REYNOLDS, Scott David

August 29, 1968 – October 23, 2011

Scott David Reynolds of Calgary and Toronto,  passed away on Sunday, October 23, 2011 at the age of 43 years.

Scott had a great laugh. You know, one of those laughs that would make you smile even if you didn’t hear the joke. We miss him dearly. He was a cherished son to Kiltie and Herb Reynolds and a loving big brother to Sean and sister-in-law JoAnn. He was the “best uncle ever” to his niece (Erin) and nephew (Jackson) and friend to many around the world. Scott first asserted his independence and strong will at a young age and kept his parents on their toes right from the start. Scott completed his first post secondary degree at the University of Calgary where he studied History and Business and found lifelong friends in the Delta Upsilon Fraternity. His interests lead him to travel and study Spanish in Mexico. His continued interest in the world lead him to complete a Master’s Degree in History and then a second in Political Science from the University of Toronto where he made his second home for almost fifteen years and pursued work as a tax consultant. A recent trip to Australia with friends was a highlight for Scott. He loved seeing all kinds of birds in the wild that had been the inspiration for his life long companions, Coco and Ziggy. No matter where he travelled, Scott was always quick to make new friends and share his views of the world and his passions with others. Possessing impeccable taste, a dark sense of humour and a sharp wit, you could always count on Scott to bring you up to date with the latest trends in fashion and pop culture, and where to get the best feather boas in Canada.

A gathering celebrating Scott’s life and his courageous battle with cancer will be held at Willow Park Golf and Country Club (639 Willow Park Drive S.E.) on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through In lieu of flowers, interested parties are welcome to make donations to the Princess Margaret Hospital Cancer Research Fund (Toronto), or to one’s favorite charity. The family would also like to thank all of Scott’s health care workers in Calgary and Toronto. The family will be planting a tree in his memory and in the words of his niece, “I hope it grows big enough so I can build a tree house with a special trap door to keep all of my love for him inside.” Scott’s spirit is free and flying high now, and we will always remember him and the joy he brought us all.

In living memory of Scott Reynolds, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

  1. Herb, Kiltie, Shaun, JoAnn, Erin, Jackson We know how difficult the last few months have been for all of you and Scott. Frank and I had a very special friendship with Scott, one that only comes once in a lifetime. I sorry we can’t be there on Saturday but I still can’t fly. I could always depend on Scott to be my anchor, he had an incredible talent in helping you to see all the angles. I will miss that the most. When we said goodbye when he came home to Calgary I never lost hope for him and prayed for a miracle. We also hoped we could drive out to see him. Scott cherished and loved all of so much which we could see when we were all together when he was still in Toronto. Please accept our sincerely sympathy and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love Jim Fraser & Frank Mirandola.

    Herb, Kiltie, Shaun, JoAnn, Erin, Jackson, Wendell and I considered Scott as one of our best friends. We met him shortly after he moved to Toronto and we quickly became friends. Yes, his laugh was infectious and his sense of humour even more so. Scott was one of these rare personalities that you only meet once or twice in ones life. When he came to Australia with us, he was like a kid in a candy store. Everything was new and awesome to him. We are so glad that he came with us. He will for ever live on in our memories and we miss him oh so much.

    Through Scott we met his wonderful parents Kiltie and Herb. I admire your courage and strength throughout this difficult period and have the utmost respect for you. I will miss the odd drinks with you both and the dinner parties. Herb once said “we normally don’t fly this far for a dinner party”, and boy oh boy, a dinner party it was.

    Please accept our deepest and most sincere condolences from both Wendell and myself and please know that you are all in our thoughts prayers through this difficult period.

    Love Gary Innerbichler and Wendell Leadbeater, Toronto Canada

    Dear Reynolds Family,

    Even though I never had the pleasure to meet Scott I did have the pleasure to hear how great he was by speaking to his father, Herb. Herb was extremely proud of Scott. My condolences to your family.

  8. Herb and Kiltie, am very sorry to hear about your son’s passing. Steve Leliever told me about it the other day and I read about it in the paper today. Though I didn’t know him, I’m sure he was quite an outstanding young man.
    Unfortunately, my wife and I leave for a week’s holidays this Saturday and I can’t attend the celebration of his life at Willow Park. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

  12. Herb and Family,

    I was very saddened to hear of Scott’s passing. I did not know him well but I expect he is much like his Dad and that means the world has lost a great individual. My thoughts and prayers are with you all!

    Kiltie, Herb & Family, Please accept our sincere sympathy. Although I haven’t Scott since he was a lad – I will always remember his quirky sense of humour, as he would stop to visit his mom’s “Stitch & Bitch” Monday morning group. He always had a smile on his face, and a quick quip! I know you will have many happy memories of your son.

  14. To my friend and teammate, Scottymate,

    You are one of the bravest men I’ve ever met. To help me out with my problem of a stupid yellow hat, when you were fighting for your life, I can’t tell you how much you helped me that night … I will be honoured to wear your yellow boa forever on Travian. (And I will!)

    Whenever I see the sunshine, I will think of yellow and I will think of you. Trust me on this.
    Thank you for giving me a positive on yellow and thank you for being my Travian friend.

    Godspeed, Scotty. It was a privilege to know you… to witness true courage and unquenchable grace in a man, a friend… and to see such ironclad determination to spit in Fate’s eye and extract every last crumb of humour from each moment. Rest in peace, my friend.

  18. Shaun Curtis :

    I am very saddened to hear of the passing of Scott who was a student housemate of mine in Toronto almost 20 years ago. Having lost contact with Scott in 2000, after moving back to the UK, I was unaware of his death in 2011. Learning of his passing has come as a considerable shock to me.

    Scott was a genuine, considerate and great friend. As an overseas student who had just arrived in Toronto, I was grateful to experience Scott’s friendship over a four year period. He demonstrated the great hospitality that one anticipates from a true Canuck. I regret we lost contact Scott, but you are not forgotten.

    My sincere condolences to Scott’s family.

    Shaun Curtis, Exeter, United Kingdom
