Lawrence Scott

June 14, 1948 — September 12, 2020

Tahlequah

Lawrence "ᏙᏧᏩ" Scott, Son of Joe Scott and Lyndia Adair, was born on June 14, 1948 in the heart of the Cherokee Nation Reservation in Tahlequah, OK.  He passed from this life on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at his home while surrounded by his wife and closest family.

Lawrence grew up in Cherry Tree where he loved to fish, hunt mushrooms, wild onion and gather herbs for medicine.  Lawrence loved to spend his spare time going to yard sales, gospel singings, and attending and having hog fries.  But his favorite moments were when he gathered with his family.

Lawrence was also a proud Vietnam Veteran and during his Military Career he performed a handful of job duties and received several metals.  One of his favorite jobs was when he was a tank driver because in his words “I got to run everything over.”  But his proudest award was when he earned his sharpshooter merit.

After serving in the U.S. Army for several years Lawrence returned home and later worked and retired from Schwan’s Bakery.

Lawrence gave his life to the Lord on December 24, 2008 in the presence of Rev. Blue Hothouse and became a faithful member of Indian Mission Church in Greasy, OK.

He was preceded in death by both parents, a great granddaughter Haidon Lenae Adair, Brothers Joe Scott, Baby Boy Adair, Sisters: Wanda Nakedhead, Nina Waeltz and Baby Girl Adair and dearest cousins Ruby Bunch Hernandez, and Nancy Bunch Gonzalis.
