Scott was born on July 22, 1958 in Pampa, TX to Billy Davis and Aletha Raye (Smith) Davis. As the oldest of seven siblings, he carried the responsibility and disposition of a big brother throughout his life and those qualities manifested in his love for serving and encouraging those around him. Scott was a resident of Pampa and a member of Harvest Fellowship until 2017 when they disbanded. Afterward, he began faithfully attending Calvary Baptist Church. Scott loved farming, visiting with loved ones and strangers alike, and Canadian Wildcat football. He also had a deep love for animals, but especially his dogs who he referred to as his “girls.” Most of all, though, Scott loved his family. He was always very proud to be a big brother and later in life to be “Uncle Bubby.” Scott never married or had kids of his own, but he loved and spoiled his nieces and nephews, and later his great nieces and nephews, as if they were his own. Scott had a wonderful talent for making people feel like family that was never superficial or forced. He was a true servant and natural born caretaker, and it was in these efforts that he found the most joy and fulfillment. His departure from this life has impacted many, and he will be deeply missed.
Scott is preceded in death by his mother, Aletha Davis; father, Billy Davis; and sister, Joni Davis. He is survived by three sisters, Jan Shaw and husband Charlie of Montgomery, TX, Gay-Lynn Couts and husband Clint of Pampa, TX; Lisa Gill and husband Chris of Canadian, TX; two brothers, Craig Davis and wife Amy of Friendswood, TX and Tim Davis of Amarillo, TX. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, Dagan McCann, Caleb McCann, Zach Shaw, Colton Shaw, Joshuah Ellis, Sarah Simon, Lindsey McCormick, Lauren Couts, Cody Gill, Clay Gill, Caylee Gill, Brittney Davis, Darcy Davis, Ryne Davis, and Tanner Davis, along with several great nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, Scott requested memorials to Calvary Baptist Youth Scholarship Fund or Hemphill County Hospice.
