Watson Walter "Scotty" Scott

1921 - 2012

 

W.W. Scott

Harwich, England, May 27, 1945

Watson Walter Scott peacefully passed away in hospital, surrounded by and with the love of his family, in his 91st year. Devoted and loving husband for 66 years to Janet “Jenny” (nee McKenzie) who was originally of New Stevenson, Scotland. Much loved father of the late Ralph McKenzie Scott (September 2009), Ian Campbell Scott, Heather Morag Scott Bart (Jean-Claude Bart) of Geneva, Switzerland, and Jane Fiona Scott. Doting grandfather of the late Rebecca Karine Bart (May 1999).

 

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, he was the son of the late Walter Watson Scott and Olive Madeline Anna Bilton. He is also predeceased by his sister Madeline Forsberg (June 2006). He will also be missed by his niece Judy Forsberg of Vancouver and nephew Harold Forsberg of Thailand.

 

Scotty began his career with service to his country as a Volunteer with the Royal Canadian Navy on November 11, 1939 – North Atlantic Convoy, then was on loan to the Royal Navy 1943 – 1945 and saw action in the Mediterranean and the 2nd Front, with Radio and Communications. He was discharged June 1946 from the Navy.

 

He then was RCAF Squadron Leader June 1953 – June 1960, worked in Scotland 1961 and then came to Ottawa to join the Federal Government with Department of Transport – Department of Communications 1962 – 1981 retiring as a Senior Director in the Department of Communications.

 

During his successful career he did spend time in Geneva, Switzerland with International Telecommunications Union 1969 – 1972, opting to return to Canada and the Federal Government.

 

After retiring he did work as a part-time consultant for many years in Geneva, but most of all he spent his time enjoying his family and the cottage at Bob’s Lake, Ontario.

 

The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the nurses and doctors at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital on A3 and A4.

 

 

I remember Scotty very fondly from my years in the Department of Communications. I always respected and looked up to him for his quiet, courteous and unruffled manner. Enjoyed meeting him from time time out grocery shopping in Stittsville.


I will miss you Scotty: You were a great guy !!
