In the early hours of October 11th,2016 we lost the head of our family and loving father Gordon Scott. At the same time many of you lost an uncle, grandfather, great grandfather and a great friend. We will miss that twinkle in his eye and his mischievous smile. Love & Hugs Dad.
Gordon was the epitome of living a life to the fullest spending every minute he could outside or helping others. He was a quiet man who proudly fought for our country and volunteered countless hours to his local communities and friends.
Gordon was a hunter and gatherer, he loved to fish, hunt, garden & bake. Family and friends never went hungry with meals of fish; wild meat, mushrooms & berries; garden produce and homemade bread & pies. We enjoyed many a meal with Dad at the helm in the kitchen brewing up heavens knows what. He taught us so well, that it has become a passion to us all.
Dad taught by example and spent many loving hours teaching us kids and our kids how to forage & play keeping a few secrets to himself so as not to be outdone especially when it came to fishing and horseshoes. He taught us the value of hard work and how to work with our hands; he loved building birdhouses, gardening and tinkering, so proud of making something out of nothing.
Gordon is survived by his daughters Betty Jean (Robert) & Dawna Lee; son David; son-in-law Wayne; 11 grandchildren - Maggie, Martin (Lisa), Iris (Ken), Geoffrey (Amery), Carrie (Travis), Karen (Tony), Joni, Samantha (Jarret), Brayden, Tyane & Keynan; 18 great grandchildren – Kiara, Jacqueline, Carter, Kaylin, Sherease, Ashlyn, Elizabeth, Gracie, Aiden, Thomas, Fredrick, Ava, Scott, Zachary, Zoey, Korvyn & Kenna; numerous nieces and nephews.
Gordon lived a full life of 93 years and passed very peacefully in his sleep. He joins those dear to us that have gone before him, his loving wife of 62 years Janet; daughter, Mylss; son in law, Andy; grandson, Lee; brother, Ron & (Glady); sister, Joyce & (Hue)(Tommy)(Chris); sister-in-law, Eleanor & (Jim); parents, Mylss & Walter; parents-in-law, Jack & Betty.
A celebration of life party will be held in the near future, we are waiting for Gordon’s favorite season to have a party in his honor (summer 2017). Cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers please donate to your favorite charity in memory of Gordon Scott.
Dear Betty, Dawna and David,
We are so sorry to hear that Uncle Gordon has passed away. He was the last Uncle that I (Randy) had. We fondly remember him and quiet, gentle mannerisms. We are sending our love and thoughts to you in this time of loss.

Dear Betty,Bob, Dawna and all the rest of the Scott family,
I have so many wonderful memories of your Dad. All the Sunday afternoon visits and meals we shared will always be a favourite memory of mine and all the concerts our parents so patiently watched! Then your Dad became a hunting partner of the Krankowsky’s…… Albert had many fond memories of their hunting trips. My heart goes out to you all. May all your wonderful memories help you through this difficult time.

Dear Betty, Dawna, David, and all the Scott Family,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dad.
During the years Harry and I lived in Ashmont, Gordon and Janet and Harry and I spent so much wonderful time together: shooting wild ducks; playing “Five Hundred,” horseshoes, and badminton; sharing meals; square dancing; and so much more. I have very fond memories of those good times with good friends.
I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Gorden. I’ll always remember the time we went to Ashmont for our grandpa’s funeral..December ..I was 13 and a city girl..an outhouse was new to me..Uncle Gorden looked after us. He was so proud of his garden, it was not just for his family he and Auntie Janet shared with everyone. My mom and dad loved to be with them and so together they are again.
Love, hugs and many memories.
