James Scott, Sr., 59, of Pittston, passed away on December 24th, 2022, at Allied Services Hospice Center, Wilkes-Barre. He was born in Wilkes-Barre on November 8, 1963 and was the son of the late Henry and Mary Williams Scott.
James was a 1982 graduate of Pittston Area High School. He worked for 15 years for the Techneglas Corp. until the time of its closing. Jim was then employed by Popple Construction and was currently employed by New Enterprise Trucking and Paving, Pittston.
James was a very hard worker. He took much pride in his work ethic and was very handy. If it was broke Jim could fix it. He was an avid collector of antique fine automobiles and took much pride in the vehicles he owned over the years. His most cherished was his 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air.
If Jim was not spending his free time working in his garage, he enjoyed attending many local and regional antique car shows, but most of all he enjoyed spending time with his sons and his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
James is survived by his sons, James Scott, Jr. and Joshua Scott both of Pittston; his grandsons Connor and Grayson Scott; and his siblings Sharon Roxby, of Gouldsboro, David Scott and his wife Eve, of Weatherly, Denise and her husband Alfred Roxby, of Jenkins, Brian Scott, of Gouldsboro, Geraldine Kinney, of Wilkes-Barre, and Ann Marie Reseigh, of Dupont. Also surviving are his ex-spouse Lisa Smyden Scott, of Jenkins and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother-in-law Raymond Roxby and his father-in-law Robert Smyden.
