Scott Nelson McIvor

July 7, 1935September 3, 2019

On Tuesday, September 3rd, we said goodbye to our beloved Scott McIvor. Cherished husband of 62 years to Judy, father to Karen (Goreas), Catherine (Knight), Shannon (Dressel) and Rod McIvor. Scott was also blessed with 7 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

He was a man of many achievements. One of the finest was his amazing ability to form friendships and devote his time to community service in all of the places he has lived over his lifetime. He was a man of multiple passions and talents: boating, music, hockey, art, anything with an engine, outdoors, family, business, books, creativity, and humour. He was a marvelous story and joke-teller, CIBC manager for 25 years, 9 years as a Councillor for District of North Cowichan, master of many ceremonies, and kilt-wearer! To quote his niece Jill, "Uncle Scott was a legend, a McIvor and a half! He had bottomless hospitality, insurmountable party spirit, and contagious energy."

He was the cornerstone of our clan, and we will miss him like crazy.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Heritage Hall - Cowichan Community Centre, 2687 James Street, Duncan, BC, on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 3pm - 5pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Rotary Club of Duncan.

We are so saddened to hear of Scott's passing. We have known Scott and Judith for nearly 30 years. I used to take piano lessons from Judith and got to know Scott at that time and remember him playing his bass at some recitals. I also knew Scott through Rotary. He was very committed to the community in many ways and was an excellent artist.
Our deepest condolences to Judith and family.

I was quite shocked about learning of Scott's passing. I belong to the Crofton Art Group and for years I have been opening up the Senior centre and Scott has been patiently waiting for me. He was a gentle man and very helpful for me with all my gear in tow. He had a wonderful sense of humour and he was a wonderful painter. Lot's of projects for the grandkids too. I will miss him very much.
My condolences go out to Judith and family x

Rotary won't be quite the same without Scott. To me, he was Mr. Rotary - always there to help out, participate and have fun. Whether it was organizing our car rally or Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, or volunteering at almost every event, he could always be depended upon. It was always such a pleasure to spend time with Scott and Judith. He will be missed.

My dear Judy I am so saddened to read this morning about the passing of your husband Scott. You and he have been such a motivating and inspirational couple in the many many years that I have known you both. Scott was such a huge part of my little Sam's journey and growth into the travelling adventures she leads today. It was his mentioning of the Rotary Short Term exchange program that allowed Samantha to make her first solo journey to Sicily and to introduce us to my Rotary adopted son Andrea and his family (we are still in touch to this day). Your positive and calming presence as well as his joy and enthusiasm was always a delight when you popped in to Copycat's.
Please know that you are in our thoughts and hearts as you journey through this tragic time. If there is anything that I (or Mark) can do to lessen your burden and assist you (or your family with) please know that I am just a call (or email) away. Much love to you (and your family), Elizabeth, Mark and Samantha

Our sincere condolences upon the loss of dear Scott, a true spark in any chance meeting, in any gathering, always thinking of others, phone calls to sing “Happy Birthday”, playing his base while Judith tickled the ivories for many appreciative audiences, organizing lonely musical instruments to be shipped off to students in Latin America, was it Honduras? Painting for others, always planning the next event particularly the Hagas!, sharing prawns, sending a card to my husband depicting his broken ankle last winter...just so full of life, love, mischievousness and care! How lucky we all were that we had those special moments with such a special and unique character. My admiration and appreciation.

Thank you Scott for your friendship and thank you to Judith and family for sharing your Scott with us, Love Carol Hartwig and Ray Demarchi

It seems like such a short time I have known Scott, his kind way and his willingness to help, whenever he could, will be missed and always remembered at every art meeting.

"Fair Winds, and a following Sea" Skipper.... You taught me how to sail and race, (and how to make a proper Martini whilst at sea!). Your contributions and positive influence to the Community, Friends and your Family will be sorely missed.

For Scot's loved ones,

I'm a member of the Crofton Art Group. I was just getting to know Scot and am sad that I won't get to know him better. I recall him at his table, painting beautiful scenes and sharing a funny thought to make us smile. May you know that you are in my thoughts at this difficult time.
