Arthur Scott, beloved husband of Muriel Scott of Calgary, passed away on Monday, April 28, 2008 at the age of 93 years.
Arthur was born in Port-aux-Basques, Newfoundland. He joined the Merchant Marines in 1939 and served in WWII until 1946, traveling all over the world serving his country. Arthur moved to Sydney, NS and married after the war in 1948. He worked at Colby School for many years as a caretaker and was an active member of the Church of England. Later in life, he and Muriel came west to be near family. No matter where Arthur resided, he always thought of himself as a “Newfoundlander”. He was a prolific poet, writing about his early years in Newfoundland and his war experiences. Arthur’s great interest was building model sailing boats and gardening. He was also an avid fisherman and had a great love for the outdoors.
Besides his loving wife Muriel, Arthur is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, Gordon and Georgina, Jim and Marie and one daughter and son-in-law, Barbara MacKenzie and Rick Rudolf, all of Calgary; four grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and two sisters, Pearl Martin of Sydney, NS and Dorothy MacNeil of Halifax, NS.
