Mr. Scott Forbes

By September 9, 2017 Obituaries

SCOTT LARRIMORE FORBES, 60, of North Charleston, SC passed away September 8, 2017 in Charleston, SC. He was born on July 14, 1957 at the Old Naval Hospital, Charleston to Marvin and Charlie Faye (Howell) Forbes.

Scott is survived by his mother, Charlie Faye (Howell) Forbes, and his sisters, Missy Knoepfel (Rick) and Heather Holland (Bill). He was preceded in death by his father, a sister, Sharis “Tuffy” Elaine Evans, and his “Mema” Mae Wethington Howell.

The family will receive friends at the Shield of Faith Church at 1612 Foster Creek Road, in Hanahan, SC on Sept. 15 from 6-8 pm. Funeral services will be at the church on Sept. 16 at 2 pm with Pastor Bob Tilton officiating with remembrances from Scott’s former pastor, Bill Davis, of Blessed Hope Baptist Church. Interment will be at Carolina Memorial Gardens.

Scott started out in life with many strikes against him which caused limitations, but he pushed ahead against the challenges and persisted with his goal of being the best he could be. Life handed him lemons, but he loved lemonade. He also loved his family, his train collection, the beach, and being his mom’s helper/protector. He is also known for his hobby of videotaping special events. He loved Christmas, and this year he’ll be home with the One who is Christmas. His number one achievement was accepting Jesus as his Savior at age 11 in Agana, Guam, and he would tell you all about it. Scott was a sower of the Word, loving, innocent, kind, forgiving, fun, loyal, thankful, hardworking and responsible. He was a credit to his family and a gift from God, and will be sorely missed. He’s not far away just close by through an open door. He was planning the ultimate trip for his 60th birthday, but had to change his plans making the most spectacular trip instead.

    I would like to express my condolences to the family of Mr. Forbes. When we lose someone close to us it can be difficult to cope with but with encouraging family and friends and the Bible we can make it. The Bible states at 2Cor. 1: 3,4 “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,  4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God”
    I hope these scriptures bring comfort to your family as well. Psalm 55:22, Job 14:13-15, and John 5:28,29
    This may not take away your grief completely but meditating on God’s promises found in the Bible can help you to find the hope and strength to keep going.
