Paul W. "Scottie" Scott, a retired Maryland Transit Administration bus driver who was an ardent collector of Motown music and artifacts that earned him the sobriquet of "Mr. Motown," died Friday of bladder cancer at Good Samaritan Hospital. He was 78. Born to working-class parents in Baltimore, Paul Wesley Scott was raised in East Baltimore, where he graduated in 1953 from Dunbar High School. He joined the Navy in the mid-1950s, serving as a steward. "During his brief leaves, he loved to party to the sounds of Etta James, Ray Charles, Clyde McPhatter, Sam Cooke, the Coasters, Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Elvis, Chuck Berry, Billie Holiday, the Temptations, and the list goes on and on," said Sherrell Claiborne, a granddaughter, who lives in Owings Mills.

When it ended, Shatus reflected on a day that started with a death in the family and ended with an organized talk about the end of life and the meaning of it all. "It's just strange," said Shatus, of south Baltimore, whose mother, Rose, died of natural causes in hospice care at age 96. "It's kind of reassuring in a way. No one wants to talk about (death)
