Charles Bennet Scott
July 21, 1956 ~ February 6, 2024 (age 67) 67 Years Old
Charles Bennet Scott, (Chuck) age 67, entered into the loving arms of his Father on February 6th, 2024, after a courageous seven year battle with cancer. His final hours were spent surrounded by his family, singing hymns and praising the God he so faithfully followed for his blessed life.
Chuck was born July 21,1956 in Waterbury to Gerald and Pauline (Freeman) Scott. The fifth of seven children, Chuck grew up in Naugatuck, and studied machinery at Emmett O’Brien Technical High School. Chuck used his mechanically inclined brain with great purpose as a precision machinist, working in his last position at Glastonbury Gage for 26 years before retiring in 2021. He was known for his expertise in his work and well loved by his work family. He was a man with unmatched work ethic and the conviction that he could fix anything.
In his free time, he loved to metal detect, always pursuing his surroundings as he drove, looking for old foundations to explore. He feared no recipe and loved to spend an afternoon cooking something for his family to enjoy. Without fail, his soups were big hits and earned their place in the book of “Chuck’s Awesomest Recipes”. He enjoyed tinkering with his numerous tractors and small engines around the yard. Never willing to consider anything junk, he fixed things time and time again, and often did so for friends as well.
Chuck loved his family like none other. Whether they referred to him as honey, dad, brother, or papa, not a day went by where his love could not be felt. Be it through an encouraging text, ribeye steaks on the grill to celebrate an accomplishment, one more ride along on the tractor, or a willingness to drop everything at a moment's notice to help with even the littlest of things, no one ever questioned, not even for a second, the love he had for his family.
Most importantly, Chuck was a righteous man of God. He lived out his faith, and set an example to everyone around him of what a Godly husband, father, and friend should look like. He had a servant’s heart and he desired to share about the friend he had in Jesus with everyone he came across.
He is predeceased by his parents, Gerald and Pauline (Freeman) Scott and his brothers, Freeman and Daniel Scott. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Janet (Conway) Scott and his children, Charles, Grace, Laura, Evan and Charity (Nelson) Scott. His grandchildren Wesley and Luke Tebo, Brandon, Bennett, Avery, and Peyton Scott also survive him, as well as his siblings Morton, Philip, Barbara, and Alison Scott and numerous nieces and nephews.
