DENNIS BRUCE SCOTT
1938 – 2020
Dennis passed away peacefully at his home with his wife of 62 years, Carol, at his side on Monday, April 6, 2020 at the age of 81.
Dennis was born in Victoria, BC on November 12, 1938 to Tom and Edith Scott. After graduating high school, Dennis began a long career in the grocery business, first with Safeway in Victoria and later at the Red & White and Thrifty Foods on Salt Spring Island where he took great pride in providing excellent service to customers, particularly in the produce department.
Dennis, Carol and their two children, Michael and Julie, moved to Salt Spring Island in 1974. Dennis loved fishing, hunting, gardening and spending time with his family and many friends. Dennis had a great sense of humour and enjoyed reminiscing about the many escapades of the good old days.
Dennis will be dearly missed by his beloved wife, Carol, son, Mike (Marie), daughter, Julie (Robert), two grandsons, Robby and Dennis, sister, Kathleen, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends.
Our appreciation and thanks to Dr. Reznick and Jean, Dr. McGhie, and the homecare support team who provided care and comfort in his final months.
In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date when family and friends can come together to celebrate this great man.
