Richard "Wayne" Scott

Feb 28th 1953 — Sep 26th 2022 (69 years)

Biography

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Richard “Wayne” Scott (Papa / Eway), of Bedford, NS at the QEII Health Science Centre, Victoria General Site, on September 26, 2022.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Wayne at a later date.

Wayne was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland and was the son of the late Helen and Roland Scott.

He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Anita, son Ryan (Sarah), daughter Brittany (Jonathan), precious granddaughters Elodie and Coco, sister Paula (Karl), brother Rollie (Elizabeth), adopted sister Patsy (Laurie), nephew Chris, sisters-in-law Joy Shields (Bruce), Sherri Davis-Barron (Lee), several nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and many close cousins and family in Logy Bay, Nfld. He was predeceased by his mother and father, Helen (Mahon) and Roland Scott, as well as his sister-in-law Gail Wagstaff.

Wayne passed away peacefully with his family by his side. He was the best husband, father, brother, Papa, cousin, uncle and friend anyone could ever ask for. He adored his family and enjoyed every minute he got to be with them. He is well known for his infectious laugh and would love to hum a tune now and then! He loved his golf and belonged to Brookfield Golf and Country Club for many years where he enjoyed countless games with his great friend Rodney. He also enjoyed his trips to Tim’s with Riley to visit Laura, followed by many a breakfast club meeting with Paula and Roll. Wayne was the kindest person and was always there to lend a hand to anyone who needed help. He took great pride in the many projects he was able to be a part of with his kids, most recently building a new deck together with Ryan and helping Britt and Jonathan renovate their home in Terence Bay.

Wayne worked for 32 years as a Lead Station Attendant for Air Canada and after he retired, he took a job with Ambassatours driving tour buses, where he became a “PhD”, or “Professional Highway Driver,” as we would often call him. That was another job that he thoroughly enjoyed. He received so many poems and cards from passengers on those trips and did especially well when he and his friend Donna worked together! A highlight of that career for him was driving out to Vancouver for the 2010 Olympics. He was thrilled when he found out he would be the official driver for the Finland men’s hockey team and get to take them to all of their games.

Wayne was a great hockey fan. He loved to watch and cheer on his children while they played hockey and ringette growing up, and in recent years he was just as proud cheering on his granddaughter from the stands. Wayne was also involved with the Sackville Blazers Junior B Hockey Club for many years and truly enjoyed volunteering his time with them.

Papa Eway is best known for his smile and laughter and his quick wit. He was always laughing, even when there wasn’t anything to laugh about, he laughed. He will be dearly missed by all who loved and knew him.

We would like to extend our deepest thanks to the doctors and nurses at the QEII Cancer Centre and Palliative care team. In memory of Wayne, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.

Once Sarah and Ryan became a couple, we blended our families for holiday dinners and with ease and comfort we celebrated together. Wayne's ready smile and openness lent greatly to that ease. When speaking of Sarah at Ryan's and her wedding, he began with the phrase, "Ahh! Sarah, my darling." That one phrase endeared him to us forever. We valued greatly his love of family.

I first met Wayne in the lunch room at Sackville High.

He would arrive to pick Anita up. All the guys would move away from her when we saw him coming.

Later I would go to work for Air Canada and realized he was not the tough guy we thought.

His smile, his laughter were infectious. Humour was above and beyond. What a guy!

I will miss you, from working with to seeing you in a rink.

Anita, you lucked out when you found him.

Our deepest condolences to you, your family and in-laws.

Love, Dana & Linda

You were so blessed to have had each other for so long. Everyone knew that you were truly meant for each other. You didn’t have to know him for very long to know what an exceptional person he was.

I had the pleasure meeting Wayne through the Sackville Blazers hockey club when he was a volunteer, and I was a coach. I certainly remember his infectious laugh, and his ability to connect with everyone he met. When he was a bus driver for Ambassatours and he was able to drive the Blazers to some of our away games it was always a good night spending the time chatting with Wayne on some of our long drives and sharing many great laughs. I will miss seeing Wayne and hearing his laugh...

My husband Lloyd and I are very saddened that Wayne has passed away. We were great friends in high school and then again reconnected when our boys were in minor hockey. Always a smile and a giggle were his trademarks. He adored his family

There was a period of time before he met Anita that the three of us did everything together...movies, dances and just hanging out in Waverley. Thank you Wayne for having made our lives richer with your friendship. Our deepest sympathy to all of his family and friends.
