Luther wrote his own obituary before his passing on February 28, 2021, it is below. Born on a small farm in Sevier County, TN on March 4, 1929, I was the first child of George Alfred Scarlett and Lola Mae Loveday Scarlett, later siblings included Etta Beatrice Scarlett Lowe, Shirley Jeane Scarlett Myers, William David Scarlett and Ida Marvene (Penny) Scarlett.
I attended Sevier Public Schools throughout my education. High School was a wonderful time for me. I met so many great people that would become friends for a lifetime. My greatest high school memories were playing in the marching band as the drum major and leading the band down the field and at many community events. Yearbook editor and being voted “Most Popular” are other fond memories.
