Charles Edward Scott, 92 of South Bend, went to be with the Lord at the Center for Hospice, Raclin House in Mishawaka on March 22, 2022.

They celebrated seventy three and half years of marriage before Louise passed away on February 17, 2021. 

He is survived by his children Lynn (Linda) Scott of Easley, South Carolina, Wayne (Karen) Scott of South Bend and Dorothy Scott of Mishawaka, along with 5 grandchildren:  Lisa (Todd) Carter, Pamela (Andy) King, Mike (Marie) Scott, Melissa (Dale) Shupert and Brian (Lisa) Scott, 16 great grandchildren; Matthew, Jacob, Kaitlyn, Mikaela, Sarah, Alleigh, Andrew, Alex, Annabelle, Cassi, Tyler, Hannah,  Natalie, Lucas, Ethan and Elizabeth and 1 great- great grandchild, Felix.  Surviving as well are his siblings Ray Scott, Lavelle (Charlie) Lard, Betty Lovvorn, “Pete” (Joyce) Scott, Joyce (Bobby) Scott, and Marie (Dee) Patterson.  His daughter, Dorris Rajski and his sister Sue Curry preceded him in death.

Visitation will be held from 3-5 pm Sunday, March 27, 2022, at Southside General Baptist Church, 1615 S Spring St, Mishawaka, IN 46544. There will also be one hour of visitation prior to the 11:00 am funeral service on Monday, March 28, 2022, at Southside General Baptist Church and interment will follow in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, Osceola.

Charles was employed for 40 years with Armco Steel (later ConTech Construction Products) until his retirement in 1992.  In his spare time, he loved working on old tractors and lawn mowers, restoring them to their original glory.  He also loved spending time outdoors, working in his garden, and attending auctions and sales.  Simple living was always enough for Charles.

Most of all, Charles loved the Lord with all his heart.  He was a founding member of Southside General Baptist Church and faithfully served as both a deacon and a trustee for many years.  He served as the hands and feet of Jesus when he read his bible, visited the sick and took time to pray for his family and the families of the church daily.
