Scott Lawrence Chandler 1984 - 2015 Scott passed away on August 30, 2015 after a long illness. Beloved son of Elizabeth and Lawrence and sister of Petra (Kris). He will be missed by his niece and nephew, Oma and Opa, many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. An early interest in art for Scott became a professional passion for photography and technology. Scott earned a BFA at OCAD where he received several awards and was subsequently recognized as among the top emerging photographers in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. He attained an MFA at Concordia University in Montreal, which became his new home. Scott did several freelance assignments for a national newspaper and recently exhibited Fordlândia at Centre d’Art Contemporani in Barcelona and Galerie Les Territoires in Montréal. He earned the respect, friendship and admiration of many, while retaining his independent nature throughout. The family would like to thank the nurses, doctors and staff at St. Mary’s hospital in Montreal, the Southlake Cancer Centre in Newmarket, and also St. Elizabeth Southwest CCAC for their compassionate care. A celebration of Scott’s life will be held in Aurora, in the near future.

Scott's talent was inspirational and his kind support invaluable, his generosity means that his spirit will live on, not only in his own work but in the work of those he encouraged. I have great admiration for his courage, his good humour remaining even in the past few months. He'll be greatly missed. My condolences and best wishes to Scott's family and friends.

I came to know Scott as my MFA thesis student at Concordia University, and grew to admire him as a great friend over the years. Scott was a very kind and generous person, sharing his knowledge, good humour and compassion with all who surrounded him. From him, I learned what it means to be truly selfless. I will dearly miss him but know he will live on through his work and through those who admire him.
