Tragically, on May 20, 2020, Donald Lee Scott, Jr., "D.J.", passed unexpectedly. He was just 34.
Born the son of Nettie J. (nee Galentine) and Donald L. Sr (late), he would be a lifelong Baltimore City resident.
D.J. is a graduate of Lansdowne High School class of 2003 and continued his education earning a certification as a Barber from Woodlawn Tech, for which he was very proud.
He was well known and loved in the community and had many clients who came to him for their grooming. During his leisure time, D.J.enjoyed drawing and was a graffiti artist who painted as "Never." He liked riding dirt bikes and loved to eat. It was said that he liked his ketchup and Ranch dressing but more importantly, he added hot sauce to all of his food, making it, "spicy like him." He loved his mamas cooking but when he married he would rave about his wife's meals. Collecting shoes, especially "Jordans", was a pursuit he also enjoyed. His passion though, was found in his son, Nathan. D.J. never missed a basketball or football game; he was so proud of having a son. In the end, D.J. was said to "always be a kid at heart."
D.J. is survived by his dear wife, together for 13 years, Meghan Elizabeth Scott. He will be deeply missed by his loving son Nathan Michael Scott as well as his devoted mother Nettie J. and in-laws Herbert and Rebecca Betz. Donald leaves his beloved sister Kandi and spouse Ron Clunk, brothers Roger Galentine and Donta Freeman and devoted nieces and nephews, Karlyee, Raven and Shelbi Davis, Katelyn Churchwell, Amanda McClain, William Betz, Kaiden Corcoran, Arielle Cox, Lexi Betz, A.J. Stanley and Leila and Isabella Betz. He will be particularly cherished in the memories of his Goddaughters Taelynn Dennis, Raven Davis and Yani Freeman. He is reunited with his beloved grand parents, Virginia Scott and Cecelia and Harold Galentine. Finally his memory lives on in many loving aunts, uncles,brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, many cousins and more friends and acquaintances than can be enumerated.
The family asks that everyone who feels moved to leave messages to Donald and his family, may direct themselves to the "memory box," that will be stationed at the entrance of the funeral home.
In Lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to D.J.s wife Meghan, to help her through these very difficult times.
