Paul Edward Scott
It is with great sadness that the family of Paul Edward Scott announces his passing on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019, in a room filled with love and the presence of his family after an extended illness. Born on January 26, 1949, in Gagetown, he was the son of the late Esther Scott (Allen) and the late Hazen Scott.
Paul was a man of simple pleasures. He worked his whole career as a truck driver, first with Capital Dairy and then Perfection Dairy and Fresh Choice and loved driving and being on the road. He was a very quiet man and found the solitude of his career peaceful and relaxing right up to the last day that he worked. He loved getting out on the road again in his last years with his daughter Vanessa when she took him along for the drive as she traveled the province for work. Paul enjoyed retirement but missed driving every single day. He loved his Toronto sports teams, the Leafs and the Jays, and if prompted, could talk sports for hours.
Paul was a family man and his family was by far the greatest love of his life. Paul will be greatly missed by his wife of 33 years Patricia (Perry), children Melinda Scott, Krista Cairns (Brad), Peter Scott, Bradley Scott (Angela) and Vanessa Pugh (Bradley) Yes, there are a lot of Brads in the family; it was a favorite and ongoing joke with him - Hi, I am Paul, this is my son Brad, my son-in-law Brad and my other son-in-law Brad. Grampy/Bumpy will also be missed by his grandchildren Bella, Cameron, Austin, Avery, Amelia, Coen and Perrin and great grandchildren Scarlett and Dimitri; his sister Linda Howells (David Raven), Bill, Ernie (Marilyn), Jim (Pat) and Winfield.
In addition to his parents, Paul is predeceased by 2 infant sisters, Mary and Joan.
The family would like to thank his personal Support Workers at Bayshore (Lynn especially), the staff of 3SW for the stellar care given to him during his hospital stay, Dr. Cheryl Rushton and finally Dr. Anne Colpitts for the above and beyond service and care she gave him over the past several years...thank you is not enough to express how appreciative we are.
For those who wish, remembrances may be made the local SPCA, Diabetes Association, or a charity of your choice. Visitation will be held at Bishops Funeral Home on Friday, February 22 from 6-9pm.
