“Scotty” was born Thursday, October 19, 1961, in Atlanta, Georgia, to Lowell and Nancy Belk. He attended school at First Presbyterian Day School and then college at Georgia Southern University. After this, he received a master’s degree in Public Administration from Georgia College and State University. He raised one son, Justin Belk, whom he adored. Scotty dedicated his career to public service, first as an officer with the Macon Police Department, then 19 years as a parole officer with the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Parole, where he ultimately served as Chief, and finally as a specialist with the state Department of Labor, where he retired in 2019. Highlights of his career included working security at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and the 2004 G8 Summit at St. Simons Island, where he met President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. He had a passion for all things coastal, and he particularly loved deep-sea fishing.
Scotty is survived by his son, Justin Belk, MD (Taylor Belk, DVM); his parents, Lowell and Nancy Belk; brother, Chris Belk (Kristine); nieces, Marli Belk and Kyndall Belk; great nephew, Fischer Jones.
