Rex Allen Scott, 55, of Francisco, Indiana completed his earthly journey on January 2, 2014 after a bravely fought 25 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. He peacefully entered his eternal home surrounded by his family, the chime of his mother’s clock, and the promise of the song, “I’ll Fly Away.” His chains are gone, and has now been set free. 

Born on May 15, 1958, Rex was the youngest of Therne and Hazel Scott.

In addition to being the life of the party, he was known as the comedian and entertainer of the family who had an award-winning smile to accompany his sweet nature.

Rex gave his life to the Lord later in life and was always ready to share his testimony, regardless of his life’s circumstances. He enjoyed both music and technology and found a way to combine the two in service to the Lord. He proudly took on the role of sound technician at the Tower Heights Church of God, where he was an active member.

His proudest accomplishments, however, were becoming father to his son, Branden, and grandfather to his grandson, Noah. Rex and Branden together enjoyed a love of dogs, Star Trek, and NASCAR racing, especially Jeff Gordon. Like many of us, he loved watching the Andy Griffith Show. 

Rex joined his mother, Hazel, in eternal rest but leaves behind his father, Therne Scott of Francisco, son Branden Scott of Florida, grandson Noah Scott of Florida, brother Danny (Brenda) Scott of Oakland City, sister Phyllis (Paul) Daniels of Fishers, and sister Donna Sisson of Princeton. Rex was also a beloved uncle to four nieces and two nephews, as well as three great-nephews and one great-niece.

A celebration of Rex’s life and victory over death will be held on Saturday at 2 PM at Tower Heights Church of God with Pastor Skip Farmer and Pastor, as well as nephew, Jonathan Scott presiding.

Visitation will be held from 12 until 2 PM at the church. Burial will follow at White Church Cemetery. Colvin Funeral Home in Princeton is handling arrangements. 

The family would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to the Skilled Nursing Unit of Gibson General Hospital who took on such a caring role in Rex’s life. The family would also like to express a deep appreciation to the staff of the Gentiva Crisis Care Hospice Team who tenderly cared for Rex’s constant needs, ensuring that he was comfortable and pain-free in his final days. The reassurance and support given by every nurse and staff member was a blessing that will never be forgotten.
