Norman Eugene Scott Sr, went to be with the Lord December 30, 2020. He was born December 26, 1959 to Bert H. Scott and Netttie E. Lindsay in Indianapolis, Ind. Norman was a very bright and talented young child that was always known to the family as the smart one, he had a very wise vocabulary as young boy that was out of this world for a 5yrs. He was very involved in sports, loved football he became one of the best players for Tabernacle Presbyterian Church and continued until age 12. Norman attended Shortridge High School going on to worked for an Professional Architect firm in Indianapolis. He was an artist at heart always loved to draw was very creative. Working in the company they gave him bigger projects and a brief case that may him feel even more important. I can remember him telling me all times “See you use to think my drawing was silly but look at me now” .
Later in years he obtained a job with Arlington High School as a Support Aide in the Special Education
Dept, carrying for a young man that had Cerebral Palsy as time went on they became very close friends. His heart was big when it came to working with this young man and the close relationship that he gain with the family also. Norman, was a big help to our father whose became ill he lived with him until his death.
Norman became sicken with Cancer and had a long battle until his death, his long time friend Shari Summers had been with him throughout his illness, taking him to appointments and helping with medication. Norman always had a heart and soul that was matched by his great personality. When he was admitted to Community East Hospital he was withdrawn and depressed about being in the hospital. With a birthday closely approaching he wanted to be close to family our mother went before Thanksgiving. Norman talked about how much he enjoyed her visit in the upcoming weeks Norman felt he wouldn’t make it until his birthday. That was my que that I needed to get to my brother and those were the best three days.
The Doctor’s Nurses and staff on the fifth floor Oncology were the best, they made sure that my brother had anything that his heart desired. He was so happy and full of jokes during that visit. On the way home he called told me his body was doing something strange and that he loved me. I asked if he was in pain and he responded yes, that was the late time that I talked with my brother .
