Kenneth “Scott” Hale, 58, went to be with the Lord on Monday, February 8, 2021. He was born on December 8, 1962, in Bay City, Texas to Kenneth Charles Hale and Shirley Ann Jannise Hale. Scott married his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Tammy Lavon Hairston Hale on January 24, 1987. They spent 34 years together walking by each other’s side navigating through life. Before the passing of his late son, Jonathan, he owned and operated Hale & Son Welding Service in Anahuac.
He was a great cook and was able to put any variety of ingredients together. Crawfish/Snowcrab Boils and grilling steaks were some of his specialties. He was a wonderful fisherman and could outfish you on any given day. Scott was full of love and always willing to help those who would help themselves. He had a true heart of gold that was the size of Texas. Scott will be remembered as a kind, caring and giving man by all who knew him.
