STOKES, Scott

November 10, 1989 – January 28, 2013

Scott Stokes, beloved son of Darrell and Ingrid, passed away on January 28, 2013 at the age of 23 years.

Scott was born in Calgary and moved to Chestermere where he graduated in 2007. Scott will be dearly missed by his little sister who he shared a special bond with. Their relationship had an intuitive connectedness that was noticed by all. He always put his own needs aside, especially when he saw an opportunity to inspire and help others. His calm demeanor and witty sense of humour will not be forgotten by everyone whose lives he has touched.

Scott is survived by his parents Darrell and Ingrid; sister Sarah; grandparents, Herbert and Renate Huebner, Gordon and Audrey Stokes; uncles, Herb Huebner and Craig Stokes; aunts, Monica Huebner, Elke and her husband Dave Claughton, Kim Stokes, and Janice Stokes; cousins, Jordan and Josie Claughton, Chad Baily and Chantelle Barnes; and numerous extended family and friends. Scott was predeceased by his brothers, Cory and Stephen Stokes; grandmother Margaret Pitcher; and uncle Werner Huebner.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Scott Stokes, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

    Darrell, Ingrid & Sarah words can not express our sorrow to you all at this difficult time. Our deepest thoughts, prayers and condolences to your family from your family in Newfoundland. We can not begin to image what you all are going though. Parents are not supposed to bury their children, it goes against all supposed laws of nature! I remember meeting Scott, Sarah and their Mom when you all were in Newfoundland back the summer of 2000 and again in Feb 2001 when I was in Calgary for Aunt Marg’s funeral. Uncle Don and I both enjoyed that afternoon of site seeing, shopping, dinner, meeting Ingrid’s family and back to your home for pie and a chat. All that seems a life time ago as we all know that nothing stops for or escapes time. Treasure all you family’s memories are they will be with you forever and long after the sorrow and grief becomes bearable and passes.

    Scott was one of my first friends in Chestermere. It was a rough patch in my childhood, moving from the community I lived in my whole life to outside of Calgary. Yet it didn’t take long to make friends with Scott, he was smart and witty and always had a poignant one-line response just waiting to slip out. I never got over his comedic timing, and although the move was rough it turned out to be a great year at Conrich.

    From the tire swings at recess, our seventh grade indoor soccer team, those Friday afternoon Smash Brothers sessions and our late night conversations over the internet, Scott was always someone I could count on for an honest, whole-hearted conversation, and a good laugh. And he will be dearly missed.

    I send my deepest condolences to his family, but I also thank them dearly, for raising such a brilliant man who I was lucky to know.

  17. I first met Scott in 1999 when we were in the same fifth grade class and we were classmates until graduation. I will always remember his quick wit and his passion for music. Scott was a truly good person and it is beyond belief that he’s gone so soon.

    All my love and condolences,

Most importantly – he was just a really nice guy. I apologize for not being able to attend the service today but wanted you to know I was thinking about Scott and the sadness you must all be feeling.
