VINCENT, John Scott. Oct 26, 1934 ~ July 24, 2012. We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Scotty, as he was known to everyone who knew him. Scotty was born in Otorohanga, New Zealand and immigrated to America when he was 15 years old. He made his way through the USA and finally settled in Canada. As a member of the New Zealand Navy his love for the water gave him many years of enjoyment. Although his life had many different career choices, his love for the water was the deepest. He spent many years in White Rock, BC and was deeply involved in the White Rock Legion, Branch #8, which he was a lifelong member. In his retirement years he donated his time helping out at the “Beef and Brew”, tending his many many flowers in his yard and his nightly ritual of shooting pool and playing cards with Elsie – something they loved to do. Scotty was predeceased by his mother Emma, father Stanley and brother Neil. He is survived by his partner and best friend Elsie, brother Les (Esma), daughter Donna, grandson David, daughter Carol (Robert), grandson Dwayne (Michelle and great grandson Micah), daughter Cheryl, granddaughter Camille, grandson Clinton (Kate, great granddaughter Quinn), sons Curtis and Cameron and the apples of his eye – grandchildren Ashley and Shaun, along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins in New Zealand. Respecting Scotty’s wishes there will no funeral service nor celebration of life. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the White Rock Legion, Branch #8, 2290 152 St. White Rock, BC. V4A 4N9. The family would like to thank the Dr’s, nurses and staff members, especially Dr. Sarah Makhdoom, who cared for him during his illness and gave him the most wonderful and passionate care. We would also like to thank our close neighbors for their loving help and support during this most difficult time. The Vincent and Burback Families.
