John Scoular

October 12, 1939 - June 5, 2011


It is with great sadness that the family of John Wright Scoular announce his passing. Born in Glasgow Scotland12 Oct 1939, and died at home in Duncan, BC with family at his side, 5 June 2011. Predeceased by parents Robert and Robina Scoular, sister Jean Patterson. Faithful husband to Margaret (Armour) for nearly fifty years; father to Agnes (David), Robina (Allan) and John (Susan). Pappy to Blair, Meaghan, Alastair, Brittany, Katherine, Benjamin, Bryce, Iain, Brina and Brodie. Great-Grandfather to Logan, Bishop and Jack. Brother to Robert. Uncle, Friend, Mentor and Confidant to many.
John brought his wife and daughters to Canada in 1966, and after the birth of his son settled in London, Ontario where John succeeded as Processing Designer for Labatt Canada. As an active member of the Robert Burns Club, John promoted both Burns and the Scottish culture in London, and to his family. Member of St. John”s Lodge No. 209A A.F.& A.M.(London) and Cambuslang Royal Arch No. 114 (Scotland).

Always a generous man, who strongly believed in his convictions and the value of hard work, Pappy instilled his values in his children. A true patriarch to his family, he will be sadly missed.

Relation: UNCLE

When I think of Uncle John, I always remember a happy gentleman who made time for me (and everyone else) and always had an interesting story to tell. He was a man who knew something about everything! He always went out of his way for you and I was especially grateful given my mum and dad couldn’t, that he attended my wedding a couple of years ago which was a great honour. I also remember when he stayed with me following my mum’s passing during which he even taught me how to iron shirts! I just wish I could return some of the generosity he has shown me over the years especially during the various visits with Gran to Canada. A great man who will be missed dearly.


From: Doreen Robinson, and daughters Sondra, Jackie and Ann-Marie
Relation: Friends from Ontario

We have so many wonderful memories – especially of the many Burns suppers and “Cavalcade” back here in London, Ontario. We will always remember how dashing John looked dressed in his kilt. When remembering the many fun times, it seems so vivid, as if it was yesterday. Those wonderful memories bring smiles and laughter – we pray they do the same for you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love Doreen, Sondra, Jackie, and Ann-Marie

From: John Brunt
Relation: Fellow Labatt Employee

It was a shock to hear of Jock’s passing. He and I worked together for 21 years at Labatts and I always enjoyed working on a project with him. I’m sure he will be greatly missed by his family. Again, my sympathy.
P.S.- His obituary appeared in the London Free Press today, 14 June.
