SCOTT, Edward Raymond
January 23, 1948 – March 08, 2017
It is with great sadness and with heavy hearts our
family announces the sudden passing of Ed at the
age of 69.
Ed was born in Calgary, Alberta to his loving
parents Phillip and Edna Scott. He grew up in
Exshaw, Alberta and in the Bow Valley where
he developed his love for the outdoors. He was
known for his love of fishing, on shore or in the
boat. He was an avid camper and would camp
in any weather. He loved to tie his own flies with
each new area that he fished in. He enjoyed planning
his off-road camping trips and exploring new territory
along the way. His tag line was "Always Going Home", on the back of his
campervan. Ed had a great sense of humor, a great story teller and enjoyed
his time at the coffee shop with the "boys".
Ed worked for Lafarge Canada Inc. until he retired in 1998. He was a proud
member of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers Local 146.
Ed received his pin in 2016 for 45 years of service.
Beloved husband of Sharon, his wife of 44 years, Ed was predeceased by
his father Phillip in the late 1960's and his mother Edna in 1993. He will
be mourned and missed by his loving daughter Angela (Ed) Campbell and
grandchildren, Ryan, Chloe, and Dylan (Oro-Medonte, Ontario) and his loving
son Darcy (Calgary, AB). Ed is also survived by his sister-in-law
Linda Caldwell (Red Deer, AB), Sue Foubert (Salmon Arm, B.C) and
brother-in-law Garry (Wendy) Foubert (Ruthven, Ontario), and numerous
nieces and nephews. Ed's faithful companion, Sammy, who never left his
side and sidekick Rosie, they will always be looking for the front door to
open again.
A Celebration of Ed's Life is being planned for close friends and family. It will
be held at Ed and Sharon's home on Saturday March 18, 2017 from 1pm-
4pm.
