Mar 29, 2018
Scott entered into the presence of our Lord on March 29, 2018 at the age of 57. He is survived by the love of his life Shannon, daughter Sydney, son Jordan, sister Heather Daverne, brothers Howard (Diane) Brown, Darryl (Linda) Brown, Bevan (Lisa) Daverne, Doug (Megan) Daverne, parents Dave and Lorette Brown, in laws Fred and Leona Mentanko, sis-in-laws Sharlene, Shelaine and Roxanne and some awesome nieces and nephews.
Scott was like a smooth stone skipping across the lake leaving circles every time it skims the water and his ripple effect was profound. From the inner circle of his closest friends and family to the wider circle which included the downtrodden and those marginalized by society and everyone in between, Scott had a way of making people feel like they truly mattered.
He was a humble man who, without fanfare, quietly helped people in small and big ways. If a waitress was having a bad day, he’d leave her an extra big tip and that says everything about the man he was. He chose to see the best in people and, with genuine warmth and humour, make them feel as important as they were to him. Scott was devoted to his family and looked after his in laws as though they were his own. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for his family and friends.
Scott was born in Edmonton, AB and raised in Saskatoon, SK. But he embraced all that the Okanagan had to offer when he and Shannon moved to Kelowna in 1991 to embark on their journey together as newlyweds with a new baby. He had a successful 30 year career in real estate and many of his business associates became close lifelong friends. He built a reputation based on honesty and going the extra mile. His personal relationships were paramount to him as evidenced by the many close friends who, in his last days, surrounded him with love.
From skiing, golfing, hitting the back country trails on his mountain bike, endless hours on the lake with his kids, or his recent work on his pride and joy, a 1965 Chris Craft Commander, Scott lived his life to the fullest.
Scott’s faith in God was strong and in his last days on this earth he made it his mission to make sure that everyone he loved knew Jesus the way he did. He leaves a legacy of faith and love and the ripple effect of this extraordinary man will be felt into eternity.
Shannon, Sydney and Jordan would love you to join us in a Celebration of Life held at Hotel El Dorado (500 Cook Rd.) on April 18, 2018 at 1 pm.
