MATTHEWS, Ga. - William Norwood Prescott, 74, loving husband of the late Barbara Ann Stewart Prescott, entered into rest Tuesday afternoon, January 20, 2015 at his residence. Funeral services will be held at 1:00PM Saturday, January 24, 2015 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Larry Davison and Rev. Ed Chance officiating. Interment will follow in the Mt. Moriah Cemetery. One of eight children born to the late Amie Lou Johnson Prescott and the late William Lee Prescott, Norwood was a lifelong resident of Matthews and was a member of Mt. Moriah UMC. He retired after working at Barrow & Prescott for 25 years, at Plant Vogtle for 5 years, and making deliveries for Buck Jones Nursery. He also farmed and raised cows, goats and quail and was well-known for his vegetable garden and his old John Deere tractor collection. Being very humorous and quick witted, Norwood loved laughter and living life to its fullest. He was a man of integrity who honored his word and always did the right thing.
