Scott Alligood


Scott William Alligood, 45, of Sylva, went home to be with the Lord, Wednesday morning, July 14, 2021.

Scott had been a resident of Jackson County for more than 25 years and touched a lot of lives and made a huge impact on so many people along the way. He was a charter member and an officer with the Jackson Rangers Camp 1917. He was a lifetime outdoorsman which is actually what brought him to Jackson County from Fayetteville. He was a Regional Team Leader at Budweiser of Sylva and before that had been a store manager at Food Lion. He was still a very active assistant Scout Master of Troop 914 in Jackson County. He loved spending time with his friends and family, and will be missed dearly by all that knew him.

He is survived by his mother and father, Howard and Kathleen Alligood; his wife of 24 years and high school sweetheart, Chrissy Alligood; his daughter, Emily Alligood of Sylva; his son, Scott Alligood Jr. of Sylva; his sisters, twin sister Kayla Dotson of Idaho and Hannah Alligood of Hickory, N.C.; his brother, Howard Forrest Alligood of Bailey, N.C.

He was preceded in death by his father-in-law and mother-in-law, James and Barbara; his grandmother, Carol Walker, and his uncle, Keith Walker; his grandmother and grandfather, Elenor and Charles Eich, and also by Carl Eich.

A memorial service was held at 4 p.m. Sunday, July 18, 2021, in the chapel of Appalachian Funeral Services.
