A large motorcycle group was part of the funeral procession for Randolph "Randy" Scott as it traveled from Centenary United Methodist Church out Harrodsburg Rd. in Lexington, Ky., Monday, May 12, 2014. The well known motorcycle rider was killed Wednesday in a Laurel County traffic accident. From Scott's obituary, "He devoted much of his time to charities, such as God's Pantry, Burgers and Bikes, Quest Farm, Gallilean Home, ALS and Lupus as well as Wounded Warriors". The motorcyclists led the the procession from the funeral at Centenary United Methodist Church on Tates Creek Rd. in Lexington to the burial service at Blue Grass Memorial Gardens on Harrodsburg Rd. in Jessamine Co.

Lexington's Randolph Scott was passionate about people and about doing things to help them, and he was equally passionate about motorcycles, particularly Harley-Davidsons.
Scott, 71, who died May 7 when a car pulled into the path of his motorcycle in Laurel County, met lots of folks riding bikes, and about 150 of them rode their motorcycles to say goodbye Monday during Scott's funeral.
The riders followed the hearse from Centenary United Methodist Church, where the funeral was held, to Blue Grass Memorial Gardens, where Scott was buried.
Scott owned several Harleys, and his son-in-law, Robert Mullins, rode one of them in the funeral procession: an Ultra Classic Special Edition. Scott probably would have smiled at that.
