Condolences to Scotty McCreery on the passing of his paternal grandfather, James “Bill” McCreery II, last Sunday. The death was unexpected and came just two days after his 86th birthday.

Scotty says, “My Granddad was a hard worker who spent 20 years in the US Air Force Strategic Air Command and 10 more years working for the US Civil Service at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine. He lived life to the fullest, was good-natured and had a hearty laugh.”

Scotty’s grandfather was married to his grandmother, Paquita, for 57 years. They had three children and six grandchildren, of which Scotty is the only boy.

“As his only grandson, it will be an honor to carry on the family name, “Scotty says. ” Thank you Granddad, for everything, but especially the lessons on love and respect, the golf and diving lessons AND that McCreery deep voice.”
