Gary Thomas "Tom" Scott


Mr. Gary Thomas “Tom” Scott, age 79, of Greeneville, passed away at the Johnson City Medical Center on Sunday, August 27, 2023.

He was born in Johnson City on September 12, 1943, to the late Paul and Roslyn Scott.

Tom proudly served his country in the United States Army and was a man of great courage. He made a living as a truck driver and had many friends across the country. A talented guitarist, Tom played in many churches around the area over the years. He was a Christian who loved God and was loved by many. His kind heart was evident in all he did but it was especially seen with his love and devotion he gave to Colby, DJ, Morgan and Alexander after the loss of their father David. He was a sweet and gentle man and will be missed by so many.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his step-son, David James Randolph.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 32 years, Renda Scott; children, Pam Scott (Raymond), Byron Scott (Lisa), Ryan Scott (Roxanne); step-son, Jason Randolph (Sarah); step daughter-in-law, Susie Randolph; several grandchildren and step grandchildren, several great-grandchildren; many friends and extended family.
