In Loving Memory of
Joseph L. Scott
May 4, 1943 – August 6, 2023
With great sadness we announce the passing of Joseph Scott of Mississauga. Born May 4, 1943, in Strathroy, Ontario, to Alfred and Christine. Predeceased by siblings Walter, Robert, and Barbara. Survived by sisters Elsie, Alida, Roxanne, Edith, and Rosemary. He leaves behind his wife of 51 years Marie, two sons Brandon (Tracy) and Ryan (Andrea), grandchildren Jessica, Morgan, Ian and Kevin, and great-grand-daughter Amirah, along with many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Joe always put his family first no matter what, and for that he is much-loved and admired. He will always be remembered as a good husband, a caring father, and a dedicated grandfather. He never let age or health slow him down when it came to his devotion to his grandkids whom he adored.
Employed in mechanical maintenance with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) for nearly 30 years, he earned much respect from co-workers and set the gold standard with both his work ethic and efficiency. Known for tinkering, Joe spent much time in his garage or around his yard in pursuit of things to fix. One of his greatest passions was for hockey, having spent many Friday nights as a goaltender in scrimmage games, and many Saturday nights yelling at the refs on TV for their bad calls. Every winter for nearly 40 years, he spent cold Sunday mornings at outdoor rinks guiding his sons and countless other children to repeated victories as coach of the Hawks with the Oakridge Park Hockey League (OPHL). He left a legacy of coaching excellence that earned him the “Coach of the Year” award many times over, right up until March 2023 when he retired from the role.
Following a cancer diagnosis in 2009, Joe fought long and hard to defeat the disease and valiantly faced the many struggles and complications that followed, maintaining his humour and dignity throughout. We can all take comfort in knowing that, after enduring one last health-related struggle, he never gave up showing his strength or his devotion to his family before going peacefully to his final rest.
