I have known Buzzy since kindergarten at First Presbyterian --Then through elementary ,Daniels and Broughton.  He was  always  so kind and considerate to all, and so smart. This news saddens me.    marian little steffner

I first met Buzzy Scott in the 7th grade at Daniels Jr High School and we shared several classes together during our time there and probably a few more at NBHS. We both survived algebra class with Mary B. Canon in the 9th grade and Buzzy and I could both share quite a few stories from those days. Buzzy was a great guy, seemed to enjoy life, and had a smile on his face for everyone.

I remember Buzzy as such a nice guy. Didn't stay in touch beyond Broughton but this is from his obituary:

E. Hughes "Buzzy" Scott, Jr., 61, passed away on Sunday, March 6, 2011 after several months of declining health. Buzzy was born in Columbia, South Carolina on April 29, 1949. He and his family moved to Raleigh when he was one year of age. He was a 1967 graduate of Needham B. Broughton High School, and a graduate of East Carolina University. Prior to becoming disabled in 1989, Buzzy owned and operated E. Hughes Scott, Jr. and Associates which specialized in providing athletic insurance for colleges and universities.

He is predeceased by his parents E. Hughes Scott, Sr. and Elizabeth Burnside Scott, and a brother John Marvin Scott.
He is survived by a son, John Hughes Scott and fiance, Prudence Kane Lyon of Raleigh; a daughter, Margaret Elizabeth Scott and fiance William Schorr Robinson of Charlotte.

Yesterday was Buzzy's birthday.  How would have been 69. 

Buzzy was my childhood best friend - all through Sherwood Bates and Daniels.  We were inseparable.  We even produced a neighborhood event called the B & B Circus complete with bike tricks, dog tricks and I'm not sure what else.  I don't remember whether anyone other than our parents came.  It really didn't matter.  

Not having anything else to do one summer day, Buzzy and I got out our snow sleds and slid down this steep (but short) pine straw covered hill (off Banbury Rd) and tumbled into a dry creek bed.  It was fast and no one got hurt or cold!  Summer fun!

Buzzy was the last of his immediate family - his younger brother and both parents passed before he did.  The last time I saw him was down at Morehead City as he was leaving Captain Bill's Restaurant one evening.  

Watching the sunrise on Bogue Sound yesterday morning, Buzzy came to mind.  A good friend and good memories.  You left us too soon!
