Charles H. Scott, 74, of Ludowici, Georgia departed this life on Saturday, April 29, 2023. He was born on April 22, 1949, to the late Marcus B. and Canzola C.R.L. Scott in Ludowici, GA. He attended Walker Elementary and Walker High School, graduating from Liberty High School in 1968.
In November 1968, he was drafted into the United States Army, where he served as an Aircraft Powertrain Repairman. During his time in service, he deployed in support of the Vietnam War, earning the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and the Vietnam Campaign Medal. He served honorably until his separation in November 1971. After the Army, Charles spent his years in Florida, Georgia, and California. Ultimately, he settled back home in Georgia on the Broadlevel, in the early ’80s.
