Kenneth DeWayne Scott was born on April 24, 1964, as the son of the late Deacon Troy and Barbara Scott in Bibb County, Macon, Georgia.
Affectionately known as "Kent" and "Kenny," Kenneth could be described in three words – hard worker, mentor, and dapper.
To make for a better life, the Scott family moved to Boston, Massachusetts, in 1979, where he resided for most of his life. He graduated from Dorchester High School, where he had the unique opportunity to attend Hubert Humphrey Occupational Resource Center (HHORC) and learn construction skills. After graduating from Dorchester High, he began working in the construction field. Those who genuinely know Kenny knew his passion was construction. He was a meticulous master carpenter with a keen eye and vision for detail. Kenny also attended Northeastern University to enhance his project management skills, which helped launch his many businesses over the years, most notably Scott Construction, Inc. and K. Scott Contracting, LLC. In 1987, he began Scott Construction and worked on large projects under the Carpenters Union. Such projects included working on the Braintree Bridge and sewage plant in Quincy. One of his many skills was in the Information Technology field, where he repaired computers. For over a decade and a half, Kenny worked at Amtrak most recently as a General Foreman OPS Engineer in the Thackman department.
Kenny loved dogs, especially American Pitbull Terriers. He had two dogs in particular that he often spoke about, Rage and Jasmine. His love for dogs was equal to his love for maple walnut ice cream, vanilla bean ice cream, and carrot cake.
He was a big sports fan and became coach of his son's baseball team, the Monarchs, the Upper Roxbury North Dorchester Little League, and Roberto Clemente Little League. Kenny mentored many youths and even helped the player Manny Del Carman who later played in the Major League.
Even at 58, Kenny leaves a legacy behind with his wife, Rhonda Scott, his mother, Barbara Scott, and his three children – Brian McCray, Martin McCray, and Barbara McCray. His siblings are Troy, Sherman (Leilani), and Inga. His grandchildren Zyer, Anias, Nathaniel, Destiny, Jasziah, Avery, Jaiyana, and Phenix. His niece, Genesis, and nephew, Josiah. His uncles, Robert and Billy. His aunts, Alma, Betty, and Hattie. His stepchildren, John, Jazzy, and Keke, and a host of cousins in both the Scott and Taylor families.
He was preceded by his grandfathers, grandmothers, father, Deacon Troy Scott, and his son (fraternal twin to Barbara), DeWayne Kenneth.
Kenny will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
