Travis Scott Maxey, better known as Scotty, left Woodview Nursing Home in Ardmore on Thursday, Jan. 5, to take his place in Heaven with his mothers. Scotty was born in Ardmore to Mary Sue Maxey on Oct. 27, 1959. He lost his mother early in his life and was raised by his grandmother until her death that occurred when he was 15 years old. At that time, Scotty left Ardmore to join his foster family in Kingfisher, Okla. The Robison’s, Don, Margaret, Pam, and Donna welcomed him into their family. Scotty loved going on vacations with his family, playing video games and football, listening to the rock band KISS, driving the little tractor, helping Margaret in the garden, teasing his sisters unmercifully, and going fishing with Don. He even got to meet his football idol, Larry Csonka of the Miami Dolphins. After he graduated from Kingfisher High School, Scott got a job in the oilfield where he worked for a number of years. He then began a career working heavy machinery. He met and married Jennifer Ruth Baird of Ardmore, and together they had a daughter, Jessica Maxey. Scotty’s kind, tender heart, big grin, and playful teasing personality will never be forgotten by those who knew him.
Scott leaves behind his daughter, Jessica, her fiancé, Duston Shane Kent, and an expected granddaughter, Dusti Rose Kent; Jessica’s mother, Jennifer Baird; grandmother, Judy Ann Wilson; aunt, Fanna Lou Moore; spouse, Vanita Lynn Maxey and her son; foster family Don Robison, Pam Sampert, and Donna Mese and her husband, Jason; three nieces; one nephew; and lifelong friends Dewayne Henry Kinard, Perry Leslie Campbell, Danny Welch, Ken Feagans, and little Joe Pierce, as well as several close friends.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Sue; his grandmother; and his foster mother, Margaret Robison.
A memorial service will be 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12, at Craddock Memorial Chapel with Pastor Bruce Kirby officiating.
The family wishes to express appreciation to the caregivers of Woodview Nursing Home and Cross Timbers Hospice for their dedication and kindness.
