Celebrating the life of
Gregory Scott, Sr.
September 20, 1956 - August 08, 2023
Gregory Scott Sr. died on August 8th, 2023.
Greg was a Savannah native who was born on September 20th, 1956. As a young man, Greg served as a Sheriff’s Deputy for Chatham County. He went on to complete a criminal justice degree at Armstrong State University and an MBA at Savannah State University. Greg spent many years working as a claims specialist before ultimately becoming the Risk Manager for Chatham County. While he is known to many through his jobs, Greg was, first and foremost, a family man. With Angela, his wife of forty years, he raised Gregory, Jr. and Melissa. He was also the proud grandfather of Gregory Jr.’s daughter, Leila. To his friends and family, Greg was many things. However, he is most often described as a nice guy who always had a joke to share or an outrageous football prediction to make.
Greg’s funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, August 12th, 2023 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.The family will receive friends for one hour prior to the service.
The Wuest family will be forever grateful for having Greg (and Angie, Gregory and Leila) come into our life through his daughter Melissa. As his sister noted in a Facebook post, his shining presence was like a North Star to all who knew him. His gifts were many — the ability to make you feel loved and appreciated, his encouragement when you needed it most, his willingness to help you no matter the circumstances or time of day. Always, always there for our daughter Emily, whom he treated like a 2nd daughter. We will never, ever forget his many kindnesses. We are even going to miss his truly terrible dad jokes. We will always be reminded of his immense joy in his family and try our very best to lead our lives the way he led his — with laughter, hugs and sweet love. Greg, you will be dearly missed. with love, Patricia, Tom, Emily, T.J. and Ariel Wuest

What an unfathomable and tragic loss. I got to know Greg through his granddaughter Leila, who is my granddaughter's friend. I also work for Chatham County. May God be with you through this tragic time. I am lifting the family up in prayers.

If Greg was alive and in his comedian persona, he would Crack up at the way his life ended. In Insurance and Risk Management for decades and a Freak Weather related accident takes him away from us. I worked with him for several years at WI Windsor Group. Great and funny man. So grateful for knowing him

So very sorry for your loss. Greg was one of the best! He always expressed his love for his family and constantly bragged about how wonderful his children and his granddaughter were . His smile, friendship, wit and sense of humor will be greatly missed. As well as his big heart and willingness to help others. He truly earned his wings. Rest in power and peace my friend.

I knew Greg as the Brother-in-law to Jimmy & Fran Lozen. He help Jimmy on bigger jobs at my house over the years. Since I was an Insurance Agent, He and I shared many Insurance stories. I will always remember and cherish his smile and humor. To his family he will be remember by many diverse occupants in Savannah from County Commissioners to family he was on the way to deliver a check on Monday night during that storm. May his soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed Rest In Peace!

My husband and I were lucky to meet Mr. Scott during our search for a new home. I was 7 months pregnant when we first viewed the Scott family home that had been on the market for 30 minutes, and Greg was at the house when we arrived. Our short viewing turned in to a couple of hours of conversation about the amazing home, the family memories stored within the walls, and lots of jokes told between he and my husband. He told us at closing it was the jokes that got us this house! We will forever be grateful to him. We didn’t know him well, but we knew that he was a kind and loving man who cared so deeply for his family. This is an absolutely tragic loss, and we are sending all of our love and support to everyone who loved him, especially his wife and children. May he rest peacefully.

We were so sorry to hear about Greg. I worked with him at the sheriff’s office in Savannah years ago and it was a pleasure to know him.
- Barry and Diane Stevenson, Jacksonville, Fl
Greg was such a wonderful person. When I started working as Magistrate Court's Judge/Clerk/Court Administrator three years ago, Greg made it a special point to welcome me onboard. He not only checked back to see if I had any questions on county programs and provide assistance , but he took time to get to know me. I loved hearing his stories about how much he loved his family. There are just no adequate words to provide comfort. Greg was a blessing to everyone he met, and my heart goes out to his family on such a tremendous loss.
- Tracie Macke, Savannah, GA
We extend our condolences to the family. We both had the honor of working with Greg at Chatham County. Whenever he was asked how he was doing, he would say if he was any better, he wouldn’t know what to do with himself. He was one of the most positive and cheerful people we knew. He never met a stranger and let’s not even talk about his jokes. He will truly be missed!
- Michael and Ramona Johnson, Savannah, GA
Greg was my one of my favorite cousins . We grew up together starting from feeding each other butter when we were babies. We were always there for each other. He loved his family and especially his children and his granddaughter. He was always there with a joke. I’m going to miss him so much. This was such a shock to us all. I’ll miss you so much. I love you.
- Debbie Sheley, Guyton, GA

Greg, I will miss you and your daily dad jokes. I will also miss all the great talks we had about family. Thank you for always being kind to me and taking the time out just to say “hi”. My condolences to the Scott family.

My love and prayers are with the Scott Family as they deal with this terrible tragedy. Greg’s father, Neil, worked with my dad. He used to give me a rise to school (Sacred Heart) when the weather was too bad to walk. The Scott Family has a very special place in my memories. May Greg rest in peace

Sending my prayer and condolences in the loss of a great man with a heart of gold. I had the absolute pleasure of knowing him when we worked together in Atlanta. He loved his family so much and never complained about traveling back and forth, but only how he loved to take care of his family. His granddaughter had his heart ❤️ from the beginning. He presence will be missed and even though it’s been years since we saw each other. I had plans to visit so we could go out for lunch he could take more on a tour of Savannah and meet the family I always heard about. I so wish I could’ve gotten there sooner, but I know his spirit lives on. God has gained an angel.
- Nicole Gibert, Kennesaw, GA
Greg will surely be missed. He was a man that encouraged others. He loved his family and I cannot express the hurt that this has caused amongst the risk management world. He was one of the best and caring clients that I had the honor of working with. He would make us laugh with his puns and challenge me during work. Thank you for being apart of my life and I am glad that we met.

I AM A RESIDENT IN CHATHAM COUNTY I HAD JUST MEET MR. SCOTT A FEW DAY JUST BEFORE HE PASSED VERY NICE GUY WHEN WE SPOKE ON THE PHONE ABOUT A ROAD ON QUACCO PRAYING FOR THE FAMILY
- RENESA CRUMLEY, SAVANNAH, GA
My heart broke to hear of the loss of Greg. He was brightest light in every way. Please know how much he loved his family and friends. That’s all he spoke about as he told his wonderful detailed stories. After we parted professionally, we tried to connect annually when we would visit for St. Patty’s day or when he came up to Atlanta for work. He always made time for us. We will miss his Savannah walking tours. May we learn from his light and live into it in his honor.

Angela Aliffi here....so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of everyone in the family. May God bless you all.
- Angela M Brisendine, Screven, Georgia
Greg was a very good Christian man who always took the time to help anyone in need. He was a very good father and grandfather and love them all dearly. He was always supportive of their achievements throughout their lives. He lived life to the fullest and was involved in many activities, clubs and social events. His great compassion for his brothers and sisters in Christ will be sadly missed but forever remembered in the hearts of so many. Rest in peace with Jesus Christ my dear friend.
