He was preceded in death by his parents, Ephraim Edison “Pa Pete” Petry and Laura Elizabeth Morgan Petry; one sister, Brenda P. Fallo; three brothers, Darryl Petry, Mark Petry, Danny Roy Petry and one brother-in-law, Danny Bertucci.
Born in New Orleans on November 21, 1955, he lived most of his life in Westwego, La. He relocated to Crowley in January 1990, to begin his 20 year journey with Darlene and Danielle. Married for 15-plus years, he and Darlene made their home in the Ebenezer community. Scott, the dedicated family man, was a loving son, brother, friend, uncle, husband and father. He was a talented storyteller with lots of humor and never at a loss for words, gardener who grew beautiful roses, an accomplished artist, and singer with a beautiful tenor voice. He enjoyed praising God with the church choirs.
He was employed as a mechanic by Capitol Manufacturing for 19 plus years. Each time a mishap would occur at work, he would yell “You like that!!!” Scott very much enjoyed his job at Capitol and made many life-long friends.
Pallbearers include his nephews, Keith Millet, Jr., Blake Fallo, Jr., Jeremy Abshire, Jason Bertucci, Courtland Istre and his cousin, “Cuz” Ray Morgan.
Danielle loves her daddy and will miss him very much. Darlene and family would like you all to smile when you think of Scott.
