Scott Thomas ANDERSON

In Loving Memory of

Scott Thomas Anderson

Scott Thomas Anderson was tragically taken from us on May 30, 2007 in Abbotsford, BC. He was 39.

Scott was born in Ashcroft, BC on October 13, 1967. He resided with his family in Clinton until 1973, when they moved to Kamloops, where Scott spent many hours at Sagebrush Downs sharing the same love for the racehorses as his dad did. Wherever you saw Tom, Scott was close behind. After graduating from Kam High in 1984, Scott worked at the Heffley and Rayleigh Stores. With encouragement from family he moved to Spruce Grove, Alberta to pursue a career in Sheet Metal and became a proud member of their union. In 1989 he decided to make his home in the lower mainland and chose Abbotsford where he resided until his passing. Scott worked in the sheet metal trade for a number of years, then hired on as a security guard for a short time, and had recently returned to his former trade and was employed by Mercury Metals.

Scott loved to play pool, and met many friends through it. He was involved in a local pool league that saw him win numerous prizes and even a trip to Las Vegas. Whenever Scott was in town he liked to show his sharp-shooting skills to his nieces and nephews and always challenged them to a game or two, which he took great pride in winning. He also enjoyed playing cards, watching classic movies and rarely missed the horse races at Sagebrush Downs when he was in town. Scott led a very healthy lifestyle; he loved to cook and was always passing along the latest tofu recipes to unsuspecting family ­members. He was a very caring and compassionate man and he truly loved spending time with all of his family, they were very important to him.

Scott is survived by his parents, Tom and Irene Anderson; his four sisters Louise (Kurt) Kier; Lynn (Doug) Palmer; Lonnie (Bruce) Rolph and Shelly (Ted) Johnson; as well as his 9 nieces and ­nephews who all had such ­special meaning to him. Casey, Josh, Jamie, Stacie, Krista, Kara, Tyler, Tanis and Ryan, as well as 9 great nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins and his very special friend Erin.

A celebration of Scott’s life will be held at the Glenfair Hall, 1100 Glenfair Drive, Kamloops on June 10, between 1 and 4 pm.

The ­family wishes that any expressions of sympathy take the form of donations to MADD, Suite 101-455 East Columbia St., New Westminster, BC V3L 3X6 or on-line at www.madd.ca
