John Scott Blevins

John Scott Blevins, of Olive Branch, MS, known as Scotty to those fortunate enough to be part of his heart, passed away from a brain tumor on March 30, 2019, with his mom, dad, and wife by his side in Olive Branch, Mississippi. He attended Truckee High School and UTI Technical Institute.

He leaves behind his wife Gayle Blevins and her two sons Joe and Josh, parents John and Linda Blevins, brother Rich Brown, sisters-in-law Mistie, nephew Austin, and niece, Ashley.

In lieu of flowers, Scotty would want you to drop items off in one of the Karma Boxes found in Reno, to help those in need.
