Arles Scott Greene “Scotty” passed away Sunday, January 15, 2017. Scotty was born May 24, 1970 in Morristown, TN to parents Arles B. Greene and Connie Anne DePriest Ellzey.
He was preceded in death by his daughter Kaitlyn Greene and grandparents, Eugene Wright and Veda B. Greene.
Scotty is survived by his son and daughter, Bailey and Alyssa Greene; wife, Jennifer Greene; father, Arles B. and wife Debbie; mother, Connie Anne DePreist Ellzey and husband Bill; brother, Wesley and wife Elizabeth Greene; sister, Shelley Thrower; grandparents, Robert and Mary DePriest; mother-in-law, Rebecca Keller; nephews and nieces, Heath and Heather Greene, Tenssley and Addyson Thrower, Greyson Dobis.
Scotty was a much loved son, brother, husband, father and a man who loved Jesus. His children, family, hunting, fishing and being outdoors brought him great joy. From an early age Scotty began hunting and traveled the world looking to add to his collection of mounted animals. He started Scotty Greene Adventures to share his joy of hunting with friends, old and new and traveled to remote locations such as Alaska, Canada, Spain, New Zealand and throughout the US. He will be remembered as a man who gave to others his huge smile, who loved hard and played hard, who was never ashamed to talk about God with other people. He had a love of music and a fabulous voice to share with the world. Scotty had an amazing love for life that he experienced with a number of very close friends and family. He was always happiest sharing his love of hunting with his son Bailey. He worked alongside his father and brother for many years as "Vice President of ABG Caulking," in the family business and was excellent at his trade. Scotty will be remembered by his family and friends for his huge heart, his excitement for the things in life where he found his greatest joy, and he happily shared that joy with others.

    Arles and Family:
    So sorry to hear of Scotties death. You know, they say that we, as parents, are not supposed to outlive our children. But sometimes God has different plans for our lives. I’m sure that for whatever reason God took him, that he is now resting in peace. I just want you to know that I think of you often and will be praying for you and all the family.

    God Bless you and all the rest of the fa mily.

    I wish I had a copy of this video it’s beautiful. I haven’t seen or talked to you in a while. I never thought that I would never see your beautiful smile ever again or here you laugh. Never thought I’d be sitting here hating that I didn’t get to say goodbye or feel that id miss you. I just always thought you’d be here.I never thought I’d half to say goodbye. But you will always be my family. My cousin Scotty.I love you and will always carry you with me in my heart. And will miss you always. ? I know you are happy sitting with our king and your daughter looking down on all of us with that big beautiful smile of yours And your singing with the angels now. So I wouldn’t call you away from that joy even if I could. But just would love to call you back for just 1 minute to say goodbye and give you a big hug and kiss your cheak and tell you I love you and will miss you forever until I see you on the other side. I have a picture that was found of us when I was at your house up there in Tennessee I was 14.I remember that picture. I will cherish it for the rest of my life. I love you. Rip Scotty
