AVISON, Scott Henry Avison - Obituary | Print |

AVISON, Scott Henry -

Avison_ScottIt is with great sadness that the family of Scott Henry Avison shares with you that on Monday, June 22, 2015, Scott passed away peacefully in his home with family by his side and the love of family and friends in his heart.

Scott’s was a courageous battle. Armed with a joy of life, humour and a love of sharing knowledge and experiences with others, this quiet, kind-hearted man remained optimistic and thoughtful until he took his last breath. Scott quite simply left nothing in the tank. He lived a full life. He lead by example.

Scott was a best friend and husband to Michele, an awesome dad to Julia, Kate, Shannon (Blake), Kendall (Jason), Greg (Marie), and a fun, adventurous “G-Pa” to Isla, Gwen and Morgan.

Scott was a loving son to Lois and Dick, a lifelong admirer and brother of Shannon, Heather (Roy), and Wendy and a wonderful friend, cousin, nephew, uncle, son-in-law and brother-in-law.

Although Scott’s life was shorter than he hoped we will carry him forward in our hearts so he can share every new adventure, milestone and celebration with us. In his quiet, unassuming way he will continue to be a part of all of our important moments.

We will celebrate the life of Scott on Saturday, July 4th at 10:30 am at DESTEFANO FUNERAL HOME, 1289 Keith Ross Drive, Oshawa (off Taunton Road backing onto the airport… he picked the spot!) 905-440-3595.  Light refreshments will follow the service in the DeStefano Funeral Home “Aviation Lounge.”

In lieu of flowers, or as an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation (HPB Fund) in memory of Scott Avison. This can be done at DESTEFANO FUNERAL HOME or by calling PMH directly at 1-866-224-6560.
