Eddie was born January 14, 1963, in Fayetteville and grew up in Shelbyville. He was educated from the Bedford County school system. Eddie loved to color, was exceptional at freestyle drawing, and loved wood craft. He was a free spirit, he believed in living life carefree his way. Eddie would decide it was “time to take a walk” and would make friends, and a home wherever he landed. He lived in many cities throughout Ohio and New Jersey. It has often been said, there is not a stranger that Eddie did not meet, he had a conversation and a smile for anyone that crossed his path. Eddie learned to earn a living by becoming a handyman. Many people would tell you how good his work was, but they would also say, “if you want the job finished, don’t let him take a beer break”! Eddie moved back to Tennessee and after an extended stay in a rehab facility in Dickson, he achieved his proudest accomplishment, 5 years of sobriety which he would proudly share with anyone he had a conversation with. Eddie loved “getting on their level” and playing with his grand-nephews, Kaleb and Joel.
In addition to his parents, Edward W. Scott,Sr. and Alvirleen Buchanan Bright Scott, Eddie was preceded in death by his son, Eddie Dewayne Scott; brothers, Joel Bright and Bishop Herbert Bright.
