Scott Patterson

Suddenly on Friday August 30, 2013, as the result of an accident, Scott Gordon Patterson of R.R. 3 Newbury in his 53rd year.   Scott was a born farmer.  He became the next generation to care for the land and truly loved his farming life.  He devoted more than 30 years to trucking sweet corn, making many life-long friends “in the corn patch”.  He owned and operated a snowplow truck for the MTO for over 25 years, clearing the way for travellers on the 401.  He was a faithful elder at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, Wardsville.  Scott visited many ballparks in Southwestern Ontario, through his own days of playing baseball and then watching his daughters.  He was passionate about all of his activities – but most of all he loved all his girls. His competitive nature, sense of humor and hard work ethic will remain in the hearts of his family, as they cherish his memory.  They were truly blessed to have him in their life.
