David "Scott" Brasington

David Brasington

David “Scott” Brasington passed away peacefully in his sleep on August 10, 2020 at the age of 64. Born and raised in North Syracuse New York, Scott graduated from Cicero High School and the State University of New York (SUNY) Harpur College in Binghamton, NY.

Scott met his lifelong partner, Leanne Nelson Brasington, in the summer of 1978. They married the next year and moved to Cincinnati, OH, before landing in St. Louis, MO.

In 1986 Scott and Leanne moved from St. Louis to Clear Lake, TX with their two young daughters, Crystal and Amber. They were soon joined by a third daughter, Mandie. Scott graduated from South Texas College of Law in 1997. In 2002 Scott moved to Dickinson TX where he enjoyed the last 18 years of his life.

Throughout his life, Scott served his community, church, and the Lord faithfully. He served in Junior Church at Bay Area Christian Church (BACC) for 29 years, touching countless lives and embodying Christian love and values for the young children he taught. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, friend, and avid golfer. He will be missed dearly, but if Scott could talk to us now he’d tell us that he’s “doing pretty good for an ugly old man.”

Scott is preceded in death by his parents, Virgil Clinton Brasington and Arlene Malone Brasington, and his favorite dog Beethoven.

Scott is survived by his wife: Leanne Nelson Brasington and three daughters and their partners:  Crystal and Jonathon McGee, Amber and Russ Tucker, and Mandie Brasington and Alexis Cooke; two siblings: Mark Brasington and Sharon Walker; grandchildren: Sky Herrington, Payton Thomas, Aden McGee, Ainsley McGee, Courtney Tucker, Kylie Tucker, Matthew Tucker; and three great-grandchildren: Rylie, Everett, and Whitlee.

Calling will be from 10 to 11 AM and service from 11 AM to Noon at Carnes Funeral Home at 3100 Gulf Fwy, Texas City, TX 77591 on Saturday, August 15, 2020.
