DALY, John 'Scott' - (1959 – 2018) – Scott was 59 when he died in the comfort of loved ones at his home in Oshawa, December 9, 2018.
Scott spent important moments with childhood friends, ball hockey buddies and work friends during his final week at home.
He was well cared for by his stepdaughter, Eleanor Robertson, and caregivers from Bayshore and Paramed, especially Miriam and Sherry. These women contributed so much to his comfort and quality of life.
Scott was born on February 21, 1959 to parents Joyce and Ken Daly, and was welcomed by his sister Cherie. He was a premature baby and fought the odds to survive. Even then, he was a fighter.
Scott will be greatly missed by his girl friend, G’Well Robertson, stepdaughter, Eleanor “Elle” Robertson, sister Cherie, many cousins, his Aunt Shirley Witt and Wayne Lawrence, Uncle George Kramer, Uncle Ross and Mary Daly and longtime friends from his school days and his years as a firefighter, and his many sports buddies.
Retiring on May 31st, 2015, he looked forward to more time to spend on his home, with friends and travelling.
Although he was diagnosed with cancer he continued to live life as usual, participating in his beloved sports and cooking for his loved ones. His cheesecakes will be missed.
Cremation has taken place. Scott requested no special services or fanfare, however, his family and friends would like to celebrate his life on December 28th, at the Oshawa Golf Club from 1 to 4 pm.
