    We regret to advise of the death of Robert Dunbar “Bob” Scott on 11 February 2004 at the Chilliwack, BC General Hospital at the age of 86 years.

    Bob was born in Galt, ON.  He worked numerous jobs and attended the Ontario College of Arts from 1936 - 1937.  He was a veteran of the Second World War who joined the Army in 1941 and served overseas with the Royal Canadian Engineers in 11th Field Company in the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division.  During his time overseas, he practised his artistic skills by submitting several cartoon drawings to the British Army humorous magazine "Blighty".

    Bob was discharged from the Army in 1946 and shortly after opened a photography studio as well working for General Motors in Windsor, ON.  He rejoined the Army Permanent Force in 1948 and was sent to Camp Chilliwack.  He served at various camps in Canada and settled in Chilliwack upon retiring in 1963.  Bob then enjoyed an 18-year career with the Chilliwack School District #33 as a Custodian until he retired at the age of 65 years.

    A private family service will be held at Henderson's Funeral Home on 14 February. Donations may be made to the Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or to a charity of one’s choice. {dcMay2017gd}[zsd, zpp]
