    Our sincere condolences go to Shirley and the entire family.
    We met Graham (Pistol) when he volunteered to assist as a Cub Scout Leader at McDougall United Church in the early sixties. He was a dedicated and fun loving guy. The kids took to him well.
    I think of him often, and remember some of the fun things we did as a group.

    To the Scott family,
    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Graham Scott. I remember Mr. Scott as the so very nice neighbor a few doors up the street. But I also remember that without Mr. Scott there would have been no Fairview Teen Club. He was instrumental in setting up & running it for all of us growing up in Fairview in the 60’s. He was such a kind man, patient and understanding.
