It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Scotty, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Friend.
Scotty was predeceased by his sons, Scott and Gregory Sneddon, birth parents Margaret & Alex Hogg, adoptive parents George & Isabell Sneddon, brother Jim Sneddon, sister Millicent Hogg & great grandchild Trae.
Scotty is survived by his loving wife of 66 years Gail Sneddon & daughter Laurie Godfrey, brother Jack (Nancy), sister Anne Slacke.
Scotty leaves behind 9 grandchildren: Brock (Louise), Justin, Carly, Cody, Joel, Greg, Dannielle, Casey, Michael. 10 great grandchildren: Carmen, Nicholas, Claire, Mason, Ryder, Cohen, Harlan, Carter, Julie, Tyson. Also numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Scotty came to Canada from Scotland as a young lad of 15 years. First to Alberta and then made his way to Vancouver Island. While at a dance at Pleasant Valley Hall (checking out the lady’s) met his future wife Gail.The two became inseparable from that moment on. After a whirlwind courtship, short engagement they married months later in 1954.
Scotty worked construction as a crane operator that took his family on many moves and adventures across BC & the Yukon. The family finally settled in Cedar where Scotty & Gail decided to buy their first Crane, they were so busy that they just kept adding more. They had a great crew of crane operators that soon became part family.
Probably the only company that the owner was also voted the shop steward. Scotty donated his time & equipment to help in the community, sponsored a Race Car and Ball Teams. He even brought his Crane for the grandchildren’s show & tells.
Scotty & Gail love to travel. Made trips back to Scotland to see family, many trips to New Zealand, Hawaii, etc..etc.. and added numerous Cruises.
Upon retirement bought their first Motor Home & off the two went travelling across Canada & the US. Being a family man many trips included his children, their spouses and grandchildren.
His family would like to thank the Nurses & Doctors at NRGH especially those in Palliative Care who not only cared for Scotty but his family too. Making Gail comfortable & able to lay his side to their final goodbye here on earth. Also would like to thank the staff at Kiwanis for the comfort they continue to give.
Gail & Laurie are especially thankful for family, Leanne, Vicki and Carly for all their continued support and love through these last few weeks. Bless you.
Due to covid-19 a Celebration of Life will be at a later date.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonalds House or Autism. We thank you.
