Family, friends and former co-workers of Tony Scott said Elizabethtown is nursing a gaping void with the death of one its most resilient residents.
Scott, a fixture in Elizabethtown government for 38 years, died shortly after midnight Tuesday at Jewish Hospital in Louisville. He was 67.
Carla Scott, Scott’s daughter-in-law, said he contracted cerebral palsy at birth and was not expected to live past age 16. The prognosis proved false, she said, as he tackled every aspect of his life with enthusiasm and vigor.
