BELLVILLE — Quiet and understated, Scott Tollison was hushed in many aspects of his life ... but his voice was heard loud and clear in his actions and his love for his family, friends and community. An exemplary husband and father, Scott was completely devoted to his family. Beyond his family, he would offer anything he had to help a friend in need.
Scott passed away Saturday evening, Sept. 21, 2013, from injuries sustained in an accident. He was 42.
He was born July 14, 1971, in Mount Vernon to Donald E. and Martha “Marty” (Easterday) Tollison. A 1990 graduate of Clear Fork High School, Scott excelled in athletics, especially football. A hard worker and provider, Scott was employed the last seven years at the Richland County Highway Department Bellville Outpost.
He is survived by his loving wife, Paula of Bellville, whom he married Oct. 3, 1999; two adoring sons, Hunter and Wyatt Tollison; his parents, Donald and Marty Tollison of Bellville; sister, Teresa Bennett of Perrysburg; father-in-law, James Yarger of Butler; sister-in-law, Patty Hatfield of Lexington; his wife’s grandmother, Betty Oswalt of Butler; many nieces, nephews and extended family members.
Scott was preceded in death by a son, Garrett Tollison; and his mother-in-law, Linda Yarger.
