Leslie Scott Marchand passed away in the early hours Monday, November 6, 2023. Born October 19, 1954 to Leslie Warner Marchand and Norma Jean Langston in Newport, Arkansas. He moved to Memphis, Tennessee and later Jackson, Tennessee. Scott started his floral career as a delivery driver and worked his way up to become a much sought after designer and co-owner of Flowers Unique by Marchand in Alexandria, Virginia. After retiring and moving to Charleston in 2015, he could not stay retired and began working at Tigerlily as a wedding consultant and designer.
He is preceded in death by his Mother Norma, Father Warner, stepfather Jack Walton Warren, as well as numerous Aunts, Uncles, and cousins.
Scott is survived by his wife of 40 years, Alice Louise, a daughter Anna Christine Taylor (husband Tim), son, Jonathan Scott (wife Meg Marchand), grandsons, Howie Scott Marchand, and Owen Hayes Taylor, sisters Rebecca Marchand and Beth Turnage (husband Bryce Turnage) and nieces Elizabeth Walton, Catherine Grace, and Rebecca Lane Turnage.
He fiercely loved his family and all the many friends that became his family. Known by many as “Uncle Scott” there is nothing he wouldn’t do for those he brought into his circle. Somehow, wherever he went he would run into someone he had a connection to. And if he didn’t then he would become best friends with the people he met. Scott had the uncanny ability to make those he just met comfortable and they would open up to him about any and everything. World famous for his Sunday Bloody Mary Saluté, our Sundays will never be the same without his weekly photos.
