Thomas Scott Wriston “Scott”, age 53, of Mossy, WV, passed away at St. Mary’s Medical Center, in Huntington, WV, on New Year’s Day 2023, and gained his heavenly wings after battling a long illness. Born May 7th, 1969, to Thomas Webster Wriston and Norma Jean Wriston “Conley”. He was the eldest of two children.
Scott is preceded in death by his father Thomas Wriston, grandparents Cebert and Jewel Wriston, John and Mary Conley, uncles Charles Conley, Jimmy Wriston, and aunt Judy Ward (Wriston).
He is survived by his mother, Norma Wriston, brother Kevin Wriston wife Daniell, and their children Jonathan and Kynlea Wriston. His memory is further cherished by several uncles, aunts, and cousins. However, to many who knew Scott, they knew him as a brother and a true friend. The family would like to extend their love and gratitude to Ralph Rinehart and Family.
Those who were lucky enough to know Scott, knew him as an avid outdoorsman, who loved to hunt, fish, and ride the mountains and hollows where he grew up. Tragically Scott was paralyzed by an ATV accident when he was 17. This for most people would stop their pursuit of the finer things in life. No matter his ailment, he continued to enjoy his love of the outdoors. Scott truly had the gift of gab. His knowledge of the world was almost universally unmatched. Scott was raised to believe deeply in the Apostolic Faith, and always knew when to place matters into God’s hands. He was a welcomed ear in crisis and would always seem to have the right words to say. Everyone in some way shape or form is better for having known him.
