Albert “Ab” Scott (age 95) with family at his side, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 24th, 2013 at Afton Park Place. He was the beloved father of sons John (Sheila) and George (Ann) and daughter Margaret. Dearly missed by grandchildren Sherri Atkinson (Mike) and Dave Scott (Karin) and great grandchildren Lauren and Jess Atkinson and Cameron and Darren Scott and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Henry and Margaret, his brothers Art, Ken, Edward, Elmer, Orvil, Jim and Jack and sisters Edna Matthews, Rose Hickson, Marjorie Richmond and Norma Randall.
Ab was born on December 14, 1917 in Sarnia, growing up in Wyoming. He worked for McKay and White’s in Wyoming and after serving overseas during WWII worked at Dow Chemical from 1951 until his retirement in 1979. He and Margaret McCreadie were married June 1, 1946 and lived for many years on Briarfield Avenue. They retired to Lakeview Haven in the Forest area in the mid 70’s and following Marg’s death in 2009, Ab moved into Afton Park Place.
Ab was a founding member of Dunlop United Church, serving on various committees including the Board of Trustees. He enjoyed growing vegetables in his garden and would proudly share the rewards of his hard work to friends and family. He was a member of the Legion and the Masonic Lodge. But at the centre of his life was his family. All that he did and loved to do was centred on them.
The family would like to express their appreciation to the “Chipmunks” at Afton for all the love and support that Albert received during his stay with them. A memorial service led by Rev. Deanna Gibson will be held on Friday, June 28, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at Dunlop United Church preceded by visitation from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to the charity of choice. Arrangements entrusted to SMITH FUNERAL HOME, 1576 London Line, Sarnia. smithfuneralhome.ca
