Scott, Nathaniel Obituary

On Monday afternoon, December 1, 2014, God sent his Angel of mercy to whisper "Peace Be Thine" in the ear of our beloved, Nathaniel Tilman Scott, and summoned him to his eternal home.

Scottie, as he was affectionately known, was born November 14, 1935, to the late Will and Emmie Scott in Edgefield, South Carolina. He was the youngest of eight children, and was a product of the South Carolina Public School system, where he graduated from Edgefield Academy. Years later, he moved to Washington, DC, where he met the love of his life, Mittie Ruth Glenn, whom he was married to for over fifty years. Mittie's caregiving to Scottie, particularly as his health declined, was a true testament of her love and devotion to him. She was truly the wind beneath his wings.

Scottie was very much a family man; his family was the love of his life. He worked hard to make sure that his family was well taken care of and never wanted for anything. Through the years, he held several management positions in the beverage industry in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

Scottie was a faithful member of Bethesda Baptist Church in Washington, DC, for over 46 years, occupying the same seat each Sunday. He believed and lived by the Word of God. He was a dedicated member of the Transportation Ministry. He loved his church and church family. His faith in God remained steadfast until the very end.

He leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife: Mittie; daughter: Cathy Holman; son: Wayne Daugett (Patricia); stepson: Paul Glenn; sisters: Emmie Green and Lula Smith; grandchildren: Savannah Holman, Jalyn, Nicole, Laticia and Wayne Daugett, Nakeshia Rawlings; and lifelong friend: Willie Adams. He is also survived by nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives and friends. Five of his siblings preceded him in death: Forrest and Virgil Scott, Willie Mae Weaver, Eddye Johnson, and Mary Daniels.

When I am gone, just release me, let me go – so I can move into my afterglow. You mustn't tie me down with your tears; let's be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love, you can only guess how much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, but now it's time I travel on alone. So grieve for me awhile, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted with trust. It's only for a while that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart. And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home."

Scottie was a true blessing – a gift from God – and will continue to live in our hearts forever.
