Scottie Lewis Jefferies went to be with the Lord on August 23, 2013, in The Woodlands, Texas. Born to Bruce and Mamie Jefferies in Abilene, Texas on August 6, 1932, Scottie graduated from Corpus Christi High School in 1950 where he was a proud member of the State Championship Basketball Team his senior year. Thereafter, he attended Corpus Christi State University, Baylor University, and McMurry University in Abilene, where he played basketball, baseball, and ran track. He loved sports and was an accomplished athlete.

Scottie was drafted into the United States Army in 1953 and served his country honorably for two years. After his time in the military, Scottie taught school and coached girls' basketball in Talpa, Texas for one year. Scottie married the love of his life, Thelda Crow Jefferies, on July 19, 1957, in Baird, Texas. He then started his lifelong career in the oil and gas industry, working first for Continental EMSCO in South Texas. Scottie continued his career in the oil and gas business for almost six decades. At the time of his passing, he was a partner in Top Oil Field Products and Vice-President of YVC USA.

Scottie was always very committed to his church. Through the years, he was deeply involved in helping others to learn of and grow to know Christ. While in Corpus Christi, he was a member and Deacon of the Morgan Avenue Baptist Church and the Parkdale Baptist Church, where he volunteered his time with the Childrens' and Youth Choirs and Ministries. More recently, Scottie was a dedicated member of the First Baptist Church in The Woodlands, Texas where he had been actively involved with the Prison Ministry in Huntsville, Texas.
