The flags were flying at half-mast at Dieppe Villa and Legion Branch 63 in honour of Will who passed away peacefully on November 3, 2019 at the age of 87 with his family by his side.
Will was born in Dublin, Ireland on October 25, 1932. Will served in the Royal Navy as an Able Seaman from 1947 to 1953 and emigrated to Canada via Newfoundland in 1954 and eventually landed in Saskatoon where he started a new life and raised a family.
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.
Tough times but such a strong and connected FAMILY the Scotts. I’m there with you all in so many ways. Robbie.
You will be missed
Love and prayers to your family
Rest in peace
From your irish family xxx
Our thoughts are with all of you at this very sad time
Well was a special guy who made me feel very lucky to have got to know him. He would have us hanging on every word when telling one of his many stories. There has been movies made already about much duller people.
He was a a real hero and proud to call him my uncle.
RIP Will. From Sean Teresa and Reece.
Jean, Kelly, Tim & Casey Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time. Wishing you feelings of comfort, and memories of joy during this difficult time. Celebrate the amazing life Will had. RIP Will, Love Alan, Jacky, Jade, Dylan & Bobbi Rose.
My deepest sympathy to all the family – love your Brother Robbie
(these condolences are being sent on behalf of someone else) Will Scott was the best driver Transit ever had on #3. He looked after his regular passengers and others with a joke and/or a smile. He is missed. signed “A Regular”
I worked with Will at Transit. He had a great sense of humour and maintained a curmudgeon persona with delight…something I have been accused of! Will was old enough to be my father but I found Will to be an interesting person and reminded me of family members that served in the 3 wars with his military background. Enjoy good memories of Will!
