Eulogy by Ashley Bellisle (Granddaughter) Almar Robert Scott (my Grandpa) was born July 20, 1927 at Lilac, SK to John and Mary Scott. Almar was the 4th in the family of 6. The family moved north in 1932 to Rothmeire district. There, they made life-long friends and neighbours. The kids attended school at Rothmiere. Luckily Grandpa was able to get his schooling until grade 7. Times were tough growing up, but there was always a bountiful garden, and plenty of fish in the lake. Grandpa married Shirley Nelson in 1954. Together they took over his parents farm at Rabbit Lake. Grandpa and Grandma had 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. Grandpa was addressed and answered to many names including Dad, Grandpa, Uncle and Bud. Aunt Elsie was 3 when Grandpa was born. And since she cound not say Almar, she called him Bud and the name stuck for the rest of his life. Grandpa's first job was for Bill Cook as a mechanic in Spiritwood. He drove cat for Johnny McDonald, Gordon Scott, Pete and Gus Peterson and the Cherwoniak Brothers. He also worked as a mechanic in Spiritwood for Andy and Ray Lavoie. He did field work for Danny Rogers as well. Grandpa was a versatile man. When he wasn't busy working, he was busy tinkering. He always had many projects on the go, and it didn't matter if it was a chainsaw or a caterpillar, Grandpa would tackle it. When the kids were young they got into their share of mischief. Mom tells a story of when they tried to shove a cow through the barn window. The cow obviously didn't fit and the wall came down with the cow, but Daddy's girl would never get in as much trouble as the boys. Late in '75, Grandpa showed everyone how tough he really was. While bailing, he was caught between the PTO shaft and the hitch. I can only imagine the injuries. But Grandpa picked himself up, drove to the neighbours and ended up in the hospital for 6 weeks. Against the odds, Grandpa was able to regain full use of his body and make a full recovery. Grandpa and Grandma were married for 27 years before they went their separate ways. Once again Grandpa picked himself up and remarried in '87 to Diane Moen. Grandpa wasn't one to be alone. They made their home in Robin Hood. Grandpa found joy in the little things in life. Mom would take Louise and I over there, and he would say "let's go collect the eggs" - off we would go - first we would feed the hens for a distraction - then we would peek under the hens - eggs yes, but also kittens!!! Kittens tucked under the hens!! Wonderful memories - Then he would sternly tell me not to feed the hens any grass, he liked pale eggs. That wouldn't stop me. Grandpa would start walking back up the hill to the house and then I would be pushing grass through the wires. I haven't changed a bit. Grandpa would make one of his famous breakfasts for me when I would sleep over. We would make thick slice bacon, home-made hashbrown potatoes and eggs, all fried in the bacon drippings! on the side, one or two of his home grown tomatoes - whole! So good! Grandpa sure enjoyed his garden. Louise and I were often in trouble for browsing in his tomato patch. We thought we were doing him a big favor by picking the biggest, whether they were green or red. Grandpa retired to Glaslyn. And while I was working there at Scotia Bank, I would always count on a home cooked meal and a heart-to-heart talk. I heard a lot of old time stories from this honorable man. I am sure Christine, Robby and Louise each have their own special memories of Grandpa and the times they spent together. Now please join me in my Grandpa's favorite Prayer: God grant me the serentity to accept the things I cannot change - The courage to change the things I can - and the Wisdom to know the difference. We love you Grandpa and will always cherish the times we spent together. CARD OF THANKS The family of Almar Scott would like to express their gratitude to all the special people who meant so much to Almar & Diane. All the kind words, visits, flowers and donations of food, prayers and love meant a lot to Almar in his final days and the memories will be cherished by his wife Diane.
