Craig Myron Scott, 57, died Monday afternoon (June 17, 2013) at the South Georgia Medical Center of Valdosta from injuries received in an accident.

A native and life-long resident of Ware County, he is the son of the late Myron Lavert Scott and Margaret Helen Smith Scott Sullivan. He was a 1973 graduate of Central Adult High School in Sanford, Florida.

He retired from the Car Department of CSX Railroad in 2008 after 11 years of service. Prior to his CSX employment he had worked with Auto Train as a young adult and then with the SCL Railroad. He was the former owner and operator of Craig's SSS Food Store on Albany Ave for eighteen years.

He was a member of Sweat Memorial Baptist Church where he accepted the Lord as his Savior at the age of 5 years old. He was a member of the Adult Sunday School Class, and over the years had been active and taught in the Royal Ambassadors (RA's), Adult Sunday School Classes, Vacation Bible School and many other areas of church work.

He loved to work on dune buggies and motorcycles, loved helping others in need and fixing anything that needed fixing, but most important of all he was dedicated to tending to the needs of his family and friends.

He and his wife, Ellen Heath Scott, would have celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary this coming August. He is also survived by a daughter, Kelly Irene Scott of Naples, FL, a son Phillip Myron Scott (wife Rachel) of Waycross, a grandchild that is expected to be born in January 2014; a sister, Carla Scott Frazier (husband Ted) of Port Orange, FL; nephews, Kris Griffin of Savannah, Scott Griffin of Waycross, Mark Griffin, and Franz "BJ" Harich of Maitland, FL, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives.

Memorial donations may be made to the building debt retirement fund of Sweat Memorial Baptist Church, 510 West Blackshear Ave, Waycross, GA 31503.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 AM Thursday (June 20, 2013) at Sweat Memorial Baptist Church. Burial will be in Jordan Cemetery near Dixie Union. The family will receive friends from 6:00 until 8:00 Wednesday evening at Music Funeral Home.
