Scott Thomas Ward, 56, of Dyersburg, Tennessee died on Saturday, January 21, 2023, at Baptist Memorial Hospital-East in Memphis, Tennessee.
Born Tuesday, March 1, 1966, in Painesville, Ohio, he was the son of the late Samuel Orson and Sue Carol Colley Ward. Scott was a dedicated employee of Marvin Windows for twenty three years. He started his career as a production worker in the warehouse and was then promoted to forklift operator before becoming Warehouse Manager. Scott was a dedicated professional, who was proud to have experienced all phases of the warehouse operations and was blessed to call the employees his work family. His family always considered him the kindest and most thoughtful person that they knew and would always look forward to receiving the seasonal and birthday card that would always arrive before anyone else. In his spare time he enjoyed traveling-especially to the beach, working in his yard and cooking. Scott loved all types of music and would always let you know all about the artist performing the songs.
