August 19, 1968 - May 13, 2017
James “Jimmy” Scott passed away on 5/13/2017 in Midland, Texas from a massive heart attack. He was 48 years old.
Jimmy was born in Garland, Texas on August 19, 1968 and grew up in the Garland area. When he was a teenager, he moved with his family to the Rio Grande Valley and then to Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1990, soon after graduating from high school in Las Vegas, he returned to Texas, settling in Irving. He worked for many years for TBN and attended college off and on as he could to obtain his degree. After leaving TBN, he took various airline related jobs to stay as close to the industry as he could until he was able to achieve his dream of being a commercial pilot. In September 2016 having obtained his commercial pilot license, he achieved that dream when he began flying for Martinaire as a captain. It meant absolutely everything to him.
Jimmy is survived by his parents, Richard and Joanne Scott; brothers, David Scott and Gary Scott; sisters and brother-in-law, Stephanie and Jeff Ford, Lori Scott; nephew, Weston Scott; and nieces Ashley, Alyssa and Jessica Scott.
Jimmy loved flying, God, friends, family, fishing, traveling and attending family events to see everyone. He never met a stranger – the world was his friend. Jimmy will be forever in our hearts and memories. He was one of a kind.
Services will be on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at 1:00 pm in the Brooks Family Chapel of the North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234.
