Stewart Scott

January 7, 2022 - February 22, 2022

Tribute

Stewart Lawrence Scott was born on January 7, 1936, on his family farm in Argyle, Manitoba to Ivy and Lawrence Scott.  Stewart was a father, Grandpa, and a friend. He has peacefully moved on from this life on February 22, 2022. We are grateful for the warmth and kindness from the staff at the Cowichan District Hospital and Oyster Harbour, long term care facility where he lived out his final days.

Stewart was the youngest of three and last survivor to his sisters Aila and Louise.

Stewart served as a member of the RCMP for 28 years and reached his highest rank as Sargent. He was stationed across Western Canada, some of the places include Calgary, Trail, Grand Forks, Valemont, Prince George, Ucluelet and to the Okanagan (Summerland and Penticton). During his time in the Okanagan, he worked as a Paramedic in the Summerland Unit. After his retirement from the RCMP, he gained his Realtor’s License and helped families buy and sell homes for both Century 21 and Sutton Group Realty.

Stewart was a long-time member of the Legion in whatever community he lived for as far back as we can remember. He enjoyed his friends at the Shawnigan Malahat Legion- Branch 134 and was always proud to tell his family when he won at crib (or didn’t) or was successful in the meat draw.

Stewart enjoyed several hobbies. He enjoyed playing cribbage, gardening, running an orchard, woodworking, hunting, fishing, beachcombing and had a curiosity to explore. In his earlier days he was a good baseball player and passed that on to all three children. He enjoyed the game of curling, and the social nature it provided. He was the family photographer (evident by the lack of photographs of him) and he was often found packing a camera on his explorations and at events and gatherings of friends and/or family. Stewart loved dogs, he bred and raised multiple Springer Spaniels, and always enjoyed being around his family’s dogs later in life.

Stewart had three children with his first wife, Sandy: Cameron, David, and Shari. He is survived by his son, David and daughter, Shari her husband Kirk, and grandchildren Olivia and Eric. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and loved attending dance recitals and hockey games; watching his grandchildren grow and excel over the years. Cameron, his oldest son, passed away in 1990. Stewart never forgot Cameron, who always carried a very special place in his heart.  

Stewart was grateful for his friends and the community he lived in, always happy to help anyone that asked, and some that did not. He will be greatly missed. A celebration of Stewart’s life carries on each and every day, in the memories of fun stories, and his funny little sayings that will continue to make us laugh. Even though he was a man of few words, we fondly remember him saying, “We’ll see what happens” and “Thanks for dinner Kirk”. Rest in peace Dad/ Grandpa- we love you.
