Scottie Lee Maxwell remembrance


Scottie Lee Maxwell was born on May 27, 1954 in Kingsport, TN to the late Mildred and Henry Maxwell.
Scottie was a graduate of Dobyns-Bennett High School in Kingsport, TN in 1973.  He was a skilled mechanic specializing in large trucks and over the road equipment. He worked for the Kingsport City Garage maintaining their fleet of vehicles. Scottie enjoyed working on cars and even owned his own business. He eventually became an over the road truck driver transporting goods and materials with his chihuahua sidekick “Bubbie” never far from his side. They traveled many miles together over the years; Bubbie brought him comfort and companionship.
Scottie had a sharp wit and dry sense of humor which kept you on your toes but always left you smiling or laughing. His huge smile was infectious and he never met a stranger. He was a history buff and spent time researching the Maxwell/Norman family history. He loved flying and had logged several hours toward becoming a pilot of small engine planes. Scottie lived in several states during his travels including Nevada, Georgia, and Florida but was grateful to be back home in Tennessee near family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Viola and William Norman; sister, Patricia Maxwell Span; brothers, Charles Fred Maxwell and James “Bo Pete” Maxwell; aunt, Marie Norman Erwin; uncle, Edward “June” Norman; nieces, Mariah Maxwell and Jeannine Norman; and nephew, Rendell Early.
Scottie leaves to cherish his memory, daughter, Erica Beard Campbell of Columbia, SC; son, Scottie Lorenzo Maxwell of Greenville, TN; two brothers, William “Scooter” Maxwell, Sr. of Kingsport, TN, and Charles “Dee Dee” Maxwell of Kingsport, TN; four sisters, Elizabeth Maxwell Wood (James) of Gate City, VA, Linda Wise of Kingsport, TN, Argretta Maxwell Simon of Smyrna, TN, and Angela Maxwell Squires (Thomas) of Cincinnati, OH; numerous grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins; and a host of friends and loved ones encountered during his various travels across many states.
