Ezra Scott Salter was born on December 2, 1980 to the proud parents of Jimmie and Virtys Salter in Shreveport, LA. He was the love of their lives and was affectionately known as “Scotty” to many family members and friends. In 1984, Ezra and his parents moved from Bakersfield, CA, to Va. Beach, VA where he was raised.
Ezra loved sports and was a very competitive team player. He participated in community soccer, baseball, football, loved bowling, swimming, movies and was even on the Green Run High School Wrestling team. After graduation he attended Tidewater Community College and shortly after, Ezra decided he was ready for the work force.
