Obituary

Mr. Charles "Chuck" Howard Scott passed away on December 5, 2017 in Austin, TX at the age of 71.

Chuck was born on March 30, 1946 in Brownwood, Texas to Conner and Irene Scott. He attended the University of Texas where he was a proud member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. Chuck was actively involved in the Austin real estate community. He was a passionate member of the Independence Title business development team. They will remember his unwavering optimism and charisma, as well as his ability to always make the whole room laugh.

Chuck is survived by his wife of 16 years, Dina Scott, and children and their spouses, Zachary Scott, Keith and Shannon Lowry, Ryan and Ariana Flores, and his dog Olive. He spent the most recent years welcoming grand children, Minor Lowry, Kaspar Lowry and Austin Flores, who were a major light in his life. His children remember him as a kind and loving father who encouraged them to pursue their goals.

The Peace of Wild Things
-by Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

His children want to share their words about their father.

Shannon Lowry

To Big Dawg, my dad, our wild thing turned day-blind star. The hard struggle is over but your love, your hilarious jokes and your amazing smile are with us forever. You taught me to love deeply, to be a caring friend, to make family wherever I go, to surround myself with people who love me.
And you even made it snow in Texas today. Good one.
I will find the calm knowing you are both the wild thing and the shining light in my life.
Rest in peace. Breathe easy. Hook'em God!

Keith Lowry

If life is a crapshoot I rolled a 7 with my father in-law. But it's with great sadness that I've had to say goodbye to Chuck Scott. He had world class bullshit (if you're not from Texas, that's a colloquial compliment). Despite my ineptitude with said 'bullshit' he nonetheless embraced me.
He always lifted me up. He took real interest in me and my pursuits. Our long lunches at Mongers, I'll always cherish.
He is now gone but his best traits were long ago handed down to his daughter Shannon, my wife, which I'll be eternally grateful for.
Big Dawg, I sure am going to miss you.

Ariana Flores

Chuck Scott was so much more than just my stepdad. He was one of my biggest supporters, the most proud father, grandfather and father in law, a dad to all of my girlfriends, a wise advice giver, a professional steak and Bloody Mary maker, a truly excellent husband, a fashion stylist, one of the most generous people I have ever met, a great storyteller, a comedian, one of my biggest confidants and one of my very best friends.
I hope he knew that I thought the world of him and I only wish I could have thanked him for loving my mom and I so much. My parents love was one of a kind and it was beautiful. He was beautiful. I'm going to miss my other dad-he was just so damn wonderful

Zach Scott

My dad was my best friend and biggest advocate. He was the best listener and always seemed to know the right thing to say. What I will miss most is the conversation we would share about life, love and happiness. Some of you already witnessed some of his health struggles over the years. My family and myself are at ease knowing that his suffering has ended. Even though no one was ready for him to leave... I know that he is at peace. I have already had an overwhelming amount of support and I cannot be more grateful for the amazing community of people that surrounds me. As I hear from more and more people it is clear that there was an outstanding positive influence that he provided to so many people. It is through his amazing sense of humor, charm, and love that he will continue to live on through everyone that he impacted. God only knows where I would be without him.

Ryan Flores

You will hear a lot of wonderful things about Chuck Scott. Everyone will say how funny he was and what a joy he was to be around. All of these things were confirmed the first time I had the pleasure of meeting him. He didn't know me at all but immediately made me feel a part of the family. This was the completely opposite reaction of what I expected from the father of my at the time new girlfriend. As the years passed I was proud to call Chuck not just a friend but more a father. He taught me so much in the time that I have known him and I will always remember the heart to heart conversations we would have when the girls would finally leave to go shopping. It was something we both looked forward to every weekend we would come to visit from The Woodlands. Whether it was talking golf, debating if Charlie Strong was the right guy for the job, or talking about what transpired in each others day or week I will never forget the bear hugs, tears and laughs that we shared together. Chuck Scott, what a guy. I love you pal.

The funeral will be at Weed-Corley-Fish (3125 N. Lamar Blvd.) on Saturday, December 9th, at 2 pm. All are welcome to celebrate his wonderful life.
