Obituary for Whitney Scott

Whitney “Bear” Scott began his life journey on May 4, 1947 in Garyville, LA. He was the son of the late Virginia Duhe-Sarah and the late Marshall Scott. On July 19, 1980, Whitney married Yvonne Hansley.

Whitney enjoyed being surrounded by those who knew him most. He enjoyed family and friends, mostly just clowning and passing time. “Bear” would have you laughing endlessly or until your side would start to hurt. He was truly a blessing to everyone. He had a very different way with words, if you can catch my drift. He held no punches, nor did he hold his tongue. We will truly miss his sense of humor.

Whitney realized that this earth was no longer his home and was called to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, April 2, 2020.

His legacy continues to live through his children: Carey Edwards of New Orleans, LA, Kendrick Scott, Sr. of LaPlace, LA, Carisa (Mark) Russell of Paulina, LA and Keantrielle Woods of Kenner, LA; grandchildren: Darielle Russell, Eva Johnson, Kendrinecia Scott, Kendrick Scott, Jr., and Keilah Scott; brothers and sisters: Lawrence Sarah, Walter Scott, Linda Walker and Carol Williams.

Whitney is preceded in death by his parents Virginia Duhe-Sarah and Marshall Scott, brothers: Morris Sarah and Joseph Scott, and sister Joyce Weston.
