He was born on July 26, 1953 in Hot Springs, the son of Doyle and Carlene Henderson. On October 19, 1974, he married Lora L. Shell. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Scott was a member of the West Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. He was a devoted full-time minister. He received his Bachelor of Science in Education, his Master of Science in Educational Administration and pursued a doctorate in education.
