Scott1Suddenly on Friday August 30, 2013, as the result of an accident, Scott Gordon Patterson of R.R. 3 Newbury in his 53rd year.  Beloved husband of 28 years of Lenore (McColl).  Scott was a proud and loving father of his 5 daughters, Krista (Gary Simpson), Emily (Jeremy Featherstone), Hilary in Heaven, Megan (Justin Staels) and Kelly.  Dear son of Evelyn Patterson and the late Ross (2005) and treasured brother of Jane (Dave) Berdan and Ann (Bill) Stalker.  Fondly remembered by his mother-in-law Gertrude McColl and the late D. Sam (1989) and family, as well as his aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.  Scott was a born farmer; he became the next generation to care for the land and truly loved his farming life.  As well, he devoted more than 30 years to trucking sweet corn, making many life-long friends “in the corn patch”.  He owned and operated a snowplow truck for the MTO for over 25 years, clearing the way for travellers on the 401.  He was a faithful elder at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, Wardsville.  Scott visited many ballparks in Southwestern Ontario, through his own days of playing baseball and then watching his daughters.  He was passionate about all of his activities – but most of all he loved all his girls. His competitive nature, sense of humor and hard work ethic will remain in the hearts of his family, as they cherish his memory.  They were truly blessed to have him in their life.  Relatives and friends will be received at the Van Heck Funeral Home, 172 Symes St., Glencoe on Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.   Funeral service to celebrate Scott’s life will be held on Wednesday, September 4 at 1:00 p.m. at the Glencoe Presbyterian Church.  Interment to follow at the McLean Cemetery, Clachan.  Memorial donations may be made to the St. John’s Presbyterian Church, Wardsville (building fund) or to a Memorial Agricultural Award at GDHS (cheques payable to “Lenore Patterson in Trust”).
