In Loving Memory
Raymond Oscar Scott
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Ray. A Husband, Father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather.
He is survived by the love of his life and best friend for 64 years Stella. His children Kim Kryger (Rob) and Daniel Scott (Michele). His Grandchildren Brittany Kryger, Whitney Renney (Craig), Matthew Kryger (Taya), and Joshua Scott (Catherine). His Great Grandchildren Evan Renney, Beau Kryger, Maya Kryger, Lianna Scott, and Jamie Scott. He loved them all so much and we are very sure they will remember a game they played with him called “Papa Monster” while chasing them all over the Knutsford hills with a sheet on his head.
He was predeceased by his Mother and Father Thomas and Winnifred Scott, Sister Ruth Arnt, and Brothers Ches Scott and Lester Stringer. Survived by his sisters Eileen Campbell, Marge Ewacheski (John), and Terry Scott.
Ray loved God and Jesus with all his heart, soul, and mind. He read his bible daily.
Ray played professional baseball in the States in 1957 but decided to come home because he missed his family. The Kelowna team signed him to play for them and this is where he met the love of his life Stella. The rest is history.
Later he moved to Kamloops and was employed by Dearborn Motors. Upon his eventual retirement, he continued with his quarter horse business at his Knutsford ranch. From a work standpoint, this was the “Horse Whisperer’s” dream job.
In later years he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Ray and Stella decided to sell off their little piece of heaven for a simpler life.
We wish to thank the amazing staff at Ponderosa Lodge. We cannot say enough about the excellent and loving care. Thank you to Dr. Cribb who was always willing to talk.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”.
