June 9, 1928 - October 28, 2020
John Bradford Scarbrough, 92, of Laurel, passed away on October 28, 2020, at his home. He served in the US Navy, and finished his military career, and retired from the US Coast Guard. “Brad,” as everyone knew him, never met a stranger, and would help anyone who was ever in need, at any time. He loved and cherished his family, friends, and church family. The highlight of his day, before he got sick, would be gathering at Wards Pharmacy in Ellisville, with his “coffee drinking buddies,” as he would call them, and telling old war stories. He also loved helping out at his church with whatever needed to be done. He was loved and cherished by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him, and will be missed tremendously. The family would like to thank Comfort Care Hospice, and everyone who visited during his brief illness. He was preceded in death by his wife, Freida Patrick Scarbrough; father, Arnie A. Scarbrough; mother, Ruth Griggs Scarbrough; brothers, Don Scarbrough and Raymond Lee Scarbrough; and sister, Linda Ruth Scarbrough Gambill. Survivors include son, Warren ( Denise) Scarbrough of Maine; son, Charles Shields III of Fort Worth, Texas; daughter, Janet Leigh Hosey of Laurel; brother, Robert A. Scarbrough; three grandsons, Jacob Scarbrough of Maine, Tyler Boyette of Laurel, and Jeremy Boyette of Fort Worth, Texas; three granddaughters, Annarose Scarbrough of Maine, Alexandra Scarbrough of Maine and Taylor Boyette of Laurel; two great-granddaughters, Rylee Grace Clark and Trynity Boyette; one great-grandson, Brandon Boyette; nieces; nephews; and cousins. Visitation will be Monday, November 2, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. and funeral at 2:00 p.m. at the Laurel Seventh Day Adventist Church. Burial will follow at Sunset Gardens Cemetery in Laurel.
