Scott Tyson Boiles

November 15, 1957 — October 3, 2023

In Loving Memory of Scott Tyson Boiles, 65 of Wirtz, VA who passed away October 3, 2023 after an enduring and valiant battle with several major health issues. Throughout his life, he exhibited a spirit that never wavered and a love for life. He was born in Orlando, FL November 15, 191957,57 to Jane Boiles and the late Billy Boiles.

Scott lived in the Northern VA area where he graduated from Marshall HS (1976) and went on to get his BS in Marketing from Virginia Tech (1980). After a few different jobs he found his calling at Northwest Federal Credit Union in 1994 as a Teller working his way up to Vice President of Finance, retiring in 2015. In 2017, Scott and his wife, of 39 years, embarked on a new chapter when they moved to the peaceful embrace of Smith Mountain Lake. Here he found immense joy and love for “lake life” living and beautiful sunsets on the water.

Scott’s love for life stemmed from his passions in sports, music, cooking, traveling, and breweries. He loved playing basketball, softball, and pickleball as well as RV tailgating at VT Football games and attending GMU basketball games for over 30 years. Scott was an avid guitarist and an audiophile who reveled in being the DJ at his own grand parties as well as for weddings and office parties. He was known to whip up culinary delights be it grilling and smoking up meats or cooking up spicy dishes. Not one to sit still, Scott was either building something or traveling cross country on his motorcycle, cruising the Virgin Islands, parachuting out of an airplane in Australia, drinking beers in Germany, or enjoying many relaxing RV road trips be it to beaches, concerts, visiting friends, or road games.

Of all the things he saw and did, what he cherished most was doing things for and spending time with family, friends and his beloved Rottweiler’s, creating memories that last forever. Scott lived “his life like a song”, just like an avid Parrothead would. His circle of friends remained deep and strong throughout the years. His memory will live on in the hearts of all those who had the privilege of knowing him, leaving an indelible mark of love, joy, and friendship.

Scott is survived by his mom, Jane Boiles of Annapolis, MD; Wife Wendy Boiles of Wirtz, VA; Sister Kathy (Dwight) Moxness of Annapolis, MD; and a host of loving cousins, in-laws, god-children, and long-time friends.
