"Our memories build a special bridge and bring us peace of mind"

“Our memories build a special bridge and bring us peace of mind”

Scott passed peacefully away at Leighton, aged 93 years. The beloved husband of Yvonne,much loved dad to David and his wife Audrey, Caroline and her husband Jonty. Also a cherished grandad to Vicky, Daniel and Charlotte, who will be so sadly missed and fondly remembered by all his family and friends. Donations, if desired, will be gratefully received in memory of Scott for Cancer Research Crewe and Nantwich. Scott’s funeral will take place on Thursday 23rd November at 12 noon in St Chad’s Church, Wybunbury, followed by burial in the churchyard.

Scott was brought up in a good family environment. His family had a deep faith. His father Ralph was a church warden and supported the community providing work and good values that were passed onto Scott, who himself became a church warden. Scott worked for his father in his transport business as a young man, before joining the Army from 1939 – 1945. After that time he went back to the family business. Yvonne, his wife and his children David and Caroline described Scott as a kind, caring, fun loving, brave family man, whose thoughtfulness and generous nature will be so sadly missed by not only them but by so many of his friends.

Yvonne, Scott and the family did so much together, from holidays in Cornwall, all parts of Wales and his beloved Portugal. He loved his garden and the outdoors. This made him a natural golf player, a game he loved and played whenever he could. By all accounts he had a good handicap (but that may be one of those golfing stories) He loved a good joke. It’s impossible to share a life like Scott’s in the few words we have on this page but his last and first words would surely be the love of his wife Yvonne, children David and Caroline and the immense joy and pride he had in his grandchildren, Victoria, Daniel and Charlotte.

    So sorry to hear the sad news. Scott put so much effort into his garden and cutting the grass for the coffee mornings that he and Yvonne held each year in aid of Cancer Research which raised a lot of money over the years.
    Thinking of you at this sad time.

    God Bless
