Scott, William (Bill) Homer, age 73, of Mount Uniacke, NS passed away suddenly at home on November 14, 2019.
Born in Kentville, NS, he was son to the late Dorothy (Parker) and John Scott.
Bill was a proud grandfather of his three grandsons, Evyn, Liam, and Matthew; a loving and supportive father to his two daughters, Shannon and Stacey, and a truly devoted husband for 49 years to his recently (May 2019) deceased wife, Sandy (Reid). Bill was the epitome of a dedicated family man, and he will be dearly missed.
After growing up in Souris, PEI, Bill ventured off “The Island” and worked most of his life in sales and retail management. He worked his way up the chain at Towers Department Store, then Zellers (owned by Hudson’s Bay Co.) which saw he and his family experience many different places including Belleville and Scarborough in Ontario; Kentville, Delhaven, and Lower Sackville in Nova Scotia; Quispamsis (near Saint John) in New Brunswick, and then finally settling his family in Mount Uniacke, Nova Scotia where they remained into retirement.When not working, Bill loved to garden, and was a skilled handyman and woodworker. He was recently exploring new social activities like lawn bowling and curling.
Bill is survived by his daughters, Shannon Scott-Tibbetts (Sean) of Timberlea, NS, Stacey Scott (Jonathan Histon) of Guelph, ON; brother, John (Wanda) Scott of Fortune Bay, PEI, brother Lester (Anne-Marie) Scott of Souris, PEI, step-mother Pauline Scott of Souris, PEI, three grandchildren, and extended family.
A Time to Remember gathering will be held from 1-4 PM on Saturday Dec 14 th at Atlantic Funeral Home Sackville Chapel with Eulogy and Words of Remembrance starting at 2 PM.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
The recent years seemed to be filled with the passing of our dearest friends, Margaret, Sandy’s sister. A dear Soul that the smallest pleasure in life made her so happy.
Then Sandy who was such a positive force in her friend’s lives, and now Bill. A dedicated husband, devoted father, a very proud grandfather of his beautiful grandsons and he felt he was a very blessed father in law.
Whenever we leave home and drive passed their lovely family home, where daughters Snannon and Stacey grew up, we see it’s now empty. No more seeing Bill pottering around the front and back garden with the dogs following everywhere. A home that was filled with love and lots of activity.
If there is any comfort to be had at this sad time it’s in the knowledge that he is reunited with his beloved Sandy and Margaret, and that their much loved dogs are now in a permanent loving family home.
Bill you were always loved and will always be missed.
See you later.
