Gerald (Gerry) Scott

June 22, 1945 - September 2, 2018


Gerry passed away in the South Okanagan Hospital in Oliver, B.C. with his family at his side.  He is predeceased by his father, Avery Scott in 1979, his mother Elsie (Hamilton) Whitelock in 1986, stepfather Thomas Whitelock in 2003 and his stepson Kenneth Calkins in 2010.

Gerry is survived by his wife Madeline Scott, his daughter Michelle Scott (Mark Roedel), son Keith Scott (Sharon) and granddaughter Amanda Malfait.  Gerry is also survived by his step children, Theresa Calkins, Valerie Coe (Terry) and Jim Calkins (Kim) as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren who called him “papa”.

Gerry was born in Red Deer, Alberta and lived in many locations in Western Canada throughout his life.  His job as flight engineer at PWA took him and his family to Yellowknife, N.W.T.  He then shifted his career to professional truck driver and eventually ended up in Fort St John, B.C. for many years until his retirement in 2010. He enjoyed driving with his wife and together they traveled the North American Continent in their motorhome.  As the song goes “I’ve been everywhere man…” describes his love of exploring.  Gerry loved fishing, woodworking, fixing things and tinkering in his garage and shop.  He will be missed, and we hope he catches the “big one”!
