John (Jack) William Scott (Sixy)

Feb. 10, 1926 – May 22, 2014

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a husband, father, grandpa, great grandpa, uncle and friend.

Jack passed peacefully in his 88th year surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife Dorothy (Dot) of 66 years, also by his sons, Bill (Kathy) of Powell River, Keith (Sandy), Jack (Carrie), Duncan (Vivien), and his daughter Sherrie, all of Nanaimo. He will be fondly remembered by 12 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many friends.

Jack was born in Nanaimo and was a true Native Son. Except for a tour of duty in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War II, he spent his entire life in Nanaimo.

He was a life-long contributor and participant in sports. Jack spent 26 years of service as a member of the Harewood Volunteer Fire Department. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping. Jack worked for BC Hydro and retired in 1984 after 37 years of service.

“Happy hunting and good fishing, Dad.”

The family wishes to thank Dr. Cancade and the staff at Nanaimo Travellers Lodge for their thoughtfulness and tender care in his last few months.

There will be a celebration of life at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 256, 1630 East Wellington Road, Nanaimo on Sunday, June 8, 2014 from 1 to 3:30 pm.

In lieu of flowers please give generously to the Nanaimo Travellers Lodge in memory of Jack Scott (Nelson Wing).
