Scott Douglas Taylor
Scott Douglas Taylor of North Vancouver passed away on March 13, 2023, after a brief battle with liver cancer, at the age of 66. Scott joins his mother, Gwendoline Hazel Dawn Watson and father, Albert “Ace” William Taylor. He is survived by his beloved daughter, Amanda, and grandson, Alexander, as well as his sister Heather and nephew Taran. He was extremely thrilled and proud to become a grandpa.
Scott was a handyman and jack-of-all-trades who loved solving problems. Always physically active, he loved sports, including hockey, baseball, and soccer, and would throw his whole body to make a play or a save. He enjoyed the outdoors and skiing, sharing many outings with his daughter. His greatest passion was music, and he taught himself to play the piano and learned music by ear. He was also an excellent singer and he often took to the karaoke stage to share a song; his singing brought a tear to many an eye over the years. He was known as a loyal friend, and a kind, generous, and hardworking man, with a quick wit and self-deprecating sense of humour. He is deeply missed and mourned by friends and family.
A memorial gathering will happen at Guelph Park (“Dude Chilling Park” - 2390 Brunswick St, Vancouver) on Saturday April 8 at 1pm. All are welcome and encouraged to come to share a story and pay their respects.
