Kenneth Harrison Scott went home to be with the Lord on May 1, 2018 in Victoria, B.C. at the age of 81. Ken is survived by his wife Andrée, stepsons Martin, Colin, Jerome and Robert Godbout and stepdaughter, Lise Godbout.

Born in Derby, England to Leonard and Catherine Scott in 1937, Ken emigrated to Canada in 1953. At age 19 he joined the Canadian Navy and trained as an Engineer, achieving the rank of Lieutenant-Commander. In 1974 Ken married Andrée Godbout in Victoria before being posted to Halifax, then Ottawa. Upon retirement Ken and Andrée built a sailboat and sailed from Ottawa to the Caribbean, through the Panama Canal and back to Victoria. The couple also traveled the canal systems of England in narrowboats. Ken wrote a book on boatbuilding called "Metal Boats: A Practical Guide".

Ken played the saxophone in the Sidney Concert Band, the Monterey Centre Concert Band and in a Jazz band called Groovin' Hard. Ken was also an avid square dancer in a group called The Promenaders.

Ken and Andrée frequently hosted social events for their many friends and community groups, such as the Central America Support Committee, at their grand home in Oak Bay. A Celebration of Life gathering was held for Ken in the home.

All who knew Ken feel the loss of one who gave us many happy memories and was an example of generous community service. Donations to the Victoria Hospice may be made at victoriahospice.org.
