a former Mason. He had a heart of gold. He meant so much too so many people. Anyone that knew him, knew he loved to "talk trash." He worked at Cargill and the Hartsville Oil Mill. He loved his shot gun and his fishing. He loved to hunt as well. Floyd was preceded in death by his parents, John and Gladys Scott; a brother, Andrew Scott; five sisters, Louise Scott Holmes, Doll Baby Scott, Anna Belle Scott Robinson, Leatha Scott Thomas, and Gladys Ernestine Scott.

The Setting of the Sun On Sunday, June 9, 2013, the clock of life stood still. His smile has gone and his hand we can not touch, but still we have so many memories of the one we loved so much. His memory is our keepsake with which we will never part. God has him in his keeping: We have him in our hearts. Goodnight forever, Floyd "Close the book, but remember the Story."
