PLEASANT GARDEN: W. Scott Barton passed away unexpectedly at his home from natural causes on December 27, 2019. A lifelong resident of Pleasant Garden, he was born February 23, 1957 to William H. Barton and Ollie McIntyre Barton.
Scott was a 1975 graduate of Southeast Guilford High School and worked in home restorations for many years. He was a lover of bluegrass, country and classic rock and roll from the 1960s-1980s. He spent countless hours playing guitar and jamming with friends, especially during high school and in the years following. Most recently, Scott worked for Grandover Resort in Greensboro.
He was preceded in death by his parents, stepmother Jimmi Dunham Barton, brother-in-law CF Houglan, stepsister-in-law Cathy Dunham and stepbrother-in-law Griff Deal. He is survived by his sisters Pam Barton Houglan of Greensboro; Kathy Barton McClellan and husband George of Oak Ridge, NC; stepbrother Danny Dunham of Climax; stepbrother Keith Dunham and wife Kim of Climax; and stepsister Cathy Dunham Deal of Candler, NC, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
A graveside service will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 12 noon at Lakeview Memorial Park, 3600 N. O'Henry Blvd. (Hwy 29 N.) Greensboro. Immediately following, everyone is invited to lunch and a celebration of Scott’s life at Hagan-Stone Park, 5920 Hagan-Stone Park Rd., shelter #5, Pleasant Garden. As Scott would have preferred, casual dress is suggested for both events.
Donations may be made to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, 636 Morris Tpk., Ste. 3-A, Short Hills, NJ 07078, or to the charity of the donor's choice.
