It is with great sadness we share with you the passing of, William Spurgeon
Scott on November 25th at the CR Dist. Gen. Hospital, with the love and care
of family by his side. He is survived by his sisters Janet and Mary, sons
and daughters Wendy, Berna (Bert), Bill (Judy), Mary Ellen (Tom), Robin

grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren many nieces, nephews, and many,
many dear friends.

Bill was born May 4, 1926 in Bathurst, New Brunswick, the youngest son of
eight children; there were six boys and two girls. He worked hard as a young
lad on the family farm until the end of Word War II. Then with the help of
family, and much encouragement, he rode the train to the West Coast in
search of employment along with his brother Sam. He lived a prosperous 81
years of raising a family of seven children with Bea, working hard
throughout the North Island, mainly in the logging industry, and enjoying
his favourite hobbies: camping, fishing, farming and baking. He was most
passionate regarding his family and being a part of their lives. Bill loved
the outdoors and enjoyed making people laugh with him over his own life's
stories. We will miss his sense of humour and his teasing.
He has gone to be with all his loved ones that have gone before him.

We love you dad.
We little knew that morning, that god was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories; your love is still our guide;
And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
