William Duane "Billy" Scott, age 53, of Orlando, passed away on Saturday, March 24, 2018. A lifelong resident of Orlando he was the son of John Bogue Scott, Jr, and Bonnie Sue Hackworth Scott. He graduated from Maynard Evans High School in Orlando (Class of 1982). After high school he married his childhood sweetheart Cindy Huth, but they divorced some time after his accident.
Billy worked for the Operating Engineers, and later at Fred's Crane Service. It was while working there, that he fell and broke his back, which left him a paraplegic and having to use a wheelchair the rest of his life. Billy was always a very good mechanic, and loved his Harley Davidson Motorcycles, as well as his cars. He would help anyone he could with fixing their cars or motorcycles. His mechanical aptitude dates back to when he was in high school where he had a Camaro, and then he built his 4 wheel drive pick-up both were his pride and joy. His first Harley he got was after he was in a wheelchair, it came home and was a true basket case, as that is how he brought it home. He built it to where he could hand crank the motor and then proceeded with help of his dad to engineer the shifter to be able to ride it. He won several awards for his bikes over the years.
Billy was preceded in death by both of his parents, a nephew Andrew Lee Scott, and step-father James Edward King. Billy leaves to cherish his memory, brother Michael Scott (Lynn Waters-Scott) of Liberty, IL of Liberty, IL, Brother John B. Scott, III (Sandy Scott) of West Branch, MI, a step-mother Debra Scott of Orlando, FL, and a nephew Jonathan Scott of Liberty, IL. , along with other relatives and friends.
