    William "Billy" Jr. Scott 50, died peacefully on Sunday Aprill22,2012

    He was a loving father, brother, and son. He was loved by many and will always
    be remembered for his kind and loving soul.

    He is survived by his son Austin Scott, His parents,Rose and Big Bill Scott,siblings,Cheryl,Tom ( Heather) nephews,and many friends and customers.

    He was the owner of Scotts Jr Interiors of Louisville Ky. He started working on cars as soon as his daddy would let him make buttons,and he and his father had over 200 interiors featured in various magazines, including his 1940 Ford pickup in the Feb 2003 StreetRodder.

    Personally,he had helped me on more projects than I can count ranging from boats, bikes, planes, limos,trucks, pedalcars, and many hotrods.

    He was my brother and my friend.

    A memorial for Billy Scott Jr. will be announced and held at a later date.

    I am sorry to hear of Billy's passing.

    Prayers for you.
     
  4. That's very sad to hear. I was born and raised in Louisville, and Billy was a legend in his craft. We're about the same age, and I used to see him all the time cruising Iroquois Park back back in the day in his chopped Maverick. Bob Taylor had lettered "Billy the Kid" right above the drip moulding on the driver's side roof.

    Prayers sent for his family and friends.....RIP "Kid".

    Rest in peace Billy.

    Sorry for your loss. Lost my brother 12 years ago and I think about him all the time. Every brother is a legend in his own family. Sounds like Billy was a legend to all of Louisville. Prayers for you and your family.
     
  16. The Scotts have done some really nice work over the years. I met them at the Casper show in 1986 when I toured a car on the circut. Bill Sr had been doing interiors for a short time back then. Both very nice guys.

    I have known the family for almost 50 years and consider them some of my best friends. I had the privilege of working with Little Bill for 7 years and we had some great times at the shop. I watched Austin grow up there and Bill did on great job of raising him. He has grown up to be a fine young man.

    A memorial will be held for Little Bill on Sunday June 24th. It will be at the old Paradise country Club on Terry lane just south of Greenwood rd. It will be from noon until 4pm. Drive you rods, customs, or bikes to show respect to a great young man.

    I loved you Bill, you were like a son to me.

    Randy, the wood man.
