Scott, William (Bill) Arnold Victor
May 24, 1922 – May 23, 2006
Bill passed away peacefully surrounded by his family just one day short of his 84th birthday, and his 61st wedding anniversary. He is survived by his loving wife Margaret, his daughters: Carol (Kevin), Shannon (Don), and granddaughter Kate. He was predeceased by his daughter Patricia in 2000.
William was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and was employed by the C.N.R. and Air Canada. At that time he was the youngest claims agent in Canada. Later he became the General Manager (claims) during his 46 year career with the railway.
He enlisted with the R.C.A.F. during WWII and returned to Winnipeg when discharged. He moved to Courtenay, BC in 1991. Bill was a person of integrity and had outstanding ability in his profession.
He was a lover of nature and animals. Other interests were Dixieland music and curling and traveling to see new places. He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.
The family wishes to thank the staff of St. Joseph’s Hospital, second floor nurses and Dr. Fitzpatrick and Dr. McNee for their care and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Comox Valley S.P.C.A., P.O. Box 1284, Comox, BC V9M 7Z8 would be appreciated.
A Memorial celebrating Bill’s life will be held at his home on Sunday, June 4th, 2:00-4:00pm.
