Arthur Scott

May 11, 1946 - July 3, 2010


On Saturday July 3, 2010, Mr. Arthur Bruce Scott of Oliver passed away at the South Okanagan General Hospital at the age of 64 years.
Arthur is survived by his daughters Vanessa Una Scott-Sabic and Jesse Laine Marchand; son Julian Arthur Scott; his sister Pauline Theodor; niece Carrie Lee Theodor; and nephew Michael Brandon Theodor as well as many other family members and friends.
Arthur was born in Thirsk, England on May 11, 1946 and arrived in Canada in 1959. He was a long-time resident of Oliver and a prominent realtor in the community. He was most well-known for his passion for music and his skill at the guitar. Arthur was musically influenced by John Lennon, the Beatles, and Eric Clapton, among many others, and his renditions of their music will be greatly missed.
A casual memorial gathering will be held between 1:00 – 3:00 P.M. Saturday July 24, 2010 at the Oliver Community Hall.
Condolences and tributes may be directed to the family by visiting

“Life… is like a grapefruit. It’s orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast.” – Douglas Adams

Here’s to my father who lived life to the fullest and would never have had just a half a grapefruit for breakfast. The world has lost a very talented person. Take care dad.

From: Virginia Durocher
Relation: Friend to Elaine and Jesse

Dear Jesse,

I am so very sorry to hear about your Dad. Even though I didn’t know him personally, I understand about losing someone so dear to you. I would have been at the service, but I will be in Ontario, with my mom. A big hug to you and your mom.

With love,

From: Jeannette Ashton
Relation: Brother -in-law

Dear Jesse..Thinking of you at this time….Time heals all……….Love Aunt Jeannette

From: Colin Blair
Relation: Co-worker and friend

Arthur, you will be missed! You where a man with many tallents. I will remember all that you have taught and shared with me and try to follow some of that wisdom.

Your friend


From: Koreen Scott
Relation: First Wife

Last fall, just prior to the birth of his first Grandchild, Lilyana, Arthur emailed me. Feeling somewhat sentimental, he reminisced about the early days in North Vancouver when Vanessa and Julian were born. “Those were the good old days,” he said. And they were. Time will never erase the memory of those precious days. Love always, Koreen.
Sadness also for my brother Lorne at the loss of an old friend. Scotty taught him how to play guitar.
