Sorry for everyone's loss. I first met Scott at Robin's donuts when he was delivering the baked goods. He always made me laugh. Him and Rosie was always a pleasure to see. I am going to miss you and your smile. My condolences to Rosie and all the family. Rest in peace my Dear friend 🙏🙏❤️

There are no words to express how saddened we are in your time of loss. I knew Scott best as my little brothers life-long friend but, any time we saw each other, we would chat to catch up. Sometimes for over an hour, if you knew Scott, you were his friend too. Scott’s awesome personality drew everyone in. He was kind, caring, thoughtful, (a bit sarcastic, with a quick wit - which I loved about him) but, most of all as someone who loved his family immensely. He will be greatly missed. Deepest condolences to Chuck, Penny, Rozie and their families, as they grieve the loss of an awesome soul.

I remember Scott as a very young man working at the old Tim Horton’s on Young St (not the current Tim’s). He was always smiling and friendly. Years later we reconnected at the former Robin’s Donut Shop, North St. (Fast forward.) Scott hadn’t changed much. He still showed a smile that would light any room but add his wife, Rosie and Braydon. We had both aged a bit because years had passed but this gentle man was the same wonderful young man I remembered.
RIP....you were loved by many and will be missed forever. You touched so many hearts.
