Dooley was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and brother. He honorably served in the United States Navy in the Vietnam War, for twelve years. Dooley worked for the State of Louisiana DOTD for 30 years until his retirement and then went on to work for Wackenhut Security at the BCBS building in Baton Rouge.
Dooley loved music of any kind and he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He was a sports fan and cherished the times spent watching his children and grandchildren play sports. Dooley was known for his jokes and the way he kept everyone laughing. Above all, he was an amazing friend, who will be remembered by his special way of checking on people in their time of need. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He is survived by wife of 54 years, Patricia Thevenet Scott; sons, Charles "Chuck" Scott (Shantelle) and Joel A. Scott (Brandi); daughter, Stephanie Nicole Scott (Brian); grandchildren, Kylie Renee Scott (Britt), Luke Michael Scott (Claire), McKenzie Marie Scott (Eric), Gabrielle Marie Scott and Olivia Odille Scott; great-grandchild, Avery Grace Patin; sister, Brenda Taylor (Robert) and Tammy DeRoche (Norman); brother, Raymond John Scallan (Kathy); and numerous nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Walter Scott, Sr. and Florence Bullock Scott; sister, Sharlene Rae Johnson; and brother, Bobby Gene Scallan.
A burial at sea, with military honors, will take place at a later date, off of the coast of Norfolk, Virginia, per Dooley’s wishes.
