Dec. 29, 1974-April 27, 2021

James Scott Alexander of Provencal, known to family and friends as Scott, known at work as James, and to everyone else as “Alabama.” left us unexpectedly April 27, 2021, and completely ruined his sister-in-law’s birthday. To anyone that knows him, you know he got a kick out of that.

He was born Dec. 29, 1974, in Birmingham, Ala., to Philip Ray Alexander and the late Alta Faye Alexander.

He is survived by his wife of 17 years, Lisa Scarbrough Alexander; father, Philip Ray Alexander; brother, Philip Paul Alexander and wife Shelli; two sisters-in-law, Rebecca Carbin (Steven), and Bailey Tarver (Christian); and his mother-in-law, Judy Davis.

Scott was the funny guy in the room. Sarcastic, rude and if he insulted you, he did, indeed, like you. A lifelong Alabama Crimson Tide and L.A. Raiders fan, he enjoyed poking fun at LSU and Dallas Cowboys fans. He was so full of life and laughter and enjoyed talking trash with his uncle, JR Davis.

Health issues plagued him the last few years of his life, but he was a hard worker and had a tremendous support group at Weyerhaeuser in Natchitoches.

His wife would like to personally thank every single person that visited, called and gave him joy.  I know that he gave his coworkers grief, but he only teased the ones he cared about.

If Scott left anything behind in this world, it was his love and humor. He loved his wife, he loved his family and had a special place in his heart for his two nieces, Lily Carbin and Shelbi Mitchell.

He deserved a better ending, but he will never not be loved, and never forgotten.

At his request, he did not want a funeral, and to quote his favorite movie, Tombstone, “Well…bye.”
