His in-laws Eric and Irene Hunter, Glenn Hunter, Murray (Tania) Hunter, Jim (Charlotte) Hunter, Marjorie (Monte) Heatcoat, and Brenda (Bob) Zdunich. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, cousins, his former students, colleagues and friends. Scott was born and educated in Saskatoon. He obtained his B.A (History) 73; B.Ed, 76; at the University of Saskatchewan and Masters in Education Psychology at the University of Regina in 2002. Scott began his teaching career at Goodwater High School (1976-78), Holdfast High (1978-80), Carievale (1980-88), and Carnduff until 1998. He was subsequently employed as Special Education Coordinator for Souris-Moose Mountain School Division until 2005 and South East Cornerstone School Division in 2006. Scott was one of the founders of the South East Early Childhood Intervention Program (SE-ECIP). He was very dedicated to his teachers and students. In May of 2004, Scott suffered a heart attack and stroke and after 22 days in a coma he awoke blind and paralyzed. Although the odds were against him, empowered by his well-known stubbornness and determination, he learned to walk again. With the assistance of Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), he mastered the computer programs specially designed for the blind. He was able to return to work part-time and was striving to achieve his full licensure with the Saskatchewan Association of Psychologists. His last challenge as an educator was helping a young blind boy to receive the necessary computer equipment and software programs required to enhance the boy's quality of life. Scott was a real sports and outdoor enthusiast. He had a passion for golfing and was a member of the Carnduff Golf Club. His passion became his hobby as he built golf clubs for himself and others. Throughout the years, Scott was also very involved with his children and their activities. We will miss deeply his strong presence, determination, and unwavering commitment to his family, his students, his colleagues, and his educational achievements. Funeral service will be held at the Carnduff Educational Complex 506 Anderson Avenue, Carnduff on Saturday, December 30, 2006 at 2 pm.
