Will was predeceased by his son Rory in 1993, his parents and two brothers in Ireland. He is survived by; his loving wife, Jean, to whom he was married for 61 years; his brother, Robbie Scott in Wicklow, Ireland; and many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by; his children, daughter Kelly, sons Tim (Karen) and Casey; and his grandchildren, Kristen, Keegan, Erin and Liam.
Will had several different careers in Saskatoon including the U of S, SaskPower, Canada Post and retired from the Saskatoon Transit System in the early 1990s. Will was also a 60 year member of the Legion, Branch #63.
The family would like to say a special thank you to the nurses and care aides and all of Will’s “second” family at the Sherbrooke Community Centre for taking such great care of him for the last three years.
