Spencer Scott Hollingsworth, Jr., age 74, a native of Amite, LA and a lifelong resident of Baton Rouge, LA passed away peacefully Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at his home surrounded by his family. Scott was the founder and president of Scott Hollingsworth Equipment Company, which has served the trucking industry for 42 years. He possessed a particular interest in the design and building of heavy industrial truck bodies. Scott's pride and joy was the restoration of the Bon Conge, a 1928 42-foot Elco flattop, which was once owned by Vice President under Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John Nance Garner. Scott enjoyed showing and competing in various wooden boat shows across the southeast.
Scott is survived by his wife of 53 years, Bonita Harris Hollingsworth, daughter Karen Hollingsworth Argrave and son-in-law Melvin Argrave, son Spencer S. Hollingsworth III and daughter-in-law Kelly T. Hollingsworth, three grandchildren Caroline Argrave, Spencer S. Hollingsworth, IV, and Melvin P. Argrave, IV, two brothers Joseph Phillip Hollingsworth and John Thomas Hollingworth, and sister Ann Hollingsworth Rozier.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Spencer S. Hollingsworth, Sr. and Pauline Cooper Hollingsworth, and sisters JoAnne Moore Cashio and Jane Hollingsworth Newmann.
