James Scott Alexander of Provencal, known to family and friends as Scott, known at work as James, and to everyone else as "Alabama". He left us unexpectedly on April 27, 2021, and completely ruined his sister in law's birthday. To anyone that knows him, you know he got a kick out of that. He was born on December 29, 1974 in Birmingham, AL to Philip Ray Alexander and the late Alta Faye Alexander. He is survived by his wife of 17 years, Lisa Scarbrough Alexander, his father Philip Ray Alexander, a brother Philip Paul Alexander, and his wife Shelli. His two sister-in-laws, Rebecca Carbin (Steven), and Bailey Tarver (Christian), and his mother-in-law, Judy Davis. Scott was the funny guy in the room. Sarcastic, rude, and you know if he insulted you, that he did indeed like you. A lifelong Alabama Crimson Tide and L.A. Raiders fan, he enjoyed poking fun at LSU and Dallas Cowboys fans. He was so full of life and laughter, and enjoyed talking trash with his uncle, JR Davis. Health issues plagued him the last few years of his life, but he was a hard worker and had a tremendous support group at Weyerhaeuser in Natchitoches. His wife would like to personally thank every single person that visited, called, and gave him joy. I know that he gave his coworkers grief, but he only teased the ones he cared about. If Scott left anything behind in this world, it was his love and humor. He loved his wife, he loved his family, and had a special place in his heart for his two nieces, Lily Carbin and Shelbi Mitchell. He deserved a better ending, but he will never not be loved, and never forgotten. At his request, he did not want a funeral, and to quote his favorite movie Tombstone, "Well...bye".
