Celebration Mourns Loss Of Association Member



                   



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, is mourning the loss of TWHNC Association member Scott McDonald.  McDonald, 63, and a resident of Shelbyville, died Thursday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center following a brief illness.  Services for Mr. McDonald will be 2 p.m. Sunday at Feldhaus Memorial Chapel in Shelbyville.  Visitation with the family will be 4-9 p.m. Saturday.

Mr. McDonald was a leader within the Shelbyville financial community and was a longtime employee of FirstBank, which previously flew the banners of First American and AmSouth.  McDonald was also a former board member of First National Bank of Shelbyville (now Regions).  Prior to his banking career, McDonald served as president of Fly Manufacturing Company in Shelbyville for several years and a short term as president of Fly’s parent company, Bayley Corporation of Denver, CO.

McDonald was born on September 6, 1944 in Fort Knox, KY before moving back to Middle Tennessee with his family.  He was a graduate of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Management.  He became a member of the TWHNC Association in 1991 and has remained very active with the Association and its activities.  Scott was the brother of TWHNC Vice Chairman, Charles McDonald.

“The Celebration meant a great deal to Scott and he meant a great deal to us,” said Celebration CEO Dr. Doyle Meadows.  “He could always be counted on to do whatever was asked of him throughout this community.  He was professional in everything he did, but most of all he was a devoted husband and loving father.  Our thoughts are with Charles and the entire McDonald family.  With Scott’s passing, we have lost a terrific person in our town.”
