It is with great sadness that the family of Scott E Atkinson announce his passing at the age of 90. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 64 years, Doris Atkinson; his three children, Debbie A Crabtree (Eddie Crabtree), Brenda Anders (Rodney Anders), Kenny Atkinson (Sherrie Atkinson); two grandchildren, Ashley Marshall (Tim Marshall) and Aaron Atkinson; Scott is also survived by his brother, Russell Atkinson.
A day and time for his celebration of life will be announced as soon as possible for his family and many friends. Service will be held at Valley Word Church where he was a founding member.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Dock and Clara; his brothers, Taylor, Clarence, Hampton; and his sisters, Merle, Bonnie, and Marion. He is also survived by many cousins, nephews, nieces, and great friends.
Scott will be remembered by everyone he met as a gentle and loving man. If you met him, you were impacted by his life. He loved the Lord and was a great example in his Christian walk for everyone that knew him. He was always there for anyone that needed him.
He also loved his garden and fed so many people with his fresh vegetables every summer. He had a great sense of humor and kept us laughing, he really believed that “a merry heart does good like a medicine”.
Scott retired from GE after 32 years and worked as a greeter at the Salem Walmart for eight years after his retirement.
For all of us who loved him, it seems like a great loss, but we have the hope and assurance that we will see him again soon.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his honor to Valley Word Church PO Box 846 Salem VA 24153.

We were so sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. He was a wonderful neighbor. We always enjoyed his wonderful smile when entering Walmart & his kindness as he delivered his vegetables to all the lucky people in the neighborhood! Most of all our little chats of life and family...He was one of the sweetest people we have ever had the privilege of knowing. I know he will be missed by many. Please know that the family will be in our thoughts and prayers!
